Comments

I was skeptical about the setup because I couldn't find any real case. So I brought a used Razer Core X to reduce my risk of possible financial loss. Everything seems really smooth so far. When training the Convolutional Neural Network model, the fans of the Titan RTX were running in their full capacity. However, surprisingly, they are not as aloud as I expected 🙂

Thank you for your comments. 

I have been benefited a lot from this website before I built up my eGPU. Hopefully, my brief guide can help clear up some doubts of building a portable ML with Titan RTX 🙂

I would love to share more if I can get the Titan RTX to work on the macOS.
