Title: egpu with just pci-e to ngff adapter from ebay
Post by: doroninbgu on October 28, 2016, 10:20:13 PM
hi there..

i've been starting to research for EGPU in my lenovo yoga 2 pro.

i've seen BPlus solution but the price (70 usb) looked too much for me.
i've also found this adapter in ebay (in like 2 usd) that converts PCI-e to NGFF (the wifi slot i can use in my laptop)
of course i would need some way to extend the NGFF to outside the laptop case for this i also found chep solution in ebay.

would it work just like that ?

thanks !

Just keep in mind that many adapters aren't 2 way.

They need to specifically say they are to be used so.

(ie, DP to DVI adapter is just passing "legacy" wires through with single-link DVI good for 1920x1200. But absolutely will NOT convert DVI to DP, no matter how many gender changing adapters you add.)
