    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    Let me get this straight: you can use AMD cards with stock BIOS but you need an external monitor? and you can use the internal monitor with an nVidia eGPU but then you have to mod the BIOS? BTW got prices for the 3D printed version? I rather have space for a 3.5 drive since those are faster, bigger and since I need a PSU for the graphics card I can power a 3.5 HDD too. Could be a slot on the other side of the GPU instead of under it.

    Where to find a 4910MQ for cheap?

    New ones are soldered? that sucks, they really want to make laptops disposable, its insane. I did look for used laptops but it would be at least twice the price of just the chip from a recycling company. Dunno if I can sell a laptop without CPU for the difference. The 4700hq on my Y510p also has 6M of cache, dont really see the point, it scores about 718 more on pcmark but the 4910 is the real upgrade at 1,607 points more.

    Alright, so the PCB+acrylic is the most expensive right? BTW that case looks cool but wont the HDD take bandwidth from the PCIe port?

    Where to find a 4910MQ for cheap?

    Got the Y510p and afaik the 4910mq is as high as I can upgrade to, but I can't find any for less than $150, why is it that expensive when its a 6yo part? Already tried ebay and AE, any ideas? BTW tried looking for a 4800mq, should I get that and OC'd it to 2.9ghz to match the 4910? can the stock heatsink handle it?

    I sent an email to the gmail address you posted before, BTW are you going to include the acrylic parts with the PCB versions? if shipping is too expensive I could do my own though I would need the CNC layout

    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?

    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    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

    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?
  11. 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
  13. Drozof

    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?
