I find the idea of eGPU compelling. Sadly, the performance hit is quite noticeable from the tests I’ve done with a 2018 MBP. Also app-support is quite sketchy - and the cost overhead is substantial.

Really, the MacMini is quite a dissapointment for video-professionals. Premiere, FCPX and Resolve really loves a fast GPU. The latest and greatest MacMini have a very sad chip. I don’t see how they couldn’t have added a small VEGA-model in there. Intel even has the 4-core + Vega bundle.

No clue what Apple is thinking there. They have a 10 GbE option but no dGPU?

The new MacMini will replace our current server very well however. It’s almost a perfect replacement there.
