Return to Mac 010: Dual eGPU!

Back to Mac It is a series specialized in Mac such as hardware, accessories, I / O, software.

This week's "Back to the Mac" episode is nuts in eGPU setup with two Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 650 units equipped with workstation class 16 GB AMD WX 9100 GPU.

As mentioned above, if you are a user of DaVinci Resolve, or if you are using another application that can use multiple GPUs at the same time, you can set some noteworthy numbers with such settings . For details, please see the latest episode of Back to the Mac.

In DaVinci Resolve it is not surprising that dual eGPU setup will greatly improve export performance. Indeed, I tested this configuration several months ago and confirmed the performance improvement.

But for a long time I wanted to test the MacBook Pro with a faster setup that included the same two eGPU settings. This test uses Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 650s, Apple specifically recommends Apple as the most powerful and versatile eGPU chassis for Mac. Both chassis are combined with the same Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPU as workstation class Vega 64 based card specifically pointed out by Apple as a pairing option with Sonnet's high-end graphics enclosure.

During the filming of this episode I learned something new.2018 MacBook Pro can handle up to 4 eGPUs (2 eGPU per Thunderbolt 3 bus). at the same time. For MacBook Pro or iMac Pro, you can connect an eGPU to one of the available Thunderbolt 3 ports. I tried easily by connecting four eGPUs to the MacBook Pro, but obviously it was absolutely absurd. If you want to know more about it, please tell me under the comment.
