@nando4, Thanks master. Another doubt haha, every laptop with TB3 support charge over TB3 port? I dont know if my laptop have this capability..
Thank you. Not all notebooks support charging over the TB3 port. Please check with your notebook manufacturer to see if yours supports it.
Me too having an X380 I'm looking at ADT-Link R43SG-TB3 as eGPU for occasional VR demos.
Want to ask if you solved your problem
Was reading your posts about using an M.2 to TB3 adapter to shift the SSD to an external enclosure and use the M.2 slot for the eGPU to obtain maximum performances (useful for VR). The X380 does have ans SD-card reader, and also a WWAN slot, but not sure how I can attach an M.2 cable without breack opening the chassis. Also I didn't find any info if I actually can use the WWAN port as M.2 (so to avoid shifting the SSD in an external enclosure), reading in the forum didn't find any experience.
Lenovo X380 Yoga, i5-8350U, 8GB RAM, NVMe x4 256GB SSD
Expected eGPU: TBD + Kfa2 GTX 1070 EX
@nando4 Hi I'm setting up another eGPU setup using R3G m.2 and TB3 (here). Currently, I could not get the CableCC/CY TB3 NVMe adapter to recognize any device attached to its m.2 port. TB Control Center only shows me 2 available ports when connected, and won't recognize the device inside the adapter. I've tried using two NVMe drives & my eGPU setup with the adapter connected to Hades Canyon & Yoga 370 TB3 port, but still got the same result.
Any idea why? I'm guessing that the TB3 NVMe adapter could be faulty, but after a while the NVMe drive I put inside gets warm, so it's definitely getting power from the adapter.
@ciforia , I have a JEYI LEIDIAN TB3 NVME adapter here, as was used in my sig's build, and have had it recognised without issue in all the systems it's been attached to: Elitebook 840 G5, Dell Precision 7510, when using a NVME SSD or M.2 eGPU adapter.
Suggest test a NVME SSD in your M.2-TB3 adapter in another TB3 system to confirm it and your TB3 cable are functional. If don't have a spare TB3 cable, can do a device detection test using just a USB-C cable.
I recently ordered the ADT Link TB3 module to use my RTX 2080 super as an egpu. But while connecting it to power I'm confused if I should use the given split 8 Pin to 2-8/6 Pin connectors or should I use one from the TB3 board and one directly from the PSU. I'm new to all the terminologies so I apologize for any confusion, I can attach pictures If needed.
Thank you in advance.
I am looking to do this with my Lenovo X1E v2. Both my M2 slots are currently in use. I like the idea of moving the OS to TB3 boot. Do you have any hardware photos of connecting the R43SG M.2 eGPU adapter to the laptops M.2 slot?
Hello, I’m new to the whole eGPU world so I’m looking for some information and advice. I have a T480 with an i7-8650u CPU and a mx150 dGPU. Most eGPU enclosures are either unavailable or overpriced where I live, so my only option is to build my own. I’m not looking to connect the GPU directly to the laptop’s M.2 slot, since a TB3 connection is much more convenient for me, even with the performance loss. All that I really care is to remove the power consumption and heat generated by the mx150 and have an eGPU deal with that, so the CPU and battery can perform better. When it comes to the case, PSU and GPU, I can pick those parts myself, but I’m a little bit confused about going from the R43SG board to the TB3 cable. From what I understand, and correct me if I’m wrong, all that I need to do is to connect the R43SG board to a M.2 enclosure and connect that enclosure with a TB3 cable to my laptop. This should be enough for my computer to at least detect the eGPU, or is there something else I’m missing here? I apologize if this is a common asked question or if I’m missing something obvious, but I just want to make sure before I start planning what to buy.
