MBP Mid 2015 (M370X) + Asus XG Station Pro + Asus Vega 56 STRIX (macOS 10.13.4 & Windows 10)
This edit window won't let me add text outside of the blockquote :/
That's the link above. I agree that the thermal management in the enclosure sounds great, I just thought this was a cool feature!
My XG Station has arrived in Aus so should be here in the next couple of days for me to test out for myself 😮
The fans are standard four-pin models, so they can also be plugged directly into Strix cards with FanConnect headers. While fan speeds are normally dictated by a thermal diode on the XG Station Pro’s circuit board, FanConnect lets them react directly to the GPU temperature for more responsive cooling.
That sounds quite interesting! Please report back you findings. I am still very happy with my XG Station, hope you will enjoy it too!
Quick report on windows compatibility:
Today I have updated purge-wrangler script from 3.0.2 to 3.1.0 on my MacBook Mid 2015, booted into windows, eGPU was not recognized. Than I updated windows, had to reboot and surprisingly my external monitor connected to the Vega 56 in XG Station lighted up!
I played a few minutes of Rise of the Tomb Raider in 5120*2880, restarted several times while constantly being connected to lower thunderbolt 2 port. It seems to work kind of reliably now! Screen was always showing up.
Will try same procedure on Mac Pro next.
