    It is actually Nvidia's fault, since they have been trying to cull aftermarket eGPU/PCIe solutions.
    The AGA , other the proprietary connector, is basically just a PCIe 3.0 x4 Port.
    The fix that NVIDIA needs to apply every single time is proper PCIe detection/hot plugging bypass or something.

    But, Dell can and should force/cooperate with Nvidia. Dell must have collaborated with Nvidia when they developed/forward this proprietary eGPU solution 2014/2015. They couldn't do it without help of Nvidia. This mess is as expected when I saw the AGA first time early 2015. Nearly a year used Dellienware on this mess before it worked about correct. No excuse for this driver mess. Dell ain't exactly a small backyard company.
    And this AGA is why Dell is committed to providing continued Bios (firmware) updates on old eol Awbook's. Would never ever happen without this proprietary box.

    So, this driver is for Dynasty 2, Assassin creed origin and Agents of Mayham? Does, that mean a new driver for Wolfenstein 2 will be released either Thursday or Friday? Not, to mention the AW fixes—if so I’ll skip this one

    Dell can and should do a lot of things.. but then again, that would be in a dream land sort of world :p
    But yeah with @Prema's BIOS this would be as easy as enabling a simple setting in the BIOS instead of relying on NVDIA/DELL or going through install/resintall shenanigans.

    HeHe. But isn't Dell's firmware fully locked with secure boot? You will need the crypto key for flash mod bios?

    Btw. We must be grateful (sarcasm) @Mr. Fox But how long did Adam live in paradise?:oops:

    Yeah, there might be a solution to that ;)
    Not an easy solution, but a solution none the less ;D
    Shall know more in a week or 2.
    AW's need a signed exe for the motherboard to go into authenticated BIOS flash mode. There are a lot of Intel Boot Guard shenanigans at play.

    I have two vulkan RT's running simultaneously from Intel and nvidia.

    Alienwares are supported in this driver release. They promised to deliver driver updates for alienwares.

    Why it is written otherwise in release notes?
