Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)

Installed update Thunderbolt drivers
Plugged in Akitio Node with GTX 970 installed
Installed Nvidia drivers
Updated Node firmware


Benchmarks
(Include a CUDA-Z or AIDA64 eGPU bandwidth pic. Optional: Valley, 3dmark, etc noting if it's on internal/external LCD )

ADA64 reports bus type as PCI Express 3.0 x 16 @ 1.1 x4
Cinebench R15 OpenGL with internal Intel HD Graphics 620 = 31.80 fps

 Just got the setup installed....

 

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

@richard10250 , thank you for your submission. Would you mind please adding:

1.A CUDA-Z H2D or AIDA64 GPU write eGPU bandwidth result to this post as shown at the following URL? This will tell us if the T570 has a full performance 4-lane TB3 controller.

https://egpu.io/build-guides/#perf

2. some photos of your gear to bring it all to life?

As is now, I've titled the thread as 16Gbps-TB3 bandwidth as we know the similar T470 has a narrow 2-lane-TB3 controller.

You can make a few dummy posts to get your post count over 5 in order to attach pictures. Or can link to images hosted elsewhere:

Hurray! I have gotten 5 independent displays running off my T570 laptop using the Akitio Node. Three displays off the Node and two displays off the Laptop. Fun times!

You could technically have 3 displays off the laptop 🙂
