Hi!

I was about to buy the Lenovo dock with 1050 ti : https://www.amazon.fr/Lenovo-G0-a10170ul-Thunderbolt-Graphique-daccueil/dp/B079JFW3YT

But it sold out everywhere in europe.

As far as you know, is there any alternative out there ?

I saw the acer : https://egpu.io/testing-acer-graphics-dock-xps-13-9360/
But it's old too.

Thanks !

@tamas_bohacs, If you're looking for both Mac and Windows compatibility, the attached link has all of the macOS compatible cards, which would also work with Windows. Most of them are a few generations old at this point, so hopefully you can find a good deal on one: Use an external graphics processor with your Mac - Apple Support

 

@brahim, the Apple recommended enclosures are listed here, though there are others that would work, I'm sure: Use an external graphics processor with your Mac - Apple Support

Have been thinking about my original post and have changed the graphics card for an RX 570. I am still waiting for the Akitio Node to arrive.

But I want to make sure I have the right idea about what I am doing.

I want to use the Node for the internal screen on my iMac (late 2015). Is it possible to do that or do you need to use an external monitor?

Hey! Tired of a constant fan noise I've started to look into eGPU as a solution for overheating. Long story short my machine turns to a starting jet as soon as I plug in an external display, now running a 5k display through thunderbolt cable but previously got similar issues with a standard 27" through HDMI. 

My key requirements are silence, and low power consumption, I don't so much about performance, it only needs to be capable of running a single 5k display, I don't use the machine for gaming. The perfect one would be a fanless unit powered via Thunderbolt 3 and with a thunderbolt 3 output to power the laptop.

  • Machine: MacBook Pro 15" (2018)
  • Display: LG UltraFine 5k
  • OS: Big Sur 11.4

Thank you in advance for recommendations or any other advice.

In my opion, Blackmagic eGPU is perfect for what you need
