Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

Recommended Posts

Just to reconfirm, I simply need a basic model to use eGPU on my laptop, any extra sata/thunderbolt support is good but not mandatory for me. Currently I have 2 plans: Move my GTX 1080 TI from desktop to laptop, or buy a new GTX 1650 which claims  to run without power supply on any old PC. As long as the new adaptor can fulfill either one plan and can run stable, then it is ok for me. (though the GTX 1650 looks really interesting as a portable laptop upgrade)

There will always be a base model and that’s mature.

I’m just wondering how many people are interested in the ultimate but expensive y400/500/410p/510p eGPU solution. For the laptop itself is aging, I don’t know if it’s worth investing after all.

Im willing to buy at least the model with the sata cables, but if it gets too expensive i might be getting only the eGPU adapter

same as chuchoav, I prefer the cheapest version  that provides sata. But if it gets really expensive I cant afford it.

Lenovo Y510p have diffirent story, since it's have got iGPU.

 

Ah, I see. I wasn't aware they'd completely disabled the iGPU on the Y500.

@Swung Huang - wouldn't using OCulink create overhead and thus reduce the maximum performance of the GPU?

It shouldn’t. Oculink itself is designed to transfer PCIe signals.

I would immediately forget about any solutions without power supply: While it's true that the GTX 1650 runs at just 75W and therefore doesn't need any additional power connectors, 75W is still a lot.

 

Even though the GT 750M is rated for 50W TDP, while GTX 1650 is 75W, I think it would be still possible to run it without a power supply, but this would need some additional work: The stock ultrabay gpu receives most of its power from the 19V line, which you will have to convert to 12V using an efficient and powerful enough step-down converter that will have to be integrated onto the ultrabay adapter's PCB.

 

The PCIe slot on the original ultrabay adapter actually receives power from the 24pin motherboard connector, which means you will still need a power supply for it to work.

Maybe l found an elegant way to implement this project. It can make the attach/detach process as convenient as thunderbolt does.(Not hot unpluggable tho)It might be very expensive(can make the enclosure kit above US$200 but I will try my best to find cheaper part sourcesto lower the final price). Are you interested in it and willing to let me make it alive? How many of you are willing to buy it? Let me know.

(ps. It didn’t go through the proof of concept. It should work but I don’t know if I could make it work. Let me know if you DO want to PURCHASE it.

(I’m running out of money and the R&D for this project has cost me a lot :(. If you don’t REALLY want it, I don’t want to study on it any more. It cost too much of my life and money.

For anyone who wants to dive into it, it’s called oculink.

Basic version with integrated sata will be the most demand. Option to have board separated for two pieces connected with any kind of flexible cable is also very good (one piece inside ultrabay and second as stand for gpu).

Or anyone have any idea on how to get the oculink (SFF-8611) receptacle? The only source I have found is the nvme RAID cards or nvme ssd cages.

If I could find these alone then it will cut the cost a lot.

The price of oculink cable is fairly reasonable.(about US$15)

Maybe easiest way is create ultrabay adapter for something like exp gdc.

Hi good evening I was searching for options not to waste too much money as the i7-3630qm is just 40% slower than the 9th gen Intel cpu and I came by this this is a great idea. Is Gerald still selling these? If they are still on sale I would like to know the price! And thanks in advance if you can redirect me on how to buy the adapter.

@SWANG HUANG

 

Maybe do a kickstarter pledge to make sure you have the budget required -

I would pay $200 for one and

$200 for the second one as I want to buy two with the oculink design.

 

If you can't reach funding target on kickstarter for the oculink version

but you can reach a cheaper funding target then you can be sure to have funds to do the cheaper version.

 

Everyone gets the cheaper version if stage one funding target is met

or if stage two funding target is met then they get the more expensive version.

 

If you are going to be making both - then the options to pledge include getting the cheaper version for a lower amount pledge.

My current Adapter: v8.0 exp gdc laptop its a $30 dollar adapter, if you could make an affordable version it will be nice, because $200 for me feels more like getting a new GPU, than the 15% percent performance increase.

There will be a cheap version of the adapter. The $200 version is just for those who wants to pay for the premium.(What’s more, it could be wayyy cheaper if I could find any cheaper sources of the receptacle of Oculink.

 If anyone wants to research on that would be really cool!

I just want to clarify, I would appreciate two of these as soon as possible.

 

Happy to also buy the oculink ones as well.

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      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 !!!
