Title: Lenovo t410 egpu interface-which one consider
Post by: Kbssfn on September 06, 2016, 09:08:56 AM

Hello
I am planning to update my t410 with an egpu adapter.
What interface should I consider? Express card or maybe pcie?
Which version of the express card is in that platform (t410)?
And I really want to know the same about pcie.

That's not exactly applies for this subforum as it's not a mac system.

It's not worth it, maximum you can get is pcie x1 @ 2.0 (if not 1.0) which is 4 to 8 times slower than what we getting on TB equipped macs.

GPU will tank, it will be very slow.

It's only worth it if you absolutely need some new connectivity standard, like DP1.2 or HDMI2.0, otherwise it's just wasted money.
