Lenovo X1 Carbon 9th Gen - The best Ultrabook for EGPU?

Hi all,

Have been out of the game since I sold my MBP 2018 (and Razer Core V2) in late 2018 and replaced with a desktop, as I felt that the tech just wasn't reliable enough at the time and that the CPUs were unable to keep temperatures at bay.

Enter the X1C 9th Gen - I haven't clicked purchase yet however this looks like it could be the perfect Ultrabook candidate. i7-1185 CPU, TB4, dual-fans, no dGPU, etc.

Is there anything out there with similar build quality that would beat this? Likewise, are there any real world results for how this new CPU handles games with EGPU?

Thanks in advance!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
