The product page for RTX 2080 Ti is up. I spotted a USB-C port. The full specs of RTX 1070/1080 show USB Type C output as well.

Turing GPUs are designed with hardware support for USB Type-C and VirtualLink. VirtualLink is a new open industry standard being developed to meet the power, display, and bandwidth demands of next generation VR headsets through a single USB-C connector.

Expecting it to not work with macOS right away, at least if we go by how long it took to add Pascal support to their drivers.  Hopefully wrong on that part.  Expecting it to work in Windows right away... I hope at least.

It was a 7 month wait for GTX 9XX cards to have macOS drivers. GTX 10XX was 11 months.

I’m in no rush for macOS, I just want to connect my screen directly. I wonder when amd will bring out new cards with usb c too?

Keep in mind this is USB-C output. It's not Thunderbolt 3 so 5K UltraFine is still a no-go.

Yeah, I'm purely interested in eGPU performance for external monitor gaming.  Nothing fancy like a 5k Thunderbolt display for me at the moment.

I might buy one to test and send back if its no use, because... and I'm prob wrong...

Although it says USB C  it may actually have TB3 bandwidth and therefore work (at 4k)
Why would they not just say TB 3? Because all other monitors are USB C.
Why would it have the same bandwidth? Because its also for VR Link which has the bandwidth for a 4K display at 60hz.

Do I know what I'm talking about? Prob not.
