@user_name, did the Vega II card end up working on the 16” MBP? I’m in the same boat.

@user_name The Radeon VII has a flaw firmware that causes the cooling fans to run full speed when the connected host computer is in sleep/off mode. There's only one eGPU enclosure, NetStor HL23T-Plus [review link] that was built to remedy this issue.

 

Can you please refer me where to buy the "NetStor HL23T-Plus" eGPU enclosure in the USA or North America, because, the "NA211TB3 Thunderbolt™ 3 to 3 PCIe Expansion Enclosure" will not accommodate the Radeon VII? The seller on eBay UK will not ship the "NetStor HL23T-Plus" eGPU enclosure to the USA and I can only find it available at vendors out of the country not available to ship to the USA. Thank you.

@radiant-sound, Unfortunately I don't know a retailer in NA that carries this enclosure.
