So hopefully the studios will realize the importance of supporting eGPU and in future implement proper eGPU support for MacOS! I think this would be very important also for the success of AppleArcade!!!

As far as I have seen, MacOS 10.15.1 has been released with full RDNA support so the RX 5700XT should work. Are there any other experiences with Apple Arcade and using eGPU?

Hello Markus,

Thank you for getting in touch with us! I am Manini and I will be answering you today.

I completely understand how upsetting it could be when you do not have expected graphics while playing. As MAC compatibility is a new feature we have received a few similar reports from other players.

We are about to release a new update to the game that contains various improvements and optimizations and hopefully, it will solve the problem with the MAC graphics lag as well. The update will be out very soon as we are just waiting for the Apple to review it so stay tuned!

Thanks again for your patience and understanding! While I am marking your case as resolved for now, please do not hesitate to contact us back again if there is anything else we could help you with!

Have a wonderful day ahead and enjoy the game!

Best regards,
Manini

I just had the perfect Apple Arcade use case for my newly bought Radeon RX 5700 XT: Manifold Garden.

I played it first on my Apple TV 4K but was shocked about how low resolution it and how aliased all of the lines were. For a game that repeats geometry into infinity antialiasing and high resolution should be a big win I thought.

So I played it in 4K Resolution with MSAA on my Mac and was stunned how beautiful it looked. FPS weren't all the time at 60 though, but for this game it was just right.

Ok they do not say it will work with the eGPU, they will just improve the experience right?
