X1 Extreme Gen2 with Nvidia RTX 2060

Hello Lads

I just built my own egpu Setup with the ADT-Link R43SG-TB3.

My Graphics score on TimeSpy went from 2971 (dGPU GTX1650 MaxQ) to a 6304 (eGPU RTX 2060).

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)

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

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.
