    Hello Joikansai

    Cheers

    No max power consumption on max load even 2080ti is 300 watt, and core v2 can supply up to 375 watt (See here), and on egpu setting enclosure psu is totally serve for GPU (despite if you add some peripherals on it) unlike desktop that should supply other parts, core v2 can’t supply only Vega 64 unlike core x that has bigger psu.

    Ordered my "new" Blade 15 with 2080 now, yesterday at amazon. about 220€ below the official price. So thats fair ;)
    Waiting for my new baby again :D
    Will try to share some performance tests later on.

    So now I can share the first results!

    Starting with new benchmarks, at least from Forza Horizon 4, since I've shared the same here before.

    One is with fhd, internal display and setting to high. So similar to the screenshots shared earlier.
    And the other is on my external double-fhd screen and extreme settings.

    So you can see now the CPU is the bottleneck :D

    If you want me to test and share sth with you, just ask for it.

    //adding the older screenshots as refference here, too. -> Just for easy view.

    Wunderbar!!:smile_:
    But unfortunately egpu is lame on high FPS and bottleneck would be less on higher resolution, beside FH4 isn’t great in my experience.
    You may want to look at this, there’re all lame, MacBook is slightly faster because it has unique TB3 architecture that connects directly to cpu without going to pch controller that reduce the performance a bit unlike most laptops with dgpu. If you can’t see the pictures you can use google account to make easy account. Note the last benchmark was from egpu super tweaker, not TB3 egpu he use m2 slot for faster graphics connection and flash the card bios to unlock to bigger power limit cards and it’s really not recommended at all, you’ll loose the guarantee and may mess the device a lot.

    Yeah the egpu topic was closed for our discussion already. So I may should open a new thread,which might matching the content and thread titel much more. But I would like to proceed,our earlier started discussion here, too.

    //currently working a bit with afterburner and throttlestop to optimize.
    ///Afterburner often ends in BSOD and Thottlestop wont help, so far

    But still great performance
