ASUS Transformer 3 Pro egpu setup recommendations

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi,

 

First time on this website and I thought this could be where I can find some help.

 

I've bought an ASUS transformer Pro 3 with the following specs:

 

CPU: i5 6200U (2.3 GHz turbo up to 2.8 GHz)

RAM: 8 GB

SSD: 512 GB

Price: $880 CAD (Got lucky on Amazon.. really lucky)

 

I have not heard any news about the ASUS ROG XG Station 2 being released anytime in Canada yet so I've started to look elsewhere.

The Akitio Node 3 seems ideal for me ($350+tax (free shipping)) since it  could fit full sized desktop graphics cards in there.

Question is, which one should I get? I was thinking GTX 980ti since I know I could get one for $450 but not sure which type or if there are better alternative.

I've heard I should look at the Zotac 10-series mini graphics cards but with these (and the potentially the 980ti), I don't want the system to bottle neck.

The i5 might not be powerful enough to draw the GPU's fullest potential.

I've already heard there were potential fan issues on the Transformer Pro 3 so if that's the case with my model (I hope not), I don't want it to end up overheating.

 

Please let me know which graphics card I should go for.

 

Thanks,

 

T

      Hi guys,
       
      I was wondering if a graphic amplifier (with series 10 gpu)  will make my ASUS ROG G752VT become VR ready.
      Currently the specs are  :
       
      Display size/resolution    17.3 inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen
      PC CPU    2.6GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ
      PC Memory    16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,133MHz
      Graphics    3072MB Nvidia GTX 970M
      Storage    128GB SSD + 1TB 7,200rpm HDD
      Networking    802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0
      Operating system    Micorsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
       
      Before spending on that, any information will be helpful
      If yes, which graphic amplifier should i get ?
      If not , what do you advise me do to so that I can get VR running properly? ( I  do not have space for desktop)
       
      Thank you for your help.

      Hi all, I have a macbook pro 15 inch retina mid-2015.
      I joined a Aikitio thunder2 with a graphics card GTX 1070 but there are problems with the internal monitor of my macbook.
      first of all we will list the specific to this topic.
      my macbook is equipped with two graphics cards, an integrated and a dedicated, integrated is an intel iris pro graphics while one dedicated is an amd radeon r9 m370x 2 GB gddr5, and obviously the eGPU GTX 1070.
      the problem is that with the external monitor connected via hdmi to egpu doesn't show any problem while using the internal monitor that should take the video signal from the thunderbolt has lagged.
      Mafia 3 with settings on external monitor turn 54 fps while on internal monitor turn 9 fps!!!
      i have windows 10 on bootcamp.
      There is not much difference and it occurs to me that the problem is the thunderbolt.
      members of tech hell please help me!
