Gaming on a Laptop using an External GPU

  • Опубликовано:  2 года назад
  • 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).

    My labtop has an i5 and it is 2015. It might have a decent i5. Might work well with my 1080 or rx480

    hello there. Just a question. will this kind of upgrading graphics can be also useful for those who make some multimedia editing (especially high in consuming cpu and ram) like adobe premiere, photoshop, and after effects?

    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.

    So mini PCI slot a lot better and faster than USB 3, and all notebooks have mini PCI slot
    as i understood, am i right? Answer my questions please if you know.
    Also does mini PCI bottleneck the performance of eGPU, by the way i
    needed for autocad and something like that and sometimes for gaming for several old notebooks already i have. And do i need the separate monitor or i can use my own notebook? And what about the integrated video card or it will work like optimus or i should choose every time the video card before i start gaming, or just i should disable the integrated video card? Also some adapters connected to hdmi while others to usb, Ares there any differences between them?

    If I have a gaming laptop with a bad graphics card, but a good cpu and I got a good graphics card like a gtx 1080 would it bottleneck the computer trying to run an HTC vive? It would save me so much money if that's the case.

    while his gaming laptop has a compressed 980 on it while i did was the spare connection for the adaptor was used and all of those were put at my drawer below to my laptop while my external grapichs card was outside with good airflow and pretty much saved over 500 dollars for a gaming pc

    Just throwing this hypothetical question here: Will this work on an intel atom netbook? I have an LG X120 with an intel atom and 1gb ram, It has a wifi card inside so the slot required must exist. I also have an old low power amd gpu so it would be fun if I could make this netbook capable of basic games with 20$. Right now it can barely run the half life at 30 fps. Passmark score for its intergraded intel gpu is 5. in contrast my gtx960 scores 6000.

    I wonder if that motherboard and cooling system can handle some serious hours even using a laptop gaming fan. I am curious because I have a older Dell M4500 with i7 840Q @1.8ghz with a older quadro GPU which isn't supported by Nvidia anymore. This would be a option until I could afford to build a Gaming PC or before my laptop Melts down lol.
