No good portable eGPU for AMD

I have a gaming box 1070, which is great for bootcamp, but not great for MacOS. There doesn't seem to be any good portable eGPUs for AMD out there. Sure, you got a gaming box 580, but most people would want a vega 56. Which give you the following options: 1) Blackmagic egpu pro (expensive) and not that portable, 2) Razer Core X + vega 56 = works, but not that portable. I've seen someone who managed to retrofit a gaming box with a vega nano, but I can't really find anywhere to buy these cards.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@excubitoro, the Powercolor Vega Nano is sold by Newegg. Here's a link:

@steve500 successfully retrofitted this card into a Gaming Box chassis:

Note: the R9 Nano was 158mm, this is 170mm. Not bad but it was better before.
