6900 XT models come with XTX chipsets (supported in MacOS) and XTXH  chipsets (not supported). This is not a great situation.

Other than referring to the list, It’s hard to quickly confirm a 6900 XT model has the XTX chipset.

Device ID 0x73af = XTXH, 0x73bf = XTX. Apple egpu page mentions (albeit in footer notes) that only 0x73bf is supported.

Thank you ALL for your help.  Wow this is really frustrating and it would be nice for Apple to take a more active roll in playing nice with the rest of the industry.  Now I'm off to Microcenter for a refund and looking for a 6900 with XTX chipsets.
