  1. At CES, Asus announced the Asus RoG XG2, and Razer announced the Razer Core eGPU docking stations. Both use Thunderbolt 3 to connect to a laptop. These boxes are pretty sexy. I don't think prices have been announced yet, but these seem like they'd be ideal eGPU solutions. Most of the "DIY" is taken out of the equation (no cable soldering), making the use of an eGPU much more approachable for more Mac gamers. Anyone have any idea whether these will work? Both of them specify Thunderbolt 3, so would these be backward compatible with our Thunderbolt 2 Macs? I'm trying to decide whether to go down the DIY assemble-it-yourself and solder-it-yourself route, or whether to wait a few months for one of these eGPU docking stations to become available.

  2. Just curious, is he still getting good frame rates when there are hundreds of units onscreen and lots of spells/effects happening?

    Perhaps try plugging your external monitor into a different port on the back of your eGPU video card? Unlike Windows, it could be the web drivers for OS X don't enable all the ports in your 3rd party video card, and the monitor is plugged into one of those nonfunctional ports. Good luck with it.

    Apologies for the noob question, I'm new here... Is it possible to set the eGPU monitor as the primary monitor in OS X? Would that allow Diablo 3 to run full screen on the eGPU monitor? I'm wondering the same thing about WoW. If I can't run WoW full screen on the eGPU monitor then I probably won't bother with an eGPU. Thanks for any information.
