2019 13" MacBook Pro [8th,4C,U] + RX Vega 56 @32Gbps-TB3 (AKiTiO Node) + macOS 10.14.6 & Win10 1903 [cnon297]

I don't know if that card is overclocked, but they(Youtubers) do have higher score in geekbench4 opencl test. It might be the enclosure because people who get higher score use the enclosure that is much expensive(e.g. Razer core X, Blackmagic) than AKitio Node.
@neo_smith, did you notice my Win10 Geekbench4 OpenCL scores are much higher at 170000 compared to macOS at 130000; a 30% increase in performance. A higher score in Win10 is usually expected. But performance is much closer between macOS and Win10 in the other benchmarks. And it does indicate that the exact same eGPU + Vega 56 and 13" MacBook Pro are capable of much higher performance.
Example: In Rise of the Tomb Raider macOS+Vega56 eGPU often surpasses the same setup in Win10; albeit marginally. In Tomb Raider Win10 only has a 5% advantage over macOS until you get to Ultimate settings. So with such close performance between Win10 & macOS, why does the Vega56 take such a hit in Geekbench4 in macOS?
Yep, I don't know either. But it seems BlackMagic has the inside track with their Vega56 eGPU. I doubt it's overclocked as it would produce more heat and fan noise. But I wouldn't put it past Apple to have more optimized drivers for their partner despite the same Vega56 GPU.
