13-inch MacBook Pro versus the 16-inch MacBook Pro ... both with eGPUs

July 18th, 2020 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

Can an eGPU box with a desktop GPU close the gap between the 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro?


GRAPH LEGEND

16in eGPU = Late 2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch, Intel Core i9-9980HK 2.4GHz 8-Core processor, AMD Radeon Pro 5600M discrete GPU, and Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU with 8G GDDR6 memory inside the AKiTiO Node Titan eGPU plugged into Thunderbolt 3 port
13in eGPU = Mid 2020 MacBook Pro 13-inch, Intel Core i7-1068NG7 2.3GHz Quad-Core processor, Iris Plus integrated Graphics, and Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU with 8G GDDR6 memory inside the AKiTiO Node Titan eGPU plugged into Thunderbolt 3 port
16in 5600M = Late 2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch, Intel Core i9-9980HK 2.4GHz 8-Core processor, AMD Radeon Pro 5600M discrete GPU
16in 5500M = Late 2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch, Intel Core i9-9980HK 2.4GHz 8-Core processor, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M discrete GPU
13in Iris Plus= Mid 2020 MacBook Pro 13-inch, Intel Core i7-1068NG7 2.3GHz Quad-Core processor, Iris Plus integrated Graphics

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

The 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro really can closely match the GRAPHICS performance of the 2019 16in MacBook Pro... IF both have an eGPU box with the identical desktop graphics card.

But before you get too excited, even with an eGPU box with fast graphics card, the 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro gets smoked running 'pure' CPU intensive tasks. Here is one example to drive that point home:
