2018 15" HP EliteBook 1050 G1 (GTX1050) [8th,6C,H] + RTX 2060 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (AORUS Gaming Box) + Win10 [wei lu]
- Model: HP Elitebook 1050 G1
- TB: JHL7540
- Display: 1080P 60Hz
- Internal GPU: Intel UHD 630
- Discrete GPU: GTX1050 Max-Q (I disabled it through the BIOS setup)
- CPU: i7-8750H
- OS: Windows 10 1903
- Enclosure: Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Box
- GPU: Gigabyte RTX2060 Mini ITX OC
- Cable: Gaming Box's original accessories
- Power Supply: Gaming Box's internal PSU
- I occasionally need to take my notebook outdoors to work. I like the combination of a notebook and an external GPU.
- If this computer is running 8750H and GTX1050 at the same time, the pressure of heat dissipation is very high.
- This video card uses an 8pin power connector and still does not require special settings.
- As everyone knows, Gaming Box is a bit picky on the video card, so I hope this topic can help you.

When you update the H2D firmware
about "error while getting the PD firmware version".
The firmware update software version provided by GIGABYTE is too old, and JHL7540 can't use too old Thunderbolt driver(ver 16).
So you can get a new version of the firmware update software from the intel.com, and replace it with the firmware of the gaming box.
Update to WIN10 1903
I got into trouble after upgrading to 1903, Thunderbolt equipment cannot be activated even if the driver is installed.
I modified the hot plug mode（ Thunderbolt PCIe Hot Plug ） of Thunderbolt to modify the ‘Legacy Mode’ to ‘Native + Lower Power Mode’.
Then it resumes normal operation.
Hi, I'm now considering options of my old MacBook update. There's a good deal on EliteBook 1050 G1 so I'm wondering how will it work with my Aorus Gaming Box Rx 580 and whether this laptop is future-proof for next egpu update. Would be happy to hear your opinion.
