Best eGPU for 2012 MacBook Pro 15" retina

PostThu Dec 06, 2018 5:50 pm

Would an eGPU improve the performance of DVR on my old MacBook Pro or would it not help?

I am experiencing the blackframe / no video on screen issue on certain clips. Not sure if this is because of the age of my machine as I never experience freezes or spinning beachballs, but I am looking into a solution to improve graphics performance.

Input much appreciated!

Your thunderbolt is not fast enough for an eGPU.
