Laptops designed for external GPU?

Hello. 

As I've noticed the newer laptops nowadays comes with an USB 3.1 Type-C port and as many laptops comes with a "graphics card" integrated to their cpu instead of a gpu that could leave more room for cooling the system and thus making a solution with an external graphics card a more viable solution for gaming. What do you guys think?

Well, external gpu is better with an external display. Using the external gpu on the build-in display will lose decent amount of processing power. It's a decent solution, if you want to game and being portable at the same time.

 

Btw,not all of the type-C ports are thunderbolt 3 ports. Be careful if you are looking for an external GPU solution.

Well I haven't bought a new laptop yet. This was a thought experiment as I was thinking about a portable solution rather than a heavy suitcase aka gaming laptop.

Not always equal to TB3 for eGPU. And TB3 laptops don't come cheap
