Can this eGPU be used for high speed bignum computation?

eGPUs are often used to provide extra power and speed to computationally complex programs. Assuming the Mac has the required languages interpreters and compilers (e.g.), can this eGPU be used this way, or is it strictly designed for graphics support?

  • Of course. As clearly stated in the product's specifications, this unit has "36 discreet [sic] compute units for up to 5.5 teraflops of processing power", and can accelerate DaVinci Resolve renders by up to 700%.
