Razer Core X Chroma insufficient Power to run MSI Trio X Gaming RTX 2080 Ti
I have a similar configuration:
- MacBook pro-15-inch 2018
- MSI NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080Ti GAMING X TRIO
- A small adapter 8pin PCI Express to 2 X PCIe 8
I was able to install the drivers and use the RTX 2080Ti on a 4k screen.
Nvidia GeForce Experience works well.
I haven't tried to install Razer GpuSwitcher on my computer.
May I know if it has something to do with my splitter? My situation was like if I connect the two heads from Core X to the gpu the lights will turn on, core x is recognised by the laptop. But if I use the splitter and then connect to the laptop, nothing happens.
I finally find a discussion on this subject.
the link for the addapter is not available for sale anymore, is that adapter one and the same with this one?
there is also this adapter here
specifing below that *This is a GPU 8 pin to GPU 8 pin splitter cable (GPU to GPU), not a CPU 8 pin to 2 X PCIe 8 cable (CPU to GPU), both are very similar Masu.*
What adapter do you guys think i should buy, and if it will work in the first place with this card. (I wouldn't want to buy something that doesn't work).
Thanks to anyone in the comunity who can provide advice.
Did you manage to make it work,
I tried it with Gygabite RTX 2080 ti Aorus Gaming OC, and Zotac 2080 ti AMP (both with 2x8pin connexion) they are both recognised (friend's cards not for sale unfortunately), however could't work on RTX 3080 TI Gaming X Trio (3x 8 Pin), and ROG Strix 3080. Te 3080 FE worked however.
I hope others will publish successful installs with 3x8pin GPUs.
I'm glad to report it WORKED. After connecting the adapter,
lspci started showing the NVIDIA GPU. The 460 driver installed fine and
nvidia-smi is displaying the expected info.
I haven't yet installed
PyTorch etc. but will do so on Friday. I'm moving today so nothing will get done on the eGPU front.
This is the cable I'm using, by the way: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072JR4H3N . I split the "R3" connector of the Razer Core X Chroma. I'm planning on submitting the build as soon as I can with all the details.
