Need help please: mid 2015 MacBook Pro 15 + PowerColor Gaming Station + Vega VII Mojave/Bootcamp

Hey guys.  I can’t seem to find any answers for this.  Basically I have a mid 2015 MacBook Pro 15 and a Vega VII (on the way).  I want to run the egpu in bootcamp with a TB2 to TB3 adapter.  I keep reading bootcamp with AMD egpus is a no-go.  Is that true, and if not can someone point me to/explain what I need to do to get it up and running.  Thanks guys

@jeditreasley Not true. As for Boot Camp compatibility, you've one of the best Macs ever made. M370X model should be plug and play with AMD eGPUs,

However, your enclosure choice is not the best. If behaviour is the same as with Devil Box, you cannot cold boot with eGPU plugged in, because of the USB/RJ45 connectors at the rear (Apple firmware halts). You have to hot plug.

Interesting!  What would you recommend instead?  Thanks for the reply.

Well, you still should be able to hot plug during the boot or after logged in. From my experience, any enclosure without extra ports should be ok.

You're gonna have a hard time running it in Mojave unless you're at least running 10.14.4 Beta 5, or wait til March 25th(?) for full release for Mac OS X RVII drivers.

They're getting closer to RVII on OS X but not sure if it'll make the release to coincide with Apple News or whatever, or if it'll get scrapped/pushed to 10.14.5 which at this rate will be like... May 2019.

2018 15" MBP, 2.6GHz 32GB 1TB Vega Pro 20, Razer Core X, AMD Radeon VII (Waiting for OS X Drivers), MSI Radeon RX Vega 64 Wave
