Hi Folks, I have lenovo flex 3, which has core i 7 6500 u, I am trying to find good gpu for my external setup, with with processor can someone suggest good GPU? so I don't hit max bottle nexk but some is okay.

I checked on bottleneck checker, but it gives huge list in downgrade list of GPU options. Can someone suggest which would be good? considering I want to get at least 50-70 fps on medium settings on lets say GTA V or other.

Thanks!

That's not happening with USB 3.0. You'll want a Thunderbolt 3 port for that.

I saw it is possible with external pcie connector.

That doesn't appear to have thunderbolt. Even with a high speed thunderbolt connection, I've heard an eGPU on laptops can be janky.

You're not going to be able to plug in a GPU to that laptop. You would be looking at building a PC.

Don’t listen to bottleneck calculators. They are pseudo science. Utterly ignore them!
