Hi! I'm new here.
I have a MBP 15-inch (Mid 2014, Iris Pro 5200) with macOS 10.12.1 installed. Can I run eGPU with an AMD Graphics Card (R9 300, R9 Nano or RX 400) using the internal display on macOS? (I don't prefer running it on Windows.)
I've known the automate-eGPU.sh, but I'm not sure if it can support the internal display.
Thanks for answering!
Hi there, I'm new to the forum but I've been reading some post from it since long ago.
I just wanted to know certain things that I wasn't able to find trough the forum searcher. I'm thinking about putting an eGPU to my Lenovo B50-50. I don't do heavy gaming, I mean, the heaviest game I like to run is warface (Idk if u guys know it) and I will be more than happy if I could get it to run at 60stable fps at medium. I was thinking about getting the following:
-This GTX750: https://www.pccomponentes.com/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-750-ti-oc-windforce-2gb-gddr5-reacondicionado-
-The exp GDC 7.0 : http://www.banggood.com/es/EXP-GDC-Laptop-External-PCI-E-Graphics-Card-p-934367.html
- And, a power supply : https://www.pccomponentes.com/corsair-cx430-v2-430w-builder-series
How do you see it?
My pc specs are the following:
- Intel Core i3-5005U Processor( 2.00GHz 1600MHz 3MB)
- HD Intel 5500
- 4.0GB PC3L-12800 DDR3L 1600 MHz
How much improvement it is going to cause? I play games like LoL (It already runs at smooth 60 fps with my setup), Drakensang, star conflict. warface, left 4 dead 2 etc...
I know I can't increase my ram, there is a solution similar to the egpu but for increasing the ram memory?
I've been looking for cases for the external setup but they are incomprehensibly expensive, no budget cases? If not I can made up something..
Thanks in advance.
To finish, I know laptops are not for gaming, is what I got from my parents and I have to make the best of it for my needs. I appreciate any help.

It is important the community is made aware of this information. Nando tried sending a DMCA takedown to Notebook Review and recently Tech|Inferno Media but ultimately failed.

