I downloaded the whole DaVinci Resolve v16.0 1.5GB almost and found that bandwidthtest.exe could be used seperately and it is only 200KB.

So can you post the bandwidthtest tool in this post? Or could it cause some legal issues?

To prevent copyright infringement, bandwidthtest.exe isn't being isolated and linked. So to replicate my testing, please download the free Da Vinci Resolve package to access their bandwidthtest.exe.

@nando4, How did you manage to deal with the cable? Did you leave the laptop without its cover?

@joaquin_lobos, the bottom cover was off to allow access to the M.2 slot.

When wanting to go mobile, the ADT-Link R43SG was unplugged and laptop bottom covers reinstalled.  An access cutout to the M.2 slot would make it faster to do.

Hi i want to try this on my new Dell Precission 7710 with 6820hq i7, 32GB, ssd sata 3, quadro M3000M.
I have to do the same steps?
I want to use M.2 M PCI-E Version PCIe PCI-E V9.5 EXP GDC Laptop Docking Station,
It will be good?

and as GPU 980Ti
I will buy a 1080Ti later but as i remember form past 2 years 10th and 20th generation doesn't work so good with eGPU on laptops. Is still the same or now the drivers and "error 43" better?

Thank you.

@hunter4uro , error 43 is addressed in the opening post. The Buyer Guide compares M.2 eGPU adapters and I used the recommended ADT-Link R43SG in this build.

Hey @nando4 , I'm relatively new to building computers here so pardon my ignorance. I'm currently trying to set up an eGPU with Nvidia Quadro RTX4000 for engineering purposes, coupled with a laptop that has a basic geforce card for light gaming. I am quite against the idea of an underside cabling to the internal M.2 port as that ruins the warranty of the laptop, so I'm going to try to opt for the thunderbolt option instead. I'd go with the former if I'm unable to find a laptop with thunderbolt and 32gb RAM under 1100USD.

I am quite unsure of how to go about this. Considering eGPU enclosures are extremely overpriced, I've decided to 3D print mine. I've seen your guide but I'm still unsure- how do I connect the thunderbolt cable to the eGPU port? Is there some sort of adaptor?

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello guys, first of all I would like to say that's great to see a comunity involved on eGPU with so many ppl helping each other. You all rock!

I have an notebook Dell G3 with an i7 9750h processor and a dGPU GTX1660ti max-q. Its a nice dGPU and run almost all games in high/ultra in my notebook screen (it's a pretty decent graphic card for 1080p). 

The thing is that I'm also using this notebook for VR gaming and that's way gpu demanding. So I was wondering about a possibility to upgrade my performance with an eGPU.

So I was thinking in using an RTX2070 Super with adt-link sacrifying my m.2 NVMe slot to do so (then I would replace my HD to an SSD Sata III).

I need the mobility so I was wondering if there's a somewhat plug'n'play solution for it, using eGPU like and dockstation for more demanding stuff and my dGPU when I'm on the road. 

For what I've been researching I could use an m.2 adaptor/extensor (and that would be important to keep m.2 slot safe if something goes wrong), that really can keep my m.2 slot safe? Could I just unplug the eGPU when I'm not using it (powered off of course) or should I remove battery everytime I need to move the notebook (don't want/can't carry the eGPU always with it).

What about the performance? Will there be some loss even using an m.2 NVMe connection? Could it be RTX 30xx compatible in the future without significant loss?

If you can help me with this questions that would be great.

3. Unoptimized BIOS on non-Mac "H" 8th/9th gen CPU systems leading to a further 15% performance degradation. M.2 eGPUs are also affected. A system BIOS type patch is required as a fix. 

Hi nando4!

Do you know if 10th gen "h" processors are doing better in this regard?!

Thy!

@phila-delphia , consider running Forza 4 on your H system + eGPU, the compare against running it on a high-end U system + eGPU and compare FPS results to get your answer.
