    Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    This is the best news and update for me in 2019, a lot thumbs up for this !!!

    Sorry, to make it clear I mean plug in the cables from ePSU to eGPU directly without power pin adaptor. This is because I am planning to use GTX 1080 TI and it needs 8+6 pins, those sample in previous pages only has 8 pins.

    Why power pin adaptor is needed? Can we just simply connect the power cable from PSU to eGPU?

    The only option now is wait for those who are working on their own trial adaptor to successfully fabricate one, then mass pro for sale. Too many uncertainty, hopefully someone succeed in manufacturing, cant wait to buy one to upgrade my 5 year old laptop.

    Hi guys, any update for the new adaptors?

    Thanks and good luck to all ultrabay-pcie adaptor makers. Meanwhile waiting for new batch of adaptors or tutorial of how to do so, I just ordered a SilverStone 500W SFX-L PSU and a Cougar QBX m-itx case to be my eGPU enclosure as I dont have the skills to make myself one. Ryzen 3000 chips are coming next month along with AMD new Navi GPUs, guess it is a good time to buy an AMD GPU with same performance as RTX cards at half of the prices as our egpu, if the leaks are real.

    @Zakyn If you have plans to fabricate a few more to sell, i think we can nego on the price later. Good luck on your project too. Edit: Or maybe you can share a full tutorial on how to fabricate the adaptor ourselves, given that we get the ultrabay connector from the link above.

    This ^^ For those skilled enough to manufacture some adaptors, manolis had posted a link for the neccessary component up there. Hopefully we will see the next batch of adaptor soon, even better with a design like Swung Huang, his version is really cool.

    I wonder is it possible for me to buy one adaptor before year 2019, or how long I need to wait for the next batch of adaptors... For the time being, is there anyone who can access to the limited materials, and willing to manufacture a few copies of the adaptor to sell on ebay?

    @Swung Huang @Celestus TY for replying, some silly questions here too: 1. Does we have to remove the wifi part etc and use an usb wifi etc to use this adaptor? Just read this somewhere from the internet. 2. Does the laptop gets powered up by the gpu power supply or we have to use 2 power supply with eGPU setup? I will probably buy a RTX 2070 to run some deep learning training on GPU once I got the adaptor. The performance of GT 755M is really bad on training data, 50x slower than my classmate's laptop (GTX 1070 TI). Just ran an user benchtest and this is my result on Lenovo Y510P. UserBenchmarks: Game 20%, Desk 46%, Work 33% CPU: Intel Core i7-4700MQ - 67% GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 755M - 12.5% HDD: Seagate Momentus 2.5" 1TB - 49.5% RAM: Samsung M471B1G73QH0-YK0 1x8GB - 30.9% MBD: Lenovo 20217 12.5% for GPU, nearly all PC beats me lol...

    TY for reply, so the current bottleneck of this project is the lack of components to build the adaptor I see... Hopefully some pro guys can still get some to make it for sale, or else rebuilding a new Desktop with good GPU will be too costly. And I read from the previous page, if I understand it correctly nvdia cards above GTX 1070 (GTX 1070 TI, 1080, 1080 TI, RTX 2070, 2080,2080 TI) has the same performance as 1070 because of CPU bottleneck?

    Hi all, I am a new student in AI field with limited EE and computer knowledge. Sorry if my question looks silly, does we simply have to open the computer case, remove the dvd drive (unscrew?) and then plug in this gerald adaptor to complete the hardware installation? Is there someone here who still has a way to buy neccessary component, willing to build a couple adaptors for sale? How much does this adaptor cost? Btw the design of the board + acrylic above is really nice. If someone can manufacture one like the above, i will 100% buy it, if the price isn't too high for me. XD
