Compared to my previous computer with a 6th generation i7, the new 9th generation i9 processor really allows the 2080 super to shine. I've had a great experience playing CPU heavy games such as Boneworks, which my previous device could not handle.
@khaliq, Thank you for sharing this excellent build! I see you like the first model year of a new product line :-D. Most of the time you end up with something like the 2016 15-in MacBook Pro which takes a tremendous effort to set up an eGPU. The 2019 16-in MacBook Pro has so far been a much better product.
@itsage, Yeah I guess I like shiny new things, even if it’s to my detriment! But honestly, this device is a significant upgrade from the 2016, the processor is easily twice as fast on general tasks, and with the improved cooling I’m constantly getting turbo boost without any thermal throttling.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the setup was with the 2019.
Now for internal display acceleration I think you need to tinker around a little bit, but nothing as complicated as the 2016.
I’ll post some more info once I’ve tried some games with the internal display!
So do you have to boot into Windows and then plug in the eGPU? Or can you cold plug?
Also, any idea how this setup would behave on MacOS?
Same here, I am interested in knowing how this works in macos and if cold booting to macos and windows works
@alexxxst, My Bluetooth is working fine. If you have issues, try disabling it in device manager before your last shutdown and then enabling it once you got back up.
I had some issues with it disappearing in the beginning, but have not had issues since disabling/enabling it in device manager once.
I've not had any issues with Bluetooth recently either. Hot plugging as soon as I get to the windows desktop seemed to help avoid issues, but now I think maybe a windows update may have made this work properly even if I don't.
