Depends on which card, what kind of footage you are using, which features of Premiere Pro, and a few other factors.

You can learn about which Premiere Pro features benefit from which types of GPUs here:

...and from there if you need an NVIDIA card (likely), you can read this thread to figure out how to make it work (since there is currently no support from Apple).
[APP] NVIDIA eGPU support for High Sierra (NVIDIAEGPUSupport)

Bring peace to your computing life: stop trying to understand Apple.

I have a 2012 Mac, If I update to the new 10.13.4 will that mess up building an eGPU that is not supported by apple.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

From what I understand, the real 10.13.4 version will prevent pre-TB3 Macs from using ANY eGPU, supported by Apple or nor.

Hello,

I have a Macbook Pro Late 2013. Some time ago I had the Akitio Thunderbolt 2 with GTX 970 on the run. Now I want to buy Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box with Rx 580, because I want to grow a new Macbook with Thunderbolt 3 later. Will the configuration work with my current Macbook?

Thank you for your help and great praise for your work.

2013 15" MacBook Pro [4th,4C,H] + RX 580 @ 16Gbps-TB2>TB3 (Sonnet Breakaway 350) + macOS 10.13.6 & Win10 [build link]
