eGPU support on this machine?

So it occurs to me (at least from what I have read and understand, which might be all wrong) that my HP Pavilion Wave 600 (https://support.hp.com/au-en/product/hp-pavilion-wave-600-a000-desktop-pc-series/12079672/document/c05333324/) Has USB 3.0 Type C, which is one of the requirements for an eGPU enclosure?

 

Correct me if I am wrong there.

I also have a GTX 660, so if I am right above, I would just need the enclosure. 

Can you guys make a suggestion for one? I would not be gaming on this, but rather Machine Learning under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

 

Thanks for your help

You need to have thunderbolt for eGPUs, it looks the same as USB-C but is actually different. An external GPU won't work on that computer, it's not very often to find thunderbolt on desktops that aren't Apple, they're usually on laptops.

It doesn't appear to have thunderbolt, and thats the requirement, not usb c.

 

I wouldn't bother with a 660, esp seeing the price of the enclosures.

 

I think that pc has a mxm card, but you wll have to take it apart to check. That probalby the easiest way to add a gpu, but not gonna be super easy.

 

You can probably also do a external gpu via the m-pcie slot.

mxm card,

It does, there was an option for an AMD Radeon...something, there. I had assumed that was a special item and only that one model was available, interesting to see there are other options, any experience with one?

 

Nevermind, I should have known HP wouldn't use standard interfaces. It looks like MXM, but it's too small, so a standard one wouldn't fit.

You're better off with google Colab rather than messing with that thing.

MXM is a standard, but kinda dying. Take it apart and see if you havae the slot, and the heatsink. The heatsink might be hard to get. 

 

What programs are you using for ml? The cpu should get you started for learning.

I've used CharRNN before and yes the CPU works, but the GPU works *much* better.

The slot is about 1/4 the size of a standard MXM slot, so the standard cards are out. No matter, thought this might be a cheap way to get back into ML.

can you show a pic of the slot?

 

You can use the mpcie to egpu adapters, but not really a clean setup.

You can probably still put a egpu in those.

Not sure if it work work in that slot, but check the slot.

 

Also your limited to a x1 link, so that might limit you.
