No. Chances are very slim that your laptop has a 10 gigabit ethernet adaptor - its uncommon on high end desktops. You'd also need some clever hardware to translate between PCI-e to ethernet, and the latency, oh the latency. You have a device which is typically put as close to the processor as possible with 16 dedicated pci-e lanes right into it, and you'd ...

There's a few. Firstly, nearly every modern single mainstream1 processor has a integrated on die GPU. The chipset supports it. Essentially your only cost is the traces and connectors, so it's a 'free' feature you can design in - unlike older designs. Interestingly, many of the Sandy and Ivy Bridge-era Intel chipsets outside the Z series made you pick one or ...

Connecting a GPU by Ethernet is like connecting your PS3 controller to the PS/2 keyboard port: sounds like it's trying to fix a problem but the solution turns out to be completely outlandish and impractical. (Granted, if you can pull it off, you'll gain more popularity as that one crazy guy.) That said, I advise you not to try to do this because the ...

There are few wrong assumptions and they led you to wrong conclusions: Many motherboards marketed as "gaming" has an integrated Intel graphic cards. The graphic card is on CPU. Intel made this decision, not motherboard maker. When buying Intel, GPU cannot be avoided. I understand that putting in an integrated graphics into a motherboard ...

Probably not at commodity pricing for another few years. The current offerings are all high-end, using 10/40 Gbps connections and Nvidia Tesla cards. Even then, it's not directly usable for gaming or graphics, but more for CUDA processing. e.g. http://www.chelsio.com/gpudirect-rdma/

Not with ethernet, but with PCIe and Thunderbolt. This article breaks down the external GPU (eGPU) landscape well. A number of companies sell PCIe/Thunderbolt enclosures. Some are limited by Thunderbolt's power, some have their own power. MSI GUS II using Thunderbolt and limited to 150W. Akitio Thunder2 PCIe Box using Thunderbolt 2, but only provides 25W. ...

With a bit of reasoning and the help of some users in the comment section of my question I quickly came to the conclusion that my ghraphics card just died of old age. Installed in March 2011, it lasted around 5 years, and that's no surprise since that I used to use it quite a lot to play computer games etc. The red lines and random colored pixels make me ...

Could you please explain what it can be used for (I'm guessing the intentional use, but any other possible uses too) given that for a gaming PC one is most likely to utilize an external GPU? There are two uses I can think of for integrated video in enthusiast hardware: It can drive an additional monitor. Have one or two monitors driven by the ...

The closest you can come to what you want is, if you're gaming via Steam, to use the in home streaming option to use your network to route the display from the a gaming desktop to your laptop and user input from the laptop to the desktop running the game. This would require a full desktop somewhere in your home instead of just a laptop + external GPU; but ...

Not by Ethernet, but PC Mag ran a story last Sept on using a gaming card with a laptop connected via PCIe adapter card, Express Card, or Thunderbolt for Macbooks. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2984716/laptop-computers/how-to-transform-your-laptop-into-a-gaming-powerhouse-with-an-external-graphics-card.html The author uses a 2011 Thinkpad and under $200 ...

If you have no technical skills, then the easiest way to break this down is simply: does your graphics card have an Ethernet port? The next question being "Can I get an adapter to make it so?" As far as I know, there is no adapter capable of adding an Ethernet port to a graphics card. If you simply want to beef up your laptop with an external graphics ...

Having tested a Motherboard powered GT 730, and confirming that it works, I connected a meter to my PSU. It was indeed not providing sufficient power. Replaced it under warranty, and everything is now working.

I believe VirtualGL might help you with this - it allows you to run the graphically-intensive program on device and view the results on another.

It is not clear what you intend to use as primary device. The Laptop? or would an adapter that connects the devices also be acepted? In the latter case the Steam Link device would exactly do this (transfering GPU rendered data over ethernet and just provides them to an outputmedium.)

I have a u2713hm and had the same problem. I am using a DVI-D cable but it was a cheap one so have ordered something more premium, i'll try that when it arrives. In the meantime I managed to get a decent picture by going into the Nvidia control panel > change resolution > customise and dropped the refresh rate 1Hz at a time and testing the new setting. ...

Your computer's glitchy performance is characteristic of video RAM artifacts. If the RAM in your graphics processor is failing, sometimes just a small fraction of the RAM goes bad while the rest of the RAM continues to work properly. This results in the part of the operating system that was being stored in that RAM malfunctioning. Sometimes as a result of ...

All Intel HD Graphics are integrated, meaning they reside on the CPU chip instead of a separate card. If you have a dedicated card, like the GT 650M, then the computer will always default to that and you should be OK.

According to you Notebook model specs, you graphics card is AMD R7 M270 The issues is you are manipulating by your own the graphics settings First, delete all what you modified by using AMD's special software. Download and run AMD CleanUp Utility to erase all trace of AMD/ATI drivers/Software. Then Download and install Lastest Stable AMD's Driver

DVI-VGA converter might be bad or cables not 100% properly connected into it (look for bent pins). Try replacing it. This is likely the issue. Make sure your graphics card is securely plugged in and set properly in the case. Try switching cables. Try connecting to an alternate monitor. Try moving graphics card to another x16 slot of your motherboard has ...

I fixed the issue in a very bizarre and unintentional way. I tried to install the proprietary nvidia drivers by following this tutorial and performing dnf install akmod-nvidia "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)". I'm not sure if I installed the wrong drivers, or if it conflicted with nouveau, but it resulted in an error message upon reboot. I had to ...

If you keep it cool, it will be fine. (Same goes for a non-OCed version) And yes, you can underclock it if you wish. You can use EVGA Precision X16, or MSI Afterburner to monitor the temps.

TL;DR New power supply solved the problem. So the problem is solved. Problems in my PC subsided over two or more days and everything works just fine. In the meantime, my uncle's power supply burned out and after installing a new one, it is all fine. There was a driver update in this time too, but we tried to test it with older drivers and it does not behave ...

This happens when you get excessive use of GPU such as you opened more videos program, movies, and games. So this is normal. The display driver stopped responding and has recovered is is mainly happened above Windows Vista. There are several reasons: Your graphic card driver is outdated, it remind you to update the graphic driver. You opened more videos ...

If you can't install the latest driver, you can install the Intel Driver Update Utility that will attempt to detect and download the best driver available. Also, you can install the official driver from Acer support page for your laptop. This isn't the best thing to do, because these drivers are older versions that might have incompatibilities with some ...

Mostly, this error is caused by GPU heat, Windows shuts down (block) the GPU to prevent it from heat damages. So, cooling the GPU and lowering some NVIDIA settings could fix this issue. For the settings matter, you can follow the following instructions : Setting up your Nvidia settings: Open Nvidia Control Panel and go to Manage 3D Settings Click on ...
