    The AGA and AW laptop with external monitor is a great combo for at home gaming as opposed to a tb3 connected box or stand alone internal gpu. I’ve had very good performance with 1080ti and Titan xp in AGA and my aw 17r4 and aw13r3....

    Just ran it on an external display. 27.5K. Tell me again how it’s bottlenecked?

    Would be nice if we could combine pci express lanes, like using two Thunderbolts for 5 pcie

    Lol you will never fill up 4x PCIe 3.0 lanes with Bandwidth. The GPU's own memory bandwidth, as well as internal CPU latency and RAM latency would come into play long before you fill up 4x PCIe lanes.

    Proof:

    I second Rinneh's opinion.

    Stop spreading false info. The AGA is currently the fastest external GPU implementation.

    Any difference in Benchmarks between a desktop card and an AGA will be a result of the Laptop CPU and it's supporting Northbridge chipset and RAM.
