Asked by: Yazeed
Yes, this can work on a Windows PC that has Thunderbolt 3. Here is the direct quote from the Sonnet website. "he RX 5500 XT and RX 5700 require the latest release of Windows 10 20H2. Windows fully supports connecting displays to the HDMI and DisplayPort ports. However, a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C display connected to the Thunderbolt 3 port is not supported by Windows at this time. You may use this port as a 10Gbps USB-C port to connect a USB-C device. Apple does not support eGPUs on Bootcamp."

I have a LG 5k display. If I use this egpu, will my display camera and speakers continue to work as if I plugged it directly to my Mac mini? Also, will the display settings controlled via keyboard work as well? Thanks.

All of the ports on the Radeon RX 5500XT eGPU Breakaway Puck act as a pass through and should work as they did before installing the puck.
