@bryan_techguy, Internal display acceleration is not always the easiest when there's a dGPU. It's easier when the dGPU and eGPU are different brands. I think having an Nvidia eGPU will allow your MacBook Pro to have a functional Radeon dGPU which then allow the internal display acceleration to work.

Hey y'all

I'm currently anticipating an overseas move for a year or two so I unfortunately have to part with my desktop and was wondering how far back my laptop would set an eGPU?

My laptop is the lowest spec as I only used it for audio editing/word processing during uni so it has an i3-7100u/4gb ram/128GB SSD. Unfortunately all these parts are non-replaceable (thanks Dell). I was wondering if my computer would even become remotely usable with my current RTX 3080 for video editing, streaming, and gaming (non-AAA titles like league, val, and dead by daylight).

Really hoping I don't have to spend $$$ and rebuild overseas just to ditch the build. If not, is there any best bang for the buck laptop that won't break the bank?

Thanks in advance yall!

@petrified1, XPS 9360 has a full bandwidth Thunderbolt 3 port. However, the dual core i3 + 4GB RAM is the weak link. I think Thunderbolt 3 eGPU is still usable for your needs. The performance loss compared to other RTX 3080 eGPU setups will be more significant. The advantage of going with an TB3 eGPU enclosure is that you only need to add one more component (about $300) to switch between ultrabook and desktop. The enclosure has some value in the second-hand market too.

I'm looking to stream on Twitch and curious if I should buy a new computer or if I can buy an external graphics card (what I udnerstand is an eGPU) to set this up.

(Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)
2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB

Thanks,
Brian
