Anyone have any idea whether an eGPU can work with Windows games installed in MacOS via the Porting Kit/WINE?

I haven’t got an eGPU yet (but I just got a 2018 13” MBP and I’m eyeing the Gigabyte Gaming Box w/ 580 or a Sonnet Puck w/ 570)... my rough understanding from reading these forums is:
- eGPU will work with just about any game in Win10
- eGPU will work in macOS with apps that are specifically adapted to use it

I don’t know enough about the technology to guess what that means for Windows games installed via WINE. Any thoughts? Anyone doing it already? Could maybe be a nice way to play slightly older games. It sure would be nice to limit reliance on boot camp...
