Budget solution for work in DaVinci Resolve

Hey! Now I am running on old setup with eGPU on MacBook pro 15 (2014 with dGPU m750), Akitio Thunder 2, Radeon Sapphire RX480 8GB, Big Sur. I use this setup almost for work in DaVinci Resolve. Now I understand that it is hopelessly outdated and an update is required. Now I am looking for more fast setup with eGPU and MacBook (i like this solution) for my tasks. Now I am choosing between three options  1 - Macbook Pro 15 mid2015 (2015 with dGPU Radeon),  eGPU enclosure Razer Core x, Radeon RX5700XT (but maybe I'll choose another one I have not decided yet), Thunderbolt adapter (MMEL2ZM/A). 2 - Macbook Pro 16 2019 (Intel iris), eGPU enclosure Razer Core x, Radeon RX5700XT. 3 - Macbook Pro 16 2019 with AMD Radeon Pro 5500M. Anyway, I plan to use one of these solutions together with an external 4k monitor from Benq. In my opinion, it is still too early to consider computers with M1. Maybe I'm wrong. Which of these solutions will give the best performance? I would be grateful to the forum users for their help.
