2020 13" MBP eGPU solution for six screens?
Thanks for hosting such a great forum.
Coming here from the high end audio and competitive shooting communities.
I've scoured through the build database and reviews. (Such a wealth of knowledge and helpful/constructive tone.)
I'm looking to expand a home trading setup to six external displays.
Just checking to see if I understand the current state of play and if my gear selections make sense:
2020 13" MBP i5 2.0 10G 16 512 (4) TB ports
Is there anything else, AMD/Apple OS compatible that will support more than four external displays? (I have the Apple support page saved, but only a couple professional cards are included.)
Is there potentially a better way to accomplish the same goal?
Thanks in advance for your help.
@boatschool02, W5700 would definitely get my vote for your needs of running 6x monitors through an eGPU in macOS. I got one a few months back when Dell had some inventory. It worked play with my 2020 13-in Ice Lake MacBook Pro [link]. 5x mini DP ports and 1x USB-C port would connect to all your 6x external monitors without issues. I also like the USB-C for its flexibility in connecting different types of peripherals.
The MasterCase EG200 is a nice choice for enclosure too. You can add hard drive and other accessories without impeding the Thunderbolt connection. I'm using mine mainly for testing cooling components; in the process of gathering parts to build a hardline custom loop.
