laptop has mini pci ex
should I buy this ?
thank you so much for your support !
Your system model link shows it has a 1TB SATA HDD and a the internal layout shows a free NVME SSD slot, perfect to use to host a x4 3.0 eGPU using a R43** M.2 eGPU adapter listed at:
thank you so much for your answer
unfortunately, I have an nvme installed.
can I use mini pci ex instead wifi?
if yes, wich adapter ?
Hi, I want to do the same thing but with the m2 slot by the end of this year. I would not recommend using mini pcie because you will get less bandwidth. If you still want to use pci exp you should buy exp gdc with pcie interface. Im going to replace my ssd with a sata ssd. If you want to use the m2 slot then you should buy the m key interface version. Let me know if you completed your setup and if its working..
