Will an eGPU solve this??

Hi. I hope this is the correct forum to ask this. I have a late 2012 Mac Mini running High Sierra, 16GB RAM. I use it with Photoshop and Lightroom to edit photos. Recently the picture seems to cut out and restart. I don't think its the monitor - when it comes back is has the input source like it lost the connection. I'm concerned the integrated video is dying and want to try to continue to use this box. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks


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

Hi and welcome. please fill out your signature to give your posts context. maybe better describe "Recently the picture seems to cut out and restart." is your app failing or is this a kernel panic full shut down? I don't know if eGPU will save you here in this scenario. Your best bet is to first figure out problem with the cut out.
