My SetUp: Macbook Pro Retina 15'' Mid 2015 Thunderbolt 2 dGPU: AMD Radeon R9 M370X
eGPU AMD Vega Frontier Edition on a Akitio Node Pro Thunderbolt 3

I use usually DaVinci Resolve for transcoding ProRes files and I see that when I set the dGPU AMD Radeon R9 M370X (2gb) the software do render at the same fps than when I set the eGPU AMD Vega Frontier Edition (16). Why? The Fontier card is more powerfull it should make render at double or more, I'm doing something wrong? any idea?
Thanks!

I think because the power supply on the Akitio Node Pro is not powerful enough. I have the same macbook pro and graphics card, except I'm using a Sonnet Breakaway Box 650. Works great!
