eGPU With Multiple PCI-e slots for Rendering Vray or Octane

Hi,

Looking for an eGPU enclosure with two or more PCI-e slots.
I am currently using an iMac Pro for rendering(CPU) running Windows 10, and I want to move to a GPU rendering environment using Vray or Octane.
Any suggestions? Ideas?
I am also looking into stacking a couple of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with RTX NVLINK

Thank you.

@francisco_caires, The AKiTiO Node Duo is an affordable enclosure with two x2 PCIe slots. In order to install two large and powerful GPUs, you would need a better PSU and open the front of the enclosure. The iMac Pro has two Thunderbolt 3 controllers so you can look into multiple enclosures too. The main struggle will be whether Windows 10 can work with more than two eGPUs.

Otoy's Octane X renderer public beta for Mac OS arrives next week.

You can test it with your internal Vega 56 or 64 before scaling up with multiple GPUs.
