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

In my case it was pretty much plug-and-play:

1. Slot GTX 1070 into Razer Core X

2. Plug Razer Core X into external display

3. Plug Razer Core X into XPS 15

4. Update to most recent NVIDIA driver and tell windows to connect with EGPU

 

Benchmarks (Include a  CUDA-Z  or  AIDA64  bandwidth pic. Optional: Valley3dmark, noting if it's on internal/external LCD )

Comments (eg: how has the eGPU improved your workflow or gaming)

Originally prior to getting this laptop, I was using a Thinkpad P50 with a Quadro M1000M as its dGPU. This was a fairly absymal experience for gaming, even on the lowest settings. Now I'm able to play most of the games I want to on high or near-high at 70-100 FPS, which is much better, and this system as a whole is more portable than my previous attempts at getting decent gaming performance, which is important as I will have to move sometime in the next year or so.

Are you getting any issues with the XPS and the core where the usb hub on the core would stop working after sleep or a restart? How about any issues regarding how the egpu wouldn't be detected after a restart and you have to restart again?
 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I haven't personally had any issues with that, but the version of the core X I have doesn't have a usb hub built into it. Instead, I use a separate powered USB-A to USB-C hub
