I use a Zenbook 3 UX490 on the run and work at different offices. This would feel like a good alternative to make my Zenbook a full workstation without the need to get to a desktop to export projects.

Zenbook 3 Deluxe - i5-7200U, 8GB /w eGPU: RX 580 Gaming Box

I currently use a nuc8i5beh to make YouTube videos and do graphic design with. I travel a lot but haven't found a laptop that I have found worth it within my price range for gaming and productivity. I've been looking into a lot of these eGPU solutions but many of them are very large and some seem quite unreliable. This seems like the perfect size for what i'm looking to accomplish!

Thank you for an excellent write up and comparison. Very helpful and just what I was looking for.

Finally, an eGPU that addresses the flaky expansion ports issues that plague most other models! Have you done any testing by stressing the USB controller while the GPU is busy, and while it's idle? Are there noticeable performance drops? What suffers, the GPU performance, or the USB controller?

Owner of a Dell XPS 9570, I relocate often (once a month), and am looking at eGPUs for my machine learning workflows. The built-in 1050ti Max-Q is not cutting it, and the extra USB ports provided by this enclosure would be a salvation from my current #donglelife.

I’d love a small, portable eGPU to pair with my midrange 2016 15” MacBook Pro. I game wherever I find myself with downtime, and it would be awesome to have some more graphics oomph in a small, light package. I am also a photographer so the extra power would come in handy when editing.

Sign me up for the giveaway! I'm a game/augmented reality developer with a 2018 15" MacBook Pro 2,9 GHz Intel Core i9 with 32GB of ram and a Radeon Pro 560X. I have a laptop because I have to go work at clients fairly often. This eGPU would definitely speed up my work when I'm at my studio and would allow me to dive deeper into machine learning – currently working on a video game in my free time and would love to leverage the power of machine learning in Unity to speed up testing :-).

Mac mini 2011 Smile still in use. I'm playing Borderlands and other games and eGPU will make a huuuge speedbump. Cheeeerss anyway.

Hello I'm Mat from www.bootcampdrivers.com.
I modify, build and test AMD graphics drivers suitable for Macs running BootCamp (Windows 10), ensuring they are kept up-to-date alongside PC versions of the driver. I also make it easier for eGPU users to get their eGPUs up and running alongside their internal GPUs by baking support for both in one driver package.

I currently only have the ability to test the drivers on my m295X inside my iMac 5k from 2014.
With the VisionTek RX570 I would be able to test the eGPU with the drivers which will help to further improve stability and compatibility with newer driver releases.

Many thanks for accepting my entry and thank you for this excellent resourceful website!
