Thinking of upgrading my laptop. Could anyone recommend an "fair cheap" priced laptop (13 - 15") with good IPS screen for watching video and has a Thunderport 3 port that is compatible with this EGPU enclosure please?
Great unit (bulky though). plenty of USB 3.0 ports plus the SSD option. Got this a while back for £199, running a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Windforce OC 8GB in it via Thunderbolt 3. Shame it's for students only
Had my eye on one of these for a while. Wasn’t prepared to pay £300 odd though. Especially as my Dell XPS 13 9360 quad only had 2xlane and my same for thunderbolt only MacBook Pro. However I’ve just read that it’s ok as long as you use an external display (only about 10% loss) so bit the bullet :) thanks op and will dump rx580 in it and swamp my r9 270 back to my desktop (as just don’t game nowadays outside of Xbox one X)
Yup, thunderbolt 3 only. Thunderbolt 2 can work with an adapter but that's it, nothing else does PCI-E over a cable.
I wish I could hook this up to my i5-8250U laptop, but I've only got a USB 3.0 port... I guess this would only works with Thunderbolt 3 ports, no chance me using an adaptor due to the bandwidth difference on the port. Would had loved to hook up a 1080 ti and SSD..
