This is the ultimate guide for nVidia Titan users to see if they can be used it in MacOSX:

  Mojave High Sierra
GTX Titan yes yes
GTX Titan Black yes yes
GTX Titan Z yes yes
GTX Titan X no yes
Titan X Pascal no yes
Titan Xp no yes
Titan V no unknown
Titan RTX no no

 

.
You are free to send me a Titan V in order to find out if it works in MacOSX, too.

The titan V is Volta based GPU, so I wouldn’t expect it to work on either Mojave or High Sierra.

Precisely, my bets are off, too. Still is has to be tested, so if anyone sent me the card, I would test it.

@oliverb On High Sierra, there was an interim driver release by NVIDIA which introduced Volta support, but the release was quickly removed: https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/nvidia-titan-v-gpu-for-deep-learning-ai-osx-10-13-3-10-13-4/#post-43451

Please see my Jan 14, 2019 11:13 am post & others for details.The titan V works in high Sierra with my iMac Pro, & MacBook Pro mid 2014 & 2018 but only with a specific web driver which was pulled shortly after release. I certainly would not buy a titan V now or any Nvidia card given non support for Mojave & Catalina beta 2.

@Tico Do you know of a source to download that driver? I can't find it anywhere (unsurprising).

@oliverb

The titan V "works" but at this point using any NVIDIA cards are problematical, even the earlier ones that were supported, ie 680 for Mojave & Catalina. The lack of support by either/both Apple/NVIDIA for what ever reason is ridiculous, especially when Apple uses the "pro" label on their hardware. Many years ago APPLE dumped their development & support for the scientific community in favor of video/creative arts support.  As a pro user in need CUDA support for  deep learning and have ended up using bootcamp to get the CUDA support required for DL.

Its too bad since the Titan V blows away most of  the AMD cards in many benchmarks.

Yes, I did have the titan V running on my MBP 2014 until I updated to Mojave.  I also have it working on my 2018 MBP & iMac Pro , however I'm still running HS (17G4015).  The key is the NVDAGV100HalWeb.kext which I have only found in the since pulled 387.10.10.15.15.108 web driver.
You cannot leave your eGPU plugged in during boot. I had to wait for the main login screen  & then plug in, sometimes if you plug it in just after you enter your password for the file vault decrypt it will also work. You may need to experiment.
