Will an eGPU connected via Thunderbolt work well with vMix?

If you are wondering if an eGPU will work well with your vMix application the short answer is “No, because it will not communicate quickly enough for vMix”.
External Graphics Cards (eGPUs) are not supported by vMix due to the very limited bandwidth over Thunderbolt and potential driver issues.
If you are considering an eGPU for use with vMix, please instead take a look at our recommended system requirements or better yet, our tried and tested Reference Systems. Our Reference Systems include laptops with dedicated Nvidia GPUs for great vMix performance.
