Support for an external GPU (or eGPU) effectively provides VR-capable graphics for all of Apple’s Thunderbolt 3-capable Mac line, including the MacBook Pros. They’re not very portable, but they’re powerhouses — designed to crush and process the millions of pixels a VR setup requires.
This means that, yes, soon you’ll be able to — with the appropriate additional hardware — run a VR experience like Star Trek’s Bridge Crew on your Mac. (I can hear our VR editor Russell Holly squealing from here.) But more importantly, developers of VR experiences can build those games on a Mac.
