About

A lot of people need the mobility of a laptop but also want the graphic performance of a gaming pc. The idea of the Lenovos ultra bay concept is great. Unfortunately Lenovo has stopped the development on ultrabay devices. The idea of this project is an adapter from ultra bay to PCIe x16 to connect standard PCIe cards to the laptop. This enables each user to choose the card which fulfills his own requirements in performance.

Project schedule:
The prototype is in the redesign phase. The first PCB is working with a few drawbacks. The 2nd prototype is under development and first official samples should be available in june 2016.

Adapter

 Y510P with a AMD Radeon R9 Nano. A ATX PSU must be connected to the adapter because of the high power requirements of such an desktop graphics card.

Risks and challenges

The first prototype is working in a limited way. Only one PCIe lane is working but prototype 2 supports all 8 lanes. Mode: PCIe x8.
