How much would an eGPU help me out with blender performance?
I have a Mac Pro 2013.
- 3.5GHz 6-core with 12MB of L3 cache
- 64GB of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC
- Dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM each
- 256GB PCIe-based SSD
Just wondering if an eGPU would get me better viewport performance and render times.
I’m thinking of buying this product:
Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 550W
NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, 11 GB, 3 DP, HDMI (3584 CUDA Cores)
Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter
