Hi rraviprtp98

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Common to G40 series only offers 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0, CRT, HDMI, RJ-45 ports, card reader and audio port but do not have thunderbolt support.

 

You may have searched DIY project on claims done with using the wireless port for the connection and does involve physically modifying not only the bottom cover and also the internal part for a possibility of eGPU connection.

 

Since the risk and costing may be greater than actual laptop use or better yet a desktop systemboard set up instead, it is not advised not unless a verified set up is confirmed.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards
