[Solved] This is my egpu firstrike score(internal display). Is this normal?
Laptop : Aorus X5 V7
CPU : I7-7820HK
igpu : Non-optimus
dgpu : GTX 1070
egpu : RTX 2080 black monster oc d6 8GB
interface : razer core x , thunderbolt 3
OS : Windows 10 - 18362
(internal display) dgpu firestrike score : 16,500
(internal display) egpu firestrike score : 12,271
@yhk02240224 do you have any possibility to do a test on an external screen? I see some performance loss on my internal screen myself as well but those numbers look a little far off.
@yhk02240224 are you absolutely sure the 12271 is from your eGPU? According to notebookcheck this score is very close to the internal GTX 1070 score. The external screen rating seems to be close to what Enki_bubu got on a similar build? Still looks like the card has a high performance loss from eGPU enclosures in general.
I think there's something big wrong with my laptop. I'm very similar to the setting of Enki_bubu got, but there's an overwhelming performance gap.(Enki_bubu : External display egpu graphics : 21,113, my External display egpu graphics : 17,800) I think that's because my laptop is Non optimus. I don't have igpu.
@yhk02240224 are there any BIOS/UEFI settings that may limit TB3 bandwidth or performance?
How was it with a fresh Windows install? Maybe an update of something severely broke something for you?
Maybe you could give a live stick or external drive installation of Windows a go and see how that performs. I think rufus can create on the go Windows installations on USB volumes.
There are no settings related to TB3 in Bios/UEFI settings. And I didn't install Windows. This laptop is not Mac. This laptop has Windows 10 since its birth. This means that the manufacturer installs Windows 10 and ships the laptop. My OS is all up to date. I made all the updates. Nvidia and TB3 drivers are all up-to-date.
This is my egpu bandwidth. (P.S. I'm going to sleep. It's dawn here. Good night)
I have no intention of using egpu for external display. The reason why I bought the RTX 2080 is to use it on my laptop display. Unfortunately, TB3 causes a lot of performance losses on the internal display. So I'm considering connecting egpu to the Nvme M.2 slot. My laptop has Nvme M.2 slot. Nvme M.2 has less performance losses than TB3. Right?
So I’m considering connecting egpu to the nvme M.2 slot. My laptop has a Nvme M.2 slot. Nvme M.2 has less performance losses than TB3. Right?
So if primary use of the eGPU is gaming and the candidate system has an free M.2 slot, then a M.2 eGPU is recommended over TB3. M.2 eGPU adapters are also quite cost effective, starting from US$20:
Can I ask you a question? If my motherboard and M.2 adapter are not compatible, I heard that the motherboard can be burned down. Is this a joke? Or is it true?
@yhk02240224 A motherboard may have firmware containing a whitelist that only allows certain types of M.2 devices to be used. There are instructions elsewhere (not here) to modify the whitelist of some motherboards. The whitelist is usually for WiFi cards. I don't think whitelists have ever affected an NMVe slot?
There is an extra Nvme M.2 slot in my laptop. The manufacturer has created a separate Nvme M.2 slot in the laptop to allow users to mount additional SSDs. That is, the extra M.2 slot I have is not for a WIFI card. Therefore, my M.2 slot is less likely to have a whitelist.
Is there any case that the M.2 adapter was connected to the motherboard and burned down?
