Hey - 

do you guys think this RX 6600 XT ITX from Asrock would work (+MacOS)?

 

ASRock Challenger ITX Radeon RX 6600 XT Video Card RX6600XT CLI 8G - Newegg.com

Mac Mini 2018+Gigabyte Gaming Box RX580 8G.

Happy to confirm that Gigabyte the ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 Graphics Card works perfectly in the Aorus Gaming Box with no modification required:

3DMark TimeSpy 3060 7546

Thanks for your post... I ended up doing the same thing... dropped the ASUS Dual 3060 in here for similar performance results

Originally I was going to try the 3060 Ti, but I had read that some people had it pull too much power if it was charging the laptop at the same time... 

After playing around with it in the 3060 config.... I caved and decided I'd be happier with just a bit more power and upgraded it to the Dual Mini 3060 Ti, and then just reduce the Wattage via Afterburner if I had issues. (its funny how you can pretty much use half the power, but still get 80-90% the graphics power on these cards.)

Happy to report the Dual Mini 3060 ti works just fine for me, (I'm using it with a Surface Pro 8) and performance is quite good. It uses about 30-40 more watts than the 3060 (non ti), but seems fine, although for normal use, I'm tweaking the power back a little anyways... Its pretty easy to bump clock speeds up and reduce power limits at the same time without hurting any performance drastically.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@cameron_butterfield, there's quite a bit of excitement over eGPU attachment with the new Microsoft Surface systems. Did you want to share the good news of your Microsoft Surface Pro 8 + RTX 3060 Ti @ 32Gbps-TB4 eGPU implementation by submitting a build guide?

I have the EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC Gaming for my AORUS eGPU. However, when I tried to set it up, I can't get it past the cables. See pictures below:

 

It seems that the ASUS model doesn't have that issue? Is someone able to confirm?

@boltoway,

I see so your ASUS 3060 isn't a wide as mine based on the photos above? If you have the exact product link, may you share it? With the RTS 3060, I found there are so many variation depending on which brand makes it. This way, I can order the correct one this time so it can fit.

The 3060 Ti will most likely need to be power-limited or have the stock PSU of the Gaming Box upgraded as they can be very power hungry. 

When you say this, is it because the Ti model is more powerful in terms of specs? From what I can find online, it uses 8GB of VRAM compared to 12GB to the non-TI model, but it's more powerful.
