System specs : HP x360 13inch, 8550u/16GB/512GB


eGPU hardware : Sonnet Breakaway 550w Model with GTX 1070 and original cable!


Installation steps: Plug and pay, nothing special. Even shows the UEFI and BIOS screens on the external screens which is nice. 


Comments: I sold my Alienware cause more often than not I'd like better battery life. Plus the Alienware was pretty loud and in meetings I'd prefer a touch screen. I used to use the 1070 over a hacked up akitio tb2 enclosure. It worked actually great but over TB3 it's even better. 


More Benchmarks to come!

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
