Hey - 

do you guys think this RX 6600 XT ITX from Asrock would work (+MacOS)?

Thanks for your post... I ended up doing the same thing... dropped the ASUS Dual 3060 in here for similar performance results

Originally I was going to try the 3060 Ti, but I had read that some people had it pull too much power if it was charging the laptop at the same time... 

After playing around with it in the 3060 config.... I caved and decided I'd be happier with just a bit more power and upgraded it to the Dual Mini 3060 Ti, and then just reduce the Wattage via Afterburner if I had issues. (its funny how you can pretty much use half the power, but still get 80-90% the graphics power on these cards.)

Happy to report the Dual Mini 3060 ti works just fine for me, (I'm using it with a Surface Pro 8) and performance is quite good. It uses about 30-40 more watts than the 3060 (non ti), but seems fine, although for normal use, I'm tweaking the power back a little anyways... Its pretty easy to bump clock speeds up and reduce power limits at the same time without hurting any performance drastically.

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

@cameron_butterfield, there's quite a bit of excitement over eGPU attachment with the new Microsoft Surface systems. Did you want to share the good news of your Microsoft Surface Pro 8 + RTX 3060 Ti @ 32Gbps-TB4 eGPU implementation by submitting a build guide?

@cameron_butterfield,

That is awesome. Welcome to the forum, by the way! 

I second @nando4's suggestion and would love to see a build.
