Hi!

I am really looking forward to you posting pics of a working X1 Carbon 5gen + Mantiz eGPU setup. Please don't keep us waiting Smile

Thanks in advance!

   

There's no problem at all, I'll do it on Monday, the Venus is in our office.

Great to hear that! If this is possible, could you also post some benchmarks for the X1C2017+ eGPU setup?
And also a different question: will the Mantiz Core be only available in gray? Or is a black version also planned

I meant: Mantiz Venus, not Mantiz Core Smile

Does it work well with the Razer Blade Stealth? I'd definitely get this instead of the Razer Core 

I'm thinking about getting a gtx 1050 for whatever egpu I get

Does anyone know why none of the newer eGPU enclosures (including the Mantiz) are putting a second Thunderbolt 3 port on their designs for daisy chaining of other devices?

Is it just for the cost-savings (I appreciate it's a competitive market), or is there a technical reason to not do so?

Since there are no TB3/TB2 hubs/port multipliers in existence, it's a limitation I wish someone would overcome.

I suspect they're running the USB and LAN ports off the passthrough, using it as USB3.1 connected to an internal hub. I can't confirm this, however.

HI. TBT3 chip is with two Lanes. we had use both of these two lanes, to have Daisy chain TBT3 output, we need to add the 2nd TBT3 chip on the board. Since we had already multi ports in the IO cards, we gave up this idea for the cost saving.

I would love to see the EVGA 980ti hybrid water cooling system placement inside the Venus as the 120mm intake is coming from the bottom but the Node is coming from the front.  If anyone could provide picture would be highly appreciated because I have that card laying around, I believe @itsage has one as well.  If you could kindly test out for me that would be great!

@itsage, as the Mantiz Venus is equipped with a TI83 chip, have you already checked if its CUDA-Z H2D bandwidth is the same as the Node?
