Radeon RX 6800 / RX 6800 XT / RX 6900 XT for macOS
Depending on the Mac you're using, setting up an Radeon card may take a lot of effort. Given bad drivers in Windows and no drivers in macOS atm, I can't say these Big Navi cards are worth paying a premium.
@itsage, very good to know. Been watching this space to try them out at some point when / if supported by macOS. Thinking seriously this may be a dead end sadly.
I have been concerned eGPU is turning into the new hackintosh.
TBH I didn't seek out to get a 6800. I thought the 6900 was the new new stuff and the 6800 was older and therefore more supported. GPU's aren't exactly my wheelhouse so it was doing my head in researching. That and the lack of availability kind of limited my options.
Even if apple just said "yep, we will support it in a later release" then cool. So be it.
All I want is something that will help my video grades render a bit faster and smoother. Was not expecting this much hassle. Given the shortage of cards I could likely easily offload this one and not really lose $$$
@sledgy84, I'm betting Apple to release driver support for RX 6800 / 6800 XT / 6900 XT in macOS 11.4. That may be right before their WWDC. I don't think their integrated graphics with the Apple Silicon chips are comparable with discrete options from AMD.
