How do I build a custom eGPU and connect it to a Mid 2015 MBP
I have some PC components that I would like to repurpose them for an eGPU setup and connect it to my 2015 Macbook Pro via the Thunderbolt 2 port.
The components I have:
- An intel CPU
- 4 x Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti
- Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3 motherboard
- 2 x PSUs
This is new territory for me so I am not really sure where should I start. What do I need to put build the eGPU setup?
Can't use the cpu or mobo, what's the rating on psu's? I'm guessing enough to power the gpu's so the only thing you are missing is a TB2 or TB3 board. You should be able to pick up a used/new thunder2 for this.
There is a guide section as well, so you can narrow it down by your laptop and gpu to see what other components people have tried.
