    Could this work on the i9? I have seen many do it on bad laptops with great results using mini PCI-E.

    So i wondered if this could be possible on the i9 seeing has it has that extra m2?

    Here is a guy who has done it on his Intel NUC. http://imgur.com/a/JHoIy

    And here is a link to a m2 to PCI-E x4 http://www.hwtools.net/Adapter/PE4C%20V4.1.html

    If someone were to try this, please let me know 🙂

    Don’t think it would work and really that’s not practical in a tablet. I think it only supports M.2 LTE modems. I tried an SSD, and the FORSEE 120GB SSD and no luck.

    Cube i9 second M.2 slot

    Chris: The reason the SSD didn’t work is likely because SATA is not exposed through that other port.

    I don’t think Cube would bother to block PCIe cards other than LTE modems, but since the modem is a low-bandwidth device, it’d be interesting to see if they routed all four lanes.

    For my part if something like this would work i would cut a rectangular hole in the back of the tablet for a more quick connect possibility. It wouldnt look to bad either seeing as the hole would be behind the kickstand?

    if the USB-C on the tablet were supported by thunderbolt 3 then that off course would be the best option for eGPU.

    Welcome Rawie!!

    The IPX connector is always on the 3g/LTE modem.
    I found a modem on amazon without sim slot.
    You can clearly see the IPX connector on the modem in the amazon pictures.

    Currently the LTE Modems are pretty expensive.

    The antenna should be in the top plastic part.

    The metal housing will act like a faraday cage and block a lot of the signal.
    When I get my cube I will take a look if there is enough place!

    Well, since the Type c port has the option to turn thunderbolt on in the bios. And the type c is a 3.1 connection.

    Does that make it a thunderbolt 3 connection.

     

    (Kind of new to technology so sorry for the dumb question)
