Any tests or thoughts on the max number of eGPUs allowed in Catalina, MacOS 10.15 now that Apple is somewhat serious about GPU power with the new Mac Pro? Debating about converting to metal/coreML...

Radeon Pro Vega II Duo will have a lot of computing power, no doubt about that. It will probably lose in most games against a superclocked GTX 1080 Ti, but this isn't most likely the point. The computing power will be superb.
