Hey guys,

I’m an actual newbie in this eGPU thing. Short things to me. I am a project manager and have to travel for 2-3/5 days a week. So I always have my notebook with me (Asus Rog Zephyrus, i7-7700HQ / 1080GTX, 24GB RAM). 
at Home I have a Desktop pc with an AMD Ryzen 7, RTX2070, 32GB RAM. 
i love gaming, so not high end. More games like World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo 3, Destiny 2 and a lot of more Smile

so well to my question. 
I‘m thinking about to replace my desktop and my notebook to get a new notebook with a good eGPU. 
you guys have any suggestions for a good working system? I mean 4-8k€ shouldn’t be a thing. So I’m open for all. Maybe a important detail. 
my monitors are 34“ 3440 x 1440 Pixel and 27“ 2560 x 1440 Pixel. 

some expierences are welcome too! 
Thanks and greetings 

Sascha

@sascha_losch, Do you need a dGPU while away from home? If not, a Tiger Lake laptop is a very good Thunderbolt eGPU host.

Thanks for your reply. No i don’t need the eGPU when I’m away from home. Only for replacing my desktop when I’m back home Smile I will have a look at this!

@sascha_losch, I've found the larger footprint of 15" laptop to have better cooling. For example, the HP Spectre 15 with i7-1165G7 ran very cool and quiet with stable boost. The MSI Prestige 14 EVO with i7-1185G7 is much louder in my experience so far. There are a lot of new Tiger Lake laptops coming out. I'd personally vouch for the LG Gram 16/17 with Tiger Lake.

At first I had a look on a razer blade 15 with this speccs 

  • Intel Core i7-10875H
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 15.6" 240Hz QHD
  • GeForce RTX 3080
  • 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD

but then I’ve read about some technical problems. That the connection speed from a usb-c connected eGPU isn’t fast enough to bring good power to a monitor. For example

RTX 3080 (mobile) - usb-C to eGPU (packed with RTX3080) - both monitors connected. They said the frame rates are dropping sometimes for no reason. Any thoughts about that? I mean the mobile GPU is only for traveling. And the eGPU for sitting at home doing home office and Play some games. 

btw the Spectre is a pretty nice thing!

Some laptop hosts you may consider :

 

If you want a 2 in 1 :

HP spectre x360 14" or 15" (3:2)

Lenovo yoga 9i 14" or 15" (16:9)

 

If you want the best performance without a dedicated GPU :

Schenker vision 15" (16:9)

Razer book 13" (16:10)

 

If you need a medium-end dedicated GPU to be able to travel while gaming :

MSI summit 14" or 15" (16:9)

Razer blade stealth 13" (16:9)

 

The Razer Blade 15 seems like a true powerhouse and I would argue that if the weight/size doesn't bother you, it should be enough to play all the games you mentioned without the need for a eGPU. The same goes for all the high-end gaming laptops out there (with RTX 30)
