I have a Macbook Pro (13 inch, two Thunderbolt 3 ports) connected to two external monitors. I'm looking to purchase a GPU to sit in an eGPU enclosure (the AKiTiO node) purely to be able to support more external monitors. So I don't need the GPU to be especially performant (right?), just to be able to support e.g. 4 external monitors, not of an especially high resolution.
So my questions:
- Will a Thunderbolt-3 connected eGPU really allow me to use multiple monitors through it? I know it can at least support 1 (at the cost of one thunderbolt port anyway)
- Is GPU performance really unimportant here if I'm only displaying e.g. desktop applications (e.g. text editors) on the external monitors?
- What GPU would you recommend?
