@nando4, Thanks for the information, really helpful. Please, let me know your insights about the situation below:

I've bought the R43SG-TB to use as an eGPU with NVidea RTX to play Call of Duty warzone, I'm experiencing FPS varying from 15 fps to 65 fps which causes lots of LAG.

Do you know if there are software optimizations that can be made to improve this performance (stabilization)? I already set all the graphics configs to prioritize performance over quality but does work. (I do not want to connect by M2, too much open stuff to be a portable thing, also I do not want more than 60FPS, so I'm looking for a workaround to get there).

Thanks

Setup:

2018 Lenovo X1 6th Gen

ADT-Link R43SG-TB3

Dell DA-2

AMD RX480

Issue:

Ok so the PSU has the green light, I've got two green lights on the ADT-link (briefly had a red light on D3, but removing the bridge on the J pins fixed that). GPU lights come on, but not the fans. Tried all the other switch combinations and triple checked the cables.

The TB3 software manager detects the ADT-Link adapter, but the GPU doesn't show up in device manager and is not detected by the AMD driver installer. The TB3 manager says the ADT-link adapter is on bus power (not sure if just referring to the NVME to TB3 dongle or the entire device).

Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to get this working. Thanks so much!

Currently a list of SSD enclosures of varying compatibility with different NVMe to PCIE boards is scattered in various M.2 builds and discussions across the forum. It'd be nice to have a consolidated list somewhere.

I seem to be having the exact same issue, could it be an AMD incompatibility? I'm using an RX580 in my setup.

@abdullah_khan, The TB3 board needs downstream Power Delivery from a Thunderbolt 3 port. Thunderbolt 2 connection does not provide Power Delivery and therefore the R43SG-TB3 cannot power on.

@itsage, so then how can we plug a razer core x with apple TB3 to TB2 to plug it into a TB2 powered MacBook, then it shall not work with them too..

@abdullah_khan, You compare two different power arrangements. The ADT-Link R43SG-TB3 requires downstream Power Delivery from a host to power on. The Razer Core X has a PSU that powers its Thunderbolt 3 mainboard and can even provide upstream Power Delivery to the host when applicable.

@abdullah_khan, use a JEYI Thunderdock 7 Mini  + ADT-Link R43SG + Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter + 20V PD adapter. The Thunderdock provides upstream power courtesy of the PD adapter.

Alternatively, consider TB2 enclosures from https://egpu.io/best-egpu-buyers-guide/#tb2-enclosures which would cost less .
