@Dream3 I don't have Photoshop but do have a variety of other photo editing apps (MacOS Photos, Luminar 2018, Pixelmator, etc) and all seem to use the eGPU to varying degrees, mostly in the effects filters, resizing, etc. I shoot a Sony a7rII RAW (typically 43MB files) and Photos is now quite a bit faster when cropping, sharpening, noise reduction, etc. Makes sense as it is an Apple app and I believe it takes advantage of Metal. I've taken to keeping the GPU Monitor open on my screen to see when the RX 580 is being used and Photos spikes the graph during these activities.

I received mine over a week ago (pre ordered in Germany). 
But it seems I can't reach anywhere near the normal benchmarks of the 580. I tried the classroom and BMW benchmark scenes in Blender. They did cycles render tests using variety of GPUs. My render times are more then three times of what they would be!! I know I will get like 5-10% loss due to using an eGPU.. but 66% is unexeptable.. did anyone get similar results or does someone know what might have gone wrong?

Hey Chris,

do you have another Thunderbolt 3 cable to try? I heard some Sonnet Breakaway Box users having the same problem after upgrading from 10.13.3 to 10.13.4. In most cases the problem was the Thunderbolt cable.

Can't find these boxes ANYWHERE!  Sure it's not a joke?

I’ve been searching for it within EU resellers desperately since 27th April which is the release date.

I also received mine this morning.

My machine is a Non-Retina Mid-2012 Macbook Pro with TB1. After running purge-nvda.sh and purge-wrangler.sh as per  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/script-enable-egpu-on-tb1-2-macs-on-macos-10-13-4 I was up and running with no issues in macOS. Super easy! I'm going to give bootcamp a go later today, and will eventually create a build guide thread for the project.

hey man, how's your mac and the eGPU setup doing? I'm considering to buy this instead of the Sonnet Breakaway Puck RX570 for my rMBP m2012 15. 
I'm going to use this for graphic intensive programs and video editing. No games or bootcamp. Thanks!
