Is eGPU possible for lenovo ideapad y510p?

Recommended Posts

The kickstarter probably failed because most people didn't know about it in time. I'm still absolutely interested in one of these though. I'd rather use an ultrabay adapter than the mpcie ones. At least then it's easily removed for transport.

Hi Psyrecx,

one adapter is still available. 

If there are really more people interested in such an adapter I can order new adapters -> minimum quantity is about 10 pcs.

I'm interested. I have egpu setup with gtx 970 but when I'm using the internal screen my frames are limited to 48fps, my question can I use it with internal screen too? maybe you can try with gtx 970 just to be sure.

Curious, but would this eGPU adapter fit in a y410p? Not would it work, but would the current implementation physically fit, given the different dimensions?

Just registered to say I'm would love to purchase one of your adaptors. I would like to use my Y510P as a "mobile" VR solution when travelling.

Would you be willing to setup a new ebay link and do you ship worldwide (or at least to europe) ?

I would be interested as well. Would this adapter work so I can use a GTX 1080 with my y510p through the ultrabay slot?

Gerald, I'd also be interested in trying the adapter if I can find an anti-whitelisted bios for the y500. I'm in the US.

I might be a little late to the party, but I am also interested in purchasing an adapter, if it works on a y500 with gt650m.

Me please! Also is there anyway it would make sense to go through a place like oshpark to manufacture the pcbs? I know a lot of people would love to have the adapter go to a smaller connector for something in an enclosure, I have pretty good experience with eagle if you wanted to do something like this.

I have only one adapter still available.

If more people need such an adapter I can start a new order batch. The minimum order number ist about 20 pcs. If a lot of people are interested in such an adapter they can answer to this discussion. If the number is reached I start a new eBay offer. The shipping time is about 6-8 weeks because the PCB has to be ordered.

      I am very aware of the healthy skepticism of most if not all of you. I therefore kindly ask of you not to spew out the fact that its impossible to build a laptop at me but instead attempt to help me to make this somewhat possible for the next person interested in the idea.
       
      I already have:
      somewhere to buy a screen: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/ somewhere to buy a motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, storage and other things although I would be very interested should you recommend other places where I can get these  
      I will build the cooling system myself
       
      I need:
      somewhere to buy a laptop shell (I am aware of how difficult it is to find one and am therefore very flexible on all other components) somewhere to buy a power supply  
      Thank you very much for helping me and pushing the possibility of building a custom laptop ever so slightly more realistic

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.

      I'm having a problem where my PC is saying my eGPU is not usable, its detected in the Device Manager and it doesn't have the yellow triangle next to it. I cant use it games and the Nvidia Control Panel doesn't recognize it either. I'm using a EVGA NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1660. I'm using windows 10 and I tried DDU and reinstalling them and now I cant access the nvidia control panel. The GPU is not recognize on any other apps and I went on *********** and was unable to find my answer, Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?
