XPS 13 9310 (2 in 1) with eGPU for 144fps light games (rocket league, ...)
I currently own a macbook pro 16 + a desktop "gaming pc". It's not first class but i only use it to play rocket league and very occasionnally, some other games (valorant, overwatch, ...)
Now, i'm thinking about switching from a mbp to a xps 13 9310 2 in 1, the latest that's been released. And while i'm at it, i'm thinking maybe i could use this as my all-in-one machine. Saying i can take it with me during my courses, at work, in my bed and sofa, plus playing my rocket league in good quality when i'm at my desk with the help of an eGPU.
The thing is, I will soon have a 144Hz monitor, so my main question is : is it a feasable thing to do to consider playing rocket league at good settings at 144Hz on an xps 13 with eGPU ? Is it realistic or should i just keep my current setup ?
The xps config :
11th Generation Intel® Core ™ i7-1165G7 processor (12MB cache, up to 4.7GHz)
13.4 "16:10 FHD + WLED touchscreen (1920 x 1200)
16 GB 4267 MHz LPDDR4x integrated memory
512 GB PCIe NVMe x4 Solid State Drive, built-in
2 Thunderbolt ™ 4 ports
What could i expect from this config, and maybe what eGPU/GPU could (if one even did) fit my needs ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
@blaise111, Which graphics card do you currently have from the gaming PC? 144Hz FHD is achievable in the games you mentioned. The i7-1165G7 with on-die Thunderbolt controller and TB4 ports should improve the Thunderbolt eGPU experience.
@blaise111, A GTX 1660 Ti in an eGPU enclosure such as the Razer Core X would work fine. The only issue I could see you running into would be if your particular card did not fit into the eGPU. What model card do you have?
