    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    Oh man that sucks, thanks anyway BTW are there any workarounds on the ultrabay to having to buy an ultrabay socket part? can I make like a PCB that slots in like a card then solder the cables to it?

    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

    Lenovo Y510P CPU Upgrade

    I know this is an old thread but @johnbizokk what increase in scores you got in benchmarks vs the original 4700?

    I had similar problems with a radeon on win7, what was your BSOD? irq_error? Thanks

    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    Alright, so on the AMD side what would be a good card that wont get a bottleneck? some 1070-equivalent so I can run it with the stock BIOS @Swung Huang awesome rig man! how did you wired it?
  6. Has any company out there launched a laptop with an external MXM port? Just curious since with the boom in the gaming laptop market and some companies launching eGPU thunderbolt enclosures, isnt the MXM faster? Is it because of licensing issues? or hardware problems?

    BTW now that we can use nvidia GPUs is it possible to use the internal GT750 at the same time? like for SLI or physx

    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    I see thanks for the clarification, whenever I get the kicad file I'll check over here to get an estimate. BTW anyone knows what the bottleneck of this system would be? like, I have a i7-4700MQ and the adapter is 8x PCIe, at which point those components and not the GPU become the bottleneck? like, would you put a 2080 on this or it would be a waste of GPU power?

    I would like to get the schematics too Maybe we could open source the design? Also is this PCB too complex to do it with toner transfer?

    Has Gerald explained why? I mean does he plan to start making PCBs again? Also is the ultrabay port pin layout the same as PCI?

    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?
  12. Sup guys, I'm Drozof and I been doing stuff with GPUs ever since I got a GF4 as a kid and OC'd it so I could get good frames on Vice City Right now I'm mostly into laptop graphics, wondering why MXM ports aren't more common.
