    ok, someone i need help. i have a nvga geforce gtx 970, that has TWO additional 6-pin PCI-E power slots. how/where can i get a cord to run power to these slots! this is preventing me from gaming on my ASUS laptop with an i7 core. i was extremely looking forward to this and now i am completely bummed out because my gpu doesnt have enough power to turn on. im using a 350w power supply from my old dell desktop.

    Are you getting full gpu performance over thunderbolt 3 egpu?

    I don't understand why people dislike this. It is not that you would buy a laptop to do this. It's more so to revive an old laptop that has an okay processor. Only $40 if you have the gpu and stuch

    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 in the meantime, like with my gaming laptop, M2 slots are becoming more and more popular, even mine does not have a mini pci-e port. Im just wondering: Is there perhaps a variant of this GPU dock that outputs to M2 instead of PCI-e?

    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.

  • Najd Al-Oqaili
    Najd Al-Oqaili 5 months ago +1

    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.
