Installation steps:
1.) Plug in TB3 cable
2.) Install Nvidia drivers
3.) Done

 

Benchmarks:

In comparison between my desktop (i7-8700k, 32GB RAM, 1TB Samsung 970 Pro, same GPU ..) it is a ~30% loss in graphics performance.

Comments:
Had some problems at first with stuttering. Changed the "Battery Profile" from "Save Energy" to "Performance".
Also the fan isn't the best in the Razer Core X. Will change it for a better 120mm fan. (BeQuiet or Noctua)
Otherwise love this setup!

As you can see in my build we have almost identical cuda-z, but your ungine heaven benchmark is having 500 more points than mine:

13 15 15

because yeah, 1080 ti is more powerful.
Anyway would you mind run the aida64 graphic test and also show me the aida64 temperature and fan speed while benchmarking?
