[Egpu vs gaming laptop] How much of a performance can I realistically expect? (MBP 15 + EGPU vs Razer blade pro 17)
So here is my dilemma:
I wondering if anyone knows how much the aforementioned setup would out perform a Razer blade pro 17 (with 2080 Max Q)?
Any insight is welcomed!!
There are a few aspects to consider. The RBP will likely perform a little stronger, but once you have it, that’s all you’re gonna have. There’s no ability to future-proof, although it’ll would serve you well for several years. The MBP with eGPU can get an upgraded external screen and GPU at any point so it would be pretty much future proof to a point. There are also other options with non-gaming laptops with thunderbolt 3 that could support the eGPU as well. The choice is yours, and there are a lot of different directions you could go.

@nando4, wow really helpful link! Thank a lot man!
@andygev35, you are absolutely right, both have its pros and cons. I don't have an external monitor at this moment, so getting a gaming laptop which comes with a high refresh rate monitor sounds tempting
@tsakal, thanks for the benchmark! that's some really good fps you are getting.
