Can this work with an iPad pro?
Since iPad pro has the same shaped plug as the MacBook pros, I'd imagine you could plug this in and use it for graphics processing. I expect apple has somehow locked that down in the iPadOS, unless they maybe just don't list it as being compatible here but there's a way to get it to work?

The Blackmagic eGPU is a Thunderbolt device. The iPad Pro does not have Thunderbolt. USB-C is not Thunderbolt. USB-C is a connector that can transmit different types of signals (Power, USB 2.0, USB 3.x, USB4, DisplayPort, USB + DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, VirtualLink). Not all USB-C ports can transmit all types of signals. Learn more about those signals and connectors on wikipedia.
