Is eGPU possible for lenovo ideapad y510p?

Recommended Posts

I got the EXP GDC Beast and installed an Nvidia 1060 3GB. Works at PCI Express 2.0 x1, and there's no need to install a modded BIOS. :)

Playing Forza Motorsports Apex the framerate was approximately 40fps :)

Is this  EXP GDC 8.0 version? Do you connect it through mini pci-e or ngff ?

Yes, it is a V8, and I have it connected in the mini pci-e slot since my laptop doesn't have the ngff connector since I have the non-ssd version. I should also point out I'm not using the delay switch and it is connected normally to the PSU (4 pin CPU and 20 pin ATX connector to the EXP GDC 8-pin adapter). Then I ran DDU to uninstall the laptop drivers and I installed the desktop driver v372.70. Anything higher produces the Code 43 error lots of people have experienced.

I have the same exact setup as moisesmcardona. But I instead of using version 372.70 I used the oldest version there was for the GTX1060. I'm running on Windows 8 64-bit with the EXP GDC 8.0 and is connected to my mPCIE slot. I'm using a Corsair 430W PSU with an additional sata to 8pin PCI power cable. I'm also using an external monitor since I couldn't figure out how to use my internal monitor. If I had known that I didn't need to mod my BIOS I would have saved myself a lot of time and headache.

I'll try to install 372.70 drivers to see if they work and I'll confirm it as well. This whole time I thought it was a BIOS setting which was causing the error 43 but it was the drivers.

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 am interested in the adapter for the Lenovo Y510p

Hi Gerald, 

 

I'm interested in buying an adapter as soon as they are available.

 

Thanks.

Here's a video showing how to set it up, benchmark results and games running on the eGPU.

      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?

      Hi,
      I want to show you my new project.
      I bought my laptop about 5 years ago.  It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
       
      Its specification:
      Intel i7-4700MQ
      Nvidia GeForce GT745M
      16GB RAM
      512 SSD Adata SU800

       
      Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
       
      So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
      I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
       
      I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.

       
      I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
       
      My plan:
      1) unlock bios
      2) buy GTX 970
      3) enjoy Witcher 3!
       
      BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
       
      1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p

       
      - first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)

       
      -after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)

       
      2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC

      - 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
       
      3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
      Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.

       
       
      Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
       
      Greetings!
       
      I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!
