1080TI EFI EGPU CARD FOR MAC PRO 6,1 @ US$1,050.00
Dear eGPU Members,
Anyone here with some experience an/or recommendation in regards the 1080TI EFI EGPU CARD FOR MAC PRO 6,1 listed @ US$1,050.00 on the MacVidCards.com website ? http://www.macvidcards.com/store/p110/1080Ti_EFI_eGPU_card_for_Mac_Pro_6%2C1.html
Some questions I have:
- Would there be a huge difference in performance compared to the RX 580 I am currently running ?
- Why is the asking price so steep for this GPU or am I missing something here ?
- Anyone in the community running this very card with a nMP 6,1 ?
Thanking you in advance,
I have both cards, a Sapphire Nitro RX 580 and a EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 and yes, there is a big difference in performance (in Windows). On Windows it is about 2x. (Not on Mac though and important: the GTX1080Ti doesn't work on Mojave at all)
BUT: Think twice about if you want to buy this card from MacVidCards, because you can get it for half the price somewhere else. They may offer the card with a Mac Bootscreen, but do you really need it? Is it really worth $500 only the Bootscreen?
@oliverb I was addressing your comment of “worth 500$ only the bootscreen”. I never recommended the card to anyone in any comment.
