Is lenovo g40-80 eGPU compatible?

2018-09-02, 18:47 PM

Hello guys, how are you?

I have a lenovo g40-80 and I was thinking about upgrading it with a eGPU device, but I have a few doubts about it.

It its even compatible with the notebook model?

What other informations should I be aware when analising the best option to buy? (I mean, about the device and about my notebook too)

 

Thanks u all! <3

Most of the time the eGPU requires USB-C or Thunderbolt connectivity. There are a few that use USB3 but it may not have a good enough data rate to make it worthwhile.

I personally would build up an Micro ATX case before investing in an eGPU. A lot less complicated, better upgrade options for future CPU / GPU and just about the same foot print.
