Just wondering if as of 2019 the AORUS gaming box still has this HD2 problem and if there's a way to find out which firmware is running:
https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-RX580IXEB-8GD#support-dl-firmware

FYI, AIDA64 GPGPU Benchmark errors out with a memory access violation(wondering if I have bad RAM) so I can't even test that.

Have you found the answer? Does the Aorus gaming box still have the h2d issue or the firmware update solved the issue?

@everton-correa You can download the H2D firmware for each and every Gaming Box released so far on Gigabyte Support website. You'd need to flash the enclosure firmware in Windows with Intel Thunderbolt Software.

Thank you @itsage. Do you know what is the expected speed for h2d in the Aorus gaming box? My notebook has only 2 pci lanes for tb3 and I'm not sure how much speed I could expect from it.

Did anyone see real gaming performance gain between a 20GBps cable and 40GBps one?

My Dell precision 5530 is having i7-8850H with 32GB RAM, quite a performance beast speaking of a laptop, but with RX5700 I can only get average 39~40 FPS at 4K*0.8 resolution (setting at 4K but with 80% resolution modifier) with all  High settings except volume clouds in AC Odyssey.

A couple days ago I just realized that I was using a 20GBps cable so H2D/D2H speed was only 1.7~1.8GBps. This morning I got a 40GBps TB3 cable, which gets me 2.5GBps H2D/D2H speed, but in terms of gaming I hardly see any performance gain. I ran several runs of built-in benchmark in AC Odyssey and I only get 1 FPS gain on average.

Can someone explain?

@naticom, GPU performance is more about latency than bandwidth. You can find benchmarks in the forum showing that a PCIe x1 slot may give more fps than Thunderbolt even though Thunderbolt has more bandwidth. The bandwidth is useful for loading lots of data into a GPU, but that usually happens before game play starts (during loading).

@theo_rizqy_gunawan, Use tbt-flash in macOS to upgrade the firmware for your AORUS Gaming Box.

I’ve done the flashing, it “worked” like a charm. HD2 is increased. But when I restarted my MacBook, somehow it was not detected. The only way I could make it work again is by pulling out the gpu and put it again. When the system restarts, it happen again. Should I try the firmware from Gaming Box RX 580 since I’m using RX 560? Thank you.

Update: apparently it only occurs when I turn off my MacBook from macOS. It didn’t happen when I turned off my MacBook from windows. What might be the cause?

@theo_rizqy_gunawan, The Aorus box has a tendency to get "stuck" sometimes and usually disconnecting the box from all cables for 10-15mins helps.
