normal use without egpu
As I'm still waiting for my Akitio Node,
Let say I've got my node working on Mac and bootcamp.
What about those time when you just need to carry the mbp out for normal use without eGPU,
will it boot up and function normally as usual?
or does it require eGPU plug in order to boot up permanent?
I have the same doubts. Would appreciate some clarity on this.
The Mac laptop would function normally when there's no eGPU attached. Think of an eGPU as a sidecar for your motorcycle. It adds capacity and utility only when needed while also remaining mobile.
Perfect analogy ;p thanks @itsage for the clarification.
Hey @jpme & @mac_editor I run a 2016 15" tbMacbook Pro with a Devil Box eGPU, and I am here to report, that I carry my laptop with me to and from school & to and from work everyday without any issues. Once I make it home I set it up with the eGPU and go onto VR Development/VR Gaming. This is all in Bootcamp. GTX 1070 is what I am running.
