HP Omen Accelerator thunderbolt 3 to USB

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I  am a pretty active gamer and wanna step it up a bit 🙂

I now own a 15-bw051nb and I want to be able to play games such as Rainbow Six Siege and DOOM but cant because my GPU can't handle it, so I was thinking of buying a HP OMEN Acellerator but on the site it says that it connects with a thunderbolt 3 adapter, but my laptop doesnt have this. Would it be smart to use a Female Thunderbolt 3 to USB? Or would this affect the efficiency of the product?? 

I hope someone has an answer to this, if its possible I'll probably buy the product 😄

Your laptop does not have Thunderbolt, therefore no adapter in the world will make it work. It has to be physically wired to do so from the motherboard. Im sorry.
