F1 2017 for Mac compatible with eGPU?

Dear all

I bought the above game for Mac on Steam but I have 14 days to cancel the purchase.
I was worried about the game not being compatible with my Nimbus but browsing the support pages I found that only one game from Feral is compatible with an eGPU, Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Has anybody got any experience on any Feral games that run on eGPUs apart from Tomb Raider?
It was only 12.49 EUR but I prefer not to spend that money for nothing.
Regards,
JA

F1 2017 should work with eGPU in macOS. The best way to enjoy it is definitely with an external monitor. I did this test more than a year ago with F1 2016 and G27 racing wheel. This was done with an RX 580. Nvidia cards can work in 10.13 with our community support. I'm not cleared with Feral's classification of eGPU-compatible games.

Thanks. The eGPU did work on my MBP 2016 with High Sierra. Mac Mini 2018 is on its way.
EDIT: I have not tried the game yet, will wait for the MM.

Good to know. F1 2017 will be the first game I test on MacOS once I'm all set up with my iMac.

One of my favourite game, MB pro 2017 works great

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