Using Blender with RX 5700 XT under macOS?

Anybody has experience with using Blender 2.8 with an RX 5700 XT as a eGPU?

Have a 2015 iMac (macOS 10.15.2) with purge-wrangler for the TB2 and a Razer Core X Chroma with RX5700XT.

Do you recommend Radeon ProRender?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Yes, you’ll want to install the Pro Render plug-in. It runs fast on the 5700 xt.
