    The RTX cards run hotter than the GTX cards. If you upgrade in the future let us know your temps then with OC and maxed settings. You can’t compare your setup with mine as you don’t have the RTX card yet.

    Could this use other graphics card, like capture cards or other pcie cards in general? I know it may not make sense I am just curious.

    No. You’ll need to get a Thunderbolt 3 PCIE enclosure for anything like that.

    It has to do with the way it’s implemented at a hardware level. But you do have options via Thunderbolt 3

    doesnt the AGA use Oculink cable ?
    this what I posted comes in a free m.2 on the laptop. then the wire gets connected to the AGA
    sadly the delivery of this part is so expensive,that I wont order it to test it.

    It uses a proprietary cable, Dell exclusive. I do not see any sort of slots inside the WGA that looked like an OCuLink cable connector.
