@itsage @joevt Alas, I sold my TB4 hub, and I only have 1x TB3 nvme enclosure. 

PS: I also added a prelim build page of my own

I first posted here but I see more people actually caring about this topic 😉

I'm very much interested in eGPU on framework laptop. Could you please test some linux on it? I'm going to buy framework and would like to know if it's painless on linux to play with it.

My Macbook Pro 2017 has issues with eGPU on linux but on Windows it works good. ;/

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

Hello! Sorry for the slow replies, I don't check my eGPU.io account often.

@joevt Unfortunately I do not have the equipment to test multi-NVMe RAID setups with my Framework. There might be someone on the Framework Forums who could answer that question though, as that's where a large majority of the laptop's userbase congregates.

@juniorjpdj While I have no idea how to benchmark or fully-test its capabilities, I can confirm that using Zorin OS 16 Core (which is basically a re-skinned Ubuntu Linux) detects both the ADT-Link eGPU enclosure and my NVIDIA card upon plugging my setup in without any configuration. Booting up the Framework with the eGPU plugged in and connected to an external monitor over DisplayPort (not pictured) also worked flawlessly, to my surprise. I haven't tried any GPU-intensive applications, however.
