    Man, most laptops don't support eGPU because they're not designed for gamers. Same story with the Yoga 720 - it's a work/luxury machine - even if it had TB3, the BIOS wouldn't recognize or pick up the eGPU. Calm down already.

    It has tb3 :)
    i know that an egpu needs a compatible bios and also specifical drivers/firmware for tb3 port

    Edit
    a mbp 15 2016 is a luxury laptop but it is compatible with a egpu

    Hopefully Lenovo won't completely screw up the quality control like Dell has. It's a pretty low bar, though.
