    I have a late 2013 rMBP 13" with two thunderbolt 2.0 ports and I wonder if there are any eGPUs that I can use?

    I did, but Intel recently gave eGPUs their blessing and I was wondering if someone would come up with an elegant solution now.

    They may well do but no one has yet as far as I can tell, I expect they are waiting for thunderbolt 3 to give the bandwidth to get the full utilisation of the eGPU.

    Since your google-fu seems to need a bit of training, I'll help you out.

    http://www.sonnettech.com/product/thunderbolt/index.html

    The express-III on there with a proper power-supply would work.

    This would likely also work.

    There are other products similar to those two if you search for "Thunderbolt PCIe enclosure"
