I have Akitio Node with gtx1080ti integrated on it.
There is only one thunderbolt3 exit that connected directly to my laptop via thunderbolt3. (lenovo yoga 920)
I have two laptops of the type described above.
I want to connect them both to my one Acitio Node box at the same time.

Is it possible?
Maybe some smart splitter that can switch the signals from both laptops to one gpu and back in the real time?
Or something like - 40GB/s that will be divided between two laptops (20GB/s + 20GB/s) - enough for running all game on middle settings..

Thanks a lot!
