eGPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Good evening everyone.

I’m in the market for eGPU dock, but can’t seem to find one thats compatible with R9 Fury X. Does anyone know a compatible dock? I plan on pairing it with Razer Blade Stealth. 

Thanks.

I don't think anyone has made an eGPU dock that can accomodate a 120mm rad, you probably need to make something yourself, or find a different gpu.

Actually just found eGFX Breakaway Box 650 which allows you to fit one 120mm rad and is compatible with Fury X. Thanks tho

@GabenJr Anthony just reviewed one on Short Circuit

One question I have, can you VR off an eGPU from a thin and light laptop? And if so does it suck?

There will be a bottle neck and it won't be the best but its good enough for light vr

Τhis box costs 300$ you already have the Fury at hand? 

I mean it doesnt make much sense to get an eGPU sounds cool but you wont get the full performance and there might be compatability issues/bugs....

 

instead of spending 300$ on a dock I would build like a cheap desktop put the fury in and have better performance in games

to put it into other words if you spend the same amount of money for a desktop build you will get SIGNIFICANTLY better performance. 

e,g 

 

 

 

 

I7 4790k (cheap old CPU)

RTX 2070 (non super) 

 

And you get better framerate on 1440p than the egpu RTX2080ti which had ~30FPS on 1080p

That is what I thought.  Would be interesting to quantify but I am assuming the limited number of PCIe lanes in thunderbolt would limit how far you can push it.

The reason for the external GPU vs a tower is portability and presentation at a conference or tradeshow.  Flying and show up to a conference with a "gaming" or "RGBaf" system is a big negative (except for LTX or consumer shows of course).

 

I will have to see if I can locate one and test it out
