External video card for MacBook Pro?

So is there a T-bolt2 PCIe expansion chassis I can attach an Nvidea graphics card (Quadro K4000?) to (Macbook Pro 2.8GHz 2014, Nvidia 750 onboard) for GPU power-hungry programs like Resolve/10-bit support? How can I maximize the thru-put of T2 for GPU leverage?

mLink makes a nice T-bolt expansion chassis that's also more cost-effective than most.

Apologies again for the slower response to you than yours. There seems to be some debate over GPU/T-bolt interface (other post). Do you know anyone who's doing it now, hacked or otherwise? And thank you David, a veteran pro who finds time for this wishing...

No GPU over Thunderbolt supported.

I believe there are some hacks.

Sorry for the slow response. Grrr. I wondered if that was pushing the interface. Not one who fully understands the mechanism of why/why not, the practicality of "Is it made to work?""No" is close enough. I assume hacks might be of the tonymacx86 (or other)-type? I'll keep searching: I can't be the only one who wants to do this. Thanks for the heads up...
