So i have a plan to buy a new 11th Gen Gaming Laptop, i've known that the Intel Xe Graphics on the 11th Gen Intel Processor is unsupported on macOS, but referring to the specification, it offers much higher GPU,RAM,even Thunderbolt 4 with similar price to the 10th Gen which makes me think, does this means that i can connect it to an External GPU (like the EXP GDC), use a supported GPU (RX Series/Nvidia Kepler) through the External GPU and have Graphics Acceleration?

For 11th Gen Laptos such as the :
- Intel i7 - 11800H
- Intel i9 - 11900H

What about things such as CPU Power Management? Will they be able to work correctly on the 11th Gen Laptops? Some says that 11th Gen CPUs just require faking the CPU ID to be able to work with macOS

I know, but does this means that i could simply buy and add an External supported Desktop GPU (like the RX560) connect it through the Laptop's m.2 PCI Slot (so i don't use the Integrated GPU) and does it always work? Because i see a lot of people does this to their Hackintosh

doesn't really work like that with laptop hacks, best to use either a desktop or a compatible laptop
