Lenovo Yoga 720 12 with eGPU?

Hello Community Experts


I have an Lenovo Yoga 12", which I'm not sure if it has the thunderbolt 3 connection(which on my understanding of eGPUS is the only viable connector). And I want to run a eGPU on this laptop, can I do the connection with an eGPU using this laptop? Is this possible? If not, can I upgrade my graphics performance somehow?


Looking foward for any help!

Re: Lenovo Yoga 720 12 with eGPU?

Hello anthonycarvalho,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums. The Lenovo Yoga 720 12" Overview did not mention that it came with thunderbolt, so we don't recommend an eGPU with just the USB 3.1 as it may not work (have not officially tested) or even if it works it may not maximize or boost the graphics performance. And we apologize as this laptop's gpu is soldered and not upgradeable.2 You can check our official Lenovo website for the Black Friday deals that is happening now
