ADT-Link R43SG / R43SL / R43SF + JEYI ThunderDock 7 mini?
this is my first post here but im not new to this board. I read tons of topics and builds here (Im interested in building a eGPU enclosure myself) and I have to say the content and community here is amazing!
Its a TB3 Dock with a M.2 Slot inside.
I think its not too expensive aswell if these Ports are useable while connected to a eGPU
@matze, This Thunderbolt 3 dock is an intriguing choice for hosting an M.2 eGPU adapter. One of the missing feature when going the M.2 NVMe eGPU route is no expansion I/O and Power Delivery. This JEYI ThunderDock 7 mini works as a nice TB3 dock that may also host an eGPU through M.2 socket.
@itsage, thx for the reply.
Sorry for the bad explanation. My hole idea behind that dock is just to host an eGPU through the M.2 socket and maybe have some additional ports wich the dock delivers. I cant find any reviews of this tb dock/m.2 enclosure but I have some hope because it uses the intel JHL7440 chip.
Do you think its a good idea to try this instead of Samsung X5 or wavlink enclosure?
@matze, This dock is a better choice (compared to Samsung X5 and Wavlink). I'd be curious how the Power Delivery would work. Expansion ports should work alongside eGPU adapter in the M.2 slot. Being a Titan Ridge controller, some functionalities may work with USB-C hosts too. Point is you have a lot more flexibility with this dock.
I think i will try this combined with R43SG. Maybe I can make a good deal in the next few weeks (black friday or holidays).
Hopefully this will work with my HP Elitebook 850 G7 wich finally has PCIe x4 TB3 ports.
