Great eGPU performance with Dell XPS 9310 + Mantiz Saturn Pro + NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti. (~16% performance difference vs 12 Core Ryzen 3900X Desktop)

After being unable to resolve my GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC 8G issue, with the fans spinning to 100% whenever the laptop is asleep or off, I decided to borrow my brother's MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X to see if the issue was directly caused by the GPU model. (Turns out it is, anyone want an RTX 2070 Super?)

While I was at it, I decided to benchmark it against my brother's desktop with his MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X.

For reference, he is running a Ryzen 9 3900X and 16GB 3600Mhz CL16 RAM.

The card is running at stock clocks in both systems:

unigine 3900
unigine 1165

Only a 16% performance loss going from a 12 core Ryzen system to a 4 Core Ultrabook. Extremely happy with this outcome. 

 

More to come.

Yea I was having the same problem problem with my RTX 2060 Super with spinning fans after shutdown.  Found a workaround by disabling fast startup under power options in Win10 and no more spinning fans after shutdown.  BIOS issue on the cards more than likely with the RTX series as I did not have this issue with my 10 series card (1060).  Also had an issue where the system was unstable with low intensive games (Slay the Spire) where it would just randomly lock up.  System would not do this with higher intensive games (doom eternal).  Found out that I had to adjust the power options in nvidia control panel to change it to maximum performance and after that all stable.  Again, did not have this issue running 10 series cards.  Running it on a Razer Stealth 2020 icelake.  It could be a combination of factors but those were the workarounds that I did to get the RTX card working properly.

@mbliss11, Yeah I thought fast start-up was the culprit, but changing it did not fix the issue sadly. Other than the fans it worked beautifully and was performing very well. A shame really.

Nice build! It seems Tiger Lake is quite interesting for eGPU. Are you planning on doing some gaming benchmarks? If so, I would kindly ask you if you could try Call of Duty Warzone. Unfortunately Warzone is a game that doesn't run that well on TB eGPU setups (more info here: anyone actually able to get consistent performance in cod warzone)... if it does run well on Tiger Lake this would be great news!
