Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

Recommended Posts

They do have their own variant of switchable graphics, though. IIRC it also works by switching with Intel integrated graphics. But yeah, looks like in our case Optimus is the only solution for switchable graphics.

 

Yet, it looks like thanks to some new features in Windows 10 it should be possible to get internal screen working using these clever hacks. By doing this, one can get internal screen operation with AMD cards and on computers like Y500/Y400, which have their Intel GPU permanently disabled.

So, I flashed bios from this topic and  try gpu for the first time. Y500, Rx 560 4GB(without self power. Pasive) I did setup nothing. I use 2 ext monitor and int monitor on latop.  Later I´ll try some games. I´m going to try nvidia gpu. I´ll post result. If I disconnect or connect GT650M, it´s look like same. Only in notification are i see Nvidia icon.

Hey Kuneroll,

 

Do you mean the AMD card does work, and the NVIDIA cards don't?

Right.

Device manager doesn't see nvidia

Very cool! Another successful result with the y500 version of the mod!

 

Regarding the non-working Nvidia, can you check the model of the card? The HD7950 is an AMD GPU, not Nvidia. Also, did you make sure that separate power (6pin/8pin connectors) is supplied to the card before testing?

 

I personally don't see any reason for Nvidia not to work, as @Swung Huang has previously reported GTX 1070 working on Y400. Therefore whatever model your card is, the problem is most likely the card itself, not the BIOS mod or the adapter.

Do you mean your eGPU doesn't show up in the device manager? It seems like a incorrect connection. not bios problems.

Sorry HD7950 is AMD. Yes I used separate power, it has 2x 6pin. Fans are spin.

So, one AMD card worked, but the other didn't. I wonder whether the problem is really the card or something else. Do the fans spin up at all?

It could be. Sometimes I experienced the fan spinning while the graphics card is not actually showing up. It's probably caused by a poor contact and can be easily fixed by reconnecting or sth like that.

So you're saying it works with internal screen now? This is awesome! What GPU model are you using? And did it only require disabling internal Nvidia in device manager or also in BIOS?

Hi, yes I just disabled my gt750m in device manager and restarted my laptop. I am using nvidia GTX1060 6GB from Zotac in mini version.

It should. With the intel graphics, it should be done quite easily. y400/500 have hardware-disabled the iGPU, so no luck for me XD

Even if the laptop didn't use two nvidia cards?

It's just a typical Optimus setup. An iGPU and a nvidia gpu. Nothing special.

@Swung Huang could make me and sell you version of the adapter? There is some tests I would like to do.

 

Thank you

 

Awww.... Basically it's for my personal use. And it have several flaws to fix and I'm gonna do som improvement. Maybe I will sell them later, but it depends.I'm busy these days after all...

I for one would like to get a pcb design and try to make one by myself :) this computer is almost a relic now, which needs too much parts upgraded (+more but still not top speed ram, usb hub fixed as in time capacitors get bad and does not provide as much current as before, external gpu adapter + buy new gpu to play latest games or games in performace mode, upgrade intel wifi centrino which sucks, and haswell cpu..) in comparison to buying new one with desktop-grade gpu already in place.

 

But I still would like to see pcb design and try to solder the eGPU adapter by myself :) just because I like soldering :D

Totally agree, But given the current situation with prices and availability, I'd say it ain't bad idea to keep it. I almost wanted to pull the trigger on a brand new ryzen mini itx but the gains compared to a fully loaded y510p isn't worth it. I've been thinking to buy a top end haswell chip(like 4940MX) but not sure about the VRMs. I can still live with DDR3L memory just fine.

Not a problem, Tesla. You must make money for your work. Just share it when you pull a plug :) I hope my laptop will not be fried by then ;D

      Hello everyone
      I created a case for egpu using 2.5mm acrylic sheets. The first time I created a case to support a GPU + ATX psu
      Now I created another one for the GPU with an external Xbox 360 203w psu.
      the finish was not good but for my use it is already good.
       
      *both cases album
      *Construction of the second case 
      *adapting xbox psu to 8pin power (taken from 24pin)
       
      all made by hand with the tools I had.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.
