An upcoming FW is going to be H2D 2254MiB/S for sure!

What bandwidth allocation does the enclosure USB-C 3.1 controller get with the new firmware? USB-C 3.1 is rated up to 10Gbps. Does this new firmware give any priority to the USB-C 3.1 attached devices to draw up to 10Gbps of the 32Gbps (31.2%) bandwidth on-demand (dynamically)?

The design is USB 3.0 Gen I, not GEN II 10GB.

When it is expected to be released? Was it tested already?

I'm having degraded host to device performance as well (mantiz is connected to dell latitude 7480; all dell's drivers are up to date):

CUDA-Z Report

=============

...

Memory Copy

Host Pinned to Device: 1303.71 MiB/s

Host Pageable to Device: 1158.23 MiB/s

Device to Host Pinned: 2541.79 MiB/s

Device to Host Pageable: 2092.33 MiB/s

Device to Device: 102.408 GiB/s

...

 

Does the Latitude have a U-series processor? It could be suffering from the OPI GT2 issue.

yes - cpu is core i7-7600u

not sure if OPI GT2 issue is the case. 

btw according to this  dell latitude 7480 got 4 lanes pci-e behind thunderbolt 3 port.

What is the approx shipping time?

 

Also anyone else from the UK, what was the import/customs cost you ended up paying, just so I can prepare my wallet...

I'd like to provide additional information when pairing the Mantiz Venus to a 2016 15" MacBook Pro. I get full H2D speed. This is the same firmware as everyone else has, 25.1. I noticed H2D speed on a different Thunderbolt x4 host before so this matter is more complicated than what we knew so far.

I disabled the x16 PCIe connection that powers the Radeon Pro 450 dGPU. This also eliminates error 12. With only the HD Graphics 530 iGPU, the GTX 980 Ti eGPU can accelerate the MBP 15" internal display smoothly. I'm putting together an article about using VR gear with an eGPU. Oculus Rift with Touch controllers are working very well with the USB 3.0 ports on the Mantiz Venus.

Request: CUDA-Z outputs from customer shipped units with Intel certified firmware

@other Venus Mantiz customers. I'd like to get some more customer sample data.

For those who purchased and received their units,  please post your CUDA-Z results. You guys have official Intel certified firmware.

We have one confirmed customer who has demonstrated the current Venus Mantiz firmware enables the TB3 controller's native 10Gbps USB-C interface which hosts the underlying SATA/USB/LAN ports. That USB-C controller being allocated 31.2% of the TB3 bandwidth with the remaining 68.8% being available for the eGPU. More details here.

We can then isolate if the majority of customer shipped units are seeing bandwidth results consistent with this finding.
