Except that right out the gate using an EGPU cut at least 30% of the power out of the card, and it runs at 4x rather than 16x. For most they would never even know, World of warcraft it is not bad. However, I definitely get higher Frame Rates, and higher settings when plugged into the motherboard. If they were to use two TB3 cables and bridged them to one GPU to get 80Gb that would bring us much closer to 126Gb that flows over 16x PCI-E. However, with PCI-E 4 we are doubling the 126Gb (15.75GB) of bandwidth that the current PCI-E 3rd gen has.Quote from Endgadget
This means that you'll be able to connect an eGPU to a Mac mini for example, and not lose any graphics performance.
While I am a fan of the Mac Mini with eGPU and it meets much of my needs. The Hack provides a lot of raw power the mac mini just can not provide.
