How can I run my PC without a GPU *Urgent Help Needed*

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello LTT Forums


I will be selling my GPU tomorrow hopefully and I have bought “USB 3.0 to HDMI” will I be able to use my PC via that?
Please help me here[USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter](https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08BRJ5KD1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ydNCFbDBZX8MM) is the product I bought


CPU - i9-9900K
I believe it does has integrated graphics, i just need to use my PC be able to use MS Word, Google Chrome etc. 

My motherboard DOES NOT have any HDMI or VGA port it only has Optical, USB 3.0/C, Ethernet and Audio Port. 


Please do give suggestion to run without a GPU with no HDMI or VGA ports on your motherboard. 

 

**Need answers within 12-14 hours** (Approximate time my gpu will be ready to deliver)

 

Thank you, one of the smartest community out there :)

Yes, the i9-9900K DOES have Integrated graphics (e.g. an iGPU), so you can use that instead of a GPU.

 

What motherboard do you have?

There are only a few select boards to DON'T have any output ports.

Even my Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master does...

Only the "F" Intel SKUs don't have integrated graphics. However, you must have a motherboard that supports that which would mean that it would have built-in video out ports. If it doesn't, then there's no way to use the integrated graphics.

I suggest waiting 12 to 24 hours to use your PC, surely it isn't that long a wait

 

USB to HDMI adapters only work when you've got windows up and running, because they need software and drivers to create a video signal. you don't have a friend that will lend a GPU for a day?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oof, that's rough.

 

Since when is this the case? IIRC during the Skylake era every single mobo supported it.

It's always been the case. The indication that the mobo supports it is the presence of video out on the board. Most do have video out, even on AMD boards which have relatively few CPUs SKUs that actually do have iGPUs (versus Intel, where virtually all have an iGPU). However, if the board doesn't have any video out, then there's no way you can utilize the integrated graphics.
