2020 15" Dell G5 SE 5055 (RX5600M) [R4K,8C,H] + RX 5600 XT @ 32Gbps-M.2 (ADT-Link R43SG) + Win10 // first Ryzen 4000 x4 3.0 M.2 eGPU build
@Tmash , would you mind submitting a build of your Motile 14 eGPU system by completing a build template ? This is a system we haven't seen before. Would love to see pics of your 3D printed M.2 slot access slider door as well.
@danny8, This is an ITX version and it doesn't consume as much power. I have been using the ITX RX 5600 XT with both DA-2 in this build and the VisionTek mini eGFX which has a 240W power adapter (45W Power Delivery). There has been no power issues in both macOS and Windows.
Hi, did you try updating the Dell G5's bios to 1.5.0? Just want to share that it seems to lower the bus speeds from Gen 3 x4 to Gen 3 x2 or sometimes 1.1~ with me using an rtx 3080.
But good news is that reverting to 1.4.4 / 1.3.0 has no issues on e-gpu via the 2nd M.2 slot.

Hi! I also have a Ryzen notebook and I'm wondering if it is possible to use the notebook screen to play. Or you have to plug an external display to use the egpu ?
@itsage, thank you so much for posting this. I saw your response on the other thread and I forgot to ask you this. I have a Dell G5 5587 ( i7-8750H) . Do you think the R43SG will be compatible with my Dell G5 ? Also between the R43SG 4.0 and the 3.0, should I buy the latter as it has been around for a longer time ? Just want to be absolutely sure before I invest in these items. Thanks !
@nikunj_nik, Most likely it will work with your G5 5587.You can get the 3.0 since the connection inside the laptop is PCIe 3.0.
