Best eGPUs for Huawei MateBook X Pro

MateBook X Pro

Huawei's MateBook X Pro is an impressive clamshell Ultrabook available with a discrete NVIDIA MX150 graphics card (GPU). If you'd like a bit of extra graphics processing power for some gaming or design, the Thunderbolt 3 port on the side of the laptop can be used to hook up an external GPU (eGPU). The port uses two lanes of PCIe instead of four, but it can still certainly support an eGPU. Here are the best eGPU options for your Huawei MateBook X Pro.

If we're picking an eGPU

All of the above eGPUs will provide extra graphics power to your Huawei MateBook X Pro for better gaming or design performance. If you don't already have a GPU to put into an empty enclosure, seriously consider the Gigabyte AORUS eGPU (opens in new tab) with included NVIDIA GTX 1070. Considering GTX 1070 cards on their own are still around the $400 mark, getting an enclosure and GPU for about $550 is a steal of a deal.
