The best eGPUs, aka external GPUs, make it easy to upgrade your computer's graphics performance whenever you need to.

The idea is straightforward. Take any desktop graphics card, capable of delivering the kind of performance needed to run professional 3D applications, and put it into an external enclosure connected to a PC, rather than housed inside a tower chassis or shrunk down to fit into a laptop. Using Thunderbolt technology, a eGPU offers the freedom to use 3D software on devices where the option for powerful graphics hardware otherwise doesn't exist.
