Hi, my friend has a mac pro 2013 late model and he would like to connect a eGPU. I only use a pc and don't know much about macs would someone suggest a eGPU case that would be compatible and a GPU to go into it? I've tried looking about online but I've read there's compatibility issues because of Apple dropping support for older hardware. Thanks!

To my knowledge they require a Mac with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C style plug) which means Macbook Pro Late 2016 models onwards.

Whether that's the final word and whether any unofficial support for older models can be enabled, I don't know.  You'd probably be better off asking on a Mac specific forum.
