Apparently, based on this post here: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2018-15-hp-elitebook-1050-g1gtx1050ti32gbps-tb3aorus-gaming-box-win10-weiwei/ and the referenced link at https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/tps65983b.pdf, it seems that Aorus boxes can only supply 3A over USB-PD, so a maximum of 56W as per USB-PD specs ([email protected]). It apparently cannot jump above 3A physically, hence high end HP laptops complaining about insufficient power.

 

Perhaps someone should update the eGPU.io table to reflect this information? It was a terrible letdown to learn that the "100W" lised there is not true (at least for the 1070 Aorus Box).

Hi,
I have almost exactly the same setup, the only difference is that my HP Zbook 15 G5 is 2in1 X360 version, but the CPU and dGPU are the same.
AORUS box works well in Win pro 10 1809 but when I upgrade to 1903 or 1909 the eGPU is no longer detected.
I tried both fresh install and upgrade. In  1909 Thunderbolt Software detects the egpu device, but the video card is not detected by the system and not visible in the device manager.
Did you make the steps in the first post after a Win upgrade too?

thanks for any advice
