System 76 / Clevo Bonobo extreme has TB 1 (thunderbolt 1) connection.

Is there a way to connect a Node Titan with TB3  and make it work?

I understand that there would be a limited speed on the TB1 port

there is a TB1 / 2 to TB3 adapter. Just because I can plug it in doesn't mean that it will work

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

I'm not familiar with that particular laptop, but I can say that I use an Akitio Node with my TB1 Macbook Pro using the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter. Presumably it will work so long as the laptop has thunderbolt and not just mini displayport (which looks the same but doesn't have thunderbolt functionality)
