System specs:

Early 2018 13" Razer Blade Stealth - i7-8550U/UHD Graphics 620 iGPU/16GB RAM/512GB SSD


eGPU hardware:

Razer Core V2 + Radeon RX 580 + .5m Thunderbolt 3 cable


Hardware pictures:


Installation steps:

Windows 10 1709 - it was plug and play with this setup, no drama here.



I ran AIDA64 with nothing attached to the expansion ports to get a baseline of bandwidth. HWiNFO64 showed a x4 PCIe connection to Thunderbolt 3 port.



These benchmarks were done through internal display acceleration mode.

I've been using this setup to complete the ultrabook buyer's guide for eGPU. The early 2018 Razer Blade Stealth is a good choice for this purpose.
