Revoccases - CC-NUC1 | NUC eGPU - Anyone tried it? No performance hit on Tiger Canyon NUC11 motherboard video out?
Has anyone tried a NUC + EGPU case like the Revocases RCC-NC1, here? It uses the M.2 port from a NUC.
It was recently tested using a new "Tiger Canyon" NUC with PCIe 4.0 and it looks like we can connect to either the GPU or motherboard video out and not suffer a performance hit?
Discussion over here. Does anyone know why? Is there something special about Tiger Canyon NUC11 Pro?
This is a M.2 rather than an Thunderbolt eGPU. An example previously done at:
Can see why it performs better than the usual TB3 eGPUs in my signature build.
@nando4 - Yeah, that makes sense. We've always known M.2 does a little better than TB because of TB overhead. What's interesting here is that on Tiger Canyon you can connect a monitor directly to the mobo instead of the GPU and not take a performance hit. There are some highly technical PCH DMI discussions I am vaguely recalling. Normally, you want to connect your monitor directly to the GPU, right? Here, we don't have to.
