The most common is an EXP GDC V7.0 Beast that you connect to the MiniPCIexpress slot that is used by your wifi card.

External graphics crads usulally use Thunderbolt 3 to connect with another device but many users use expresscard or mPCIe slots, first of all look what connetor uses the grapichs card that you want to buy so you will be not surprised that you can't connect it to your laptop!

Sure you can use the miniPCIe, but sadly you will have a massive bootleneck there


It depends on if the MiniPCIe is x1, x2, or 4x. The bottlenecks usually seem to be in the range of 80% of typical benchmarks, although that could potentially be explained by weaker laptop CPUs.  looking it up, though you'll likely not want to do that either. the p170sm doesn't have a thunderbolt port, and is essentially msata for the flash drives. what this means if you really want to do this, you'll have to lift your keyboard and run the cable underneath. to be entirely honest you'd be better looking into a 1070 or 1060 for the MXM slot.
