Could you please recommend me?. Thank you
My laptop is a i7 GEN12, 16 gb Ram with Thunderbolt4
A couple of years ago, I used a Sonnet Breakaway Box and an 1080 gfx card with my Thinkpad P51 laptop. It worked fine although you will loose some 10% performance of the gfx card due to this setup. Which gfx card you need depends on the complexity of your models and budget.
But first, better check if your laptop really uses the optimal Thunderbolt speed because some brands don’t and people run into ‘bad’ gfx performance.
