Have it any sense with built-in Nvidia MX150?

Hi, I have an Asus X542UN laptop with Intel Core I7-8550U and Nvidia MX150. Awful laptop, but I decided to update it and I was left with the last problem. The MX150 is not bad overall, but the laptop is constantly overheating, resulting in throttling. I decided to buy EXP GDC but saw comparisons and monstrous FPS drop from other people. Hence the question is, will the chosen GPU (I realized the best options are GTX 1050 or 1060) will perform at a higher level than my mx150? Maybe someone roughly understands what it is capable of or can say how much FPS will drop on the eGPU?
