  1. First and foremost: this is a HASSLE-FREE BUILD. You will not find creative schematics, acrobatic soldering, custom BIOSes or anything like that: this is pure "just works eGPU" with Win10 bootcamp and an external display (so, no OSX support and no internal monitor either) Let's begin! Hardware: - Macbook Pro Retina Mid 2014 with nVidia GT750M - Akitio Thunder2 - MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8G OC - Dell DA-2 12V (ended up not using it) - Old Corsair 540W Modular PSU Setup: None. Absolutely no software setup. I had my previously working Win10 bootcamp machine installed, and it was a regular, apple-certified, Win10 installation done via bootcamp assistant, so no UEFI workaround or custom BIOS. The works Got my Akitio, unbox and open. Just 2 screws and voila. Removed the back plate (4 little screws) I unplugged both the fan and the led cable and removed the glued support for the cable, you can still see the glue Removing the fan was just a matter of removing 4 screws, the LED light took just a bit of force and it popped out of the socket. Here's all the things from the Akitio you will not use. As you can see from the hardware list, I decided to go with a full sized GTX card, and not just a full-sized one, a pretty big one at that. The MSI GTX1070 Armor OC does not have any LEDs or fancy things, just 2 big (and quiet) fans and that's that. So, of course, I had to bend the Akitio to make room for the card. I went with the "jeweller's screwdriver" technique. Fast and easy: just put a little flat screwdriver near the soldering at the bottom of the enclosure and work your way in lightly with a hammer. Took me 1 minute and the little solderings popped open. Now it was just a matter of applying a bit of brute force and bend the enclosure open. Not pretty, I know... but I'm not looking for pretty. Besides, the card is so long it covers the bent enclosure and then some! I gotta say, I was getting pretty impatient at this point. I put the card in, adjusted the two screws to set it in place and checked the spacing between the card and the bent enclosure. Everything was in order. Not pretty, again, but in order. At this point, I encountered a little snafu in my plan. I had bought the famous Dell DA-2 to power my GPU.. turns out this monster of a card has an 8 pin power slot, not a 6 pin one. Huh. Now what? Remember, this was supposed to be a hassle-free installation, no soldering or complicated workarounds. I remembered I had an oldish PSU from my desktop era sitting in a closed, took it out, plugged it in and got a nice 8-pin cable to power my GPU. (of course I had to use the paperclip-trick to power the PSU, but it's so basic, I'm not counting that as a hassle). To power the Akitio, since this a... let's say it again, everyone... hassle free build, I didn't want to use any custom made barrels or anything, so I used the original PSU, plugged it in and that's it. It was time to power it all up and see what the future brings. Thunderbolt cable connected, external monitor plugged in with a displayport cable, everything powered up... turn on MBP: nothing. Black screen. Huh. Powered down, tried to plug the thunderbold cable in AFTER the boot. Got a "hey I found something" sound from Windows, but nothing else. Reboot. Now the MBP started in Bootcamp, and Device Manager said there was a "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". Bingo! Downloaded latest nVidia drivers, gave it a go: oh, damn! I have 2 video cards! Rebooted again The external monitor came to life, so I closed the lid on my MacBook (I'm using it in clamshell mode, I have no need for another screen) and there it was. With this solution, you don't even need to go and disable the "internal" 750M, Didn't have the time to make a 3D Mark benchmark, yet... but these were the settings of my WoW client yesterday and @2560x1440 with all ultra settings I had 67fps. Not too shabby Future implementations: - power the Akitio via the barrel to remove an external PSU - organize cables and spaces - switch PSU: this one has a terrible case of "coil whining", it looks like I'm skinning a cat... - IF I ever have any spare time, try and put everything inside a box: I'm thinking of one of those ikea metal boxes... Thank you all for your help and... comments appreciated! (everything but: "it's ugly!". That one I know )

Then add the code as shown in the post above. Specific to HP systems: On compiling, errors will be detected. (Do not click on 'Fix errors' as it doesn't help with these specific errors). To get past this, delete the full stops at the specified line numbers, usually near a text string inside quotes [" " ...] . Also, look for the If (CondRefOf (FPED)) { FPED () } block and move it whole, to inside the Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) block, under the Scope (GFX0) block, in the file. Try compiling and ensure that there are no errors. (Warnings are not a problem). Save the file as .dsl. Open command prompt in that folder, then compile using the iasl command and the filename you saved the dsl file with. That should create an aml file. Again, in command prompt, run the asl command with the newly created aml file. Also run bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON, to allow the DSDT table override. Reboot and check device manager in Resources by Connection view, and ensure that there is a 'Large Memory' entry. Install nando's DIY eGPU Setup 1.3. Preferably, extract the files and write to/setup a USB stick. Boot from the flash drive and install.

