Hello everybody,

 

Does anyone has suggestions for a DIY build. Due to the recent skyrocketing prices in GPU's and enclosures, I'd like to know if there is a way to build an eGPU setup cheaper than buying an enclosure:

One that also offers a 65W+ Power delivery

I've been thinking in

 

 

 

ADT-Link R43SG M.2  50 USD + JEYI Thunderdock 7 Mini 110 USD

 

The downside here is that the JEYI dock only offers 60W using one cable

(are docks that offer Nvme + tb3+ 65W+ PD [already tested?])

 

 

Razer core X Board  BOARD , but is 200 USD 

Almost a price of a full enclosure

 

Buy a Sonnet EFG 550W, currently out of stock for ~250USD

 

Any suggestions?

 

My laptop is an X1 Yoga Gen 5 2 tb3 x4

 

 

Thanks

 

 

 

 

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

JEYI Thunderdock 7 Mini is one of the rare M.2 TB3 dock/adapter that I've seen that currently offers PD > 15W

An alternative would be to purchase a TB3 enclosure with PD > 65W, examples in the buyer guide,  and use a PCIe to M.2 adapter to attach a M.2 drive to it, or directly insert a video card into the PCIe slot.
