2014 MacBook Pro - R9 390 - Looking for Setup advice
I currently have a 2014 Macbook Pro 15 with the 750M and am considering buying an eGPU enclosure to use with a graphics card I already have, an R9 390. My reasoning for it is, while I love my MBP, it does get HOT and occasionally stutter while doing multiple things on it, such as playing a game of Hearthstone on one monitor and watching YouTube videos on another. I would like to give the computer some extra power while it’s sitting at my desk and take some of the load off of it.
I was looking to figure out if what I would like to do makes sense, or is even possible. At my desk I currently have an external monitor plugged into the HDMI port of my MacBook. What I was thinking of doing, was getting an thunderbolt 3 eGPU enclosure to house my R9 390, a tb2 to tb3 adapter to connect the enclosure to my MacBook, and then connect the external monitor directly to the 390. I would also like to keep running MacOS with this setup.
