System specs (model inc screen size, CPU, iGPU, dGPU, operating system which eGPU is being used)

Laptop - 2019 13-in Macbook Pro - i7 8557U 1.7ghz CPU, Intel Iris Plus 645, 16GB DDR3 Ram

1TB WD Passport HDD (wish I had an SSD), MX master mouse, apple magic keyboard

Windows 20H2, Bootcamp Red Drivers.



eGPU hardware (eGPU enclosure, video card, any third-party TB3 cable , any custom mods)

EGPU - PowerColor Mini Pro - RX570 8GB (noisy but nice little form) 



Hardware pictures (note: require 5+ posts for "attach files" button to appear. Or can link from say http://imgur.com   BUT post the .jpg/.png image file rather than a link to it)


Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)



Benchmarks (Include a CUDA-Z or AIDA64 bandwidth pic. Optional: Valley, 3dmark, noting if it's on internal/external LCD )

Games tested at 1080p - F1 2020, ACC, AC, Dirt Rally 2.0, AOE II, Modern Warfare, Fortnite, Forza Horizon.

Pretty much all you can play high/ultra settings at 45 - 60FPS. The only problem I have is ACC when I come to race AI the CPU cant keep up!



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

Chuffed at the £380 I spent on the EGPU

welcome in the club.

It is nice to have another PowerColor Mini Pro user in the community.

I do have an external ssd (LaCie 2TB) with Windows 10 and some (old) games on it - it works perfect. It was a little work to get it run - but it is worth to do it. Yet I am trying to get a M.2 SSD in a TB3 case running - not so easy.