Your recollection of history with regards to the BIOS mods is a bit off. I came to mydigitallife and posed a request for someone to mod the HDX BIOS to remove the whitelist. TTAV134 took up the challenge and achieved it. A fact that can easily be verified. His work was the basis for further HP BIOS mods. Then you came along and did the Dual IDA mod to his work. His work. Another fact that is documented.
Later I approached TTAV134 to make a BIOS mod for my DV5 to remove the whitelist, add DUAL IDA, and unlock advanced menu items. Once again, he succeeded. In all cases, I always gave him proper credit. He doesn't obtusely pretend that he owns either of these mods or the many others he's done for people as a generous favor. In fact, no one on mydigitallife who mods BIOS files makes any sort of claim to them because they know they have ZERO rights to them under any law or circumstance. The modified BIOS files are public domain. That you thought that you were doing me and the HDX community a favor by "allowing" me to continue to host the HDX BIOS files unmolested is obscene. I couldn't believe that you would say something like that to me of all people. The guy that went to bat for you when NO ONE at NBR would.
Also, punishing by proxy is ridiculous and you know that in your heart of hearts. I have to believe that. Otherwise, you're no better than terrorists who believe in such a doctrine. Moreover, those BIOS files are all over the web. Google them and see. That you sent a DMCA take down notice to an innocent poster for something you simply don't own is atrocious and unconscionable. That poster lost his DropBox account that he built up with referrals. You lost the moral high ground doing that. You committed an act of fraud with malicious intent. As a staunch supporter of yours, there's no way I can defend that action of yours. It can't even be twisted into some sort of Holy crusade to find justification. What were you thinking? Bro seriously. What happened to you? Look I get you're justifiably angry at NBR. But are you seeing so much red a full year later that you can't distinguish from right and wrong? The innocent from the "guilty?"
You don't own the BIOS files. They are not your intellectual property. They belong to HP. Modifying them does not make them your property. How you cannot understand that is strange. Don't take my word for it. Ask an attorney. They will invariably tell you the same (unless you retain a shoddy one who will tell you what you want to hear just to take your money). To illustrate; what do you think would happen if you stole Facebook's website code, changed a few lines of code, graphics, and sequence of page presentation and started a website with that code and pretended it was your IP simply because you modified it? Give it an honest thought. The answer should come instantly to mind.
And Chris Leonard is NOT your enemy. He was quite sympathetic to your cause. Quite. He is a very good guy. An excellent dude. Think about his position. Think about the dynamics. Now put yourself in his shoes.
On this one issue with regards to the BIOS files, you are dead wrong my friend. It's all I ask you to drop. Think about that. Think about what I'm saying. Just one issue I'm telling you, you are dead wrong about. That's it.
Friends are going to challenge you. Friends are going to support you. Friends may even disagree with you. But they are still you friends.
Set aside your personal perception of your own good and take a moment to think about the greater good. Those files are not your property and belong in the public domain. You look really bad claiming something as yours that in no uncertain terms isn't. If you want credit for your modification work on the files, yes, that's fair and that's fine. But let's not pretend you did something so monumental as to make it an original copyrightable work. Be honest with yourself bro. Be rational. Be better.
Bear with me for a second...
You might be thinking... that NBR drama is being brought here. And that isn't entirely incorrect. It's an unavoidable consequence because our friend Nando is charging for the files which technically and legally belong to Hewlett Packard (HP) and details why he does so in the opening post even going so far as telling people to send TechTarget/NBR a $15 bill to compensate them for his compulsory "donation." He also, in his second post, highlights an inflammatory comment made against him by a poster on NBR with respect to distributing these files after losing his Dropbox account. A response to Nando's explicit references and actions with regard to these files is topical.
However, persons host the files outside of NBR and when Nando notices where (by monitoring for links to them posted on NBR as if that's the only place), he issuesfraudulent DMCA take down notices to the file host service. The file service hosts aren't going to waste time validating Nando's false claims as doing so isn't cost effective. That's something Nando relies on. However, a challenge to the claims will implicate Nando in criminal activity. So it's very unwise of Nando to be doing this. He's claiming ownership to files which violate HP's IP and potentially Microsoft's and also potentially facilitate criminal activity.
Think of it like this; Imagine someone modifying Mumak's excellent program and subsequently claims that it is his program (the modifier's) and not Mumaks' intellectual property and then charges for it because of the modifications. Or if someone modifies the groundbreaking program ThrottleStop and subsequently claims that the modified version is his program (the modifier's) and not the IP of UncleWebb and then charges for it because of the modifications as if the modifications make it somehow an original work. I doubt the staff here would stand for it. As a personal user of both these excellent programs, I wouldn't stand for someone doing that to these awesome guys who actually own the original work. If I saw it on the web being modified and/or sold, I would let Mumak and Unclewebb know and would support them in their efforts to stop the practice of someone violating their IP rights and depriving them of the compensation due them.
So you see, most importantly, Nando issues DMCA takedown notices on the false grounds of copyright infringement (he's not the owner, HP is) but also on the correct(though hypocritical) grounds that the files contain SLIC 2.1 injected tables which enables activated installations of Windows 7 on computers without a Windows 7 license. The same files he distributes also have SLIC 2.1 injections and are also a violation of Hewlett Packard's intellectual property rights. (I can show the text of Nando's DMCA take down notice claim).
Not that you, or Nando, or certainly myself particularly care about the issue of the SLIC injections. The files are a useful public domain resource for many people as it gives them the freedom of choice without harming the actual copyright owner (That being HP). That is until one decides to sell them (a compulsory donation is indeed a sale). Or of course if one uses them to circumvent Microsoft's IP rights or uses them to install a wifi card that violates international or local communications laws. But that's on the individual.
I ask that you let this discussion run its course just for the very short term. Literally for no more than a few more posts. Why?
Nando's compulsory donation and fraudulent issuance of DMCA takedown notices is technically a criminal action prosecutable by law. It's like a bootlegger charging for a DVD/Bluray simply because he modified portions of the original source with overlays, customized menus, and different chapter breakpoints to which he does not own the IP rights to in the first place. Allowing Nando to demand a donation in exchange for distribution of files he does not have IP rights to makes whomever owns this domain complicit in this flagrant violation of Hewlett Packard's intellectual property rights. And if HP decides to go after these files because of Nando's illegal actions, we all would lose a valuable resource (Nando and the files) and in the broader context would also stand to jeopardize MyDigitalLife's site which specializes is BIOS modifications.
Keeping free and unfettered distribution of modified BIOS files is in the best interest of all involved - both those who modify them and those who would use them.
And if Nando stops or is prevented from illegally demanding compensation for files which he does not legally own and allows unfettered access, feel free to delete all posts with regard to this issue. They would the be moot and look out of place after all. What Nando doesn't realize is that if rightful and unfettered access is granted, I would point people to any download links posted here so other people wouldn't have to host them or share them via email in an effort to avoid his fraudulent and harassing DMCA claims. And you know what? People would discover this excellent forum on account of links pointing to here and would likely join it and perhaps become contributing and productive members. If they have questions about the files, who better to ask than Nando? Right? It's all about being reasonable.

My problem is that after buying the "exp gdc v8" by bangood and trying to install an eGPU on my Dell Inspiron N5110 with an MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X 6GB GDDR5
I do not get the expected result.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the BIOS of this computer is junk and does not allow switching between dGPU and eGPU
I will explain in several cases, in which the graphic card is correctly connected:
1- After turning on the power supply and connecting the HDMI-miniPCI-E cable, and the HDMI cable of the graphic to an external monitor and turning on the notebook, the screen remains black with the computer fan running.
After a few seconds the graphics fans turn off and the computer continues with the black screen.
2- After turning on the power supply and connecting the HDMI-miniPCI-E cable, and the HDMI cable of the graphics card to an external monitor and turning on the notebook, the computer turns on normally and even, in the device manager, appears in The screen adapters section, the graphic card with a yellow triangle error.
Now, what I did was take an old graphics card and do step number 1. To my surprise, everything was on wheels, installed its driver and worked wonderfully.
Could the NVIDIA GTX 1060 not be compatible for some reason?
Thanks in advance
