Hello, I have a simple noob question. I have a 2017 13” mbp with touchbar. I want to use Windows with bootcamp. Can I accelerate internal display with sonnet breakaway + rx 580 egpu? I don’t have external monitor.

Yes you can. Use the left Thunderbolt 3 ports so that you'd get the full TB3 bandwidth. You'd also need to keep the Intel iGPU activated through the use of either automate-eGPU EFI or rEFInd.
