X1 Extreme Gen2 with Nvidia RTX 2060
I just built my own egpu Setup with the ADT-Link R43SG-TB3.
The framerates more than doubled and The cooling of the CPU significantly improved since the dGPU is disabled.
I am quite happy with this setup and it seems to work quite well with Windows 10. Basically Plug and play
Currently I am using the integrated Laptop Screen so I am expecting a 10-20% increase in GPU performance when i get an external monitor.
The Specs of my Laptop are as follows:
Model: Lenovo X1 Extreme Gen2
OS: Windows 10 professional 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i7-9750H 6core x 2.6 - 4.5 GHz, Coffee Lake-H
RAM: 16GB DDR4-2666MHz Dual-Channel
dGPU: Nvidia GTX 1650 Max-Q (4GB GDDR5)
eGPU: Nvidia RTX 2060 (6GB GDDR6)
Connection: Thunderbolt 3 (PCIe 4x)
Did you end up disabling the internal gpu in the BIOS/UEFI to do this? Having troubles lately with egpu and discrete gpu arguing with each other.
