AMD shortly commented and showed some benchmarks of "Big Navi" in their Zen 3 / Ryzen 5000-series keynote:

Looks promising 😀 

Edit: GPU part is at 21:57

2019 16" MacBook Pro (RP5500M) (9th,8C,H) + RX 580 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.15.7

@gaerraty, I hope there's macOS drivers at launch, and price starts at $6XX. USB-C monitor output with DisplayPort 1.4 should be a blessing for those who need it.

@gaerraty, I think that puts it at around 2080ti performance?

@itsage we usually have to wait for a Mac with the same GPU to come out to get the drivers don't we? Or maybe not? Were OG Navi included pre 2020 iMac release?

@eightarmedpet, higher than 2080 Ti for sure. It could compete with 3080 (results are at least closer to it than 2080 Ti) but I’d say assume it’s somewhere in between. There are also some people claiming that wasn’t the highest end Navi but best to assume the worst. Navi drivers were available in macOS 10.15.1 which was available in Oct. 2019.

@eightarmedpet, I’m just wondering if we will have ARM-compiled AMD drivers. If not, then there’s no (AMD) eGPU on ARM Macs.

@mac_editor, thats a good shout, I assume drivers cant be translated by Rosetta 2? Thats prob a stupid question, but you know I'm clueless with the tech side of things...
