There was an unverified leak about the upcoming Mac Pro.

Most interestingly, the MacPro has support for Quadro/RTX cards listed!

This might mean MacOS will finally resume support for Nvidia Quadro or RTX cards even for egpus!

From the article you posted: “alleged evidence for the highly-anticipated Mac that has many questionable elements making it very hard to believe is genuine at all.”, so I wouldn’t hold my breath.

@kelvin_tan sketchy at best, given the clear mistakes and timestamp (Nov 2016), but wouldn't we be happy if that were all true ;p

Apple should accept drivers from nVidia if they want to stay competitive with Windows + Linux. Whatever beef they had with nVidia is long in the past, they should just get over it.

Agree. This is just bad business decision making, in my opinion. Any issues with delays on chip delivery or driver issuance could be handled in contract negotiations (ie, late fee penalties, eg).

I don't think the nVidia support will come ever, just because Apple and AMD have some kind of "alliance". If I was one of them I wouldn't support nVidia either.
Moreover, nVidia doesn't seem to interested in Macs. This isn't a suprise either, as 95% of their market is PC users.
So you have three parties and none of them is interested in nVidia running on MacOSX. Win/Win/Win situation for them.
