  • Knowing Apple, likely not. I would recommend checking iFixit sometime in the near future to see if they do a teardown.

    Can I upgrade the GPU chip in the Blackmagic eGPU?

    No, the design has been optimized for quiet operation so it’s better suited for creative customers. This means the design is not a simple chassis with a PCIe card plugged in, but an integrated electronics, mechanical and cooling design that cannot have the GPU chip upgraded or changed.
