  • I don't think macbook pro ever have lightning port. I am assuming you mean the old thunderbolt 2 port aka mini display port? in that case, no.

    From blackmagic design website.
    Does the Blackmagic eGPU work with all macOS computers?

    The Blackmagic eGPU will work with all Thunderbolt 3 based Apple computers that are running macOS 10.13.6 or later. This includes MacBook Pro computers from the 2016 model year and later, 2017 iMac and iMac Pro.

    Can I use an Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter with an older Thunderbolt 2 computer?

    No, the Blackmagic eGPU won't work with Thunderbolt 2 computers as they don't support the speed required for good eGPU performance.
