I have a Razer eGPU and would like to connect it to 2 different laptops via Thunderbolt. My keyboard, mouse, network and monitors are all connected to the eGPU. I only use 1 laptop at a time but want to be able to switch between them quickly. Is there some sort of thunderbolt switch (kind of like KVM switch) that allows me to switch between 2 laptops quickly?



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

@k_m, I'm not aware of a Thunderbolt switch like what you're describing. Due to the PCIe connection, hot-unplug requires proper handling to not crash apps/system. IMO it's quickest and simplest to physically disconnect the Thunderbolt connector from one computer and connect it to the other.
