Gaming on a Laptop using an External GPU

In this experimental video I try connecting a desktop graphics card to a laptop... the results were certainly interesting.


I've been wanting to try this out for a while, so a big thanks to BangGood for sending me the adapter (ebay link above, banggood link below).

    Diy Perks, I think the concept of an external GPU is really cool, but as I've seen you build cases and remakes of laptops, I was wondering if it would be possible to build a mount/ new case for the laptop that included the GPU to be attached and therefore more portable. If I could throw my 8th gen intel i3 1inch thick computer in my bag with an eGPU attached to the bottom of it, I totally would. It would make gaming while travelling more accessible and minimalistic.

  • Angel LaHash

    How far can you push this, ie can you use two Graphics card with SLI/Crossover Link

  • Jaime Reusche

    Used this on an old Acer Aspire V3-571G with an Nvidia GTX970, worked well for one week, last night it went dead; the GPU felt hot but the fans had been running. Won't turn on again, don't know if it is the hub that was defective or the GPU, but it was not the power unit (650M Gold certified). Reached out to Nvidia and the merchant for the hub, still waiting for replies. Anyone had anything like this happen?? Thanks

  • Waleed Salem

    it's good for strong CPU like i7 4th gen or higher but if your CPU is too old it's not working fine

  • Jazzhandedly

    This was back when you were a noob and thought it was a good idea to have loud, intrusive BG music. It's a pleague on youtube, and I don't understand how it came about. Thank god it died down and is seen as amateurish and/or douchy now.

    Can I connect This graphics card to my dell vostro 2520 laptop please response

  • Dylan Enricho Le Roux

    I have kind of a long question. Lol. I have a Dell XPS 17-L702X laptop that has a i7-2nd gen cpu, GeForce GTX 555M gpu and 16gb of ram running windows 10 pro. It's a great machine but it's struggling with modern gaming. My question is if I do add a gpu to my motherboard via the pci-express riser card adapter, would the gigs of the gpu be added to my 3gb dedicated onboard gpu or would it be a stand alone figure? Also would the work together as one unit or will the GB of the external Gpu only be picked up by games? I would like to know because Im interested in doing one of your DIY builds turning my laptop into a desktop but I'd like to add the gpu.. Looking forward to your reply or anyone that can answer my questions. Id appreciate

  • Kaizerr9311 Poos4eva

    Please answer ASAP can you use the laptop graphic card and the pc graphic card together to play gamesAnd if the graphic card is not the same can you still use both

  • Aj mgd

    Loving it! Anyone asking any variation of "why?" is really not getting the point...

  • V i d e o s #2

    How does your laptop cpu withstand the gpu?

  • Brian W

    Humm, I watched your other video turning old laptops into a media PC and I'm thinking about doing it. I wonder if I make or get a big enough case if I could use this to upgrade the gpu? Making it a light gaming rig and media server.

  • Boodooa Mahendraduth

    Can we use pc motherboard as pci slot then connect laptop to the gpu via hdmi?.. Will it work?

  • The gravedigger's cave

    Just for fun I love to see the performance of this in a 1gen Atom netbook

  • Parapa Satrapa

    You should make a second laptop to pc conversion build video with this intergrated

  • George Ivanchikov

    Very impressive given the laptop is most likely using a PCIe x1 2.0 link. Your pushing a very large about of data over a straw and somehow getting away with it.

  • BlackLung Morgan

    What kind of graphics card is it

  • oday jbara

    Where i can find the piece that the card sit on ? Can any one tell me the name of the piece?
