    Thunderbolt 3 vs any other way EGPU

    I posted about this earlier, I have the exact same laptop. Currently my understand is this: Having a EGPU is gonna be much more powerful then what a 1050ti can do. A lot of people think the performance drop is a big takeaway, but the only people I see really needing a EGPU is when they having a laptop that can't game or is horrible at gaming period. Even with the performance drop, its gonna be worth it. Theres plenty of EGPU enclosures that are relatively cheap that'll work out, just make sure that the graphics card you get can fit into the EGPU enclosure. In terms of price, you gotta think about it like this: Getting a EGPU with lets say a 1070 or 1080 or 1080ti plus the enclosure is gonna cost you around 1000 to 1300. A lot of people say at that point you might as well get a desktop, but that's not a option for a lot of people, and lets be honest if you looking at getting a EGPU its because you need something portable. Getting a LAPTOP with the same 1080 or 1070 is gonna run you like 1500 to up to 4k for the higher end ones like the titan with a 1080. The cheapest I found was 1500 with a 1070, used of course.

    wouldnt i be in danger of damaging the graphics card if I tried to squeeze it in, don't they need space to cool? As far as I know thats why a lot of higher end laptops tend to get bulkier to get more fans in to cool those gpus

    I was thinking about getting the Aorus gaming box that comes with a 1080. My friend was willign to sell me a 1080ti for a good price since he plans on getting a 2080ti but I dont know if size is a issue, not sure if egpu enclosures or graphics cards come in different sizes.

    EGPU performance vs laptop 1050ti

    I just made a thread with a picture, another user helped me confirm it was actually a TB3. Heres a site that says it either comes with a TB3 or without, I don't think theres a inbetween https://laptopmedia.com/review/dell-g3-17-3779-review-is-this-the-best-value-17-inch-laptop-for-gaming/ I might've just had an older model before they changed their policy?, I only bought it for 950 on a black friday deal on a lesser known website so I wouldn't be surprised if I got trolled

    we figured it out it actually does have a TB3. Most sites i've looked at shows it with either no USBc or specifically saying theres a optional USBC with thunderbolt 3 .. i hope

    Cool, thanks for the concern though, I guess this case was a outlier but I'm sure you would've stopped me from spending like 800 dollars of worthless money if Dell was accurate.

    I can probably open it up and send a picture, the original site I bought it from advertised it as having one. Its fine you guys know way more then me. and who knows I might've been trolled honestly someone knew i was gonna wanna upgrade at some point
