Hi guys,

I'm having an issue with my eGPU coming up as unsupported on the XPS 13 2-in-1.  I have updated my BIOS and all Thunderbolt drivers to the latest ones off of the Dell website but it is still showing up as unsupported.  Another user with the same laptop over at Reddit ( https://www.reddit.com/r/Dell/comments/5mlogw/just_bought_an_xps_2_in_1_from_bb_ama/) shows that he got his working with the Razer Core and TheITSage was able to get it working with the Alienware R4 which uses the same TB3 controller (15D9).  Any suggestions?

I'm trying to hook mine up to the PowerColor Devil Box w/GTX 1070 FE.  The computer recognizes the eGPU enclosure, it is just showing it is incompatible because "eGPUs are not supported".  

My current version:

My Dell XPS 9350 shows "External GPUs supported: No" as well. What do you see in Device Manager under Displays?

Have you tried turning "Security Level:" to No Security (SL0)? If not, access the BIOS to make that change and see if it makes a difference.

I will check the BIOS. 

My display adapters only show the iGPU.

Do you know if there is a NVM firmware update for your laptop? Yours is awfully outdated.

It is the "latest one" per the Dell website.

Any update on this one guys? I have a new XPS 13 2in1 and want to use it for some light gaming (halo wars, Ark) just wondering if it is possible?

Never got it to work.  I ended up returning the laptop due to battery drain issues during sleep mode, along with the irritating screen brightness changing.

I've been testing a Dell XPS 9365. It works with both the AKiTiO Node and Mantiz Venus. @theblazingwasab sorry to hear of your bad luck. It has a lot to do with timing. Dell has since released fixes for those issues. Asus also has a firmware update to support more computers.

How did you get it to run? My NVM is version 9.00, external GPU support: no. Please share with me the magic how to turn the "no" to "yes".

Thank you,

Ivan
