    Just wondering but every time you plug in a eGPU into a MacBook does the Mac need to restart every time? Or is there a way to avoid that?

    Many AMD cards (RX 480/580) only require a log off and log in. But, you have to use Apple certified eGPU box. eGPU Have a look this website, many great builds. Using eGPU in high Sierra is really easy now, since the OS can recognise most AMD cards, and some older N-cards.
