AirPort board to external GPU
Hello! Is it possible to replace AirPort to this device and connect external GPU http://m.banggood.com/MAC-Version-V8_0-E... ?
Is this a good question?
First you'll need to talk with the company that makes this product for what models they support as well as what graphics cards they have tested.
Frankly, I don't see this as such a good idea with this MacBook Pro series you have or even needed!
Lets look at the two versions of this system they both have the Intel Iris Pro 5200 intergraded GPU's within the Haswell CPU. The dual Graphics models have a second GPU which offers better graphics performance than the built-in GPU. These systems offer a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (see the links above).
But, lets say the built-in GPU options doesn't cut it and maybe you don't have the dual GPU model and you want more graphics power what to do??
Well, I would go with a Thunderbolt connected PCIe case to then host the GPU card/s this is by far safer and offers much better performance then the PCI Express mini card slot of the WiFi adapter and you don't give up your WiFi services or need to cut a hole in your case to feed the cable.
As far as data flow rates thats not an easy question to answer. While one can quote a connection paths data rate, the image data source location and the rest of the systems performance impacts what you'll see. Some of this also deals with what kind of data you are working with. As an example someone editing a video or someone editing an animation composition Vs someone playing a heavily graphical game are dependent on different elements of the system.
Here's some external port max throughput numbers:
