Best Set up to use Blender 2.8 and Egpus

I'm a mac user and I have been trying to figure out how I can work on blender and use EPGU. My understanding is that Mojave doesn't support Nvidia card (i have a good EGPU 1080 Nvidia). I have two Mac book Pro and one iMac 5k.

 My  Mac book pro That uses Sierra Blender 2.8 detects my EPGU GFORCE GT 750m, but my other Mac book Pro who has Mojave and a pro Radeon pro 460 nothing gets detected. That is probably because of Mojave that is not compatible with CUDA any more, so I installed windows with book camp and same thing the pro radeon pro 460 is not detected?

I was thinking to boot camp my Imac and install my Nvidia Card but is this going to work? 

In short I have lots of mac and I want performance with this machine using EVEE blender not any other engines as I do only real-time animation and trying to find what EGPU  and what os to install for all that to work FAST.

tks so much for the help
