I'm looking to get some extra graphical horsepower for my 15" tbMBP. As soon as LG makes shielded Ultrafine displays available I'm planning to pick one of those up too. The issue comes with selecting the right enclosure for GPU and how will it play with LG display. I've looked at AKITIO Node as its the most affordable option but after watching a video by Dave Lee, I'm not entirely sure how would it work? Dave says you need to have the monitor connected to eGPU unit for optimal performance and having signal sent back to MacBook and then to display wouldn't be ideal. I'm not very knowledgeable concerning these types of connections and how much data is being transferred. Does anyone have an idea of what kind of a performance loss are we talking about here, is it 10% or 50% ? Would it be possible to daisy chain the display if eGPU enclosure with 2 TB3 ports were available? Alternatively connecting LG display>USB-C to DisplayPort adapter>eGPU>MacBook and drive the monitor in 4k, does this sound viable? It's not like there aren't alternatives to Ultrafine display as both Asus PA32u and LG's own 32UD99 look very promising but I'd prefer to get 5k if possible.
