Hi Smile

 

after many struggling and errors on my MBP 2018 finally on MBP 2019 with the newest win10 update everything works flawlessly on the internal monitor (also no need for combined displays ..)  Smile

egpu enclosure is  asus xg station pro inside with a nvidia 1080

so the procedure is really simple Smile no need for quick plug on boot or some other magic. on fully booted up windows10 just plug the powered on egpu to TB3 thats all.

Ati drivers are the latest blue ones from bootcampdrivers. the 2 gpus are working side by side no need to disabe anything... 

and the images Smile

Hey there, just curious, what kind of benchmark / performance ratings are you getting on the internal monitor? I've got a similar setup but I feel like mine are a bit lower than what they should be

@sebagsm,  not clear if you applied or not the Win 10 beta FAST Insider update. If not, I believe there is a firmware related port mapping in older machines.

@majortom67,  Nope its not insider update. as you can see on the image of winver. 

 

@ButtrMyToast I will run few benchmarks for you. also I changed the default tb3 cable to AKiTiO Thunderbolt 3 cable.

I never had trouble with a GTX 1080 either. It just worked. Once I switched to an AMD RX5700 XT now that is when the problems began!
