Hi I am trying to build an eGPU for running pytorch models. I think the best card for my needs would be the NVIDIA 2080 ti with the Razer Core X enclosure . I am a bit confused because there are several different brands (ASUS, MSI) who sell their version of the card but I don’t know how to tell which are compatible with the enclosure. Does anyone know if either of these cards are compatible:

Asus Nvidia (DUAL-RTX2080TI-A11G) 11GB RTX 2080 Ti Dual Advanced Edition PCI-E VGA Card

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11GB GDRR6 352-bit HDMI/DP Ray Tracing Turing Architecture Graphics Card (RTX 2080 Ti Ventus GP)




Razer Razer Core X

Both cards are compatible (running under Windows).

The 3-fan MSI card is a couple inches longer, so it will obviously be a tighter fit within the Razer Core X enclosure, but it should still work.
