So, I have a 2018 Mac Mini (i7-8700B 3.2 GHz 6 core) with a eGPU (AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT). 
I got it working on Mac. Runs games just fine, runs valley benchmark fine. 
windows however, it is utter garbage. 
I’ve tried all obvious solutions, any clues or questions?

How can people help you if you don’t talk about the symptoms?

so you just go to the doctor’s and say I feel like crap, heal me?

Sorry.

  1. Low frames on all settings in all games 
  2. on valley benchmark it’s looks like it’s capping at 29 frames
  3. gpu doesn’t sound like it’s really turning on at all
  4. R6 benchmark ran at 70-110 before and when now it runs 25-30.

Well  it looks like it's not using the eGPU. Can you see it in Device Manager?  Did u installed the drivers?

FIXED!!!!!

plugged that bad boy into a DisplayPort instead of HDMI and it’s working WAY better.
