Hello!! I got a HP spectre 360 for Christmas, that has a  Nvidia PhysX  GeForce gtx 1650. Which is great for a non gaming laptop. However I bought my laptop because it was an Ultrabook that was capable of gaming. But for some reason im only getting 60 fps in valorant ( but I'm not sure if that's good or bad!! But it lags so badly)  Besides since I'm a student going off to college in the next year, I didn't think it was wise to buy a $1000 gaming pc. So i was considering buying a egpu, the only thing is im not sure which graphics card to buy!! I know I definitely can't buy a gpu over $200. and i thought about buying the same gpu just externally  but I worried that performance will be the same.

Well, a desktop version should be better. Because of the nature of laptops, with everything crammed into a tiny chassis and running off a battery, thermals and power must be constrained. The mobile version of the GPU is underclocked and undervolted, compared to it's desktop brother. As such, it will definitely have more performance unconstrained, but whether it will be significant is a different story. Personally, I'd try for at least a 1660 super. That would give you a noticeable bump, and would actually enable 1080p on high or maybe even ultra at a solid 60+ FPS.

 

Bear in mind though, that as far as I'm aware, eGPU requires Thunderbolt. It maybe be possible over vanilla USB, now, but I haven't kept up with it enough to say for sure. Regardless, you should verify that it's actually supported. Just because you have a type C port, doesn't necessarily mean you can use an eGPU with it.

It was right there. Use afterburner or hwmonitor. They're both apps you'd have to download and install.
