can we see that 1080 in your cMP Smile would love to see how it stacks up against the other cards you have run through that machine

I will definitely put it through the pace inside the Mac Pro tower. eGPU testing has higher priority atm. 😀

Hi, I assume that there wouldn't be any issues with a Mac that has already a discrete gpu build on it, like the new macbook pro 15 retina 2016, that can't be shipped without the AMD mobile chip.

great comparisons, very interesting regarding the PCIe and PCH implementation.

Do you have any data regarding 15" non touchbar? As this doesnt have an ATI card, it could be possibly the best MBP for eGPU?

Also, if Apple were to have say a 15" touchbar without the ATI graphics, I'm guessing it would be saving PCIe lanes by not having the graphics cards, so this would be the best for eGPU performance?

We're working on an article to show the performance difference with the new firmware.

Is it able to charge 15 mbp with one single cable?

Yes it does. The production unit will be able to provide 87W power delivery.

Hi,

Thanks for theses tests. What is the noise level of Macbook Pro when you use eGPU ? Are they full load or do you only hear the fan from GPU?

Thanks for your reply

Noise from the MacBook Pro is not a concern at all. It's almost non-audible while the eGPU box is going. The loudest component is the graphics card fan. If you place the eGPU enclosure at a distance, say under your desk you may hear the MBP.
