  1. It could possibly get bottle necked, yes.

    Its a eGPU
  4. What bus are you using thunderbolt or express port? An express port running at 1x pci-e speeds will bottleneck it before the cpu gets a chance too.

    Those normally use a 1x bus, the bus is going to be your bottleneck not the cpu.
