HP Notebook - 15-af122nd (ENERGY STAR) EGPU

HP Notebook - 15-af122nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello

 

I was wondering if i'm able to upgrade my laptop's gaming experience. So i did a bit of research and found out about eGpu's. I read somewehere that it could help, but elsewehere i read that things like this are just myths. So can anybody help me on this? I have little to no knowledge about graphic cards in general, so i have to do some more research about it myself. Money is not really a problem, but i like to avoid spending huge amounts for this. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

That is true in one way. Why spending money to buy a PORTABLE laprop then put it with a eGPU when only need around that amount of money to buy a better desktop.

 

For eGPU, please look at this:

My suggestion: please stop thinking about upgrading GPU for normal laptops. We can only upgrade GPU on SOME, not all, workstation class laptops and they cost up to 5 times our normal laptop.

 

If money is not a concern, buy a REAL games laptop could be simpler and nicer. HP has some Omen machines (not Pavilion gaming machine), other vendors also have some.

 

Regards.
