Hello.What specific kind of eGPU? Thuderbolt, pcie x1 or pcie x4?I personaly got EGPU in my device acer VX5 591G 54BF and it works very well.
I would find very hard to eGPU this laptop through thunderbolt since it got just a usb-c on it.There are a couple of tutorials on the internet on how to do egpu on m.2 pcie x1, by removing your wifi card and pluging a m.2 pcie x1 to x16 adapter cable, despite being somewhat bandwidth limited it works and it is cheap like 10 - 20 bucks.I've personally gone a step beyond. I had bought the m.2 pcie x4 cable adapter from ADT (30 cm in lenght) and conected it on to the m.2 nvme pcie x4 slot on the laptop, than i had tried some couple AMD GPU on it with a external psu for the gpu power conector. It worked really well, no driver nor bios mod needed. I would really recomend going this way, and is fairly easy. You can check the userbench rank page of acer vx5-591g, and you will see mine as the top bench with rx 570 egpu frim a friend of mine. I intend to buy a rtx 2070 super by the end of the year and then i will make a turorial on everything i did and how i dit.
Hello,Since the m.2 NVME slot is on the right side, faced outward, just below the usb 3.0 and usb-c. I've drilled a small square hole (about 2 usb size) on the side of the laptop, and so I do not need to open the laptop in order to do egpu, i just connect the m.2 adapter, just like a usb, it is just far deeper, I've also glued some plastic pieces inside the laptop in order to guide the m.2 adaptar to the m.2 slot. It is realy easy and fast.There are a couple of benchmark with the gtx 1080 at a m.2 pcie 3.0 x4, and the diference is negligible at faster fps (<5%), and at 4k (aroud 60 fps) there is literally no difference, with the pcie x4 ahead of the x16 (due to noise itself).I intend to play egpu at a external screen at 1440p or even 4k, so with the game at high settings the gpu is usually the bottleneck, maybe even some raytracing There is a pic on a hackerspace of the first time I did it.
Hi. I have never tested the newer nvidia nor amd gpus, but it should work just fine. The rx 570 and rx 580 worked real smoothly. I had got some issues with the gtx1070, since it uses the same driver as the gtx 1050 dgpu, and i am still working on it. I kind need a deep deactivation of the dgpu, maybe only viable via bios, not so sure.
