Quick question, if I'm able to let Mac uses the egpu, will Parallels be able to use the GPU as well?

    I just brought the new MacBook pro, and may need it for gaming occasionally. I found out the following link, which may let my MacBook uses the Nvida egpu.
    https://theunlockr.com/how-to-use-nvidia-cards-with-your-mac-egpu/

    So the question is, if I can let my MacBook uses the Egpu, will Parallels use the same Egpu as the system? Or it will still use the Intel igpu?
    Let me know, I'm on the edge of buying the Parallels or just choose boot Camp.
    Thanks

    Hi @PERRYW, it's not possible to connect an eGPU device directly to VM, but you can check this KB article for more info about that.
