Virtual desktop or eGPU

I’m seeking some advice on how to best access a GPU for TouchDesigner work on my Mac (without an M chip). I’m considering two options and would really appreciate your insights: Should I use an eGPU or a virtual desktop? Which option provides a better experience?
If it’s a virtual desktop, which software/service should I use to have access to a GPU?
if it’s eGPU, which GPU should I get?

Hi @blkphanter,

can you provide the exact Mac model you are using? Might be easier to then get input on what GPUs are compatible.

How does a virtual desktop give you better gpu access?
