Great news, my version 3 is working stable :) Now I want to do same case for it.
I finished yesterday in the night so I only tested Apex legends for 1 hour. See screenshot. (80-90 FPS stable) Ultra settings (2560x1080). 
GPU: RX 580 8GB NITRO+

Hello!
Good luck in the development. Looking forward to buy an adapter.

here all credit to @geralt

Thanks. 

 

Parts are obsolete. :(

 

I saw the other user has its own version. I wish they share it.

I use the same parts as  gerald. If you search deep there are still some shops where it is possible to buy it.

Having the cable replaced and got a new design on laptop side.

Now running @ PCIe 3.0 x8 stable.

(Will get these things for sale, but not now.

Hi new member here, been following this forum for a bit, hopping not to sound rude, is there any news on this adapter?

I want to buy an adapter that will work with the Y500 (BIOS mod from High_Voltagenvidia-error43-fixer)

I too want to know, that doesnt needs the ultrabay socket part right? I can't find that one anywhere

 

BTW probably a dumb question but what is the bandwidth difference between M.2 and ultrabay? I heard that people using M.2 eGPU adapters see a loss of <10% compared to PCIe x16 which TBH is something I can live with

@Drozof You can only use M.2 for PCIe if the socket supports NVMe. This laptop supports M.2 SATA only, therefore your only option other than using the adapter would be plugging a PCIe x1 cable instead of the wireless card.

And speaking of the adapters, I would say that getting them made sounds quite realistic to me. The conditions are favourable.  We just need someone willing to invest their time and money to get this done.

 

Speaking of PCB design, I'm pretty sure @gerald, @Swung Huang or @Zakyn will be more than happy to share, should we get this going.

 

Let's say there's 50 people willing to buy an adapter for $100.

 

One can get 50pcs 4-layer 10x15cm impedance-rated PCBs from JLCPCB for just above $100 + shipping + import tax. Let shipping + tax be like $50.

The connector is currently $6.14/piece with free international shipping here (correct me if this is a wrong connector). Other components (PCIe slot, PSU connector, SMDs), let's say another $10 per adapter.

 

We're getting about $1000 in expenses + manual labor with a perspective of earning $5000.

 

Good question now is how many people would actually be ready to buy one right now, considering the Y510p is already a really old machine?

Not many, but still a few of them. I saw them here and at eGPU forum (after i and intruder share result and Y500 and Y510p at top list).

 

People which want to buy this adapter should accept that:

 

1. This adapter is temporary solution of a problem. 4 Core CPUs of Y500 and Y510p will gone soon in history;

2. You still must buy PSU (probably good one to be able transfer it later in Desktop and don't buy new one, because you new system more power hungry then just one eGPU);

3. And your main problem - GPU. So far only GTX 10XX was tested, no data about RTX 20XX cards.

 

I may support development of new adapter, but i have no skills in soldering at all. I can't assemble it and properly test it, only compare results with original adapter on one machine - Lenovo Y500 with GTX 1080 Ti.

 

Also, i think design must be changed, since heavy cooling system of some cards don't allow it to stay vertically - need to add support.

@Bronius First of all, find where to buy an ultrabay connector, and buy one. Then, order a PCB from China (not very expensive). Get all the rest from Ebay or Aliexpress and solder everything together!

 

@rusTORK You've actually made a really good point here about 1600/2000-series cards. Has anyone tested any of them?

RTX2000series is confirmed to work. I have got a 2070 working on my machine. And I’m trying to get it work with internal display(using Looking glass or sth like framebuffer copying.

 I’m gonna assign my y400 for campus dorm gaming machine lol.

I’m still not working on it tho. I’ll be back in two month.(NCEE is starting from 6/8 8:00 in CST/UTC+8)

Wish the god bless me!

Also I have two versions of adapter. One is the board (the one similar to the Gerald one),and with an arcylic supporting to hold the GPU in place. You can also purchase the casing if you already have gerald’s board.

Another one is cable-case model. There’s an module plugged in the laptop and running a cable to the box where GPU is in. Then you can put your GPU aside and won’t have a GPU in the way!

Both version is planned to be shipped in the mid June.(If there’s nothing else preventing me to do this :(

      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.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      Hey Everyone. I'm looking through the forums and found out that I can make my old Lenovo a Hackintosh. Is it worth doing? Can you dual boot Windows 10 and OS10? 
    • By SnipeKing17
      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.
