    Congratulations! Would be good to see some Firestrike benchmarks using both the internal GTX 1060 and the external GTX 1080 Ti!?
    I gather G-SYNC doesn't work on the laptop screen when using an e-gpu?

    I can do a 3DMark Firestrike in a short while (have to set it up on the laptop). What I can confirm right now is, with the internal graphics card (GTX1060) disabled and fully relying on the GTX1080TI to output the screen, I am not allowed to access the Nvidia Control Panel. The solution right now is activating both the internal graphics (GTX 1060) and the eGPU (GTX 1080TI) and manually select which programs will utilise which GPU. Also, G-sync does not work on the laptop screen when using an eGPU itself alone.

    Wow....I figured it was quirky but not that quirky! Cheers.

    I laughed at the results, looks like I need to do more tweaking to get firestrike fully working with the eGPU.

    So this could mean the JHL6240 TB3 controllers which are said to be 20Gbps might only be in the skylake models of the GL502VM and GL702VM whereas the kaby lake GL502VMK and GL702VMK actually have the 40 Gbps controllers. Just guessing. This is great news for the VMK owners.

    My G752VT is now on the compatibility list. The global site says 40gbit/s, the UK site still says 20gbit/s. Even though Asus were supposed to update it. The fact is this info should be easily accessible. Asus need to improve how they publish specs.

    How are gaming benchmarks looking? Also I thought the 15BF was the half speed controller? Is this confirmation that that is not the case?

    The ambiguity on this issue is just unnecessary.

    Some Updates!

    Agreed. There seems to be factual delays between Asus's marketing updates and their engineers.

    What is the current situation:
    - Certain programs are not fully utilising the GTX 1080TI inside XG Station 2 (firestrike, for example)
    - Both the internal GPU (GTX 1060) and the eGPU must be enabled for a smooth experience with all software
    - Have to manually tweak and configure which software should use which GPU

    What I hope and achieve to do:
    - XG Station Plug and Play, instantly and flawlessly disable the internal GPU (GTX 1060) and switch to the eGPU, programs will run its graphical needs off the eGPU only

    I also have been running a stress test for several hours and everything seems to be in order, for now. Temperatures are at a constant 83C, heat dissipation with the XG Station 2 box is rather well. Aura sync feature makes it beautiful in aesthetics. Most importantly, no disconnections from the laptop have been observed during the stress test.
