Been struggling to figure out which NVIDIA RTX GPU would work with these laptops. Originally tried a Razor Core X and returned it (as well as a EVGA 2080 Ti card since I couldn’t find any other eGPU cases that supports a 2080 Ti) since it was DOA.
I figured buying a GIGABYTE AORUS RTX 3080 Ti Gaming Box eGPU from Amazon, but I wanted to be sure it works before buying since the amount of stress i’ve gotten trying to get an eGPU to work with my laptop (Batch 5 recipient).
Almost any card will work, but you will see significant performance loss on a very high end card. If you have the choice between a 3080ti and a 1080ti, the 3080ti will absolutely perform better. If you are looking to buy a new card just to use with the framework, then I would consider a 3080ti to be beyond overpriced, but it will definitely work.
The reason why i was asking is that I needed a card for game dev and 3d rendering (along with some gaming), so i was going for the highest card possible since i want this to last a few years vs having to get a new card months from now (which I’d probably do if i got a 1080 ti)
