External GPU Dock Wreaks Havoc on RTX 4090 Gaming Performance

If you’ve been thinking about installing an RTX 4090 in a shiny new external GPU box, you might want to reconsider. Jarrods Tech on YouTube just released new video Here’s what the RTX 4090 can do with an external Thunderbolt GPU dock. The results were incredibly bad. The dock slowed down his 4090’s gaming performance and most games could only use his 50% of its power at best.

For testing, Jarrod used two different laptops. A more powerful Aorus 17X gaming laptop with an Asus Zenbook 14 OLED with i7-1260P processor and a more capable Core i9-12900HX. Jarrod also put together his 7950X desktop test rig as a baseline and in an external GPU dock configuration he saw how much performance the 4090 holds up.
