Really really bummed that FCPX is crashing with the RX480.

Does an AMD card in an EGPU enclosure need to be powered on before the macbook is turned on in OSX?

   

Yes!

very interesting, we still have hope

No idea what the first post on this page means but apparently this guy has FCPX/iMovie working fine now with a 480 card.

It’s not just the FCPX version. Another variable is hardware. 10.3 worked fine with some older MBP (don’t know which model). Ikir’s TB3 MBP apparently is not compatible.

Mark's TB3 2016 13" MBP claims to have no crashing issues with the rx480 and FCPX. Sonnet enclosure & PSU are the different factors here?

 

edit; nvm apparently extensive testing hasn't been done yet

Maybe the non-touch bar MBP is more compatible with > 10.3.

Any reason you're not going for the RX 470? It's about $50 more but nearly twice the performance. The Thunder3 will work with a Late 2016 13" MBP with Touch Bar. You'll need TB3-enabler and automate-egpu v1.0.0 for macOS. Windows may require DSDT override.
