    I will also say that not adding XG2 Station compatibility to the G752 series would be a bonehead move on Asus' part if this turns out to be a high speed TB3 port. The 2016 G502VM is not on the compatibility list however I've seen someone connect an eGPU to it showing an indicated 32gb/s bandwidth on it's TB3 port. Sso if other solutions are possible surely Asus would rather us spend money with them over a 3rd party device.

    Its about Thunderbolt 3.
    There is another user that has it working on a Dell XPS 15

    Razer released theirs long ago and it works on the same premise, TB3

    jmike,

    Thanks for checking with me. Will look into the G752 TB3 20gb/s and 40gb/s issues and get back to you later.

    Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar with the XG2 Station compatibility either, but check the thread below if you haven't seen it.
    Assuming ASUS-OP is an ASUS employee since they seem to know what they are talking about for the XG Station2, but may want to confirm this if necessary.
    Anyway, ASUS-OP mentioned "Requirement 1 and 3 can only be provided by host system vendor" which makes me wonder if the G752VY will ever be able to support the XG Station2 or not since it's not currently on the compatibility list at the bottom of this page https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards-...-XG-STATION-2/ .

    In order to support external GPU, you will need:

    1. A host system with Thunderbolt 3 firmware updated to the build below or newer (please consult your notebook manufacturer for support on this one):

    DSL6540 --> Firmware Version 21 or later
    JHL6540 --> Firmware Version 09 or later
    DSL6340 --> Firmware Version 21 or later
    JHL6340 --> Firmware Version 09 or later
    JHL6240 --> Firmware Version 04 or later

    Note: Firmware for each controller is not compatible with each other, and can only be provided by the host device vendor.

    If your firmware is not updated, it will not be able to support external graphics card.

    2. The Thunderbolt driver has to be updated for proper detection of Thunderbolt external graphics under hotplug: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...6.2.55.275.zip

    3. The BIOS needs to be able to allocate sufficient resource to support Thunderbolt external graphics and hot-plug of such device.

    4. The Intel graphics driver needs to be updated to the latest build to support Thunderbolt external graphics.

    5. The driver of your external GPU has to be updated to the latest build on GPU vendor website to support function as external graphics.

    Requirement 1 and 3 can only be provided by host system vendor. In your case, DELL. You will need to give them a buzz and ask them to help you with those before attempting to connect to any Thunderbolt 3 external graphics enclosure. We will be more than happy to help after your Thunderbolt 3 controller settings already show up as being able to support External GPUs.

    The good news is, Kabylake based notebook/miniPC with built-in Thunderbolt 3 interface manufactured after January 2017 will provide native support of this interface. New Kabylake notebook owners should be able to enjoy the flexible use of GPU without the additional efforts.

    Drop me a private message or post in the Australian section if there is anything we can help in the future.

    regards,
    Also, don't know how much it will matter, but in post #9 of the same thread above, ASUS-OP provided a link to Intel's website showing there is more than one Thunderbolt 3 Controller as well.

    From what I've been reading about eGPUs on egpu.io and a few other places, the controller does matter. That said I saw a post hinting to the fact that the XPS 9560 uses the same JHL6240 controller as the Asus G-Series.

    Sorry for the delay.

    fyi.
    From what I've been told the G752 series supports Thunderbolt3 40Gb/s but would also suggest verifying with your store or local support if possible before purchasing since something could change or there could be things I was not made aware of on my end.
    Our G752VY global website also still includes the disclaimer "Disclaimer: Actual specification may vary according to sku."
    https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/ROG-G752VY/

    If you have the G752 unit already and are not getting the 40Gb/s, would suggest looking into it more though and hopefully a solution can be found since it sounds like a lot of the Thunderbolt information for the G752 series may not be exactly correct if they don't list the 40GB/s spec.

    Whether the G752 series will support the XG Station 2 (or other Thunderbolt devices?) is another story though since it isn't listed as one of the compatible models/series right now on the ASUS website and I haven't checked or heard more about it on my end so far, but others at ASUS may be able to find out more if you want to try to check with them too.

    After doing a bit of reading I'm wondering if the reason for the disclaimer is not all G752s have the same controller. Maybe some have the JHL6240 and some have the JHL/DSL6340?

    It's possible, but I have yet to see any G752 units that have the JHL6240 controller, so I don't think this is the case, not only that, there is no notes with the NVM Firmware updates for the VL or the other G752's on the download pages for these laptops to say that some are not compatible with this update, nor is there a JHL6240 update for these laptops.

    My initial tests without an eGPU indicate that the G752 units should work, all that's needed is an NVM Firmware of 18 or above. The XG Station 2 has a firmware of NVM 23 and a new PD firmware. The latest firmware for the DSL6340 is 21 from my research.

    I would be interested to see what the latest G752's have for an NVM Firmware, and wonder if someone could post screenshots like those below.

    I'm testing an 'unofficial NVM Firmware' on my G752VL, but have no eGPU at this stage to test.

    (These screenshots are here for reference only, I will not release the NVM Firmware to anyone, so please don't ask me for it)

    This external graphics dock is compatible with Asus gtx 1080 Ti Strix? Station provides support for a single full length ,2.5 slot , 1080 Ti Strix has 5,25 cm, Is it 2,5 yet or 3 slot already?

    I'm going to say yes but that's really just me guessing. JayzTwoCents did a review fairly recently with a Founder's 1080 loaded and it seemed there was a large amount of space left.
