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.
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.
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
