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 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!

Hi Guys, I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop. This is the second time I have had issues with the WiFi dropping out frequently.  The first time was when I first downloaded windows 10 - I downloaded a new driver from the Lenovo website and everything worked perfectly.  The last couple of months it has been playing up again. My phone and any other devices will be connected to the internet however my laptop will repeatedly disconnect from the internet, this happens a ridiculous amount of times everyday - and it's not just my home wifi! Im currently at my university library and it does the same thing. It just drops out randomly and says "not connected - no connects are available" I have to keep restarting my laptop for it to reconnect to the internet (I know that's probably not the best thing to do but it's the only thing that sometimes works). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver software, I've scanned for hardware changes and nothing comes up?? Has anyone got any ideas on anything else I could try?  Thank you all!

Hi Everyone, Recently purchased Yoga 370 with USB-C to Displayport adapter (FRU 03X7204) to connect to my DELL U2412M. When I plugged in the adapter to the Yoga, it detects as "USB Billboard Device". Google tells me that it means something went wrong when during the handshake between dongle and notebook for initializing DP alternate display mode. I have nothing else to go on because there is no error message displayed... I have switched TB 3 mode to Displayport and USB in BIOS and that did not work. Anyone has any ideas? Much appreciated in advance.

So here is a new one:  I have a Yoga 910 that has had many networking issues. It appears that if I unplug the computer from my USB-C dock (the dock still has power), the dock network connection freezes my router. This is repeatable, and annoying. As soon as I powered down the dock (by unplugging it), the router starts working. I am using an ASUS RT-AC5300 "mother of all routers" (when I bought it), and it has been rock solid until I started with my new Yoga. It is running the latest firmware, and I have updated the firmware on the dock as well. Ideas?

Hello, recently the wireless symbol in the taskbar disappeared from time to time and connection via WiFi was not possible but connection via LAN cable was possible.I checked the network and internet settings and a WiFi-adapter was not listed anymore.I checked the device manager of my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro but the "Intel (R) Wireless-N 7260" device disappeared.Only when I choosed "Show faded out devices" I saw the "Intel (R) Wireless-N 7260" device.When I choose Properties from "Intel (R) Wireless-N 7260" this message appears:  "This device is not connected to the computer (Code 45)".Some times when this problem occured I could bring the device to work by a hard reset. It also happened a few times that the laptop did not boot and a hard reset solved the problem of not booting and the not connected wireless module.Now the device is gone again but a hard reset does not solve the problem anymore. What's remarkable is that often before the problem occured I could surf the web intensively via WiFi then I closed the laptop cover (Hibernation mode is set) but when I waked it up again WiFi was gone. The newest Intel driver for the device has been installed after an OS upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

When I'm playing audio from just my laptop (nothing connected), I would hear everything, such as Spotify and Hearthstone from the same output (internal speakers or external speakers).
However, this changes when I connect my Aorus 1080 Gaming Box to my laptop.
Now, the sound is divided into different outputs and I can only select one...
For example: Spotify would be running on Realtek High Def Audio and my in-game sound can't be heard. I switch my audio to NVidia High Def Audio and I can hear my game, but not my spotify music.
How can I change this option so that I can hear everything through one audio output selection?

I have the 6th X1 Carbon. When connected to an eGPU, I think my CPU temps are too high. (85-91 C when playing games for short durations.)
I am thinking about buying a laptop cooler, but I'm not sure what would be better.
My two choices are:
1. the traditional cooling pad. These will have fans running on the bottom of the laptops
OR
2. laptop fan coolers such as Laptop Fan Cooler. These connect to the laptop's side vents, which the Thinkpad models, like my X1 Carbon has. 
I wonder if anyone has tried either types of cooling and which one would probably have a better result in cooling down my laptop.
Thanks!

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.

