Hey! I wanted to share my l setup purchased in China. It's a Mechrevo S3 11th i7 gen laptop and it's performing extremely well considering the price. 

eGPU

 

Computer

  • MechRevo S3 
  • 11th Gen Intel 11657g
  • 14" FHD IPS 100% sRGB
  • 16gb DDR 4
  • Intel Iris Xe
  • Nvme 512gb
  • Orico External 2x SSD 

 

So I was shopping around for a decent 11th gen laptop and could not find anything that was well priced. I eventually picked up this mechrevo S3.

I was previously using the Razer Blade stealth early 2019 i7 8565u but found the performance underwhelming. Using the Razer, you'd have the GPU spinning at max speed during boot. This Mechrevo seems extremely well optimized for EGPUs. A split second of GPU revving up when booting and it takes less than a second to identify and turn on the second monitor when hot-swapping. Overall I must say that I am extremely impressed with the results. When viewing the Thunderbolt Control Center, I do not see the device nor does it ask me to validate it. It just works and shows up in Device manager. 

I'm Using throttle stop to disable and enable to CPU boost clock in specific games.  I have not needed to use the boost clock and have maintained 60fps in almost all games.

Assassins Creed Valhalla - 1080p Medium/High - 55-65 FPS

Escape from Tarkov - 1080p Low/Medium - 80-90 FPS

CyberPunk 2077 - 1080P Medium Preset no DLSS no Ray Tracing - 78-90FPS. ( Lows in populated areas around 55FPS ) 

CyberPunk 2077- 1080p Ultra Preset / Ray tracing / DLSS on performance - 45-55 FPS ( Lows in populated areas around 35 FPS ) 

PUBG - 1080p - Low - 120FPS ( I capped it at 120FPS)

Installation Steps:

Slotted the GPU into the Razer Core, Plugged it into the laptop, Installed Nvidia drivers and away we sailed.

The only thing I needed to change was setting the LSPM to OFF in the advanced power options. This stopped lagging on the dekstop.

 

Comments:

Overall I'm extremely impressed with the results. I purchased this setup because I plan to move once things settle down. Didn't want to drag a desktop around with me and wanted a one PC solution. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi,

 

looks very nice. Can you tell me about the cinebench benchmarks of that cpu and does it get loud?

 

Best regards
