Aorus RTX 2070 Gaming Box with Dell XPS 13 9380 Review

Ray-tracing for your Ultrabook. Gigabyte has outfitted its super-small external graphics dock with a mini GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card compatible with most Ultrabooks. Naturally, we run every benchmark we could to see how the Aorus eGPU solution compares against a traditional gaming laptop. The results are more variable than we had initially anticipated.

Last year's Aorus Gaming Box graphics dock offered GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 SKUs to transform any Thunderbolt 3-powered Windows 10 laptop into a mean gaming machine. This latest model swaps out the GTX GPU for an RTX 2070, but the compact chassis remains identical. As a result, we recommend checking out our existing review on the Gaming Box GTX 1080 for more information on the chassis and its features as our comments still apply here.

For the Gaming Box RTX 2070, we're here to answer the burning question: How does performance compare to a regular desktop RTX 2070? We'll be jumping straight into the benchmarks to show what this eGPU is capable of.

3x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 4x USB 3.0, 1x USB-C (for VirtualLInk™), 1x Thunderbolt 3 (for connecting to PC). The DVI port on last year's model is now gone

Dell XPS 13 9380 with Core i7-8565U CPU and 16 GB of RAM

We paired last year's Gaming Box GTX 1080 with the Kaby Lake-G Dell XPS 15 9575 convertible. Instead of using another uncommon Ultrabook, we decided to go with the more popular XPS 13 9380 this time equipped with 16 GB of RAM and a quad-core Core i7-8565U CPU.

Setting up the Gaming Box is relatively straightforward. The Dell system automatically recognizes the external GPU once connected and the necessary drivers will be downloaded. Once installed, the system reboots and the Gaming Box will be ready to go. Note that the unit ships with an older Nvidia 416.34 driver which we had to manually update to 419.35. Furthermore, all our benchmarks below were performed on an external 1080p monitor as performance would have been significantly reduced if using the laptop display not unlike on the Razer Core. Initial setup takes no more than a few minutes, but do keep in mind that unplugging the Gaming Box before shutting down Windows will inevitably result in a crash.

Reliability is still somewhat finicky. Should a game fail to launch, crash, freeze, or need a soft system reboot, then the laptop may subsequently not recognize the eGPU dock. Disconnecting and then reconnecting the dock after another hard reboot fixes the problem. The eGPU concept still has a long way to go before it becomes truly "plug and play".

PCMark 10 Productivity and Essentials benchmarks are nearly identical to a lone XPS 13 without the Gaming Box docking station. Thus, the laptop won't actually feel any faster when web browsing or running common office applications. The difference is in Digital Content Creation where the eGPU can flex its muscles for video editing and graphics rendering. Our boosted XPS 13 lags behind the MSI GE75 with the same RTX 2070 GPU by only 7 percent in this particular case.

GPU Performance

3DMark results mirror what we observed on the Gaming Box GTX 1080 in that 1080p performance is lower than expected while 4K UHD performance is much closer to a laptop with a "regular" RTX 2070. Fire Strike 1080p, for example, is 17 percent slower than the MSI GE75 RTX 2070 while their scores in Fire Strike Ultra 4K are within 3 percent of one another. Creating a GPU-bound scenario by upping the resolution and/or graphical settings will be a more optimal setup for an eGPU-powered laptop.

Note that 3DMark scores are not all that different from last year's Gaming Box GTX 1080. Fire Strike results are within single-digit percentages of each other and so the biggest reasons to own a Gaming Box RTX 2070 instead of the older Gaming Box GTX 1080 are for the special DLSS and ray-tracing features.

When compared to a traditional desktop PC with GeForce RTX 2070 graphics, the Aorus eGPU docking station is about 10 to 15 percent slower according to 3DMark benchmarks.

Gaming Performance

Real-world gaming performance is more variable but generally slower than what our 3DMark results above would suggest. Demanding triple-A titles like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Witcher 3, and Final Fantasy 15 run about 40 percent slower than a standard desktop PC with GeForce RTX 2070 graphics. In fact, overall performance is most similar to the Gaming Box GTX 1080 or a standard GTX 1060 laptop in some cases. The system comes close to an RTX 2060 laptop at best when paired with the low-power Core i7-8565U.

Metro Exodus will run at 1080p with Ultra settings and ray-tracing enabled which is surprising in itself. However, the performance hit is severe yet again at about 40 to 45 percent of a standard desktop PC with GeForce RTX 2070 graphics. Performance is even lower than a proper GTX 1070 laptop by almost 30 percent.

Idling on Witcher 3 shows no recurring frame dips to suggest no interrupting background activity.
