hey guys I recently returned my Lenovo yoga 13" 720 because it had an x2 tb3 and I didn't like the flippable keyboard thing. Are there any detachables upcoming with tb3 x4 for egpu usage (with quad core processor). 

I was looking at the Acer Switch 7 Black Edition but Acer is tight lipped about tb3 even through video reviews have mentioned it.  Another possibility is the hp zbook x2 g4 but it's heavy and expensive and has the 16:9 display ratio I don't like.  

Any others upcoming or thoughts on the ones I mentioned?

Yeah, the Zbook X2 G4 is pricey. It sounds pretty awesome when fully configured, but wow is it expensive. More expensive than an OmenX decked out with a 12-core i9 and a 1080Ti, as it turns out...

During development of the EVE V, many people expressed interested in eGPU use. It's a worthwhile consideration imo; it's a Surface Pro with Thunderbolt 3 in a sense.

I took a look at it earlier and while it's not bad I'd feel odd with a dual core y processor instead of a quad core processor.  I think it'll be a huge bottleneck
