    Yes, the performance changes.

    I did some test using unigine valley, using:

    Internal Display
    1 - 1070 max q (1080p)
    2 - 1080 egpu on internal display (1080p)
    3 - 1080 egpu on internal display with OC (1080p)

    External display
    4 - 1080 egpu on external display (1080p)
    5 - 1080 egpu on external display with OC (1080p)
    6 - 1080 egpu on external display (4k)

    Desktop 1080 GPU
    7 - 1080 desktop (1080p)
    8 - 1080 desktop (4k)

    Results are:
    Internal
    1 - fps: 78 (min 26, max 154)
    2 - fps: 78 (min 26, max 137)
    3 - fps: 80 (min 34, max 142)
    External
    4 - fps: 85 (min 34, max 175)
    5 - fps: 88 (min 37, max 171)
    6 - fps: 29 (min 17, max 56)
    Desktop
    7 - fps: 102 (min 36, max 200)
    8 - fps: 32 (min 16, max 63)

    In other words, really good performance using 4k, nearly the same as 1080 desktop.
    If you plan to use egpu for 1080, the performance is good but not as good as desktop.

    The real problem of EGPU is the "multi task" operations.

    If you are going to play, just play, one game and nothing more, it's near perfect.
    The problem is if you want to play AND record your game, streaming or something like that, thunderbolt3 cant handle that, you will get a lot of problems there, fps drops and other problems, there are problems too with alt-tab games, it's slower and laggy.

    Hope it helps

    Pretty insightful, as already shown games like PubG would run at full desktop performance.

    Yeah I know about that, but why stream on your eGPU if you have dGPU on your notebook :)

    Maybe the question is, why not?

    it's true, with the 1070 maxq is stupid the eGpu solution, but think in, for example, 6 years, the e-Gpu will be a real solution, I really think there are a lot of problems that can be fixed througt software.

    The software today is on early stage, they have a lot of things to improve.

    I like the posibilities of any eGpu, but if the companies want to sell more units, they have to improve the software and usability, the performance TODAY is really good, there is no need to spend more money on that, fix the problems with plug&play for example...

    Unigine is a very bad benchmark for testing this. Try something like Assassins Creed Origins. You see you will lose quite a bit with TB3
