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).

    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

  • Rangel Costes

    You should make a case for this

    Is there some way I can do this without taking apart my computer, in other words, line them up to a thunderbolt 2 or hdmi input on my computer. I want to do this so I don't need to spend 200 dollars on a graphics card box.

  • ocaiera ??? err....

  • crazeeavery XVII

    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.

  • Forseliz

    Does the adapter that you use come with all the required wires/power supply etc? Also, just to check, it makes no difference if I use a laptop screen instead of an actual desktop?

  • DJ Ustan

    I see windows loading while game is on. Is this a fake video?

  • angel me

    I got a question. Are all the video outputs on the GPU work when the GPU is mounted on the device? Can you use multi monitors? (not for gaming, I want to connect 2 extra screen other than my laptop). Thank you in advance.

  • Ayatulloh Ahad Robanie

    what motherboard or BIOS supported with external GPU? thanks your answer

  • 陈睿之

  • Jakob

    very limited info on the items in the video not even spec on the card... you can do better Matt.

  • Russ Orler

    This is the perfect thing for my DiY project. My laptop is falling apart and i am gonna make it into a super pc. I will see if i can capture the whole process and post it. It will be amazing. I just know it

  • 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

  • CabinDoor

    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.
