Oh, I got it! I went through the ADT-Link discussion page as well!

Thank you for clearing this to me Smile

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.

This is impressive first of all..

I have some question. Can I use this setup on my ImacPro with Nvidia RTX card? 2080Ti maybe..

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@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.

@dan_iii_zambrano, The ADT-Link R43SG + M.2-TB3 adapter should work with any Thunderbolt 3 Macs.
