Hello. Thanks for your good information.

My MacBookPro is also 2015 MID, iris , i7 , 16G , ios (10.13.5)  too.

I am going to make EGPU system using Your information.
radeon 580, sonnet box 350 .. ETC.

But , I heard that the minimum power of radeon egpu is 500w.
Is it enough to use radeon 580 using sonnet 350 ?
How about your opinion?
