You'd have to go to the MacBook Pro's page to discover it, but the Blackmagic eGPU is there, and it's labeled as "only at Apple." This means Apple partnered with Blackmagic for this specific model.
Blackmagic Design has announced a new "Blackmagic eGPU" designed in collaboration with Apple. Ars' Samuel Axon found that the keys are quieter than those on previous MacBook Pros, and they have a less click-y feel that nods to those pre-2016 models. In fact, if you are running DaVinci Resolve 15 you can expect increased performance for editing with more real time effects, color corrections with more nodes and ResolveFX such as film grain, light rays, blurs and more.

Get desktop-class graphics performance on your MacBook Pro with the Blackmagic eGPU.
