It looks like playback with effects turned on does not really offload much of the processing power to my eGPU. I'd imagine this is frustrating for most laptop users who have an eGPU at home they plug into. Please allow the offloading of graphics processing to the eGPU. Thanks!

Adobe, please speed up Premiere pro. Make it take more advantage from eGPUs.

I completely agree with the comments below.
Brand new Vega 64rx in a Sonnet box. Not using any of the HDMI ports. Forced the app to prefer eGPU.... eGPU doesn't register a single tick when I render or when I use render-heavy effects. This is a deeply frustrating issue that Adobe is not addressing seriously enough. The eGPU set-up is now becoming an essential tool in the modern post pro workflow and Adobe is lagging FAR behind on providing seamless integration for PP users. FCPX Works flawlessly, Davinici Resolve works flawlessly.
If you want to keep your market share Adobe you need to address issues like this or at least provide troubleshooting tips for working with third-party hardware.

I have the same problems. Even when setting Rendering to CUDA, it stil uses the iGPU. Very frustrating

Hey Ryan? on Apple ? on PC ? we see here on the mac mini test (Mojave) that he offloads all on the blackmagic EGPU and hardly uses the internal GPU.
