TwinMotion - now owned by Epic - is (almost) entirely GPU based. I downloaded the now-free app yesterday and it maxed out my GPU [Radeon Pro Vega 64 with 16 GB] but used almost none of my 10 cores. Insanely impressive ... although it felt like my Mac was going to melt from the heat generated! I have yet to figure out how to generate images with custom pixel dimensions through...

I thought corona is CPU based?

Ah, I might be mistaken then.

For the cost of an eGPU enclosure plus a card you could have a dedicated PC with multiple cards that would have superior performance.

Using a Remote Desktop connection you could work on the road and send the rendering jobs to the rendering station in the office

I'm not suggesting the workstation travel with you, you would only need the laptop. The workstation stays in the office and you connect to it via a remote desktop session upload and start the rendering task and continue working on your laptop while rendering happening.
