How long does a gaming MacBook pro last with heavy eGPU and and also substained CPU-load?
Using an eGPU for render tasks and also CPU-heavy tasks, how long can I expect a macbook pro to last? The eGPU-usage should increase lifetime right? but what does heavy CPU-usage does to the lifetime of the machine, anyone have experience with that? Can they be used more like workstation class machines with an eGPU attached or should you really have a desktop for that?
I'm not sure lifetime is a thing. A computer should last a decade before dying. In that time maybe you should have replaced it a couple times just because it's not the latest. The battery will wear out before the CPU/GPU.
