Specs: Dell XPS 15 9560
1080p HD display
eGPU & Monitor
AORUS RTX 2070 Gaming Box
Dell S2716DG 1440p via DisplayPort.
Existing Windows 10 Pro install.
After first connecting the eGPU there were many black screens with lots of 'new device' sounds from Windows. Eventually I had to restart and had a minor issue where I had to remove the TB connection and reconnect it when back in Windows. After that everything seemed to be working correct.
Have newest Nvidia drivers downloaded and ready. I was using Driver version 126.96.36.19987 for all testing and installed it after the eGPU.
Also the NVidia drivers can handle the dGPU and eGPU but to rule out any issues I disabled the dGPU in Device manager and rebooted.
- All benchmarks are performed on external display (2560 x 1440).
- Using the Nvidia Geforce Driver version 188.8.131.5287.
- eGPU RTX 2070 is not altered from default settings and using Firmware 1.0 as USB hub was also utilized.
