Hey and welcome to CGDirector! 🙂 I’m Alex and I started CGDirector all the way back in 2005 with a single goal: Help PC-Builders in Computer Graphics find the right Hardware Components for their PC.

Over the years I’ve been able to fill many roles: From 3D-Generalist, Animator, Compositor, to Graphic Designer and Video Editor, handling IT resources of big companies to building my own Render-Farms.

Optimizing Computer Hardware ,so it runs the Software I am using the best it can, is something I’ve never stopped doing and I hope to help as many people as possible with what I learned so far.

Hello Alex,

I want to use an Intel i9 with up to four graphics cards.
Is it possible to connect an eGPU (two GTX 1080Ti) to a computer (intel i9 9900k with two GTX TitanX)?

Best regards
