[Group Buy] ASUS XG Station Pro - US$299.99 [EXPIRED]
The best Thunderbolt adapter is Apple USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt. I believe @Yukikaze had a similar laptop working with TB3 enclosure through the adapter.

Thank you, will do! Have been wanting to try this setup for a while and am excited to give it a shot now that the newest TB3 firmware for the P50 reports eGPU compatibility. Given 64GB of RAM, I'll be curious to see whether the i7-6820HQ or the limited bandwidth of the TB3 connection will be the larger bottleneck.
@yukikaze Thank you for the confirmation and build link.
@rowan17 I'm looking forward to seeing your results. You can go wild with the XG Station Pro in terms of graphics cards. I've tried hybrid cards in this build. While it doesn't retain the nice look of the enclosure, there's something to be said about and eGPU that runs cool and can hold your beer. :p
Would love to be on the list. I saw this particular eGPU pop up and while the power delivery is a bit of a bummer (would've liked one cable to handle everything), not at all a deal breaker. I also like how clean it looks and how quiet it can (apparently) run.
@rowan17 The one device I don't recommend connecting the USB-C10 port to is a 4K monitor. SSD is another high bandwidth consuming device (up to 10Gbps) but that only impedes the eGPU's bandwidth when there's concurrent use. Ideally I'd use the expansion port for a USB-C hub that hosts mouse, keyboard, card reader, etc.
