E560 + GDC beast + r9 290

Recommended Posts

So I went out and bought a ThinkPad E560 motherboard and all other necessary parts (ram, ssd, fan, cables, etc). The parts alone works great! It's an i7 (skylake) model with amd r7 m370.

 

Now I already had an r9 290 and a GDC beast v.8 with a m.2 adapter and monitor. It was more or less plug n' play on my previous laptop. But now I'm having a really hard time making it work.

 

I could really use some expert help here!

                     Win 10
       
      # Use the mpcie slot for egpu
       
      GPU powers on and Epu setup 1.x recognized the graphics card. 
      Disabled the dgpu using setup 1.x. 
      Installed latest crimson drivers
      In device manager gpu shows with error 43. Disabled the egpu from device manager and re-enabled it again. Then it showed normally. 
       
      BUT THE PROBLEM IS I CANT CONNECT IT INTO A EXTERNAL DISPLAY. i USED THE DVI-SINGLE LINK PORT AND THE HDMI PORT BUT MY MONITOR DOESNT PICK UP THE SIGNAL.
       
      Help required !!!!
       
      01. First look at the Device manager.

      Hi all and merry Christmas / happy holidays
       
      I bought myself an unknown laptop. It is called Vision Computer, but has no other name. CPU-Z says the mobo is PBL21, and apparently some Clevo laptops and IBuyPower laptops has this mobo.

      Anywho, it works, it's fast and was cheap. It has a 4 core 8 thread intel I7 2720QM, 16 gb RAM, Nvidia gt 540m, ssd and a screen. Note that it doesn't have an iGPU only dGPU.
       
      First I tried to just plug and play. Didn't succeed.
       
      Secondly I did a successful DSDT override, got the large memory, but nope. 
       
      Then I tried some stuff with the DIY setup 1.30 although most of the time, it couldn't connect to the eGPU.
       
      I have successfully installed the drivers, when the eGPU was detected correctly. But it doesn't want to play ball.
       
      Some advice would be nice.

      Intel just unveiled Thunderbolt 3.0 with USB-C connector.

      This is what they say about external graphics..
       
       

      Looks good for the future of Thunderbolt eGPU!

      Full press release here: https://thunderbolttechnology.net/blog/thunderbolt-3-usb-c-does-it-all
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

      Here's an Intel video of prototype TB3 notebooks running egpus. Intel are definitely onboard with egpu support.

      These days a lot of the rage is in thin and light notebooks and while that is fine for a lot of people, there is a substantial number of performance enthusiasts (especially found on this website) that want the exact opposite. This group of enthusiast demands the pinnacle of performance built right into the notebook and not a thin and light compromise saddled with an Intel BGA processor and soldered GPU.
       
      Well Clevo and Eurocom are listening and Eurocom let us know that they have launched the new Sky DLX7 notebook that is aimed squarely at those aforementioned enthusiasts. But you don't have to be a gamer to want this DTR (desktop replacement) because it will offer the same amount of productivity as any formidable desktop, especially with it's 17.3" display with 4k resolution and 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. It can also support up to 4 active displays thanks to its two mini Display Ports, USB 3.1 and HDMI 2. 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

       
      The Sky DLX7 uses Intel's latest Z170 chipset with socket LGA 1151 which allows it to support the latest 14nm Skylake desktop processors up to the Core i7-6700K that operates at 4 GHz and has a turbo boost of 4.2 GHz. In addition, the CPU can be further overclocked for true high end desktop level performance. For those that like to keep upgrading their notebooks, the Sky DLX7 supports MXM 3.0b graphics cards such as the NVIDIA GTX 980 desktop (full desktop level card in an MXM package) and professional Quadro mobile cards. 
       

       
      Unlike many competing notebooks, this DTR won't have trouble keeping itself cool as it features high capacity copper heatsinks and fans to keep things chilled. 
       

       
      There doesn't appear to be a shortage of space either as it can support two 9.5 mm HDD or SSD bays and two M.2 SSD PCIe x 4 SATA drives with RAID 0/1/5/10 availability.  There's no word on final pricing but given all the power this thing packs, it probably can get pricey very quickly.
