Would it work with an thunderbolt adaptor?

I have a 2015 MacBook Pro and I would love to have this helping me to edit videos faster. would it work using a male/female adapter on the back of the eGPU? Would the performance be the same?

  • no.

    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.
