I am planning to buy a Radeon VII and I will wait for your updates!

I'm so disappointed.
The release version of 14.4.4 did not work to support my Radeon VII  using the helios 650 egpu from OWC on my iMac Pro.   Hot plugging the egpu caused a reboot.  Booting up with the Radeon VII plugged in does not cause a reboot, but the egpu shows up as a generic Radeon Vega.  The egpu with the Radeon VII is completely inactive.

If anyone with a different mac gets it working, I'd love to know.

Unfortunately, it’s not really a Mac or eGPU chassis issue. It’s just the macOS drivers for that card that we’re missing.

I’m in the same boat and now waiting to see what happens with 10.14.5 betas.

You're right.  I have to assume it won't work well until there is a Mac model shipping with the Radeon VII or similar card.  I'm guessing when the redesigned Mac Pro is released that the Radeon VII will be supported.  But, it's certainly frustrating to have to wait for months on end.   Apple's resistance to Nvidia is also more than frustrating.  Nvidia drivers for Mojave are being held up by Apple still.  My testing in my PC of the Radeon VII vs a 1080 Ti, the Radeon VII competes well.  I hope the redesigned Mac Pro actually does support an open architecture like old Mac Pros did.  Regards.

I just watched a youtube video that indicated the iMac Pro has an updated gpu option of Radeon Pro 64X that has many specs similar to the Radeon VII.  If true, it makes me wonder ever more why 10.14.4 doesn't work native.

Link? I don’t think it’s close to similar. The 64X is likely just higher clocked at the same 14nm architecture and slower HBM. Though this is a guesstimate on my part as well.

OMG it works. Just installed the beta 10.14.5 Beta (public release). Currently, running it through the external monitor no issues yet. Will fire up Final Cut Pro and burn the s**t out of this card because I have been waiting too long for this day. Set up: Macbook Pro 13 (2018) + Razer Core X + Radeon 7. No software modification other than installing the 10.14.5 Beta and plugging in the egpu unit as you would have if you had the old supported cards (e.g. vega 64/56) . I can run some benchmarks and post if you guys are interested. Very stable so far.
