I am looking for the best performance card for my 2014/2015 MacBook pro to do Video edit on Resolve. I am tired to wait all the night to export a video. Can you also tell me what script I should run ?

I'd recommend the Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming Box. You also need the Apple USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 cable. Software wise you need either Purge-Wrangler script or automate-eGPU EFI boot loader.

The Breakaway Puck 570 pairs very well with the 13-inch 2015 MBP, too. It's my wife's setup and she is very happy with it. You only need additional software on MacOSX, TB2 works fine in Bootcamp without any hack.

Do you "need" or "want" something bigger? From personal experience I can tell you, there is no need (but wishes of course).

I need a loot of graphic power because I do a lot of 4K transcoding
