Hello Community Experts I have an Lenovo Yoga 12", which I'm not sure if it has the thunderbolt 3 connection(which on my understanding of eGPUS is the only viable connector). And I want to run a eGPU on this laptop, can I do the connection with an eGPU using this laptop? Is this possible? If not, can I upgrade my graphics performance somehow? Looking foward for any help!

I have recently purchased a 6th gen x1 carbon. It is the model with a 512gb ssd and 16gb of ram. I am planning a setup for my dorm room that definitely could use some work. There are a lot of peripherals going into this so bear with me. My main question through explaining this is if there is a way to streamline the setup and make it more cost efficient.  I am planning to major buys with this setup, the thinkpad ultradock and an Egpu. Regarding the Egpu, it will be a GTX 1070 mounted in a Razor Core V1. My question is I feel like having both the dock and core is unnecessary. I ideally would like to come into my room and put my X1 straight into the dock, which will be closed and probably upright next to the Egpu. Where I see the problem is that I could just as easily do the setup without the dock and instead plug the Egpu into the TB3 port every time I get home, and simply have the peripherals connected to the Egpu housing. One of the pieces that is making me question the setup is I also intend to have an external SSD that will stay in my room with the Egpu and will store my video games to save space on the internal drive for classes and regular programs. I have been told that the SSD and Egpu cannot share the same port as there would not be enough bandwidth to support the two for how I intend to use it, mostly gaming. So here are a couple questions I would like answered. 1. Should I even bother with the Ultra Dock if I am getting the EGPU2. What would be th... Read more

Hello, I'm fairly new to the forums as well as building computers. I currently use a Lenovo Ideapad V570 and would like to play games that require a better graphics card other than the Intel (R) HD Graphics 3000. The game I would like to try and play is a new game called Overwatch, that can be run by these cards. Reading other posts/forums/articles, I know that I need a graphics card, bplus board, and psu. But I don't know what to buy with a $400~500 budget and whether it'll work with my laptop. I would like to have some suggestions about which affordable components to get for the GPU. For the graphics card, I am honestly okay with anything as long as I can play Overwatch on it (it just looks so good to play haha...) Thank you!

I have recently purchased a YOGA 920 and a HP Omen egpu enclosure. I am having problem connecting it to my laptop.
 
First, I tried both port, there's the sound of connect and disconnect, and nothing shows on the laptop, and the laptop is not charging.
 
I have tried with power cable connected, and now it was connected. The egpu still was not charging (no power delivery), and it only works one port 2 (port closer to touch pad) with charger connected to port 1. If I switch them, the laptop goes blue scree. I can remove the power after it is connected but then there is no power supply.
 
It is kind of similar to the issue as MrKnowNothing https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/YOGA-920-Thunderbolt-3-Port-No-devices-fou....
 
I have tried different drivers but all of them do not work. I have updated BIOS and Type-C firmware from Lenovo to the most recent version.
 
One more thing. Is it normal that thunderbolt controller is not showing up in device manager when nothing is connected?
 
I have tried it with my friend?s xps, it works perfectly, basically plug and play.
 
I think it is not supposed to work like this and the egpu should have power delivery to my laptop. Even if there is no power delivery, it should still connect without power adapter connected. Is this hardware problem or driver problem? Is there anyone else have similar problems?
 
Thanks!

When battery is fully charged egpu starts to disconnect/connect all the time.

A:V15 Nitro TB3 eGPU possible?

Black Edition Nitro systems will offer full thunderbolt 3 support, which should support this. Models that are not black edition will use either  USB 3.1 Type C Gen 2 (10 Gbps) while others only support Gen1 (5 Gbps) which would not provide this ability.

THE SUMMARY~

whats up guys!

so i have a dell studio 1458 Laptop with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 540v graphics card and im getting tired of not being able to play games on quality settings and good FPS, so im going to start an eGPU build for my computer.

after i return some other failed attempts to upgrade my GPU, ill have $160 to work with. so with this in mind i will be getting a PE4L adapter kit, and an ATI 6670 Desktop GPU. together this totals for me $161 shipped.

you can use other GPU's with a higher wattage PSU with that kit because it comes with the adapter for a PSU, but the 6670 is good because it wont bottleneck my CPU, and has good specs and low power consumption (15-20v 3A 65W if using something other then a computer PSU).

for the power supply, i will be using a IBM laptop charger PSU.

i will also need an external monitor, so for now, my 1080p TV will work for this until i get a monitor. (17"-20" 720 or 1080 or 900)

now my laptop has an express slot, so the PE4L adapter and kit will plug rite into that, then the power supply into the adapter, graphics card into adapter. then all you have to do is plug in monitor, turn on the eGPU, boot up windows, and then finally plug in adapter into computer. windows install hardware automatically, then you will have to install Graphics driver from the suppliers website, then reboot. if need be, you may have to disable internal graphics in device manager.

Hi I'm toying with getting an X280 to replace my 5 year old MacBook Pro. A small form factor is important to me these days as I make music when I'm out and about, but when I am using it at home I'd also like to be able to use it with an external GPU (the Razer Core X for example) to do some low end graphics work, and occasionally play some games of course. Does anyone know if the X280 has the ability to run external graphics via the Thunderbolt 3 port? It's not necessarily a deal breaker for me, the kind of graphics work I want to do is very low-res, low-poly stuff, and maybe the internal graphics will handle this just fine. It would just be good to know going forward - I called tech support and they gave me a vague yes, based on the X280 having Thunderbolt 3. Any information/experiences with this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

is it possible to use egpu external graphics with hp15-272wm

A:hp 15-272wm and egpu

eGPUs are interesting. I have very mixed opinions on them. But to start with you need a port to hook it to. Your laptop has none of the common ports used for eGPU. USB 3.0 is too slow. USB-C (also called Thunderbolt) is perfect but you do not have that. You also do not have an expresscard slot...have not seen those for 5 or 6 years. The only option is the mini-pcie port where the wireless card plugs in. We have seen reports that people have had success plugging in eGPU cables into that port and running them to an eGPU dock power supply and external monitor.  It requires that you run the laptop with the memory and WLAN cover off (see p. 31 of manual below) and you obviously can't have wireless going at the same time.  Manual Also bear in mind your laptop has a very low end "Bay Trail" processor which is not an ideal gaming platform even if you can get an eGPU working.  You need one of these: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8RU3967582 You plug this dock ($128) into the wireless card slot, then you need a video card for the dock (say $200) and a desktop power supply (say $50) and a decent external monitor (say $125)...so like $500 for this setup.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as SOlution" to help others find it.

Hi alls,I'm aware of this thread and several reviewers on the net about eGPU, plus some highly praises for this AORUS Gaming Box.Initially, I was not interested in the subject of eGPU, as I'm not a gamer. So, eGPU would be a waste of money, at excessive high cost, and not necessary for this high-end Yoga 920.But . . . when I tried processing some videos, the GPU usage in Task Manager stayed upward in the 98% high. Too bad, that I do this task often.Hence, I wish to start this thread, with some initial (perhaps naive) questions as follows:. Does it harm the laptop to be in high GPU usage in long term ?. If a hardware change is needed, is there a solution with more reasonable cost ? and small size for portability ?Looking forward to see many great debates. Thanks.
