nvme adapter for PBP
#1
Is this nvme adapter, that can be ordered with the PBP, a special adapter for the PBP, or can I just order any nvme adapter?

What would you do with the nvme interface. I am curious what you would do with it, besides from installing an SSD...

Waiting to get my coupon...

An external GPU dock would be awesome sauce. You probably still need their fancy adapter with the carefully bent ribbon cable though.

Keep in mind it's only 4x though, so the GPU would severely underperform to its full potential.

The screen is 60Hz so I don't need more than 60FPS anyways or the tearing will be horrendous.

I'll probably connect a Crucial 1TB M.2 2280 3D NAND NVMe SSD to mine though... street price at Newegg and Amazon is $99.

It has to be NVME PCIE, not SSD.

GPU will not work on PBPro due to 32MB DMA buffer available.

Quantify "severely". I've been running laptop with eGPU via EXP GDC connected to M.2 slot, gaming was very comfortable.

And, from my reading, it's PCIe 2.1, meaning only 5Gbps per lane, (which includes high encoding overhead, not the lower overhead of PCIe 3.x).
That's perfectly fine & usable for a 4 lane NVME SSD. But, video?

Of course I could be wrong about the PCIe 2.1. (I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong :-). Here is the reference;

What do you mean?  It's not a SATA SSD:

Will that not work?

Yes, that should work fine.

Thanks for the link, looks like a fine device and great price. When I bought an 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD for my old laptop back in 2014, it cost $500 if I remember correctly. More than the cheap laptop it was going to installed in.

Edit: It should work fine as it's NVME, not SATA. However, we have been discussing power usage in another thread. So from a power perspective, it is unknown if the Crucial devices will work reliably.
