Hi @CaseySJ , today have received nvme tb3 enclosure, tested with Samsung 970 Evo Plus. Attached u find the speed test result.
For comparison I have tested the internal nvme, also 970 evo plus. The speed is half or less..
The enclosure is this Sabrent


EDIT
Just to be clear i only want to know if this Speed are ok or there Is some problem. I have found on YouTube a similar config, the Speed seems coerent, more or less. What do you think?
Yes the speeds appear to be correct. You are getting a Read speed of 1450 MB/s which is very close to the maximum rated speed of 1600 MB/s:

Then the only issues remain the ThunderboltIP bridge speed.. next week I'll make other test with new cable and a MacBook Pro 2020. I'll update you when I have news. For now, thank you. I mentioned you in my repo. :D

TB3 bridge transfer should be capped at about 1GB/s

I'm back to share a project I recently completed.
Behold my 7" LCD Mac stats case mod:

Stats LCD0.jpg

I bought an Ingcool 7" LCD from Amazon for $61, modified/Dremeled a $12 Kuman 7" Raspberry Pi case, and installed iStatistica Pro $9.99. I used 2-sided automotive tape to mount it inside my Phanteks Evolv X case and connected it to my Radeon VII via the open HDMI port. USB power is via an NZXT internal USB "hub".

It shows up as a second monitor, so I simply moved iStatisca Pro to it and maximized the window. Tada!! Realtime stats. I know it's a novelty, but, personally, I think it turned out pretty cool. Happy to get your thoughts and feedback.

About 30 minutes for 6gb circa? It seems a bit slow for me, but it's my first approach with TB. Maybe Is the cable, or some sort of incompatibility between Mac/hack and Windows?

What a great idea! Surprisingly inexpensive as well. We are seeing AIO coolers, GPUs and VRM/chipset covers containing OLED displays for Temp, Fan Speed, etc., but this takes the concept to the next level!

Here are the results from my 1TB EVO 970 NVMe in a OWC Thunderbolt 3 Envoy Express. Roughly same speeds as you're seeing.

Thanks for confirming that there is no problem with my Thunderbolt transfer speed .. have you tried moving files between two Thunderbolt computers?
Yes, I've moved large VM data/files from my Hackintosh to my MacBook Pro via Thunderbolt target disc mode. Transfer speed is actually a little slower, but its the same with transferring data from my Mac Mini to my MacBook Pro via TB3. Not sure why, but it is what it is.
