lenovo z51-70 eGPU

Hi All,


May i ask if it is possible to use an eGPU on this laptop? i am planning to buy a mini PCI-E dock and hook it up with gtx1060. Will it work or not? also, the mini PCI-E dock will go to the wireless lan slot, may i know what the card slot is (Mini PCI-E slot or NGFF slot)?

Hi Ronne,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


The model do not carry thunderbolt features and it seems that you are planning using the WLAN slot for connection. We do not have confirmed cases successful with such on this model so we cannot say if this would work smoothly for you.


The type of slot available that the wlan card is using as  PCI Express Mini Card for wireless LAN described on the hardware manual.


I hope this helps answer your query.

This will not work that slot is tied to the usb system thus not a true pci-e. Additionally it has a white list of things it recognizes.
