Betreff: 100% CPU load with 16GB RAM + eGPU

Hi there! 

 

Funny, I also started to look into some eGPU solution for mx x230. Would be really interested to find out more about this issue here. Maybe we could share some useful infos about the whole thing. BR Christopher

So far, i can share only one "useful" thing - there is absolutely no fresh information.
I can`t test this by myself - i can`t try egpu without buying.

Betreff: 100% CPU load with 16GB RAM + eGPU

Hi!

 

So I've got an update from my side. And the bad news first: I'm actually running only 12GB of RAM.

 

I got myself an GeForce GTX 970 via a V8.0 EXP GDC Beast.

 

I won't go into details how I got it running finally (in case you are interested, just let me know - spoiler: UEFI instead of bios. ubuntu was easy and debian was impossible for me in terms of external monitor setup.)

 

In any case, I updated to the 2v77 bios recently, before even buying the eGPU. After setting up the eGPU I never experienced the 100% CPU issue.

 

But again: I run my system at 12GB, not at 16GB, so actually this does not even fit to this thread, sorry for that. But for folks out there considering a eGPU, from my side I can say it workds with 12GB and the 2v77 bios (with UEFI boot).

 

Cheers!
