MacBook Pro 13” with UE4?
Hello! I was thinking of buying the MacBook Pro 13” base model, but I am unsure how it would perform. I am guessing that the graphics card isn’t good enough and I need a eGpu, but which gpu would I get? If i get a good gpu, the core might bottleneck its performance, hence my reason to be unsure of what gpu to get so that I don’t waste my money. The specs of the MacBook are:
2.3GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz/ Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640/ 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory/ 128GB SSD storage/ Two Thunderbolt 3 ports
The intel graphics will not cut it. Do you need to buy a MacBook? If that's really a dual core, then you'll be in a world of pain, the SSD is tiny, barely enough for the OS, UE4 and an app or two. The 8GB is problematic as well. That MacBook is a bad idea as a base to start with. Sorry.
Since the eGPU enclosure is already an investment, you should not settle for anything less than GTX 2060 - it's a sweet spot at the moment and will hold its good value for a while. Considering that processor, you might be better off with something like 1660ti, though.
