Hi All,


I am a newby considering setting up the following system, but I am concerned whether or not it will work. Can anyone give me some insight?


Macbook pro late 2013 (supports metal 2) with dedicated nvidia GPU. Currently running 10.14. Note that I have thunderbolt 2, and that egpu support is not "officially" supported. You have to enable it like in the following: 


To make my system more blender friendly, I was considering something like a RX 580, or maybe vega 56-64 egpu in a thunderbolt 3 chassis.


I would use the following equipment:

Apple Thunderbolt Cable (2.0 m) - White - Apple 

Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter - Apple


Thanks! I'm excited to maybe join the community!
