hello,

I am thinking about buying Auorus GTX 1070 gaming box, I have 15" RMBP with 750m. There seems to be to much hassle just to get it work with W10. Can I get it work without installing rEFInd ? I have W10 installed, can't I just plug and play with few modifications ? 

And would it only run external monitor with W10 ? Is it possible to run only with external without doing modifications or fewer modifications ?

And If I do use external display only, would the graphics performance be equal to other gaming laptops equipped with the GTX 1070 ?

Best review I've seen so far. Do you have any VR devices such as Oculus Rift or HTC Vive to test and see how well it runs with 90FPS in VR environment?

I run a Vive with a Supermicro box roughly equivalent to Mac Pro 5,1 + GTX 1070 FE.  Runs everything on high settings so far.  I've spent a bit checking out all the games and experiences - it crushes them all smoothly at high settings.

Will be testing on 6,1 and High Sierra beta once I get it installed.

Fantastic review, the future of egpus is looking bright, hopefully this provides much needed competition in the space!

Great review. I hope we'll eventually see better Nvidia support in macOS 10.13, but sadly not yet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Awesome in-depth review, really leaves not much to be wondered. I’d love to be counted in for the giveaway seeing as where I'm from the price of everything is jacked up + international shipping

Great review!

Would love to win this and make it work with my late 2016 15" MacBook Pro.

Thanks for the review and the giveaway!

Do the LED settings stick on a reboot to, say, macOS?
