Graphics Card

Tue Sep 05, 2017 7:54 am

Hi all
I was wondering if it would be at all possible to add this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Install ... .26.peO3vd. to the pi.

Thanks all

No idea. It seems to be a USB 3.0 PCI extender? Well, the Pi is USB 2.0, but it should be backwards compatible. No idea about driver software for it. Google might find something.

.aliexpress sometimes drops to Italian / Russian for weird reasons , you can force it back to English ...

Agreed.
It looks like a reuse of a USB3 type A to type A lead as it happens to have right pairs to carry the one clock and two data pairs of PCI-Ex1 and presents it as a PCI-Ex16 socket. Power is applied externally, so they've probably repurposed the power lines for other purposes too.

Basically no, it extends a PCI-E socket, and the Pi doesn't have one of those.
