HP 15-dc0001na suitable eGPU to play Half Life with Rift S VR headset

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 15-dc0001na Gaming Laptop

My son has a Rift S VR headset and wants to play Half Life. The graphics card is not able to play the game as it quite laggy and is below recommended specs for the game, so I am looking at options to add an external GPU.

The specs of your machine is


It only has


  • 1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 1 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, DP1.2, HP Sleep and Charge);
  • 3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge);
  • 1 HDMI;
  • 1 RJ-45;
  • 1 headphone/microphone combo

Unfortunately it does not have any available port for you to use an eGPU which is better than its dedicated NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 (2 GB GDDR5).
