MacOS 10.14.5 was released today and supposedly begins initial support for AMD Radeon VII graphics cards. My setup consists of the following:

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)

Razer Core X

AMD Radeon VII

Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter

Apple Thunderbolt 2 Cable

I have everything plugged in correctly - I installed purge-wrangler and have enabled all patches required for AMD GPU support. I can see the little icon in the upper right saying "Disconnect AMD Radeon VII" - so I know it's connected properly, but I don't know if my programs are actually using it. I don't see Radeon VII on my "About This Mac " window. I've tried download a GPU benchmark test to see if it would come up and nothing... It only shows my internal AMD Radeon R9 GPU. Is there something else I need to do in order for the Radeon VII to actually function?

Edit: I'm using my internal display only

Blender 2.8 beta doesn't see the Vega 64 or the VII in an eGPU at the moment. Even 2.7 is finicky.
