Can I use an external GPU or graphics amplifier for my HP PAVILLION POWER GAMING LAPTOP

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Power - 15-cb003na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if i could use an external graphics amplifier for my laptop as the new graphics cards are coming up, I have an I5 processor and gtx1050, 8 gb ram which im thinking of doubling and 128gb ssd and 1tb hdd. I do have a thunderbolt port but not sure if its thunderbolt 3 or not.

Thank You!

The specs of your machine is




To be able to add eCPU with a better video card you need a Thunderbolt™ Gen 3 port which your machine does not have.


For RAM and Storage, you can add as you wish.
