Hi all,

I've been using the mantiz venus with rx580 and working great and fine. I'm thinking of moving to the radeon VII.
Been reading that it works plug & play with the latest beta.

Any advice?
I'm thinking of grabbing it soon before out of stock.

I'm using a Radeon VII inside Mantiz Venus and the pairing works nicely. Drivers in macOS are premature so there are a few issues like GPU fans run full speed when the connected host computer is asleep and/or shutdown.

Don't worry about inventory. If the RX Vegas are still plentiful at good prices, the Radeon VII won't be out of stock anytime soon.

Can't speak for the Mantis but the Radeon VII works well in the Sonnet box in 10.14.5 beta. Not able to get it to work in 10.14.4 even with well-worn kext hacks, so you'll want to wait for the official 10.14.5 release unless you don't mind running betas.

Does it work fine with the standard Mantiz Venus power supply?
Vega 64 does not because of peak power usage. How about Radeon VII peak power usage? 🙂

that's good news. radeon vii is a no brainer for anyone wanting a official support for egpu on mac and probably the officially supported faster gpu for now.
