Will this work with a mid 2015 MacBook Pro, AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB?
Asked by: Erik
Yes, it will technically work if you use the Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter. However, you will NOT get the full bandwidth and power from the graphics card. There is a bottleneck with Thunderbolt 2 for external GPU.

If I put the AMD Pro WX 9100 card in this box can I render 2 computers at the same time with this one box?
Asked by: Wayne
You cannot connect two computers at the same time to this (or any eGPU solution). I'm not sure what the other guy is talking about when he says the BB 550w will not work with the WX 9100. I don't see why it wouldn't. It's kind of funny to me that Sonnet lists each and every GPU that is compatible with the eGPU box. Any PCIe card would work, provided the power supply can give the PCIe card (be it a GPU or whatever else) enough power and the card physically fits in the box (most do). PCI Express is a standard, every device that is PCI-compliant follows it. Every GPU from NVidia and AMD is PCI-compliant. I have put GPUs not listed on Sonnet's website in the box, and to absolutely no surprise, they work.
