    Review: Blackmagic eGPU – quiet, beautiful, and limited in scope [Video]

    The Blackmagic eGPU is an external graphics enclosure sold exclusively (for the time being) at the Apple Store. It’s a notable product for several of reasons. First and foremost, it’s the first time that Apple has sold an external graphics enclosure in its store. This makes sense, considering that macOS was recently upgraded with official eGPU support in version 10.13.4 back in the spring.Another reason to take note is that the Blackmagic eGPU is the first external graphics chassis to in…
