Hello everyone. I’ve decided to get a 13″ Spectre for a test (how this ultrabook feels, screen, ergonomics, battery life etc.) – I’m considering getting 13″ Spectre laptop with 8th Gen CPU for my eGPU setup once it will be available.

As for now I was able to check how it works with current i7-7500U 13″ Spectre with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD, 4K screen.

Everything was plug-n-play, eGPU are officially supported on this laptop. Thunderbolt 3 controller  (15D2) has 4 lanes. 

AKiTiO Node, however, doesn’t charge this laptop – HP restricted such feature for unknown reasons. 

I also noticed that maximum possible H2D value in CUDA-Z is slightly higher comparing to my ASUS UX501VW laptop implementation.

I’ve tested some games, due dual-core U CPU many or them were performing worse comparing to HQ CPU implementation.

Hi, I have the same laptop as you except mine has an internal Nvidia 940mx. Would your setup still work?

It will work, but you will have slightly less bandwidth (some of the PCIe lanes are allocated to the 940MX). It’s not the end of the world (it will still be better than a TB2 connection) but there is a downside to that 940MX in there unfortunately.
