Anyone know if this works with the 2013 Mac Pro?

[Eric Santiago] "smiling since now it pushes me to buy a new system."

Me too, but I want to hear whether the new MBP's keyboard issue has been resolved.

eGPU or not, and apart from the keyboard issue, has anyone here tested Resolve 15 with the 2018 MBP? I have performance issues when editing multi-layer video with Resolve 14, using my mid-2014 MBP.

Thunderbolt 3 only, so no.

Hacking the Thunderbolt-3 interface seems to be a lot of trouble to go to in order to achieve slow results. There is a reason TB3 is specified. TB2 or slower is not on par with PCIe 16-lane, which is what the eGPU is trying to emulate. Even though the AMD GPU built-in to the unit seems to be very capable, I don't see it as a desktop substitute yet - just trying to get ahead of those who will try to leverage it beyond the laptop-MacBookPro deployment it was clearly designed for.

Very curious to see how it would perform as a dual-GPU platform with the 2017 27" iMacPro5K with the 580 on-board.

But seeing as TB3 is 4 lanes it doesn't do a very good emulation job of a16 lanes interface. This eGPU idea is just to sell a lot of hardware to folks for whom lower powered systems are sufficient.
