@mac_editor, sure,  added signature. thanks for the wiki, seems like to I need to switch to an AMD with AMD eGPU. but even then its not very certain or is it? any GPU recommendation I could go for with a discrete AMD.

@philw ouch, that hurt man.

 

thanks to both of you, for jumping at this and helping me with out.

@narender_singh, sorry!

but yes, nvidia Mac drivers stopped with 10 series cards at High Sierra. Apart from some of the really older laptop stuff that Apple let accelerate a display on Macs they still feel like supporting with recent OS.

 Depending on what you are using the mac for 5700xt, 6800xt or 6900xt (careful of the flavour there, though) are all good on 11.4.

@philw, thanks mate, I am mostly looking for video editing (yes aspiring young Tech YouTuber) and at times casual gaming.

So this would be an investment for me along side, so probably gonna return the old Nvidia GPU and ask for the one from the list you mentioned above which seems compatible to mac.

Btw, which flavour would you recommend.

From your signature, you have a 2019 Intel MBP. How is this uncertain? Please read Apple's eGPU support document:

Hey @mac_editor, again much thanks for correcting me here and pointing to me to the link, I should have been more active to those pre-requisistes before buying, yet again can't thank enough. I will correct myself.
