What interests me about your testing is the comment about hot-plugging in the Thunderbolt 3 ports. I have the same trap when I unplug my RAID array that connects through a USB-3/Thunderbolt 2 (thank you Apple for making cheap adapers!) adapter.
Something ain't right about the drivers/ports.

I don't have acess to a 1080 but I have no reason to think it will perform poorly.

thanks. just order a second P50 (I had to part ways with a previous one). knowing the core works gave me the perfect excuse to try again knowing that in a way, long-term obsolence is shielded from being able to "upgrade" graphics externally (hopefully the Core will come down in price later).
In retrospect, I guess the P40, P50s are the ones that if they had a thunderbolt 3 port, woudl benefit the most. also, it occurs to me that if an eGPU solution were to mode widespread, then maybe there is little case for the P70. As you could get same CPU, memory and disk arrays in a P50, and just plug in an external monitor for when heavy using graphics.

I see eGPU is not supported for P50 under details section of the TH3 software.
I wonder if eGPU support is disabled at recent P50 BIOS/TH3 firmware Or you could simply get the Razer Core to work despite eGPU not being supported with P50!
There is a chance your TH3 software is upgraded when you connected your P50 to the Razer Core. Would you please take a screenshot of details section of your TH3 software and share it with us? Thanks!

Any update on this?
I am seriously considering whether I should replace my W520 and EXP GDC setup with a P50 and Akitio Thunderbolt 3 Enclosure. (Note: I currently reside in China where the two month shipping on the Razer Core in addition to a much higher price than the Akitio is a dealbreaker for me.)
I should just give up the whole EGPU experience and build a desktop.
(Note: nVidia appears to be killing EGPU connections over ExpressCard/M.2/Mini PCI-E with driver updates AFTER 372.90. I am currently stuck on 372.90 because of this. Many EGPU users with the 10X0 series are also reporting the dreaded Error 43)

None of those details seem to show up on my Thunderbolt Config.
As far whether or not these setting will break the eGPU support I do not think so. I think that primarly pertains to the hotpluging of the GPU that we know does not work curently.
