I guess it won't be compatible, it seems to be ThunderBolt 3- technology used for the eGPU. G75VX has Thunderbolt 1 or 2.
Thunderbolt is the brand name of a hardware interface that allows the connection of external peripherals to a computer. Thunderbolt 1 and 2 use the same connector as Mini DisplayPort (MDP), while Thunderbolt 3 uses USB Type-C.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'd love to have an external GPU for my G75VX too :)

But there is any adapter for USB Type - C?
Maybe with an adapter we can use this xg station!

A USB C adapter will not provide access to the native PCI-E connection this hardware will require. You will need the proper internal wiring for this to work sadly.

So im stuck with my old laptop, without any chance to improve the graphic card??
Thats really bad!
In the future i will look for some upgradeable laptop, like Clevo!
