Depending on the monitor you buy or have, it is possible that the use of an external eGPU applied to your Macbook is an option to consider. It can be cheaper than buying a full desktop, or you just need some extra power you have the Mac you have.But of course, what eGPU buy? There are several models in the market, and your decision may vary depending on the graphics card you want to insert. Let’s see what possibilities we have, always staying with those who use Thunderbolt 3 to ensure maximum compatibility.
OWC Mercury Helios FX
You may recognize the OWC brand for its RAM, preferred by some to extend that of their Mac or PC. They have this box perfectly compatible with the Macs, with enough power both to run the card you put on it and to charge a 15-inch MacBook Pro at the same time. It costs $ 319 on its official website and Apple recommends it for use on AMD Radeon RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56 and Radeon Pro WX 7100 cards.
PowerColor Devil Box
The DevilBox is another external box for GPUs to consider if you are going to use it with AMD Radeon RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56 and Radeon Pro WX 7100. It costs $ 449.99 in Newegg, although at the moment it does not distribute in Spain.
Sapphire Gear Box
The Gear Box can give up to 500W of power, so you will not have any power problems with this eGPU either. Apple recommends it for AMD Radeon RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580 and Radeon Pro WX 7100 cards (the RX Vega 56 is excluded in this case). It will start selling in three months.
Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box
From this box, there are 350W, 550W and 650W models. If you have a 13-inch MacBook, any model is worth it, but choose one of the two most powerful models if you have a 15-inch MacBook Pro. Apple recommends this eGPU if you have an AMD Radeon RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580 or Radeon Pro WX 7100.
The two most powerful models are also recommended for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56, and the more powerful 650W model can also support the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, Vega Frontier Edition Air and the Radeon Pro WX 9100. It is sold on Amazon by 357.92 euros.
This is not an eGPU in its strict definition, but we have decided to add it as a bonus because it can be perfect for all those who simply want to use one or two external 4K monitors connected to your Mac when it cannot display many pixels on its own. It will be sold soon for $219.
The creators of this accessory tell us: this solution is not to be able to play with good graphics quality, but for those who simply need extra work space in the form of high-resolution external monitors. If you want to play at the best resolutions and frames per second, then what is recommended is an eGPU.
