2016 13" non-touch + Akitio Node + reference RX 480 8GB is plug-and-play. Should I cancel the Dev Kit order?

I'd say so. RX 480 is slower but essentially the same.

What keyboard are you using in the picture, by the way?

It looks great.

Bummer that the RX 580 is very difficult to get... 🙁

This would be a perfect companion for when my Venus arrives.

So I take it, for Nvidia Pascal cards to work with High Sierra beta, the hack/patches are still needed?

There are 47 successful Mac eGPU implementations using Windows using a mix of various enclosures and video cards. This dev kit is simply using a TI83-based Sonnet Breakaway Box + RX580 video card.

Installed High Sierra on my 13" Late 2013 MacBook Pro, and wow! Native eGPU Support, No hacks or tricks necessary. No lag from UI elements even though the internal screen is on. Only thing that isn't currently working is clamshell mode and Final cut (Though I need to update my Final Cut)

 

 

Will be interesting to see if the RX580's in the kit have some sort of Mac Firmware.
