Aorus Gaming Box with custom install of Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER on 2018 Mac Mini in Windows 10 (Bootcamp)
Purchased an empty Aorus Gaming Box on eBay that previously held a GTX 1070, and fitted it with a Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER 6GB OC (ITX). No issues with power - the 1660 also uses 8 pin and both components being Gigabyte products there was no issue with the card powering up.
Applied the H2D update and getting a very nice 2200 / 2700 MiB/s. First thing I did was play F-Zero GX on Dolphin at 60 fps in 4k!
Currently having to hotplug during Windows startup, but will make myself an EIF partition on a USB stick. Only downside I have seen is that Aorus Engine software recognises this as an Nvidia card as opposed to a Gaming Box, and therefore cannot change the LEDs, but I can live with that!
Thanks! Pretty happy with the setup.
Great tip for RGB Fusion 2.0. That worked well. Now have everything a matching cool blue.
One thing I haven't figured out yet, I'm almost matching 1660 SUPER benchmarks for an internal GPU, but only when connecting to my display via HDMI from the Mac Mini. If I connect via HDMI from the ePGU itself, the performance actually drops. I wonder if its the high 2700 MiB/s number for Device to Host that actually makes it faster that way.
