Is the Blackmagic eGPU compatible with a 2012 MacBook Pro, using a thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter?
3 Answers from the Community
I read on OWC's website that the "apple" adaptor is the only thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adaptor that will work with the Akitio external gpu which is a thunderbolt 3 just like the black magic. They say it will limit the bandwith to 1375mb/s due to the thunderb2 limitations. I still do not know for sure if the black magic or the Sonnet Puck, or the Akitio would actually work well connected this way. Anyone tested this yet?

While it is technically possible, the process is much more involved than a cable adapter. The performance increase will also not be nearly as great nor is this method officially supported.
