Ah, that is interesting! They've relieved a bottleneck somewhere. In most eGPU setups, we need to connect monitor to the video card in order to avoid a performance hit. So, on a Tiger Canyon NUC11 Pro, we can connect to the mobo video out and not suffer a performance drop? Very nice. Ergonomically, that opens up some options as well.
Sidenote ... Would you ever consider a console style version of this? Will happily fund, purchase and test that! It would be the perfect replacement for Little Mac 4.2L. Smaller and more powerful!
Yeah, seems it's running much better with Tiger Lake using the iGPU display output. I was very surprised that there is no significant performance drop any more.
I had the idea to make a console style case but I think with the NUC it would only make sense if using a LP GPU. Else you would loose the I/O either on the front or the back. And since the Xe iGPU on Tiger Lake i7 can almost beat a GTX1050Ti ...
If there is some interest I could start designing the DSS1 which would use the DeskMini A300 or X300 motherboard and an ITX sized GPU...
