If you have a Late 2016 15″ MacBook Pro, please run the following benchmarks so that we can have a performance baseline for the AMD Radeon Pro dGPUs. This would serve as a nice example for Mac Pro tower owners when considering the next Mac purchase.

I ran these tests on an ASUS RX 460 GPU which was installed inside a 2010 Mac Pro tower. Most RX 460s come with only 896 Stream Processors but unlocking to 1024 is possible. I did the unlock on this RX 460 and it works great!

Luxmark 3.1 Luxball scene: 5,920

GeekBench 4: 77,676 – http://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/497857

Unigine Valley Extreme (1600×900 8xAA windowed): 1,094

Unigine Heaven Extreme (1600×900 8xAA windowed): 564

I will be installing this RX 460 into a couple eGPU enclosures and do the same benchmarks. Thank you!

Thank you @Relvce! I will update the benchmarks table in the first post as new scores are submitted. For a more accurate performance # in Luxmark 3.1, you can run the test on one selected GPU instead of both iGPU and dGPU.
