  • The BMD eGPU has more powerful graphics than the MBP2019, therefore the display should be connected to the BMD eGPU. The BMD eGPU is the only eGPU that allows a Thunderbolt display to be connected this way (without extra hardware).

    Connect the LG 5K to the BMD eGPU with the display's Thunderbolt 3 cable.

    Connect the BMD eGPU to the MBP2019 with the BMD eGPUs Thunderbolt 3 cable.

    Connect other Thunderbolt 3 devices to the other side of the MBP2019 if there are available ports. Otherwise it doesn't matter where you connect other Thunderbolt 3 devices.

    To be sure, you can compare performance of various tasks with the display connected directly to the MBP2019 instead.
