Comments (eg: how has the eGPU improved your workflow or gaming)

I've not tested it for photo and video editing yet but I've used it for playing light games such as League of Legends and was a bit disappointed in the performance. Looking to save up for an AMD card since it will be better for OS X. I will try to bootcamp and run more benchmarks when I get around to installing windows.
