Ah fair, so there is a notable increase in performance in the 2080ti setup then?

I thought the thunderbolt 3 would completely bottleneck the gpu and cpu performance.

Also have you found any stuttering issues when playing games? I've heard quite a lot of people complain about that when using an egpu.

 

How much temperature decrease you get in the laptop overall? does it affect the cpu temperature as well?

Thanks for your benchmarks! 

With the increase in VR performance, do you find any notable increase in non-VR games as well?

Also have you tried running it on 4K since the 3080 is designed to run at that resolution.

Yes, there's a significant increase for me.

I'm definitely being bottlenecked in my RB15 by the TB3 port, but if I were to have an Icelake or the soon to be released tigerlake processors, then I wouldn't have nearly as much of a bottleneck since for these the TB3 ports direct connect to the CPU.

I had stuttering at first, this was solved by correctly installing the drivers (there are guides on this website) and by disabling my dGPU when I am plugged into the eGPU.

With my temps, I went from having 90-95C highs on the CPU while gaming to 80C highs, up to 75C highs if I force the fans on my laptop to run at full blast (I've found razer's fan profile is way, way more conservative than it should be when reaching gaming temps.

Laptop: Razer Blade Advanced 15" w/ GTX 2060, i7 8750H, 16GB RAM
eGPU: Razer Core x Chroma w/ 2080ti

Yeah, I've read that the new tigerlake CPU will have the thunderbolt 4.

But I also read that the thunderbolt 4 won't be much faster than 3 with the same 40GB/s transfer rate. I assume that Intel will go with the same architecture as the icelake CPU in the tigerlake so we can actually see how much of an improvement tb 4 is.

Interesting, I usually run a cooler when gaming and set the fans to balanced and it managed to keep the temperature around low 80s and high 70s. I'm curious how much of a difference the egpu could make if that's the case! Also, how much is your temperature when running the egpu?

I don't play non-VR games, now. Sorry. I focus on VR games.

I ran Time spy and Time spy extreme(4K).

do you think a evga 3080 ftw3 with 3 pin , will work with the razer core x chroma?

Razer core x chroma has 6+2(8) pin x2 power supply, so it cannot handle 8pin x3.

@mo_oi, so your saying that the 700 watts razer egpu will not work with the evga ftw3 that will have an available 8 pin?  it needs to have a psu that has 3 pin connectors of 8?

Get a 8 pin to 2 8pin cable. If the power supply itself is single rail then it should work.

Just put that on one of the 8pin cables... obviously at your own risk, but I see no reason why it would not work. The chroma x power supply is 700W (plenty of overhead for a 3080), and if it really is a single rail supply you shouldn't have to worry about over current protection.
