Hey guys!

 

I have this TB1 Sonnet Echo Express Pro (150w model)... Is TB1 bandwidth enough for a (modest) gaming setup? Can I use the Express Pro with a Rx580 (on a mid 2014 mbp)?

 

Thanks so much!

@destinyschild, If you use it with an external monitor, the performance boost over iGPU/dGPU should be significant enough to be worth it.
