I'm looking at getting the new i7 Mac mini. Are there really any benefits to an eGPU if you are not a gamer and do very little video work (occasional editing of 4K drone footage). My main use cases are Xcode, virtual machines (1-2 at any given time), image editing (Lightroom, Pixelmator Pro, Affinity), and of course the usual email, Internet, etc. I will have two 4K monitors connected. It seems the GPU is not used very much for those sorts of applications, but it is tough to get good info. There are also some thoughts that an eGPU can lower the CPU temps, but counter points that it isn't an issue unless the temps get really, really high. I use my computer very heavily and for my livelihood. So I'm not trying to pinch pennies here, but if the difference is hardly noticeable, I'd rather not have an eGPU taking up room on my desk.
