    You can't use external GPU on this device, because eGPU requires USB type C thunderbolt port, which this device doesn't have(it has USB type is 3.1 gen 1 same as USB type A 3.0).
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

  • It may try to use the express mini pci port of the wlan network card! However I do not think the investment in this kind of adaptation is worth it!
