It is fairly certain indeed that the demand we can make for 2 different docks is not quite enough for the big players (those we need to partner with, with the necessary technical capabilities).
It would seem though that an additional potential solution would be that the lightweight is a modular component to the middle part, being that the lightweight could be detached from the middleweight to take it with you, but it would lack certain functionalities the bigger one has.
Personally fully agreeing with this statement.
It would be interesting to know, What advantages you, and other people like you see in having an integrated eGPU dock over daisy chaining the dock to an eGPU.
My question comes from the POV that if you e.g. have middleweight dock and a separate eGPU, you can still take the middleweight with you. It seems the use case for taking a big heavyweight doesnt support taking it with you, at all.
While that is acceptable for majority of the time for people who want to have a workstation type of dock, would it not sometimes be beneficial to retain the option for mobility?
Currently it would also seem reasonable to suspect that a combined system vs. separate ones would not induce any extravagant cost savings either, but @Xinjie can surely provide a better evaluation of this.
So once again; why dock with eGPU over dock+eGPU?
Will come back to comment more later, now back to see the production!
