An interesting fun fact: The name “ Microsoft” originated because spelled backwards it reads “we don’t support eGPUs”. 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Hello guys, I recently bought a surface laptop 3 which I am really enjoying however it has a terrible built-in gpu and also no thunderbolt only one usb- c... Does anyone know if using a usb-c with a egpu is possible?or worthwhile? or what egpu to get if so?

 

Thanks for any help!

@seanlane, none of the Surface devices have thunderbolt 3. You will not be able to use an eGPU with it.
