Need to set up VR-READY eGPU for MacBookPro

Hi People!

This info is probably to be found somewhere but I struggle to find the most up to date solution that is proven to work.

I have started out as a VR content creator but I learned very fast that my mac is not VR ready and much too slow.

  • My setup: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) / 2,9 GHz Intel Core i7 / 16 GB / Radeon Pro 560 4096 MB


  • I don't have 5000€ to spend on a new iMacPro yet. So all I can do is upgrading the GPU for now.

    Could please someone recommend a good eGPU enclosure and a good GPU that would support the HTC VIVE
    and boost the speed of editing 4-6k 360° videos in Premiere and aftereffects.

    Would you recommend Nvidia cards? So I can get back by beloved CUDA acceleration.
    (but i'm not sure that they are compatible at the moment)

    I have around 800€ to spend

    Or do you say: It's just a minor improvement.
    Save the money and put it towards a proper workstation computer (I'm actually ready to switch to PC when I see the price development for macs)

    Thank you.
    T

    AFAIK there's no official VR hardware support on Macs in the first place so you would be spending money on a thing that will not even work.
