Pleased to present results to everyone who is curious about the new MacBook Pro 16".

I have the fully specced version with 32GB memory and 2TB SSD. I have paired it with the Radeon 5700XT Anniversary Edition.

Below I present the CPU and GPU results of the machine and the eGPU. 

For the CPU, SSD and Radeon Pro 5500M have tested : Geekbench 4, Geekbench 5, Unigene Valley, Luxmark 3.1, Blackmagic Disk Speed Test, Blackmagic RAW Speed Test.

For the Radeon 5700 XT Anniversary Edition I only present the Unigene Valley results as I have posted results of this GPU before. There was a 200 point improvement using the the eGPU with the new Mac. Previously I used it with a 6 core MacBook Pro 2018 model.

Any chance you were able to install BootCamp and confirm eGPU works? I will get my 16inch Mac Pro in a few days and looking to pair it with a 5700XT and Razer Core Chroma also. Thanks

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I have a PC with 9900K and RTX 2080 Ti so I don't bother with Bootcamp. 

The 5700 XT is my favourite safest choice for macOS eGPU. There is just a small bug at the moment that sometimes doesn't wake the monitor properly from sleep in clamshell mode.

I thought this GPU doesn't work yet with MacOS? How are people getting it working? Apple Beta Program?

Interesting. And yet it still doesn't work with Windows / Bootcamp?

That I'm not sure about - pretty sure it works with the stock drivers in Windows, but maybe the drivers aren't in Boot Camp yet? Hopefully, somebody who has one will chime in with more info.

You are my personal hero. 

I thought before that you were into a Radeon VII, but then it is a RX 5700 TX. Great scores, as suspected. I didn't know there was a 16-inch MBP. So we never learn enough. Thank you!

Do you have tested some game on it? Like League of Legend, Fortnite ecc.?
