MBP 13,3” 2018 + Aorus gtx 1080 bootcamp as desktop?
I am waiting for my MacBook Pro 2018 13,3 with 16GB DDR3 and i5 8259. Because I also need a new desktop, I was wondering if buying an Aorus gtx 1080 gaming box would be a decent alternative for a desktop. A new desktop pc with decent GPU easily costs €1000+ so i was thinking would this work as a good desktop replacement (using Boot Camp).
I think connecting my monitor, mouse and keyboard to the eGPU would make a nice desktop replacement. Most demanding thing that I use my desktop for is PUBG (preferably @ 4K if possible). What do you guys think, wise decision or not?
for latest MBP 13" its seems powerful enough for eGPU unlike 2016< which plague with bandwidth issue. (some additional step to disable and re-allocate resources)
but for your purpose about connecting mouse/keyboard on your eGPU you might be disappointed its common issue including Auros Gaming Box for usb 3.0 hub seems not working well (it keeps disconnecting). I wasn't able to resolve on my late 2016 model (still waiting for my new model to arrived)
I'm also using my LG 43" 4k monitor works well with Total Warhammer II, Never tried yet with PUBG and MMORPG game though coz of internet issue at home still being resolve (using iphone lte for internet lol)
Yes. I play pubg on a worse set up and get 60fps @ 1440.
