Any benchmarks from eGPU GPU performance to full fledged system performance in a dedicated PC?

I've got my 2070 Ultra working well in my Core X with Windows boot camped on my 2018 MacBook Pro, but I'm curious what performance I am losing. My upgrade path will bring me to a dedicated PC eventually but I'm curious what my performance boost will be, if any. I'm guessing I'm hitting some bottleneck somewhere but I'm curious what the gain will be. 

Appreciate any input!

Here's my most recent build comparing dGPU vs eGPU in a Threadripper system. In short TB3 eGPU is great for computing tasks where there's minimal performance loss. Gaming performance depends on a lot of factors.
