Look forward to hearing more details, especially interested in how peripherals behave - as mentioned my Razer Core V1s ports are useless for keyboard and mice.

GTX1060 + AKiTiO Thunder3 + Win10
GTX1070 + Sonnet Breakaway Box + Win10
GTX1070 + Razer Core V1 + Win10
Vega 56 + Razer Core V1 + macOS + Win10

Wonder the same thing, from my current understanding the only solution is to save bandwidth for USB stuff, which results in a hit in performance, in which case I rather have a USB hub too and have two wires plugged

I have a m.2 external attached to the lid of my 9575.  I'll be interested in testing the performance of this if switched from C (with 3.0 support) to a daisychained 3.

What is a "C (with 3.0 support)"?
What is a "daisy chained 3"?

Mac mini (2018), Mac Pro (Early 2008), MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5, Sonnet Echo Express III-D, Trebleet Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe M.2 case

I meant a USB 3.1 (type A or C) m.2 drive enclosure attached to a 3.0 port of the gaming box or the USB C virtual link on the card.

I meant a USB 3.1 (type A or C) m.2 drive enclosure attached to a 3.0 port of the gaming box or the USB C virtual link on the card.

The 3.0 port should give up to 430 MB/s.
An Asmedia ASM1142 USB 3.1 gen 2 controller (PCIe 2.0 x2 or PCIe 3.0 x1) would give up to 765 MB/s.
I guess The USB-C of the video card should give around 912 MB/s, like the USB-C ports of a Thunderbolt 3 controller (PCIe 3.0 x2 or greater).
But those assume your M.2 device is NVMe. An M.2 AHCI/SATA device would be limited to 540 MB/s.

Of course different OS's and hardware and benchmarks will give different results. Devices further down a chain will be slightly slower.

I think we're still missing information about the USB controller of the RTX cards unless it was posted to a different thread?
https://egpu.io/forums/gpu-monitor-peripherals/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-usb-c-port/
In the screenshot, it appears the USB controller is a PCIe function of the Nvidia card (it's not a separate PCIe device under its own PCIe bridge). All functions of a device share the same PCIe link speed and width. Therefore, the PCIe link speed and width of the RTX USB controller will be PCIe 3.0 x16 in a normal graphics slot or PCIe 3.0 x4 in a Thunderbolt 3 eGPU. 
https://github.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/issues/50
I haven't seen benchmarks that show the performance of the RTX USB controller.

Mac mini (2018), Mac Pro (Early 2008), MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5, Sonnet Echo Express III-D, Trebleet Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe M.2 case

Side note to all, you can purchase it on Amazon now.

It's in stock 2/17, for $649.99 - same as the preorder thread.  (which isn't a group buy)
If you order through the preorder thread you don't pay sales tax unless you are in CA, and there are 'surprise gifts' whatever those are.
(We'll find out - I ordered one through the preorder).
