Question Do external GPUs for laptops work effectively?

I'm new to PC gaming and I have a lower-end HP laptop.

Processor: Intel Core i3 Processor, 2.40GHz
Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 620
And 12GB of RAM.

For example I would really like to play Cities: Skylines on medium or high, using mods and all that good stuff, but this laptop can hardly run the game smoothly at all on the lowest settings. It runs and plays, but very choppy.

Would a USB compatible (or other) external GPU fix this? Do they actually work for laptops?
