Is an eGPU worth it

Budget (including currency): 400

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Halo Infinite

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

So I recently purchased an Asus Laptop:

 

Specs: I9 Processor

16 gb Ram

3070 Ti 8 gb

1 Tb M.2 Hd

The screen advertises 300 Hz

windows 11

 

This is my first gaming laptop and I guess I was not educated enough about laptop gpus. I am only pulling about 58 FPS. I have a 2080 super in my main pc and I get up to 240 fps if not more. I guess my question is can I achieve a much higher FPS on my laptop and do I have the wrong settings? I was looking into eGPU, and my question is if I had a portable gpu would it make that much of a difference and can I play it on my 300Hz Display on my laptop and get a higher FPS?

There are dedicated GPUs (PCIe-card based) and iGPUS (integrated into the CPU). Which do you mean?

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

I am honestly not sure, I believe non integrated. How would I know if its non integrated tho?

 

This is my laptop

That one has a mobile version of the RTX3070ti, according to the listing. So presumably, a dedicated, but a mobile version with slightly less capability. As to the lower FPS, check to be sure you don't have vertical synchronization or any other image stabilization enabled, most all of these will cut frame rate. In some cases, it's necessary due to tearing and artifacting, but when it isn't, it needlessly cuts FPS. Unfortunately, you don't have any real options for upgrade with a laptop, but if it truly has the 3070ti chipset, you shouldn't need to.

Have you set the power management to high performance?
Also if your CPU have igpu, check whether the system actually switch to the 3070ti during gaming.

Also additional note :

Even in prime condition your laptop probably won't perform as well as your main PC due to thermal throttle.

So don't over-expect.
