While eGPU enclosures have been around for many years, they have only recently started to gain popularity. When the first eGPU enclosures based on external graphics cards were introduced, they were far less popular than the first generation external graphics cards based on AMD and NVIDIA's discrete graphics cards. A good example of this is the Razer Core, which was the best selling eGPU on Amazon for almost a year.
eGPU enclosures based on AMD's Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards have seen a surge in popularity in the last six months. These enclosures have a few advantages over their NVIDIA-based counterparts. First, they support dual or quad Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, which means most of you can run three or four games at once. Second, these enclosures provide an external bridge for the PCIe slot.
In the Thunderbolt 3 era, the eGPU market has exploded. In fact, eGPUs have slowly become the most popular graphics card for PCs and Macs. They are now the most popular add-on for professionals and enthusiasts who are looking for the best workstation graphics card solution. The first eGPUs was based on external graphics card bridges, which use an internal PCIe slot as an I/O port to connect a graphics card to a host. That bridge was the SMA SM9600, which has been discontinued.
eGPU enclosures based on discrete graphics cards have slowly gained adoption. In fact, recently, a few of these enclosures based on AMD's Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards have become very popular. These enclosures typically can support up to four graphics cards, and can feature a full array of ports for cables, displays and peripherals. The latest of these enclosures is the Razer Blade 15, which I will be featuring in this review. I previously reviewed the Razer Blade 15, now with dual Radeon RX Vega's in March of 2018.
So, I thought I'd give my impressions of this setup. I've been running Windows 10 on it for a few months now, and this is my latest tweak. I will warn you, this is a long post, and most of this is opinion based. If you want to skip to the conclusion, just scroll to the bottom and read the conclusion.
We've actually got two XPS 13s here for this comparison, one upgraded to the latest 9th generation Core i7 with an RTX 2060, and the other with the 8th gen Core i7 with an RTX 2070. Both have had the keyboard replaced with the new model a while ago, and they have the same exact docking solution, but since the RTX 2070 has been tested here already, I was interested in testing the RTX 2060 with the latest laptop. I was really happy to find that the RTX 2060, even with its limitations, is a great eGPU solution for the XPS 13 and it has no problem keeping up with the RTX 2070, even with the same internals, as you can see in the following charts. The overall GPU performance is right on par with the RTX 2070, with no small surprises. The only problem I have with this laptop is that it's not made well. It's a little stiff and its fans do not die down, but it has been a great laptop for me. I do not think it's fair to compare it with the new XPS 13, however, as the old model had many issues with it. I hope they have improved the design of the XPS 13, as it's really the only good ultrabook out there for eGPU use. 827ec27edc
