ADT-Link R43SG-TB3

Hi, 

When I was first starting to look into eGPUs for my XPS-13, I bought an ADT-Link R43SG (not sure what model specifically, the PCI-E nvme connection one) and a cheapo USB-c to nvme adaptor.  That (obviously) didn't work, so I bought a razer Core X instead.  All good.

A while ago, I got hold of an HP thunderbolt dock that allowed daisy chaining, so I now have my razer core daisy chained off that.  Still all good.

 

Now though, I want to run a 10gbe PCI-e card as well as the egpu.  So I'm looking at the Jeyi thunderbolt dock (the thunderdock 7 mini) as mentioned in this thread a couple of times.

Just wondering if anyone is actually using an R43SG connected to the Jeyi thunderbolt dock, with another thunderbolt device daisy chained off it?  I don't want to fork out for it if it sounds like it should work, but no-ones actually tried it.  I've searched the forum for various combinations of 'r3g' and 'jeyi' but not found anyone using this setup.

Is there something similar to the DIY eGPU to PCIe Adapter but multiple PCIe cards (2 or 3)

Hey everyone 

I'm new to the word of eGPu. I've read through community builds, and haven't seen exactly this build with ADT-LINK TB3 on a MacBook Pro TB2 so I decided make this topic and give a look for specialist's.

I have MBP 15inch mid 2015 i7-4770hq-Intel Iris Pro-16gb ram running macOS Big Sur. Planning to use Rx570 4Gb or any other Nvidia GPU. 

Searching through internet I found an interesting option for a portable build which is ADT-Link R43SG-TB3                                                      ( https://aliexpress.ru/item/1005001386068882.html ) As I see, for this in order to work with my MBP I need to buy additionally PSU, TH3/TH2 adapter, and TH2/TH2 to connect directly to my MacBook. My question - after this chain of adapters how much of a performance I will loose and is this even going to work? On YouTube I found a video that a guy is using pretty much the same build except the MBP ( )

My goal is for this setup to work on a monitor connected, regardless of the OS&GPU that's going to be installed

Would kindly seek for anyone's advice, tips and what to expect at all. Thank you

@tung_tung, should work. You don't need ver 4.0 for Thunderbolt since Thunderbolt is limited to PCIe gen 3. You still need a separate power supply for the R43SG and GPU.

I have not tried the Jeyi Thunderdock 7 mini  .

One person tried it but had problems with the M.2 slot. https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/r43sl-r43sf-thunderdock-g7-mini/

Yes,thanks you, this why i asked you, i have read all comments in this topic.

Sound like bad news, maybe i'll change planning, R43SG 4.0 and connect to M.2 nvme pcie 4.0 and cutting a hole in bottom cover.

And i found a m.2 socket interface protection for usually install and removing too much may cause damage a m.2 socket.

Its description pcie x16 but i dont know what could it 4.0 or 3.0? not sure affect to 4.0 speed 64gbs?

@tung_tung, 4.0 speed is 16 GT/s per PCIe lane, but you don't need to worry about that since Thunderbolt will reduce it PCIe gen 3.0 speed 8 GT/s per PCIe lane (4 lanes).

An x16 GPU can be connected to any number of PCIe lanes: x1, x2, x4, x8, x16. With Thunderbolt or M.2 it will connect as x4.

Hello there

Did anyone had problems with seeing eGPU after wavlink? Briefly speaking, I use the same scheme as TS (EXP GDC + Wavlink + TB3) and I just can't see my eGPU neither in Thunderbolt Control Center nor in Device Manager. Here is link for a topic I started with specs. 

2021 16" Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 [11th,8C,H] + GTX 1060 @ 32Gbps-TB4 (Wavlink WL-UTE02 * ADT-Link R43SG) + Win11 [build link]

Hey guys is still eGPU option still viable if I have a mini ITX board with a 2nd M2 nvme in the back?  I have the extra GPU, extra SFX psu. What else would I need, if it's still viable?

Razer Core X + RTX 3080 + Asrock x570 ITX/TB3

I've just received my R43SG-TB3 and I was looking forward to test it out before a go out and buy a new GPU. Once everything is connected, I plug the TB3 cable to mu laptop, a green light blinks once on the board and stays off. The NVME to TB3 adapter has 3 green lights on.
GPU never boots up even though I see on my computer that a TB3 device has been connected.

What am I doing wrong?

This is my setup:

Please help me out Smile
