My photo raw converter software DXO Optics Pro requirements are listed here:(sorry, I couldn't get the english link)
For graphics it requires"DirectX 9.0c Compatible graphics card with 512 MB VRAM for GPU acceleration"
For open gl technology it would require"NVIDIA GeForce graphics card 460 or higher, ATI Radeon HD 58xx or higher for OpenCL technology."
Does the Eve V fulfill these requirements?
The first part most definitely yes, and the second part... well, that card is old, so essentially yes too but these are minimal requirements, right? I wouldn't expect legendary performance, hehe
Im afraid not. That kind of GPU is basically an equivalent of a proper gaming console of today, like the PS4 and XBOX One. There is no way the Eve V could com close to that.
Assuming the Eve V could perform similarly to the Intel HD 520 (the one inside the Surface Pro 4 Core i5), the performance would roughly be one third of the GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5850.

It depends on whether the minimums are performance or support based. If it's performance based @Patrick_Hermawan is right and if it will run it will be quite slow. If its the version of OpenCL (or OpenGL, you switch between them) that needs to be support you should be fine
but there is support for egpu's via thunderbolt 3 port
So I have a Macbook Air 13" 2013 model using the Haswell i7 with 8GB of RAM and Intel HD graphics 5000. I've used it without any trouble for the past 3 years for graphic design purposes.
Would the Eve V give me any issues doing Photoshop or Illustrator design work on it compared to my current Air?
I guess the Eve V would perform better:1. newer CPU2. more RAM3. stronger graphis:http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp%5B%5D=3255&cmp%5B%5D=2552
