I have a VAIO E Series (SVE14122CVB) that I wanted to upgrade, and I was planning to install a GTX750Ti with an eGPU adapter. I read the things I would need to run the GPU with, however I was wondering if a 2016 GTX750Ti would run with an Ivy Bridge Core i3-3110M. I can't find any compatibility sheet because it's a "mobile" processor.

Will the card run with atleast half of it's potential power? Or it'll be a bottleneck with the CPU and MB?

Hello Farie977,

 

I was planning to install a GTX750Ti with an eGPU adapter. 

 

I was wondering if a 2016 GTX750Ti would run with an Ivy Bridge Core i3-3110M. I can't find any compatibility sheet because it's a "mobile" processor.

 

 

Any eGPU that you may potentially purchase should provide compatibility information, if they don`t then I would be suspicious of the products quality/reliability and customer care should you have any issues with the device, example of the information and customer support that you should expect here the following review can be found on page 6 top of the page at the time that I wrote this;

 

Pros:
Great adapter, runs fine with a gtx 960 and mini pc with intel core i3 processor, improves the graphical performance in 800%

Cons:
None

 

 

 

Will the card run with at least half of it's potential power? Or it'll be a bottleneck with the CPU and MB? 

 

 

The example device at my link is shown to run fine with i3 CPUs slower than yours but for max performance 1600MHz RAM would be best and preferably you having 8GB of it, please note that I am not saying that the device at my link is compatible with your computer, the seller of the product should be asked to confirm this via email should anyone reading this consider purchasing the device.
