I recently received a company supplied laptop to use for editing. I am moving off an old Macbook Pro with only 8 GB of RAM. This PC is windows 10 enterprise, i7, with 32 GB of RAM. I installed CC without a problem. Premiere is running great EXCEPT I can not export a sequence. Premiere does not like my internal graphics card. I spent an hour with an Adobe tech and he confirmed this. I can export via software but it is so slow it is not a viable option for me. He suggested I get an external graphics card. I don't know anything about this. I only have USB 2 and 3 ports on this PC. Is this an option for me and can you suggest a card that will work for me?

I am extremely disappointed to tell you this, but you cannot install an external GPU at all in your laptop. All eGPUs absolutely require Thunderbolt to even work at all, and that none of the common USB ports support graphics processors at all.

That was exactly what happened far too frequently with corporate laptops: Either the corporation which administered the system completely blocked out all driver updates, or the laptop itself was made of old-generation parts that are no longer supported any more by their makers.
