2019 16" MacBook Pro (RP5500M) [9th,8C,H] + RX 5700 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (ADT-Link R43SG * M.2-TB3) + macOS 10.15.1 & Win10 1903
The less fancy ADT-Link cables also work. Or buy an M.2 to PCIe x4 adapter (no cable):
If I understand well, this is a way to build our own egpu ... tb3 -> nvme -> Pcie
Then how you can have better performances ? The TB3 limit the bandwidth no?
Thanx in advance
Thunderbolt 3 NVMe adapter is just a way to make a Thunderbolt 3 egpu.
For best performance, you need to eliminate Thunderbolt altogether and connect directly to an M.2 slot of your computer.
Yes, At the end I understand well Nvme is in case we have direct access.
Interesting stuff! Divide by two+ the price to connect e CG to a laptop...
@sirius_stern It's not able to charge the laptop in this build configuration. The laptop actually provides a minimal downstream power to the M.2 Thunderbolt 3 board.
