X220 eGPU setup with nVidia 10xx series, is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello! The title. Currently I am using GTX670 without any problem. I know that there will be almost no performance improvement if I switch to one of the 10xx cards (1070 or 1080 preferable). But still, I want to know if there anyone here can approve or disapprove the possibility such eGPU set-up: X220+ nVidia (1060, 1070 or 1080).

 

P.S. I have modified BIOS so setting up TOLUD will not be a problem and I am on Windows 7 x64 Home Pro.

 

Thanks for your time.

Saw how much people viewed the topic, I have found an answer - it is possible, but you forced to use older drivers for that task.

Is this helps you... I just attached a GTX 1050 to my X220, but I do not think it's going to perform better than your current setup.

 

If you wonder why I did choose the GTX 1050, those were the main points:

 

- Best performing card powered just by the PCI-e slot

- Low profile version available

- DisplayPort (full size) output

 

To get rid of the error 43, I'm using 375.63 drivers

There is little benefit to using anything more powerful than a GTX670 because of PCIe x1.2 bandwidth limitations, unless you wish to utilise CUDA or exclusive features like Ansel.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Actually I have bought 1080 and the performance bonus was quite significant in comparison to GTX670 I have had. With GTX670 I have got 5000 points in demo version of 3DMark, but with GTX1080 I am getting almost 9000 points! With that improvement I am able to play in Resident Evil 7 on max settings! Contrary  With GTX670 it was barely playable on lowest settings.

 

 I am not care much about error 43, be cause:

1. I have bought GTX1080 due my GTX670 "past away" and with thoughts of switching to TB3 notebook in foreseeable future;

2. When it comes to hardware or\and software my preference is to stick to the rule "If it ain't broke, do not fix it".
