What recommendations do you have for eGPU other than the compete one you have in the ‘yellow box’?
I feel like getting a Mac mini to replace my ageing mid-2015 MBP but the lack of good GPU is a turn off. If I can pair with a full sized GPU with some grunt then it still comes in less than a new MBP, and I get the 4x TB3 ports either way.
Thx, @Oliver_Boinx . I’m asking if you know of a good eGPU enclosure and card combo for Mac mini other than the compact one you are using? I don’t need to be so compact because not making a “yellow box” type of thing straight away until I get some more experience of what I’m needing on location.
thanks Gabriele — I often wonder if all the threads and math units on gaming cards are put to use by video effects software. there’s some people saying on Amazon they have days of issues with the drivers, on macOS are drivers required or will macOS already be able to run it?
Certainly affordable if it buys me a huge leap in stability and mimoLive and video/graphics software processing power. another nice thing about a good GPU card is I could buy a PC/Linux motherboard and plug and play with it there for Resolve Da Vinci too.
@Alastair1 you can easily find several videos on YouTube regarding the combo I mentioned. And, again, that’s the best option currently available on the market (for OS X, of course). If you search for an eGPU for a Mac that does not have an internal discrete GPU, you simply cannot find anything better than that. If your Mac is less than two years old and is equipped with an internal discrete GPU, the advantage coming from having an eGPU is going to be small. Otherwise, it is going to be huge.
My MBP is mid-2015 and I’m really sick of it’s constant problems (since I got it but even worse lately with ports not working all the time and/or GPU flaking out with external monitors attached. Going to get a Mac mini which is why I’m looking for an eGPU. I could go a spec’d up iMac but I hate their closed architecture and have a new 27" Dell 4K colour calibrated monitor already, so I’m leaning towards Mac mini. And if I go to the dark side (windows/linux) I still have the GPU to use with a desktop PC I guess for cheaper CPU, RAM etc.
