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).

    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.

    Wanted to use this on my sony vaio VPCEE3J0E but it does not have a pcie. Sad times. It is badly designed and the heat-pipe separated from the GPU and it burnt out a while ago.

    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.

    Hi, I am the current user of an old laptop called "Dell Latitude 3330" that has "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3337U CPU @ 1.80GHz" and "Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000" with 4gb of Ram. I wonder if my laptop can run "Overwatch" If I do the same thing u did in the video. If it is possible, would you explain briefly about the materials and steps that I must be prepared with? Thank you, and I hope to hear good news from you.

    I am into making a PC with a Laptop's motherboard. Since it is an "old" i7 3537U Processor it is not supposed to be too noisy. I planned to connect an NVIDIA 1050. I wanted to power de motherboard and the "external" nvidia with an ATX power supply. The thing is that the mother board works at 9v or so was its dead power supply. How should I connect the ATX power supply to the laptop's MB? I haven't seen anything like this in internet. I do not want to use two power supplies for one computer.

    I am having a problem with my Toshiba C50-A076 laptop, it is provided with 2 GPUs, one is Intel 400 and the other is Nvidia, previously and all of a sudden the Nvidia stopped working and now the laptop keeps restarting, the Maintainance guys agreed on that the GPU is the problem since it heats very quickly causing the hardware to restart after it kept hanging for a while.
    Can I use this trick fot now?

  • Uranium

    Another bottleneck other than the laptops CPU is the pci express port on the laptop which is not x16 while the graphics card needs x16 pcie slot to work properly. Really interesting project though!
