Despite Apple Silicon currently working solely with its own on-board GPU cores, Apple is researching how to support more options, like PCI-E GPUs, all working in tandem.
The forthcoming Mac Pro is reportedly unlikely to add support for GPU PCI-E cards, as well as not allowing user-upgradeable RAM.
While Apple embraced Thunderbolt 3 eGPU technology for years, it doesn't have the same love for the upgrade option for its Macs since the launch of Apple Silicon. Here's how Apple's relationship with eGPUs started, matured, died — and could come back.
An update issued to macOS Monterey Thursday morning has resolved most of the issues impacting PCI-E graphics cards in eGPU enclosures and the Mac Pro.
Apple's update to macOS Monterey 12.3 is causing problems for handful of Mac users, with some PCI-E GPU cards not delivering the speed that they used to in not just eGPU enclosures, but in the Mac Pro as well.
Sonnet Technologies has announced a number of eGPU product bundles featuring AMD's flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card that can bring the card's capabilities to the Mac.
On Tuesday, Sonnet announced the DuoModo expansion system that can enclose your Mac mini, and either PCI-E expansion cards or a video card, in a compact space not much larger than just an eGPU enclosure itself — and we've been creating content with it for a month.
Sonnet has announced a pair of eGPU Breakaway Pucks for Thunderbolt 3 Intel-based Macs which can greatly improve performance compared to built-in GPUs.
The Sonnet eGPU Breakaway Box 750 and 750ex are Thunderbolt 3 eGPU expansion systems with the biggest available power supply on the market at 750W.
