Thanks, everyone!  I build this step up by reading topics in this forum. 

My choice is HP OMEN accelerator + Gigabyte Radeon RX 580

The overall experience is simply plug in and play, and the 3X performance is impressive. 

I go through the setup guide couple times and make sure my card set up correctly. I still have some issues with active eGPU under Adobe software.

I attached some screenshots below, and any help will be appreciated.  😀

 

The good news is I get 3X performance on both FCP X rendering and beachmark.

Bruce X: 47.28s vs 18.88s

 

Geekbench 4  39226 vs 120387

 

LuxMark 3974 vs 14482

 

The bad news is Adobe LR and PS in my system still are using the dGPU instead of this much powerful RX580

This is the 'system info' under Adobe Lightroom, which still use Radeon Pro 455 as Graphics Processor.

All my recent tests with 10.13, RX580 and the Sonnet box suggest that Adobe CC 2018 apps are not eGPU-aware yet. Hopefully an update soon.

I get it, I wish Adobe can release an update on PS and LR.
