I saw success build on 2016 15-inch/13-inch MBP and 2017 13 inch MBP.
There are other successful builds using RX580 but with different encloses on 2017 15 MBPs.
I don't know for sure, but it should work on 2017 15 inch MBP.

Please check egpu.io to make sure. It seems there are some difficulties (but still possible) for 2018 15 MBP because of the T2 chip and the dGPU.

This egpu closure has some issues when upgrading the vga. PSU needs to be upgraded but because of the form factor, it is wayyyy expensive. Moreover, other gpus don't run well in this box. Probably the driver or something is the problem.

It will not work at all with any type of USB even 3.1usbc

It will work with any type of thunderbolt (adapter needed for 1&2)

AMD GPU's are supposedly plug and play. Im tempted to try this out.. (just got a 2018 15)

This is not much more expensive than a good tb3 dock...

Just for curiosity's sake, has anyone tried this in a normal USB 3.1 C port? Is it just less frame per second/bandwidth from the card? Or does it just not function at all? I've set up my old laptop many years ago with a Mini PCI-E egpu from some china website and it worked fine, but just had less frames than a desktop would because it was only PCI-E x4 or something.

I have the 1070 aorus gaming box works great on my 2012 & 2015 retina MacBook pros as well as a couple 2017 iMacs

For thunderbolt 1/2 Macs you need apples adapter.
For Nvidia cards you need Nvidia web drivers ( currently not released for Mojave)

Works great for gaming on Windows and work on Mac OS.
For older thunderbolt I'd recommend a external monitor for gaming.

As for upgradablity It is a mini enclosure so you either need to modify enclosure or use something else as a case.
Otherwise your stuck with mini cards.

I was able to get this to work but barely.

The cooler was slightly too large so I opted for a 3rd party cooler but if I didn't care or return policy as I was just testing I could have taken a Dremel to some parts of the plastic that were making it not quite fit.

Can we upgrade the GPU to something more powerful in the future?
In other words, is the box worth $200?
Thanks
