Thunderbolt 3 External graphics card :-?


#1

Thunderbolt 3

They did not mention nothing about the external graphics card connection possibility. I want just to know for a fact that is possible for this device or not…I have faith in this product (and my money…) I don’t want to have negative surprise after I buy the product.

“With Thunderbolt 3’s top speed of 40 gigabytes each second, your files MOVE. In a heart beat. It also lets you chain-connect multiple devices, such as two 4K displays or even to external graphics cards. Transfer data and take care of the charging simultaneously, you can also establish 10 GB/s Ethernet connection between two Thunderbolt 3 equipped devices.”

Yup, it does support eGPU, at least until now Eve always promised that. And they’re even considering making their own (not overpriced) eGPU box :slight_smile:

Definitely getting one when it comes out :heart_eyes:

I would definitely consider an eGPU if one became available. Razor has one, but the case alone costs $450 then you have to add a graphics card.

How well will the i7Y handle gaming with an external graphics card?


#6

Theoretically, eGPU is supported HOWEVER it must be programmed correctly in the UEFI, some laptops with Thunderbolt 3 required BIOS updates for it to work so I presume there’s something on the UEFI level that needs to be checked. I’m no hardware programmer so I cannot tell for certain.
