MacBook Pro Retina 13in Mid 2014
CPU: 3 GHz Dual-core Intel I7
RAM: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel Iris 1536 MB
2 TB SSD Sabrent Rocket
Running Catalina 10.15.5

I would like to run Lightroom and Photoshop faster. 

If money isn't an issue, could you recommend an enclosure and graphics card that would run the best on this system?

I am primarily worried about buying a graphics card that is "too good" for the system, where I wouldn't be able to use it to its fullest capabilities because of limitations, whether that is due to thunderbolt 2 system, or processor speed? Not sure. 

I'm assuming it will be with a Razer Core X or Razer Chroma with a TB3 to TB2 adapter. But if anyone has better recommendations, I would be open. 

Money isn't an issue, but I would like the fastest performance for photoediting. Not a gamer. 


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