2017 14" Razer Blade GTX1060 + GTX1080Ti@32Gbps-TB3 (AKiTiO Node) + Win10 [rb6freak]^
Hello forum, I thought I’d share my eGPU benchmarks and thoughts on my current setup. I’ve been doing eGPU setups for a year now. Everything was plug-in-play with the Akitio Node. I did the firmware update as soon as I received it. MSI After Burner software was causing my Thunderbolt software to crash so I had to disable MSI After Burner. I lose fan control and in-game temperature monitoring, but its not a big deal to me. I use Razer GPU Switcher application which works just fine with the Node as it did with the Razer Core when I had it. I will complete any benchmark requests for you, cheers.

Thank you for sharing your setup and benchmarks. What’s your impression of the performance difference between the GTX 1060 dGPU vs. GTX 1080 Ti eGPU?
