External Video Cards

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Wondering if anyone has knowledge regarding external video cards.  I have a laptop where I do 90% of my gaming from.  It does the trick, but after installing the EQ Landmark Beta on it.... it just doesn't cut it anymore for newer games.  I was hoping there's an external video card out there like external hard drives.  My laptop is an HP Pavilion DV6 series.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Cheers,

I built a new PC right before Guild Wars 2 was released and Landmark runs terrible on it. I think it's more of A Landmark optimization issue than computer ability.

 

In response to the intended topic, no clue. :)

So anything less than USB 3 probably won't cut it then?  Also glad to hear I'm not alone with Landmark.  Really that's the only one that had issues, and I checked the system requirements today... which showed I have more than enough. 

 

Thanks guys

The problem with an external card is that it is bottlenecked by the data transfer rate of the USB port it is plugged into. 

 

Yeah, it would need to go through a PCIe bus for it to actually be useful.
