Hello, I was just wondering if anyone has successfully used an r9 390x on the new MBP 15 inch. I have an old card laying around, but I don't want to waste money on an enclosure to discover that my r9 390x will not post. Thanks 😛

2018 MBP 15"  touchbar  R555x + Akitio node pro (sapphire r9 390x) 

1. mac os mojave can't use 390x 

2. bootcamp ( external ssd windows to go ) can use 390x successfully.

Are you sure? There are quite a number of Legacy AMD Chips that can be used in Mojave, thanks you @mac_editor's purge-wrangler. I personally tested Fiji and Tahiti positive. R9 390X is Grenada and could work, too.
