I was already on egpu with my old laptop (still my main system) I just needed a smaller device.
It runs the index well (with the 2080ti) at least in pistol whip.
egpu was really icing on the cake of oled 2 in 1

Thanks for sharing. Can you say something about the noise level when gaming or just browsing?

When browsing and watching sub 4k YouTube it's silent. When watching 4khdr YouTube it spools up a bit but to the point where it's inaudible when I have my iems in.

However in VR it's noticeably loud. (Won't notice it with the headset on but when you take it off it'll be obvious.)

What I will say tho is I'm a bad judge of noise, my high end laptop is very very loud and I don't care at all.

Thank you for sharing.

Is your setup "hot-pluggable?" If you were to unplug and re-plug the TB3 cable, with or without "ejecting" the eGPU from within Windows first, does everything still work?

Applications being open will either crash or cause a bluescreen depending on how much they use the egpu
but if everything is closed (desktop) it works just fine.

Will it also crash if you first sleep your laptop, unplug the eGPU, and then wake up your laptop?

Got it, thanks.

What about when you plug the laptop back in: does the eGPU/external monitor work automatically? Or do you have to enable it manually via Device Manager or via the Nvidia system tray app?

@yeah_mike

you only have to manually reenable it via device manager or the nvidia thingey if you disable it through those (btw the nvidia thingey disables it in device manager and vice versa)
