Heya, does anyone tried Parallel and macOS Catalina on internal display with eGPU? I would really appreciate if anyone share the experience. How is the performance compare to internal graphics and does Parallel really optimise eGPU with internal display?

Once I get reply from you, I would buy eGPU for my 13" MacBook Pro 2020.

I run parallels with eGPU. Sometimes with internal display.

It works, fine. With latest version there is an update on performance, but it is just more ok-ish than the ok-ish(?) it used to be.

Using eGPU is definitely better than iGPU or dGPU. But it is still parallels, so.... There is no real optimization for eGPU in parallels overall. Performance is expect to be heavily hindered.

@defoler, thanks mate. But did you notice any graphical performance benefits? Also, how you force parallels to select eGPU rather than iGPU?

Would appreciate your reply.
