EGpu vs Gpu

If i have 980m laptop and i connect used 980 graphic card

On egpu box with thunderbolt 2.

Is it worth buying 980 graphic card versus 980m on laptop.

My price limit is used geforce 980s level.

How much does thunderbolt 2 slow down your laptop?

Thanks. :lmao:


My laptop is g751jy 2015 from asus.

I don't think that egpu is good for laptop. GPU for laptop size is good for laptop and 980m is good for gaming in laptop.
To achieve something first try
to get the knowledge about it.
Be happy, always try
for it

It's not. If you already have a 980m the upgrade to a 980 would be relatively small. Plus EGPU boxes are kinda pricey right now anyways. 

 

It wouldn't? I'm not really sure what you're asking. If you mean bandwidth to the external card then you're fine. Current PCIe bandwidth standards are way overkill for anything consumer, or even enthusiast, oriented right now. Part of why most integrated dedicated GPUs only run at x4 or x8 and not x16. 


99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

Thats cool!

But 980m is worth 770 and 980 is still slightly faster.

To quote their website-

"

  Application
  • 1 x PCIe card (see compatibility chart)
  • Supports half-length, full-height and double-width cards
  • PCIe (x16) slot provides a maximum of 25W
  • Does NOT support graphics cards
