And, With Windows 10, do i need to make changes in BIOS?

First, tell us which model of Lenovo laptop you have got.

Can i use a cable to extend and put eGPU and Adaptor somewhere else too?

It is possible, but due to design of adapter it's sticks out for about 7 cm anyway (at least it's so on Y500 model).

A lot changed since that time. ANYWAY, you need to contact with gerald (his e-mail was in this thread somewhere) and ask about adapter. Sometime he have got some for sale, but sometime he running out of them and you have to wait for new batch.

Received my adapter Friday. I haven't had much of a chance to set things up until yesterday night and still am working on it. The issue I'm having right now is that I can get windows to recognize the card (1070 ti) and have corrected for the error 43 most Nvidia 10 series cards get but I cannot get this to display on my internal screen. Regardless if I disable all other cards it seems to still use the integrated graphics over the external one.

 

The power supply is brand new EVGA 650 BQ that I really would have doubts on it being the issue. I have tried both 1070 and 1070 Ti MSI Cards with identical results which leads me to believe it isn't my card. When I connect an external display to the GPU it does seem to run that but I cannot get it working with the internal display. My GPU Z results even show the card and its supplying data from the sensors to GPU Z as well. Any ideas on what my issue could be?

Is this on a y500 or y510p? On a y510p you should keep Intel graphics enabled for the Optimus to work. On y500 internal screen acceleration isn't really possible at all...

Just enabled the Intel graphics, Still not able to get things to run off the egpu. I do believe this to be a step in the right direction as prior to enabling it I was unable to open Nvidia control panel. Now I have access to the control panel and settings inside for the 1070 that's plugged in.

Does it offer any optimus-related options? Also, when right-clicking any game shortcut, do you now get an option whether to run it with intel or high performance nvidia gpu? Also, do you have intel drivers installed?

It does not however right before you mentioned it I realized in my cleaning of drivers and reinstallations I did not reinstall the intel driver. After doing that it works fine now. Thank you

I created topic on eGPU forum in Build Guides part of it. There is some benchmarks and tests, but more interesting is - Y500 with adapter now at 5th place.

 

Here is table

 

Maybe someone with Y510p create there topic too? Just for history.

 

P.S. Yeah, and links gone again... let's try old way.

Great! I can create the guide for y510p. I might copy your guide and modify it just because I'm a bit lazy lol.

No problems mate. It's not sprint, i spend about two weeks to slowly collect information (install software, run benchmarks, take screenshots) and later post it. Cool thing that there is private mode for topic and you may start it, edit, add text and pics and later release to public. When moderators will check it - it will be approved and people will see it.

Done. I've created a guide.

I've also uploaded some pics of my adapter mod there. I'll post those pics here too. Doesn't look pretty but it works great! That part is going to be inside the laptop anyway.

Created an aluminium enclosure for the pcb and added a slimline sata extension cable to utilize the slimline sata port. It's very sturdy now. I don't have to aim for the ultrabcay connector anymore. Just slide it in and both ultrabay and slimline sata port fits perfectly.

You can see the sata cable coming out from the back. That's connected to the slimline sata extender cable. I can plug it in & out on demand. Don't have pics of the other side right now.

 

This is the final setup.

Still working on the enclosure that's why you can see some white masking tape. After i'm done i'll paint it all black like the rest of the enclosure. Hard to paint the aluminium sheet without a primer.

 

Also created a backplate for the graphics card.

Gerald I tried to email you last month but email does not seem to be allowed to be delivered to you from my email address. Could you please put an adapter up for sale somewhere so I can buy it.

The connector for UB is EOL.

What's the name of UB connector? How to search it?

Look's like there are still enought left in the world... at least for now.

 

https://octopart.com/detail/all_breaks?sid=9f7f54b17b7a40b8

 

Some even offer it in small qty (less then 10 items).

 

Also, it's work a try even to chat with seller and tell them that it's better to sell 10 EOL products then keep it in warehouse and waste space. Manager may actually agree.

 

Update: 

Also founded 3D Model.

What do I need to do to be able to view the screenshots in the above posts?

I get a message that says the file cannot be viewed by my account.

I also can't download from the downloads section either.

Hey guys just wanted to say this is awesome! I can't believe I didn't hear about this project sooner.

 

Sometimes I wish the y510p had a MXM port but this is way better since there aren't that many MXM cards either.

 

About the adapter, its sold out right? no plans to make more either? is there a CAD file for it so I can build my own? I saw a link to buy spare ultrabay ports, would it be too complicated to solder myself?

Hi, I had the same idea, but Gerald wanted to keep his plans (which I totally understand), so I found Lenovo schema and tried to design adapter by myself. I have already soldered PCB, it was not that hard it just take some time. It is not working yet, but I believe I just overlooked or misunderstood some Lenovo tags from schema. When I will make it work I will definitely release whole project for everyone.

      The GPU works, The PSU works, The system works. [individually they all do work]
       
      The system works perfectly fine without the WLAN card.
       
      When i put the system to sleep and hotswap the mPCIe riser and WLAN press something on the keyboard.. Restarts.
      Will shutdown in roughly 27 seconds for those 27 seconds it works just fine like how it normally would on external monitor.
       
      When i shut it down and plug the riser and switch it on, same story. 27 seconds.
       
      I don't even see a error. I get to login screen directly. I used DDU already.
       
      I timed it. no matter what i do if i use the eGPU, External monitor it restarts instead of pause-play. I have 27 seconds.
       
      Need help!

      Hello to all dear visitors, 
       
      I have been using Lenovo y510p notebook for two years but in games I think my graphic card is inadequate. After that I've bought Mini PCI-e EXP GDC and attached it to where the wireless card socket is.  However because it has x1 speed its performance is too low. Even though on tests rx460's ranks is low than rx480, it has more performance.
       
      In x1 PCI-e port, the performance is too low and inefficient. On GPUz programme, use of memory controller is 20% but use of GPU is 100%. I mean, I've been hooked to the x1 speed.
       
      Components : EXP GDC version 8.0 +450w PSU + rx480
       
      I've read all pages about ultrabay, I want to buy and to share in forum.
       
      If anyone has ultrabay to PCI-e port, I want to buy. Please help.
       
      Thanks for everything.

      Hi, I'm having problems trying to connect a GTX 750 Ti to my Lenovo T420 using the dock EXP GDC Beast (express card version).
      My laptop: Lenovo T420
      RAM: 8GB DDR3
      CPU: Intel Core i5 2520M
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000
       
      My problem is: if I plug the express card and I turn on the laptop it doesn't boot up and the screen becomes horrible, with coloured pixels and a sound like "bip-bip".
      If I try plugging the express card when the laptop is already turned on it sees the gpu, but if try installing the drivers I have to apply the modifies restarting the computer.
      I hope you understood my problem (I don't speak English very well).
      Please help me, It's making me crazy!
       
      EDIT: I didn't say that if I plug the express card when the pc is already turned on, in the device menager there is "Error 12" on the gtx 750 ti
    • By Kel
