One of the ways to improve the graphic performance of your computer without the need to make major changes is the so-called eGPUs (BlackMagic eGPU pro), which use Thunderbolt 3 connections to connect to the devices, which in turn can take advantage of the external video card without much effort. The solution is used mainly by notebook owners, who are limited to the GPU soldered on their device.

One of the most interesting options for Mac users was the BlackMagic eGPU Pro, equipped with an AMD Radeon RX Vega 56. Launched in 2018 , the product was aimed at those who make heavy use of GPU, such as video editors and 3D artists, bringing a DisplayPort port with support for 5K monitors, a base clock of 1.156MHz and performance similar to what was found on the iMac Pro. high performance promises, its price was quite salty, reaching US $ 1,199.

BlackMagic eGPU Pro promised graphics performance similar to that seen on the iMac Pro.

However, the device has just announced its end, according to a BlackMagic representative on the Cult of Mac website. According to him, with the discontinuity of the GPU chip, the manufacturer is no longer able to produce its eGPU. This does not seem to have affected the company’s most affordable solution, equipped with a Radeon Pro 580, which continues to be sold on Apple’s website, even if it is out of stock, and with no expected return.

With the confirmation of the arrival of RDNA 2 GPUs to PCs soon, it should not be long before we see a new eGPU using a Radeon RX 5000 GPU. It was expected that the new architecture would debut on new generation consoles, but AMD revealed in a conference for investors, the launch of video cards with the news before the end of the year.
