Does the Lenovo Yoga 720 15-IKB support an eGPU?

I have a Lenovo Yoga 720 15-IKB, the model WITHOUT the GTX 1050 graphics card. I would like to know if it supports an eGPU e.g the Akitio Node thunderbolt 3 eGPU.

Thank you

    most laptops don't support eGPU because they're not designed for gamers. Same story with the Yoga 720 - it's a work/luxury machine - even if it had TB3, the BIOS wouldn't recognize or pick up the eGPU.

    With the USB 3.1 to Thunderbolt 3 connector, you should be able to use these together - make sure that you use the USB 3.1 port though as it'll work substantially better than the USB 3.0 connectors!
