@boltoway, I can open GeForce Experience but not Nvidia Control Panel. 

I am trying to open from my laptop screen which is the primary and main screen. But I tried to open Nvidia Control Panel while attached to my eGPU and external monitor.

Nothing happen and nothing open when I click on my Nvidia Control Panel

I wouldn't be suprised if it didn't open on your laptop screen, but it should work on your external monitor if it is connected directly to your eGPU.

I would recommend running DDU and doing a fresh driver installation now that your RTX card is working, if you haven't already.

For the record 

problem solved !

that was just a f*****g driver issue …

Went back to the July drivers and everything goes like a dream ! 
it has been a lonely conversation but maybe it will be helpful for anybody who don’t think to just try to rollback to older drivers ! 
see you guys !

@papoose02

I'd like to confirm there seems to be a driver issue for all nvidia drivers so far post 472.12 causing cpu overusage in certain games severely bottlenecking the gpu. Appears to be apparent in some games but not others, noticed in Cyberpunk & Red Dead Redemption 2 so far but not games like battlefield v/Jedi Fallen Order... Cyberpunk becomes very stuttery and red dead's frames are essentially cut in half. Hopefully this is addressed in the future but last few nvidia driver updates havent so far.. I'm running a 3060ti in a Razer Core X with an 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1165G7 btw. Given how cpu limited egpu setups usually are this is a somewhat worrying trend..

And for the record tried a bunch of the new drivers after full driver uninstalls/clean installs etc etc, 472.12 is the last driver this wasnt an issue in. All the 49x drivers have the issue, read somewhere they're now DCH drivers meaning you're forced to use the Microsoft store nvidia control panel ap now which may be a factor but who knows..

Just an update the aforementioned driver issue above appears to be addresses in the latest nvidia release (497.09), thankfully.. Smile

I am using an Intel Nuc10i7fnk (64GB 2666MHz RAM, Samsung 970Evo M.2 SSD) and a Razer Core X Chroma with an EVGA RTX 3080 FTW (12GB) and when benchmarking I am getting significantly lower frame rates/scores than I was expecting. I know that you will lose some performance with an EGPU, but this seems excessive. Anyone else experiencing similar/have any advice you can give me? It did take a while to get the video card working properly as well, but I am no longer having stability issues just the graphics ones.

 

Please let me know if any other settings/benchmarks would be useful, and any help is much appreciated!

Well, start with the basics Divers, cables(do not have a cable over three feet in length), and above all: memory clock speeds.

Second, make sure the nvidia console is set to use the 3080, not the Irus processor graphics.

Third, make sure "power management mode" in the NVIDIA control panel is set to "Prefer maximum performance".

Also, are you rocking 8 or more gigs of ram in that thing? (low CL, rank two ram is the best for a laptop, but you will want to use a ram calculator to figure that out: Absolute latency = (CAS latency*2000) / Frequency) Steve from GN has an awesome webpage about this.

and last, make sure the Nuc isn't running in "Balanced" power mode, windows loves to set that for you and it can ruin any good test on a machine.

Thanks for all the awesome tips and hints. Having my first eGPu setup and after the initial setup problems I got it running except one thing.

Whenever Afterburner / RTSS is running, or even HWinfo - I am getting lag spikes depending on the polling rate of those apps (like every 2 or 5 seconds consistently). My guess is the 3060 is constantly getting woke up and put to sleep and woke up again or something. I tried reinstalling drivers and apps and different settings, but the outcome is always the same: Smooth sailing when those apps are closed and lag spikes when I open them.
I wonder if I just miss a simple setting in the drivers or if there is something I missed setting up. Thanks in advance!

It also makes no difference if I use eGPU>External, eGPU>External only. Internal only, it is always the same.
I experimented with the power settings, set GPU to max power but no dice.

This is how the frametime looks like.

1. How to install eGPU Graphics Drivers in a system with a discrete GPU (dGPU

I can attest that this method works with my Asus ROG Flow Z13 with my Aorus 3090 gaming box egpu.

In case anybody stumbles on the same issue.
