This is really great news for the community I think: https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2017/04/06/titan-xp/

"Speaking of users, we’re also making the new TITAN Xp open to the Mac community with new Pascal drivers, coming this month. For the first time, this gives Mac users access to the immense horsepower delivered by our award-winning Pascal-powered GPUs."

I'm not sure if that means that all Pascal Gpus get MacOs drivers but I suppose so.

Awesome news! Apple's recent announcement it's working on a modular design definitely has something to do with this. Mac + eGPU implementation is another huge factor for Nvidia to get into the game.

Oh snap. And there I was yesterday saying that this is likely a long way in the future! Excellent news.

This is really great news. And a it annoying since I recon this day would come but not so soon Smile

It means I might not need to do a mod I had in mind for my Thunder3 and GTX 970 and can buy a pascal card instead. 

So do I sell of the Galax/kfa2 and Inno3d 970 cards and get a 1050 ti without mod and external power? Or do I aim for more gfx power and still mod for cooling and power?

So is there any 1070 small enough to fit in a Thunder3?

Or is it 1060 thats the largest cards without heavy mods?
