I'm running a pretty top spec MacBook Pro High Sierra 10.13.6

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Interesting point about data transfer and using an external monitor, will check that tomorrow and let you know. Scared to upgrade to Mojave just yet, has anyone else?

Today I walked out of the apple store with the cheaper of the 2 blackmagic eGpus.

Compatible with Mac with Thunderbolt 3 ports Radeon Pro 580 graphics processor with 8GB of GDDR5 memory

At first glance my comps look a bit smoother to the eye, not the mega difference I was expecting but noticeable. Will definitely report back as I play with it a little more. Wondering if I should upgrade to mojave, could I get better results?

I’ll also get a chance to try the more expensive egpu, they don’t keep those in stock unfortunately:( Wonder if I can daisy chain the two? Anyway I’m looking forward to that one even more.

If anyone’s has any interesting tests they’d like me to do let me know. I won’t have long ;)

I'm getting much better results parsing the data by splitting the text than processing two X and Y lists and merging them. Up to almost 15fps which is ideal. Thanks again Bodysoulspirit

GeorgeToledo I agree. Did you ever experiment with this 6 camera setup, would love to see ;)
