I just got a Mantiz Venus eGPU with a Radeon 5700 XT. Finder lets me select a program and use Get Info to set the program to use the External GPU if it's available.

I do not see that "Prefer External GPU" is an available setting that I can toggle with Path Finder. Or is it available and I am just not locating it?

    Here is Finder Info and Path Finder Info. No option to turn on to use eGPU, unless it's located someplace else and I am missing it.
