I would like to know if I can use this device with my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) if I use Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2019 and/or Davinci Resolve 15 and if I can, which will it work best with?
No, the 2015 MBP features Thunderbolt 2 ports which aren't compatible in driving the eGPU. Thunderbolt 3 is required.
I have the current one and it only supports two displays plugged into it. 1st via HDMI output and 2nd via thunderbolt adapter to HDMI. I run a 3 display system and it would be nice if i could have a single cable going into my MacBook Pro rather than have top plug one of the displays into the mac directly.
Would i be able to plug two screen direct into the eGPU then plug one more into the thunderbolt out?
If you connect your mac to eGPU Pro using thunderbolt 3 cable, the eGPU Pro has 3 output port: TB3, HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.4. Therefore, you can connect 3 monitors to this eGPU Pro (if you are using 1 cable per port). Of couse, you can buy tb3 split to 2 dp adaptor, then you can plug 4 monitors, i think.
Wanting to get this primarily for Mac but wondered if it would be compatible with Windows running through Parallels for some light gaming?
absolutely, plug my MBPro into this, a 34" USB-c monitor into that, and run parallels for our teaching work on a daily basis.
I want to know if I can boot into Windows with Boot Camp and use this eGPU with my Mac. I am planning on using Windows with my Mac to play games.
I can now confirm, using the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter you can use up to 2 Apple 27-inch Thunderbolt Displays [daisy changed; i.e. connecting one to the adaptor and connecting the second to the Thunderbolt 2 port on the first display]; in addition to using the Display Port connection.
So as long as you have a valid Thunderbolt 3 connection port on you Mac, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro can work with the Apple Thunderbolt Display's [Up to 2].
I'll be using the Blackmagic eGPU Pro with 27" iMac 4.2GHz quad-core 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 64GB 2400MHz DDR4, 2TB Fusion Drive
Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB video memory
