So, I changed to a Vega 56 and the benefits in the timeline are still not that noticeable, but the render time (with de-noise/Lut nodes) is about twice as fast as the internal 460 pro. So, I'm happy enough.

As an aside, using the script that Chippy recommended above on After Effects, I am an seeing a massive improvement. So thanks for that!

Glad it worked. Did you have to make any changes to preferences before you saw the eGPU benefit in AE?

Bring peace to your computing life: stop trying to understand Apple.

Were the changes that you saw in FCPX with the set-eGPU.sh ? Also is the performance in the timeline slightly better but not worse right? Last thing, do you see any performance improvements during stabilization or when you have color effects applied? 
I am debating whether I should get the Vega56 for FCPX use with the new MBP15"...
Thanks for the feedback!

Chippy - No, no changes to AE preferences. It just...worked  🙂 

kotlos - Yes, I tried set-eGpu for FCPX and timeline is better along with stabilisation and colour etc.
The new MBP15" would be a great choice with its larger RAM and better CPU. For me, the Vega 56 was a good choice.

Just purchased a XFX RX 5700 XT graphics card with a razer core x EGPU. I have a 2018 15' Mac book Pro. Is it worth upgrading Davinci Resolve to the paid version? The EGPU doesn't seem to make a difference with the free version of Davinic... will it make a significant difference with paid one? Thanks!

I've got timeline acceleration only with headless adapter (i don't use external monitor at this time).
