So I was "Lucky" last week that I got to purchase a 5900X at AMD. 

I'm thinking about pairing it with the new Asus ProArt Creator. It looks nice. I also like how it's clear where the TB4 lanes are coming from, sharing with the 3rd PCIE port which I don't plan on utilizing. 

If somebody sees a eGPU red flag on this, please let me know. Otherwise I'll report my results when the MB becomes available.

@timot-mo, That's a very nice motherboard and maybe the first AMD option with Thunderbolt 4. You can either go with Thunderbolt eGPU or M.2 socket with the ADT-Link R43SG.

@itsage, that m.2 solution is pretty cool! I can actually use that with my current system but I’m not sure 50mm of length is long enough.  They say the 70mm may effect bandwidth.. do you have any experience with the longer cable?

Actually, I think 50mm is fine... think I'm going to give this a go.

@timot-mo, I have only used the 50mm version. I've seen people using an extender to protect the computer M.2 socket so it may not effect performance by much.
