Got my Egpu working on bootcamp.
razer core x chroma + rx 5700 xr + macbook pro 2019 13"

Everything works fine but I only gave the partition 200 GB
Anyone know how to run games through an SSD so I dont waste hard drive space?
Looking for an SSD reccomendation and guide PLZ

Thank you

For Boot Camp, you want to use a USB drive instead of Thunderbolt. The fastest USB drives use NVMe. The NVMe drive only needs to support 1000 MB/s because that's the max speed of USB 3.1 gen 2.

There are 3 main chipsets in the market: JMicron JMS583, Asmedia ASM2362, and Realtek RTL9210. The USB enclosures are inexpensive (especially compared to Thunderbolt). The Plugable USBC-NVME and Orico use the JMicron (I have both and they both perform well). The other chips might be newer/more efficient?

An example high capacity low price NVMe is the Intel 660p.

Game installers usually let you choose where to install them so that shouldn't be a problem.

@joevt, Thank you so much bro! So I would need the thunderbolt to usb 3.0 converter and plug it directly to my macbook right? Because My razer core X is currently occupying all USB Ports.

@sudeepstacks, plug it wherever you like. The USB NVMe enclosures come with USB-C and USB-A cables so they will work with any USB port (that has enough power).
