I have a Lenovo Carbon X1 6th Gen and Aorus Gaming Box 1070 on which I've updated the firmware, installed the 1803 Windows update, etc. In Windows, the device is seen, can render stuff like 3DMark on an external display, etc. However, if I try and run apps like 3DMark or any games on the internal display, without an external device connected, the app's video freezes, while Audio in apps like Unigine Valley still play and the GPU is working hard. Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing  https://imgur.com/a/m5XKj4E
I also tried an HDMI Ghost Dongle with screen mirroring and that didn't work either 🙁

The weird thing is, in Linux on Ubuntu 18.04, rendering on the internal display works just fine.

Has anyone seen this before? Help, I want to use this for travelling and taking an external monitor is really not a great option!

You think it is better than the graphics dock?

My guess is that it's a software configuration issue. And that it would be better and more portable than the graphics dock.

Let me know if you figure this out. Having similar issues with my Lenovo laptops and the 1070.

Have you seen any of the Lenovos working with other eGPUs? Is this a Lenovo thing or a 1070 thing?

In this Video it works fine. Though i think it’s older Carbon x1.  Maybe it’ll be better to contact Gigabyte support, sounds to me firmware or video adapter incompatibility issue.
