Immense levels of buyers remorse 8/26/2019 1:40:53 PM

Pros: - When it works, it's good.
- 1080 card is pretty quick, even with the thunderbolt bottleneck.

Cons: - Very loud.
- Will not work with quadro cards.
- Frequent driver issues (caused by windows update)
- Obnoxious lights, couldn't be disabled with early drivers, but they've fixed it.

Overall Review: For a while, Nvidia had a few drivers that could run both a quadro and geforce at the same time. This was great for cuda applications or using the laptop screen in conjunction with extra monitors.

But this broke just about any time windows update did it's thing. More recently, the drivers that could handle this have disappeared and nothing I've tried has worked.

Feels like a 50/50 split between uptime and dealing with support calls to Gigabyte and Nvidia, with nary a solution in sight.

I can't honestly recommend this to anyone, but I imagine it would have gone a lot better if my laptop didn't have an nvidia quadro built in.

Good performance, bad reliability 1/14/2019 1:17:55 AM

Pros: - Great gaming performance. Easily able to handle anything you throw at it.
- Tiny footprint.

Cons: - Terrible power supply reliability. Mine blew out after less than a year.
- Gigabyte's warranty service is awful.
- Gigabyte's drivers and software are worse than bad.
- Definitely not plug-and-play. You will be spending a lot of time on egpu.io to figure out the best way to get the thing to work.

Great Performance, Arrived Very Quickly 12/20/2018 3:34:42 PM

Pros: I had the 1070 version of this and liked it so much I wanted to upgrade. I accidentally left off 1 letter from my street name; the same day the delivery company could not deliver it the seller (Bleepbox) contacted me to let me know what was going on and gave me the info I needed to tell the delivery company to make sure they had the right address-very helpful!

Unlike my 1070 version this one is much quieter; not sure if I just got unlucky with the 1070 or they improved the design.

With a MacBook Pro 2018 15 inch I can use it in bootcamp with the internal display by hot plugging or use an external display by having it plugged in before windows boots (if you have it plugged in before windows boots the internal screen is disconnected).

Cons: I have no interest in running it from macOS but since Nvidia cards are still not supported by Apple in EGPUs I assume it would require some extra work.

Worked for 1 night. 10/13/2018 6:57:04 AM

Pros: Set up was easy, XPS 9575 recognized immediately, disabled internal GPU, ran Fallout 4 in glorious 1080 for hours.

Cons: Turned on the next morning, XPS could not locate the Aorus, Aorus GPU fan/lights would not turn on. Tried unplugging, plugging, software updates, system restore, let the box sit for hours, nothing. PSU fans ran on the Aorus but nothing else. Same problems as others have detailed online. Really wanted this thing to work. Returned for refund.

Worried at first, but ended up being impressed! 5/9/2018 8:33:17 AM

Pros: -Easy connectivity, essentially works like a docking station!
-instant performance boost once drivers and everything is installed
-Keep your laptops protability!

Cons: -Thunderbolt 3 cable seems short

Overall Review: I used this with a MSI GS63VR 6RF gaming laptop, the thunderbolt software said eGPU's aren't compatible with this computer (what worried me at first) but the PC recognizes the card anyway and runs with it. Just update your drivers and watch your performance increase!
Update - Also works well with an Asus Q524U, thunderbolt software didn't have the incompatibility prompt like the GS63VR had.

Positively amazing! 4/29/2018 7:22:10 PM

Pros: Multiple monitor setup on a very basic laptop
Easy 1 cable connection
Gaming capability

Cons: led lighting can't be turned off.
I lose track of what screen my mouse is on. (seriously, 5 giant screens can make a game of hide and seek of it).

Overall Review: There was some pain in getting this setup. The Thunderbolt port on my work laptop was never installed correctly, so I had to get that updated as well as the firmware. Once I did though, Wow! Five monitors hooked up to a ultra book! Nice. My workspace blows away anything I ever had my entire career. 1 34" - 4 27"s (when I'm done).

Not VR Ready!! Box says it is but USB doesn't work for Rift (or anything) 4/27/2018 9:50:29 AM

Pros: Great to be able to plug in an egpu to a laptop and drive Rift or 2x4k montiors @60Hz

Cons: USB ports are unusable. Can't even run keyboaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarone (<- see, that's what happens.) Can't even run a keyboard alonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnne (<- ugh), and don't even think about using the 3 USB 3.0 ports on your "VR Ready" gaming box for the 2xSensor and 1xHeadset the Rift requires. See the discussion here: https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/aorus-gaming-box-gtx-1070-usb-not-working-properly/paged/2/.

Now plan to buy an additional big heavy TB3 dock to carry along with your mobile VR rig :(

Overall Review: If you read the discussion on that link, the throughput limit seems like a reasonable explanation. So I put in a trouble ticket requesting switchable mobile and desktop modes where in mobile you could throttle back the gpu so it still supported the rift but allowed use of the USB too for the headset and sensors. Back in desktop mode devote full throughput to the gpu and turn off USB unless the charging port could be left on. I doubt it will help since this was a problem on the 1070 box too and they still haven't addressed it

Do NOT purchase if you plan to use this with the 2017 Razer Blade Pro HD (Stealth variant works fine) 4/3/2018 10:59:32 AM

Pros: I can make it work through a long complicated process and it works fine, but as you will see below, Razer has acknowledged that the unit does not function with their 2017 Razer Blade Pro HD (internal GTX 1060).

Works fine on my Intel NUC, just play and play.

Cons: Does not work at all with the 2017 Razer Blade Pro HD, so it's a paper weight for me now, quite disappointed to say the least,

Overall Review: If you are stuck with it, this is the only way to make it work with the above

Here's how you can make this work if you are stuck with it and can't return it,

ok, so I did it in this order

have the box plugged in and connected to the display

then changed the screen Hz to 60

then went into device manager and disabled the gtx 1060

device manager is different now

there is a up/down button to push to enable/disable

then I changed in windows itself under Display Settings from the desktop I changed Multiple displays to Only show 2

meaning the second display

then I went back to the device manager and disabled the Intel gpu

and then the box worked fine, my scores in FS went from 9500 to almost 14000

so quite a large improvement

the internal display is totally off

so you would have to go backwards for what I did to get it going again