Brand new X1 Yoga 3rd Gen with i7 8650 and Win 10 Pro - "Known good" Aorus 1070 eGPU box (and factory TB3 cable that might be 18" long. I have been using the Aorus1070 with my Dell XPS 15 but the 2 lanes of PCIe on my XPS warranted an upgrade. I really like the X1 Yoga and want to jump ship from Dell to Lenovo but not if the eGPU issues cant be fixed.(I haven't owned/used an IBM laptop since back in 2000 when it was still IBM) Issue 1 - eGPU won't power on.Issue 2 - Computer freezes (with or without BSOD)Issue 3 - False charging (not the common issue)Issue 4 - Mouse freeze  Issue 1 - The Aorus box has no power switch and should automatically turn on when the computer turns on. The Aorus box will only power on around 1 out of 5 restarts/power-ons. When the laptop is up and running I can try unplugging and plugging in the TB3 cable and maybe 1 in 10 attemps prompts the Aorus box to power on. Most of the attempts to plug in the Aorus box while the laptop is powered on results in an instant BSOD. Issue 2 - Whenever the 1 in 20 attemps to power on the Aorus box is successful and I can use the eGPU I can sometimes get anywhere from 2-4 hours of gameplay out of it before freezes - Sometimes there will be a BSOD but other times the image is just frozen and the last 0.5 second of audio re-re-re-re-re-re-re-peats until I hard kill the laptop. Issue 3- The charging issue is not the one that google loves to show me when I search for it.

So I know the eGPU doesn't produce sufficient power to power the laptop(it does 30w, when the laptop wants 45 or 60w), but I don't understand why that'd potentially cause crashing. To clarify crashing still happens when I plug it into the thunderbolt 3 non-power port as well., I have gotten it to work SOME TIMES(enough to install Nvidia drivers, and the eGPU enclosure drivers), but most of the time it just crashes my system. And it happens almost immediately after plugging the egpu in. For further clarification, my Dell XPS 13(with far inferior specs... 4gb ram, 8250u), has no issues with the eGPU enclosure and works perfectly with it. I'd just obviously rather use the eGPU with the more powerful cpu and more ram... 4gb is rather restrictive, but that laptop serves the purpose as a travel theater anyways(good screen for movies, not so bad headphone dac, and with the 8250u an amazing battery life). Specs:X1 Yoga 3rd gen with 8650U & 16gb of ram, 1440p hdr displayOMEN Accelerator with ASUS GTX 1080 Strix

Hi everyone I want to order a thinkpad x1 laptop that I can sometime use with an eGPU for gaming. I kinda favor the X1 yoga but heard that X1 Yoga is more prone to thermal throttling and heating than X1 carbon. Anyway, if anyone  already tried gaming on X1 yoga (6th gen) with an egpu, would you mind sharing your experience with me (especially in term of thermal throttling and heating). Thanks

To be honest, T480s would be even better, as according to tests, it's able to utilize CPU fully, thanks to good cooling system (make sure to get iGPU-only version though). And thanks to undervolting, you'll be able to elimimate throttling under prolonged load. You'll find more information in article below (both X1's were also tested): https://www.notebookcheck.net/A-performance-comparison-of-all-new-ThinkPad-notebooks.286486.0.html

I'm in the market for a new laptop- and I'm in love with the Yoga 920. As a digital artist and architecture student everything looks like what I would want in a computer. I showed the specs to my advisor and he says it's a "no-go" because it has an integrated graphics card. That the computer would be unstable in the long run without a dedicated one. I don't really game on my computer- but I'd need something that could render 3D elements and potentially allow me to do VR walkthroughs. For me the wacoom tech screen for drawing is what's really selling it to me and I can't seem to find the best of both worlds. I thought about just buying a gaming laptop and then getting a cintiq to satisfy that aspect for me but I'd be dropping $2000-$3500 on the low end- which is quite a bit more than the prices I was looking at for just the Yoga Does anyone know if I can get a Yoga 920 with a dedicated driver or if it's compatible with an eGPU? I'm worried that an eGPU might affect the stability by plugging it in and out.

I've had my x1 yoga 3rd gen for about a year now, and love it. I've been using a thunderbolt 3 eGPU dock (aorus 1070 gaming box) as a dock for about the same amount of time now, since it gives me the convenience power and portability. Other than the occasional visual glitches and restarts, I haven't had any issues when I unplug my laptop from the eGPU dock, or plugging it in. However, yesterday after I unplugged my laptop from the eGPU dock, my laptop kept making a "connected USB" and "disconnected USB" sound. It looked like my Thunderbolt 3 software app kept crashing and rebooting. I also noticed that none of my usb c/thunderbolt 3 ports were working; the laptop says it's charging with nothing plugged in, and when I tried plugging in a charger, it wouldn't charge. The only solution I found was to disable Thunderbolt 3 in the BIOS, but I'm not sure if this is a software issue, or if there's a part of my motherboard that's fried. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for troubleshooting?

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
