Is there a sweet spot when to choose a nvidia graphics card?
From what I researched there are two bottlenecks using an egpu.
First because of the bandwidth limit in the thunderbolt 3 protocol and during the data transfer when you opt in using the internal display.
I purchased Galaxy Book Flex (10th gen intel i7-1065G7) and intend to use its internal display with an egpu. (Its display was the biggest draw for the purchase.) I expect a massive performance loss but still am not sure which gpu will have which performance for gaming. Most reviews I found are using RTX2080ti. Now from what I see, the performance loss seemed really not worth paying another grand for the card and the enclosure.
I also read each graphics card tier upgrade doesn't offer a big step up for the performance. Does it mean there is a sweet spot for the best bang for buck?
The next gen Nvidia 3000 series cards will be announced September 1.
The rumors make it sound like the price-to-performance ratio will be better with the new cards.
Yeah, I am excited to see how egpu will work with new 3000 series.
Also I was digging more here and found a good resource on my question:
On a side note, I ended up returning the galaxy book flex and ordered a razer blade stealth. Very excited about it!
