Hello, can anyone give working schematics and pcb layout? All links dead.

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 :(

      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?

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      Hi
       
      Currently I am using Nvidia 376.44 version for SLI functionality. On trying to install any higher version , SLI wont function & only 1 card works.
       
      if anyone is using higher version Than the one mentioned above for SLI, please let me know
       
      Thank You
