Gaming on a Laptop using an External GPU

  • Опубликовано: 23 окт 2014
  • In this experimental video I try connecting a desktop graphics card to a laptop... the results were certainly interesting.
    I've been wanting to try this out for a while, so a big thanks to BangGood for sending me the adapter (ebay link above, banggood link below).

    Humm, I watched your other video turning old laptops into a media PC and I'm thinking about doing it. I wonder if I make or get a big enough case if I could use this to upgrade the gpu? Making it a light gaming rig and media server.

    And if the graphic card is not the same can you still use both

    Is there some way I can do this without taking apart my computer, in other words, line them up to a thunderbolt 2 or hdmi input on my computer. I want to do this so I don't need to spend 200 dollars on a graphics card box.

    I got a question. Are all the video outputs on the GPU work when the GPU is mounted on the device? Can you use multi monitors? (not for gaming, I want to connect 2 extra screen other than my laptop). Thank you in advance.

    Sadly, the availability of this adapter isn't provided on Amazon and other platforms anymore + most notebooks don't have ExpressCard so the mPCIe-version would be needed... but many modern laptops have soldered WiFi and stuff so you couldn't even use such an adapter when opening the device up :/

    So I've did this to my old alienware 14 laptop hooking it up with a gtx 770, it runs relatively well besides when it comes to recording. No matter the game, even an old hl2 mod, the frames drop massively. Does anyone know this problem? How do I resolve it? (Massively as in 60 to 14 fps and yes i have tried adjusting my recording settings from highest to lowest)

    Since laptops with USB C + Thunderbolt ports r becoming increasingly common, I was wondering if this will work with a HDMI to USB C cable instead of using the included HDMI to PCI-E cable. It would be nice if someone could confirm. If it works, then I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on one of those overpriced eGPU docks.