  3. So according to PC Gamer, they have a "source" who tells them NVIDIA will be readying it's newest Pascal chips for the mobile form factor and they will be released sometime in August/September of this year. In addition, the rumor is these new GPUs will not be cut down M variants but be full-fledged desktop GPUs crammed into high performance notebooks (e.g. MSI and Clevo) but just clocked lower to fit the TDP and power envelope. That shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone since NVIDIA crammed a 165W desktop 980 in notebooks last year and with GTX 1070 only sipping 150W and GTX 1080 at 180W, it makes sense to release these as soon as possible. Despite what PC Gamer says, we may yet still see M variants with different names down the line as there are a lot of gamers out there that still want high performance chips but with thinner profiles and longer battery lives but that will probably come sometime after the 1080/1070 are released for notebooks. In addition, we've still got AMD's newest Polaris coming and with the 480 only consuming 150W, AMD could easily shoehorn that into a notebook just as NVIDIA is doing so we expect both companies to announce availability of their newest notebook graphics chips soon.

  5. Hi, I'm using a 2015 MBPr 15" (running windows 10 through bootcamp), with a gtx 1070 plugged into an akitio thunder 2, which plugs in to the thunderbolt port on my laptop. I tried to install the drivers, but the installation software cant recognize the gpu plugged into the thunderbolt port. It also doesn't show in device manager. Interestingly enough, several new things appear in device manager, under system devices, several PCI upstream and PCI downstream switch ports are connected, which seem to be from the thunder2. The lights on the GPU itself change depending on whether or not it is plugged into the thunderbolt port, and I'm certain that it's getting enough power from my PSU. Can anyone help me get this set up? Thanks
  6. Dear Respected Members, I want your advice please: Upgrading my Clevo P570WM from GTX 880m SLI to GTX 980m SLI (=$2000) or the new GTX 1070/1080 if applicable? I need to verify if it will support one or 2 of them in SLI?? or Get a new Clevo P870 or Eurocom Sky 9XE Unlocked with the 980m's SLI (=$3500)? and then I have to sell my old Beast and if your advice is to go for the new system, what is the best choice?: 1- GTX 980m SLI 2- GTX 980 Desktop 3- Just wait for the GTX 980 Desktop SLI? 4- GTX 1070/1080 if applicable 5- Something else Best Regards.
  7. So guys, what's your thoughts on the new latest and greatest from Nvidia. According to benchmark results, posted by Nvidia on their official site and released at the conference, the GTX 1070 pulls slightly ahead of the Titan X, which is a pretty good feat. considering that it costs $359, will you guys be settling for this or the 1080?
  8. I am looking to buy for my MBP mid 2014 GT750m an EGPU for graphics and VFX not games. Now the GTX 980Ti is dropping in price to the level of a GTX 1070, would I be better of with the GTX 980Ti for my work or should i get the GTX 1070 and hopefully have the pascal drivers for OSX in the near future. I know that the 980Ti has a lot more CUDA cores 2816 vs 1920 , but is it likely that the Pascal Architecture even though has less CUDA cores be quicker in the future. I like that the power needed to drive the 1070 is much less and runs cooler. Tell me your opinions and if anyone else has knowledge on this matter please share. TIA
  9. NVIDIA has officially lifted the NDA for the GTX 1070 which will be priced at $379 for the non-reference I mean non-Founders Edition card and $449 for the Founders Edition. Starting June 10th, we should see Founders Edition cards hit the market first which will then be followed by custom AIB cards that will vary in price anywhere from $380 to $450+. The GTX 1070 has a 256 bit bus like it's bigger sibling the 1080 but has 8 GB GDDR5 ram clocked at 8 GHz giving it less bandwidth than the 1080. In addition, the GTX 1070 has been gutted by NVIDIA and is left with 15 SM (streaming processors) and 1920 CUDA cores. It also features 120 TMU (texture mapping units) and 64 ROPs (render output unit/raster operations pipeline) with a peak fillrate of approximately 202 Gigatexels/sec.

The power delivery system of the 1070 has been cut down a bit more compared to the 1080 and is equipped with a 4-phase dual-FET design.
