Can i use EGPU from mini pcie slot of Lenovo B570e

hi, 

i saw exp gdc device for using external gpu in laptops.

I have Lenovo B570e model with Core 2 duo CPU,

6gb ram{4+2}.

can i use egpu from mini pcie slot of wlan card?

i don't mind using usb wifi adapter.

 

there is also hardware button in my laptop for turning wifi on and off, which is not working properly and wifi repeatedly switching on and off if i turn it on.

so if it is possible to use egpu,  will that physical button affect egpu too?

will that work?

Hi AnkiteshGaurav,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

We cannot say it would not be possible but I am not too optimistic that this model would be a good candidate for eGPU.

 

WLAN 2 lanes are only intended for WLAN card with strict whitelist so the challenge in detection of other device is a cons. Bottleneck performance is expected if this would even push through.

 

Costing for eGPU setup is not economically wise as it may be better getting a new machine instead. There is no confirmed successful setup even on this model making it less probable.

 

Considering the issue with the wifi button, you can see that it may not be a good move for you on this machine.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Thanks for reply.

 

If i cannot use egpu, can i add gpu inside it?

as the future versions of lenovo B570e includes gpu with upgraded cpu.

I don't have a big budget so can't buy a new machine, so looking for a way to get my work done in same laptop by adding gpu ( cause my work can't be done without gpu)

so if there is a cheap way i can add gpu in this laptop, plz tell.

that'd be helpful.

Thanks

Hi AnkiteshGaurav,

 

Greetings.

 

Would you share your machine number/ MTM from the sticker?

Usually machine with dedicated GPU is soldered onboard so it cannot be changed.

 

There may be a chance to upgrade the CPU but you need to check if your work GPU need can be enough for the graphics that Intel CPU can provide which may be the cheapest way.

 

Regards
