Installation steps

  1. Unboxed everything.
  2. Pulled enclosure handle to open it.
  3. Unscrewed thumb screw.
  4. I fixed the graphic card in place.
  5. Screwed thumb screw back.
  6. Put the handle back to the initial position to close the case.
  7. Connected the power cord.
  8. Connected Thunderbolt cable.
  9. Powered laptop on.
  10. Logged-in.
  11. Powered up the enclosure.
  12. Opened device manager and choose to install a driver to "basic graphic card".
  13. Device manager asked to use Windows Update to find a missing driver, and I agreed.
  14. It worked without reboot just after driver installation was completed.

Benchmarks

Hashcat

hashcat (v6.1.1) starting in benchmark mode...

Benchmarking uses hand-optimized kernel code by default.
You can use it in your cracking session by setting the -O option.
Note: Using optimized kernel code limits the maximum supported password length.
To disable the optimized kernel code in benchmark mode, use the -w option.

* Device #1: WARNING! Kernel exec timeout is not disabled.
This may cause "CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES" or related errors.
To disable the timeout, see: https://hashcat.net/q/timeoutpatch
* Device #2: WARNING! Kernel exec timeout is not disabled.
This may cause "CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES" or related errors.
To disable the timeout, see: https://hashcat.net/q/timeoutpatch
This OpenCL driver has been marked as likely to fail kernel compilation or to produce false negatives.
You can use --force to override this, but do not report related errors.

Comments

  • Stable 30/60 fps in 4k/almost-4k in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition on best settings (won't even start on iGPU).
  • AoE I/II up to 250/500 people per player, Lift-off, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, GTAV, Cyberpunk 2077 all playable on max settings (most of them being slides on 720p with iGPU).
  • Hashcating MD5 up to 7 bytes almost "instantly"; ~16h for my WiFi password (need to change it on all devices, inducing this IoT crap, as it's too simple).
  • Crashed once in internal and external display settings (expanded desktop).
  • Transfer rates looks cut in half. I expected it to be twice as fast, around 2.4GB/s.
  • Up to 47°C on the top of the enclosure.
  • Noisy as hell. I'm always playing in Bose noise canceling headphones.
  • Finally, I'm back to PC gaming after 15 years of having more important expenses. 😉
  • Everything I needed for my eGPU setup I learned here. Thanks!

@nq4c, Thank you for sharing this build! Your system has a x2 PCIe lane connection for the Thunderbolt 3 port. 3DMark numbers show huge difference between internal display and external monitor modes.

Your system has a x2 PCIe lane connection for the Thunderbolt 3 port.

Yes, I can confirm that (screen from WHiNFO64 below). It was a bit surprising to find out TB3 can have x2 or x4 configuration. I wasn't' aware I should verify that beforehand. My bad. I probably could get a similar laptop for a very similar price with x4 PCIe configuration for TB3 port. After reading a bit about TB3 I also tried, and can confirm, that Power Delivery works fine with this laptop. The battery is charging pretty quickly.

But hey, as it maxes all the benchmarks and games on "Ultra" (Spiro and Quake II RTX) or "almost Ultra" (GTAV, AOE3, Cyberpunk 2077) settings renders more than 60 fps, I don't care. I will take it into consideration when I decide to upgrade my laptop. I think I should first upgrade the monitor to something capable of UHD (2k/4k) in more than 60/30Hz.

I did a few more benchmarks. Here is Port Royal's score on the internal display. Even with x2, it's all way green with the dot at the end of the scale.

I also learned how to show overlay in games with some stats (with MSI Afterburner software). What is strange, I got the "LIM" message with the "power" or "voltage". Does it mean that GPU has to throttle down because PSU cannot deliver enough power (voltage drop-down)? I have these "LIM" messages in Q2 RTX and even in the Spiro. Screens below.

Finally, I need to learn how to make it less noisy. Without the headphones, it's a pain to sit near to eGPU for a longer time. I think to start with a longer TB3 cable to put it under the desk to distance fans from my ears.

I'm not sure why HP does that to their TB3 ports. With or without dGPU's they limit to 2 lanes.
