Hello forum, I thought I’d share my eGPU benchmarks and thoughts on my current setup. I’ve been doing eGPU setups for a year now. Everything was plug-in-play with the Akitio Node. I did the firmware update as soon as I received it. MSI After Burner software was causing my Thunderbolt software to crash so I had to disable MSI After Burner. I lose fan control and in-game temperature monitoring, but its not a big deal to me. I use Razer GPU Switcher application which works just fine with the Node as it did with the Razer Core when I had it. I will complete any benchmark requests for you, cheers.

Current Setup:

Razer Blade 2017 (v6) i7-7700HQ w/ GTX 1080 Ti EVGA SC Black Edition (Via Akitio Node)

Fire Strike 14568 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/12950505

Past setups:

Razer Blade 2017 (v6) i7-7700HQ w/ GTX 1080 EVGA SC ACX 3.0 (Via Akitio Node)

Fire Strike 13410 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/12588995

Time Spy 3634 http://www.3dmark.com/spy/1717988

Razer Blade 2016 (v4) 12166 i7-6700HQ w/ GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6G (Via Razer Core)

Thank you for sharing your setup and benchmarks. What’s your impression of the performance difference between the GTX 1060 dGPU vs. GTX 1080 Ti eGPU?

I’d compare it to the dGPU playing games 1080p at high graphics settings while the eGPU playing games 1440p at ultra, both maintaining same frame rate. This seems to be the case with Rainbow 6 Siege and Deus Ex Mankind Divided games for example.

What made you switch from the Razer Core to the Akitio Node?
