[D] eGPU + T480 vs PC
I am at a point where I need to upgrade my machine(it’s 9 years old) in order to cut waiting time as much as possible, and I was gonna go for PC with rtx2070, but then I realized…I don’t game at all and PC is not portable at all. So wouldn’t it be better to go for egpu rtx2070 with some used ThinkPad t470/480 i would use for work and college?? Price would be very comparable, I might even be able to save some money selling my old ThinkPad X1 2nd gen.
My only concern is – how much performance would I lose? How much of a bottleneck in thunderbolt/U-series processors/thermals could I expect – would it still be worth it?
Thanks in advance
