Is it compatible with Mac OS X?
BEST ANSWER: It looks like MacOS High Sierra (to be released this fall 2017) will support external graphics processors to the Mac for the first time. I've found work-arounds for other MacOS, but it looks like the official support will come this fall with the new MacOS. This was just announced at WWDC 2017.
Will this work for Macbook Pro 13 Retina Late-2013 using thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter?
BEST ANSWER: The Akitio Node is only compatible with Thunderbolt 3 Computers, and it will not work using a Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 Adapter. Please note that Thunderbolt 2 does not support the necessary bandwidth to run an external eGPU.
Would this work with usb type c?
BEST ANSWER: Though USB-C is the correct connector, The system has to support Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, one is the connector, one is the protocol.
