During the Holiday season I was thinking of getting an eGPU for my laptop as the inbuilt gpu isn't that good for games. I found a razer core v1 with a gtx 1070ti for about $300 and I was wondering if these would be compatible? To my knowledge the thunderbolt ports on this laptop are already wired up with the laptops dGPU hence why I was unsure

You'll probably end up having to disable the quadro and run off the external GPU to get rid of code 12s in device manager. It sounds like a massive PITA but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
