Falconet posted a topic in DIY e-GPU ProjectsHello, I own a Lenovo Y510p with a GT755M SLI configuration (which almost always overheats/crashes for games that DO support them) and i plan to set up an eGPU for it. I've done a considerable amount of research on the topic but there are still doubts to ascertain before moving on. 1) Is it possible for the latest series of GPUs (GTX 1070, GTX 1080) from Nvidia to be used as an eGPU? Those who've already tried it used stuff like the Razer Core or it's other branded equivalent. What I'm looking for is the complete DIY version using the EXP GDC V8 connected to the mPCIE underneath the laptop (the one which the wifi card uses). I am aware of the Thunderbolt tests on Macs but I'm curious about it's performance on the mPCIE. And would it be compatible with the mPCIE adapter? Would it be too "new" for my laptop bought in 2014? 2) If it is possible, would it be worth it? Would the bottle-necking of the mPCIE be enough to diminish its worth? I wouldn't want to go for the GTX 970 or GTX 980 because my long term plan would be to use the GTX 1070 on a desktop set up once I settle down. (I'm a travelling student btw) Thanks in advance.
huntliba posted a topic in DIY e-GPU ProjectsHi everyone, I have a problem with my rig (Win7, at the moment nvidia 372.90 ). Everything works for some time and then then its gets nvlddmkm.sys error (stoped responding and recovered). In best times its recovers but sometimes I get BSOD. I have tried different drivers, TdrDelay, TdrDdiDelay, HDMI audio off, power to max peformance in nvidia controls, Gen2 to Gen1 in BIOS. My brain is fried allready :S Can anyone give me some clues or solutions? Regards,
Hi all, As anyone using nVidia cards with OSX will know, we're limited to the 900 series cards, whether they be in eGPU's, Mac Pro or Hackintosh. Of course there is the AMD option for cards, but they simply don't meet up to any expectation I have of a card comparable to nVidia's hardware. All of my diggings has shown people saying to wait for nVidia to release webdrivers for OSX and that's going back nearly 8 months now. Honestly, I severely dislike Windows as an operating platform, and have miles of trouble getting my eGPU to work with it on my MacBook Pro. But, in lieu of Pascal support for the newer 1000 series cards, I WILL eventually switch over. I know lobbying to Apple is a dead cause, because, well, it's Apple, but I've started a petition to try and gather support for convincing nVidia to write webdrivers for 1000 series cards for OSX. So, sign and share this around, I know it's a long shot but hey, a digital signature costs you nothing. Thanks. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/pascal-support-for-osx
Guessing who will be the first company to include the nVidia Pascal 1080 and AMD Polaris GPU's inside their Laptops: 1- 2- 3- 4-
