The Acer Aspire V5-471G is a relatively older laptop model, and it may not natively support external graphics card (eGPU) connections. To attach an eGPU to your laptop, you'll typically need to have a laptop with a Thunderbolt 3 (or later) port or an ExpressCard slot. If your laptop doesn't have one of these ports, it might be challenging to use an eGPU with it.
- You will need an external GPU enclosure (eGPU dock) that connects to your laptop's compatible port.
- You'll also need a compatible graphics card to install inside the eGPU enclosure.
- Connect the eGPU dock to your laptop using the appropriate cable (Thunderbolt 3 or ExpressCard, for example).
- Connect the eGPU dock to your laptop using the appropriate cable and updater the graphic card driver.
- You may need to configure which applications use the eGPU.
Setting up an eGPU can be a complex and often frustrating process, and not all laptops are suitable for it.
