Laptop's GPU (860M) is dead, warranty is over so they wanted 700$ for the motherboard. I don't wanna pay that much for just 860M so I will use eGPU (via M.2 NGFF - wlan card's port) if it's possible.
1. I heard that there is something named BIOS Whitelist. Can I use GTX950 as eGPU? Will BIOS block it?
2. If it's possible, how much performance loss will I have?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
This may work in theory but there are expected challenges.
BIOS whitelist do not include GTX950 as per product specs and modding BIOS can brick the board.
As the WLAN slot is intended for wireless features (x1 lane), bottlenecking is expected.
