[Solved] To future eGPU users — do your homework first!
@boltoway, as i've said in my previous post, yes, generation 11 intel processors will have
--> integrated thunderbolt 4 controller for the Tiger Lake mobile processors
--> separate controllers for the desktop Rocket Lake processors
I think even with the separate controller the situation will be improved.
I'll post the articlle that states all of the above again here:
I'll have a desktop intel gen11 processor inside the laptop so it should use the external controller.
Heya, could you experts inform me, "Asus XG Station Pro" is still a good enclosure to buy? I found a good deal over Core X but I have noticed it has bit older Firmware compare to core x (in this forum's buyer guide). Do I have to worried about it? Thanks in advance.
@alone1i, I got one last year, it's done me well. I am using it for VR and it's very servicable.
I tried a razer chroma first but it was too loud. The XG station is dead silent in idle because of the external PSU.
Drawbacks are that it doesn't provide any real power to host and can only handle about 300w of GPU. In practice this hasn't been much an issue for me, the bottlenecks inherent in eGPU keeps even my 3070 from its peak wattage except in benchmarks.
I ended up swapping the fans for one noctua and now it's even more quiet.
I don't think there will be much progress in eGPU enclosure performance until there is a new standard that increases bandwidth/PCI lanes.
did anyone tried to connect ADT-Link R43SG-TB3 to THINKPAD E15 Gen 2 with 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-1115G4
can I connect this to my laptop? My laptop having a thunderbolt 4 compitability.
I have an OMEN 15-en0000 (1C099AV) Laptop, because for a laptop with a Ryzen processor to output from the tunderbolt output (link) only USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed.
Is it possible to somehow retrofit the laptop externally or internally the tunderbolt output (link)? I read something about EXP GDC adapters, Mini PCIe and M.2 variants, but I don't really understand how it works or works.
Are there any other ways? I am not a computer scientist, I do not know computers and I am not fluent in English. The target is audio discrete for audio playback which is Tunderbold 2 (Anttylope audio discrete core synergy core) output. can I ask you for help?
