I got an Aorus 1080 Gaming Box (Amazon had them for $699) . Getting it working with Windows 10 & Bootcamp on my MBP 2017 was painless. I simply connected the AGB's TB3 input to the top-left TB3 port on the MBP and DP and HDMI outputs of the AGB to my monitors. I also kept my Kensington TB3 dock connected to the top-right TB3 input on the Mac. 

Win10 & BootCamp: Booted into Windows, downloaded the NVIDIA driver and rebooted again - and was ready to go. I'm using the AGB to play Prey and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

I get the same results on 3D Mark for Timespy @2560 x 1440 as others have gotten: 64xx ~  67xx.

Have you tried headless HDMI?

It becomes slow when entering Fullscreen. Even it shows 60 fps in system but it looks like 20 fps
