System specs:

2019 16" MacBook Pro, i7-9750H/iGPU  Intel UHD 630/dGPU Radeon Pro 5300M/16GB DDR4/512Gb SSD

OS Win 10 20H2 and Bootcamp (standard, without any modifications)


eGPU hardware:

ADT-Link R43SG + Wavlink WL-UTE02 NVMe M.2-TB3 + ATX PSU BeQuiet S9-700W / GTX 1060 3G / 50cm Thunderbolt 3 cable (goes with WavLink SSD NVMe M.2 adapter) 


Hardware pictures:


Installation steps:

I Unplug you PSU from electric outlet 

II Connect all together

PSU + WavLink + ADT-Link


III Plug GPU card into PCIe slot of ADT-Link and screw it on


IV Plug usb-tb3 connector from WavLink to laptop

PSU is still turned off at that time


V Disable discrete GPU adapter in Windows device manager

Press Win+X on keyboard and click Device Manager from the menu or click on Start button and type devmgmt.msc

In device manager find Display adapters "folder", unfold it

Find you display adapter name there, right click on it and select "Disable device" from the menu


VI Download NVidia display drivers from Nvidia website and install it

Find one that suits your GPU


VII Turn PSU on and reboot laptop

That will bring the GPU to life

If rebooting process goes too long (more than 5 minutes): turn off the PSU, reboot laptop, turn on PSU and reboot again

The sign, one of them, that external Nvidia GPU is recognized and configured correctly is the blue cold tint of your display on Windows


VIII The GPU is set




It just works fine. 



It's worth spending you time and some money on it
