    Is it possible to install an external graphics card in a surface laptop go?


    I have a Surface Laptop Go, model 1943. I’m trying to emulate some old games on it, but the default specs won’t cut it. Is there any way I can get an external graphics card for this model? If so, where do I start?

    :)

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today Scotty

    Actually you can use an external GPU on this device due to thunderbolt 4 / usb-c port

    Now you need to grab the desired eGPU that you want.

    In case you need more info you can check this article*:

    Would it be possible to tell us what graphics chip is installed in your Omen Laptop?

    You can find that information on the second Tab of DXDiag (the "Display" tab).

    Also, what graphics card driver version is installed?

    It might also be, that the game incorrectly tries to launch with the Intel integrated GPU instead of the dedicated gaming graphics chip.

    Try to launch the Nvidia or AMD Catalyst control panel, and add the Game executable to the list of games that require the dedicated graphics chip.

    Also, make sure your Laptop is connected to the charger. Most gaming laptops turn off the dedicated graphics if the laptop is running on battery power, as the dedicated graphics draw A LOT of power. On battery, your Laptop would only run barely an hour,
    if games like Forza were running on it without the charger attached.

    Can i change my display card?

    Hi,

    I don't know the exact specs of the i7 based Surface Pro 4, but either way it's not a gaming type tablet/laptop hybrid. And if you're thinking about MSF2020, forget it, your device isn't good enough.

    Surface Pro 4 can not be upgraded. It doesn't have a dedicated graphics display card anyway. The graphics on these are part of the CPU which would mean an Intel HD 520 or Intel Iris 540. They're not meant for high end games.

    Sorry.

    游玩Gears5时程序崩溃 [Translate] Program crashes when playing Gear5

    I'm sorry my English is terrible. I'll try my best to convey my meaning to you.

    I installed it on disk E,But my other laptop is also installed on non-system discs.

    That laptop is Win10 Home,Not join the windows insider program.

    Capable of running the game.The graphics card is GTX1060(436.30).

    The graphics card of this computer that can't run GEARS5 is RTX2080TI(436.30).

    So. Any other suggestions?

    Thank you very much for your reply.
