I mostly work with nVidia cards on Bootcamp but would like an AMD card to use for FCPX and a couple other things on the MacOS side. However I'm completely lost with AMD's lineup. 

Out of the cards apple supports with eGPU's on MacOS listed here  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208544 what is the latest and greatest?

Ordereded from highest performance & price to lowest, with "Pro" cards being the professional/pricey equivalent:

  1. AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, Vega Frontier Edition Air, Radeon Pro WX 9100
  2. AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
  3. AMD Radeon RX 570, RX 580, and Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics cards

 

1. requires a eGPU enclosure with a beefy 650W PSU like the Sonnet Breakaway 650.

eGPU Setup 1.35    •    eGPU Port Bandwidth Reference Table    •    Several builds
2015 15" Dell Precision 7510 M1000M + GTX 1080 Ti @ 32Gbps-M2 (ADT-Link R43SG) + Win10
