Afternoon, I need help! 

I’ve just bought several GoPro Hero9’s for filming. I’m shooting in 4K 30 frames a second and my MacBook 2015 can’t Handel the footage at all when editing via Premier Pro. 

Could someone please suggest an external graphics card set up including adaptors etc as this is all above me! Ideally under a £1000. Thanks in advance Smile

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

@beard_and_luxury, The hardware I'd recommend are Mantiz Saturn Pro, PowerColor Red Devil RX 5700 XT, Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter, and Apple Thunderbolt 2 cable. You also need a software to enable eGPU functionality on the 2015 MacBook Pro. Use Purge-Wrangler.
