eGPUs can come in clutch for a quick upgrade to your VFX workstation or in our case, a macbook VFX laptop. Feeling a little down on power, and needing an upgrade, I jumped at the chance to test out how much extra performance an eGPU could offer in my most used applications. Blender being the major one I was hoping to get a big performance boost for.
The good news is, this eGPUs work pretty well, provided you understand the limitations, and they're very affordable as an alternative to building a whole new system.
