Yes it will work via the express card.
You will need an express card slot and a processor with a HD3000 or better, as far as I know there is no processor option for the X220, that does not have one of those. Be aware that eGPU today is mostly a DYI solution with lot's of hassles, but it will work.
Here is something you should thoroughly read and understand before going down this road:

Thanks for reply, but if you have not noticed I have eGPU already (see the signature), the question is, if it will work with 16 gb or not.

Sorry. I was not reading as attentive as I should have. My bad.
Well, it is "working" (as in the GPU is being found etc.) , but there are unsolved performance issues related to 16gig so I guess updating RAM is tedious at this point as long as we do not hear back from lenovo.

Hehe, understood, and I think nothing will happen, since the x230 Lenovo more and more does not give ... about their consumers. Sad but true.
