I want to have three external monitors connected to my Macbook Pro. I want to try keep it as neat as possible so, are there any hubs or ways I can connect three external monitors to my Macbook Pro with one cable?

Previously I've had two external monitors but an issue I ran into is how my Macbook would position the monitors every time I unplugged and plugged them back in (probably because my mac couldn't distinguish each monitor uniquely) so I want to try and avoid those kind of issues.

You can totally do this. Pick any AMD GPU that meets your needs - there are several that drive 3 to 6 displays in the $120 to $200 price point and put that in a thunderbolt 3 EGPU case.

Pretty much anything you can put in a PCI slot will work over thunderbolt and one cable. Basically you’re putting a GPU for the new Mac Pro like the Radeon Pro W5500X MPX Module in an external enclosure.

  • Wonderful, I was hoping for a cheaper solution to tell you the truth but it might actually be a pretty cool setup having an eGPU. Thank you. – Tim Rowley Sep 18 '20 at 0:48
  • There are quite a few, and they are incredible - especially if you know just what you want GPU wise, @TimRowley – bmike Sep 18 '20 at 0:57
  • Also PSA - you probably want to avoid Nvidia unless you’re sure you can get compatible drivers for it. This is a bit of a bummer with beasts like the RTX 3080 being released this fall. – bmike Sep 18 '20 at 3:29
