Installation Steps

 


Drivers installation failure and solution
During the first build of the configuration, I faced the fact that after disconnecting the eGPU, the internal Quadro 2000 did not work in the system and each time it was necessary to reinstall the drivers. In principle, this situation suited me until the drivers from 1080T fell off and refused to be installed. Created a separate post, solved the problem. In short:


Comments

I am an engineer engaged in the development and implementation of aeroponic and hydroponic technologies of cultivation of plants. Due to the specifics of the work, I often have to move and the assembly of a desktop workstation is unacceptable for me.
In fact, the built-in Quadro is enough for me to work with small assemblies of 200-500 parts (I mainly work in Unigraphics NX and Siemens SolidEdge), but since I accompany projects from idea to launch I have to prepare various media materials that I process using 1080Ti power, such as renders, animations and BP content. For this task I mainly use 3ds max, v-ray, keyshot, aftereffects, photoshop.

If anyone needs some kind of benchmarks to be run on this system - write me about it, everyone is welcome.

Hello, I am trying to setup a Dell Precision 7530 with a Razer Core X and RTX2080ti for VR use in work.
When I connect the Razer Core X there is an error message "try improving the usb connection..." but it does not recognise the GPU. The Razer Core does appear in Device Manager as a USB device.
The PC is brand new but has an old version of Windows 10 (1703 build  1506.1928) as this is the build we use in Work at the moment.
Do you think this is the cause of the issue?
What version of Windows are you using?

Thanks
Peter

Hi. I haven't faced such problem.
My Windows build is 1803 17134.885
Maybe it's a driver conflict. Try using https://www.wagnardsoft.com/ if it's possible for you.

Maybe it's a problem with the cable. Try a new Thunderbolt 3 cable?
Is there a BIOS setting in the Dell to enable Thunderbolt?
