@robin_martin .. Thanks so much! I think I'm gonna go with one of these BenQ's. The price is much more easier to swallow than the LG's! Debating if I should get 2 of your version or 1 of the 3200U.

Thanks again for the input, super helpful.

@robin_martin Do you think these newer models with the tb3 IO will work or should i just play it safe and go with what i know works?  https://www.benq.com/en-us/monitor/designer/pd3220u/specifications.html

I did a comparison between the 2 models, didnt see much of a differennce but i could be missing something in the specs that you may know...

hi everybody I am new to the forum. I recently bought an iMac i5 2018 with razer x and Vega 64 and everything working fine on osx and bootcamp window 10. Now I want to return the Vega 64 for the Radeon VII. Do you know the procedure that I have to follow to not messed with the old drivers from the Vega 64 on bootcamp? Thanks. It also my system is connecting with display port on egpu and lg 27ul650. I am on 10.15 beta 2

@p_gartner I'm on the fence about TB3 I/O and went the CalDigit TS3+ route so that I can separate all the other stuff from video/graphics and RAID storage.

I'm not sure if there are any performance differences with driving the display directly off the eGPU instead of routing through TB3, but it's how I prefer to run it.

@robin_martin awesome thanks, makes perfect sense. I think thats a smart route and the way going to go because I wouldn't want to be in the same position I am now with TB3 I/O performance issues.

One last question, do you think i should upgrate from my CalDigit TS2 to the TS3+ for what I'm looking to do? I'm not really separating much more at the moment. I may do RAID storage or a NAS system in the future but not now.

What version of Radeon Adrenalin are you running? Is it from Bootcampdrivers.com?

@p_gartner If you don't have anything requiring the TB3 bandwidth, it should be fine to keep the TS2 for general I/O (audio, network, keyboard, mouse, USB 3 external drives, etc.)

@evangelos_vasilaropoulos I'd recommend the 19.3.3 version from Bootcampdrivers.com.

@itsage curious of why you are recommending the 19.3.3 instead of the 19.4.1, did you notice something?
