@nosbod, 64Gbps-M.2 (PCIe M.2 4.0) benchmarks noticably faster across the board than 32Gbps-TB4. Control nearly twice faster:

@ruxi_wang, Understood, thanks!  

 

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

@nando4, Thanks, got it!  I still like the easy portability of the laptop. Just wondering if it’s as easy/convenient  to disconnect from the ADT as the TB. 

I guess if not, the performance increase is is still probably worth the hassle!

Yes, a M.2 eGPU requires some more planning before implementation to have an accessible M.2 slot, and how it is going to be wired.

It is possible to hedge your bets to construct a TB3/TB4 eGPU using components so can use or test it as a M.2 eGPU as well. Consider

1. ADT-Link R43SG 4.0 + M.2-TB3 enclosure (M.2: PCIe 4.0, soldered; TB3: 15W PD, no I/O ports)

2. ADT-Link R43SG 4.0 + JEYI Thunderbolt 3 Dock (M2: PCIe 4.0, soldered;  TB3: 60W+15W PD, I/O ports)

3. JHH-Link Dock-M.2 NVMe + M.2-TB3 enclosure (M.2: PCIe 3.0, socketted, TB3: 15W PD, no I/O ports)

4. JHH-Link Dock-M.2 NVMe + JEYI Thunderbolt 3 Dock (M2: PCIe 3.0, sockettedTB3: 60W+15W PD, I/O ports)

* PCIe 4.0 recommended for best signal integrity or use in Intel 11th-gen or newer CPUs which carry PCIe 4.0 lanes
* socketted M.2 eGPU adapter allows easier undocking but atm is limited to PCIe 3.0

@ruxi_wang, great design, at the same time I have a little doubt, pcie4.0 has a great increase in bandwidth compared to pcie3.0, R43SG 4.0 can also support pcie4.0 full speed, so I want to ask if it can be used on Ryzen laptop If pcie4.0 can solve the problem of insufficient bandwidth in 3.0, is it unnecessary to use an external display with pcie4.0 external graphics card? Looking forward to your reply 👍

@xiexielinjiang, Ryzen 4000 and 5000 laptops do not have PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots. They are PCIe 3.0.

Only some recent 11th-gen Intel CPU notebooks have PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot(s).

@xiexielinjiang, as mentioned in this build the author test it on internal screen and the latency is noticeable and it is not recommended to use internal display if you really want to squish out the best of your eGPU performance.
