To enable eGPU support in apps, be sure to enable "Prefer external GPU" in Finder's Get Info menu on an app-by-app basis.
Some apps will natively see the eGPU and will need to be set in the app's settings (for example, World of Warcraft).
Uningine Heaven Benchmarks:
Significant improvement in games on internal display - higher graphics settings enabled and increased frame rate. Tested using Kerbal Space Program and World of Warcraft.
No significant difference in render times in Premiere Pro (when using internal display only).
No significant difference in viewport performance in Maya 2017.
