Honestly I would still go with thunderbolt, I'm crazy about gaming and all but wow, I don't want to disassemble my whole laptop and other fancy things just to play one game

How about using mPCIe port occupied by a 3G network card? This one is not essential for a laptop...

Hi Linus just a quick question, would it be possible to modify a desktop motherboard to connect a graphics card to a laptop?

Title says cheapest way possible....then ignores Expresscard and PCI options and selects NVME interface then pulls out Gaming laptop with 2 NVME slots because nothing else would support it. And how is a 10th gen Nvidia card the only thing faster than a Triton 700 laptop GPU? couldn't you just use a 980 or AMD card? It's not like the latter isn't all 5 year old GCN cores even now.

My laptop is alright I guess. 2.8 ghz which can go up to 3.5ghz. 8 gb ddr4 ram. But the thing I hate is my gpu. Radeon r5 m430 with 2gb vram

My set-up worked with a GTX1050 Ti. The only way to enable it without Error code 43 was to install old drivers (modded for compatibility, because the 1050ti wasn't around back then) then without restarting the computer, installing the latest 1050 Ti drivers over the top without a clean install. After restarting the computer everything worked and I got great performance... Until.. The old modded drivers were obviously causing random contradictions with nvlddmkms.sys and crashed my computer at completely random intervals. Could be 15 minutes into Grand Theft Auto V, running Ultra 30fps (more if my CPU didn't bottleneck) or it could be 2 hours in... Random crash. Lesson here is, buy or build a desktop. I'm gonna put my GTX 1050 towards one.

Hmm wonder if this will work on the HP X360 Ryzen 5 2500U laptop? It's M.2 slot is NVME capable and it connects directly to the CPU.
Matt's Aquariums (8 days ago)
It would be great if they started making mobile GPU's that connected via the M.2 pcie socket. For upgradability oc mobile devices.

Can you revisit this with a Dell M6400 or better ? They have a built in video card that is removable but is geared towards CAD. I would love to find alternatives for my free laptop to make it better towards gaming.

LINUS you r awesome
Zacronzer Zetto (11 days ago)
Yeah this is really intended for older gen laptop which does not have thunderbolt. As exp gdc have few alternatives way to be used, such as the mini Pcie, expresscard and M.2. Most laptop atleast have a wifi card installed on the Pcie slot so you can guarantee it will somewhat work, though you will most likely need ethernet or wifi dongle, I find that it is quite a hassle for newer gen laptop especially with gpu, since you need to “hotswap” the gpu. Still it serve as a good alternative to revive older laptop.

I believe MSI has a laptop docking station that uses desktop graphics cards. However, not sure if it uses thunderbolt or some other method.

I have a HP laptop ( https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-15-Notebook-PC-series/6875200/model/7089867/document/c04345418/ ) which has it's mini-PCIe slot under it's motherboard. It's very tricky to open it ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryYrCMvXBrk ) and nearly impossible to make a connection from mini-PCIe to external PCI x16 slot. Also, this laptop doesn't have USB-C, but it has a USB 3 port. I want to set up a DIY eGPU system with this laptop, without having to buy eGPU enclosures from Razor, Asus etc (these require USB type C anyways which this laptop does not have). Can you try to do make a DIY eGPU setup with a similar laptop, which has it's mini-PCIe slot under the motherboard ???
jonasakabuk (14 days ago)
Your motherboard needs to be able to support running a VGA bios/uefi optrom from a pcie device, these boards usualy dont do that, usualy when you plug a gpu into such machine it will do NOTHING not show anything on the screen on any output, it will not even ignore the gpu and just run monitor output on its onboard gfx.

Linus its recommended you actually put the PCI-E Plug in the network slot. Dont put it in the second one if you have it, switch them around. Works perfectly fine on a MSI GT70 20c
