eGPU setup for use with Macbook Air (2020) + a standard PC
An update here:
I decided to start with getting the new MBA and see whether or not it performed well enough for me in graphics intensive tasks such as Photoshop and iMovie, which it does. Although I like my 12" Macbook more (the form factor, no fans and I prefer that keyboard), the new MBA is a nice machine. I also enjoy being able to keep having buttons instead of the touch bar which is one of many reasons I'd never go for the MBP.
Anyway - I'm thinking about returning the MBA in favour of getting a top-of-the-line Mini instead. The main reason being that the performance bump from the 12" MB to the new MBA isn't big enough for me to give up the things I like about the 12" MB. But with a cranked up Mini I could use as a main working machine AND gaming machine, maybe I'd be happier
But with what people have been saying here regarding Bootcamp and the eGPU on Calatina, maybe that's just a bad idea? Maybe I should just do what I intended in my OP. Hmm, lots to consider here.
Update: After having used my new MBA for a few hours I've quickly realised that the "missing letters when typing" that I've been experiencing recently has most likely been due to the keyboard on my 12" MB rather than an early onset alzheimers 🙈So, I think it's gonna be a keeper.
