US$349 Mantiz Venus TB3 enclosure/dock
I want to really buy the sapphire Vega 56 nitro, and just faced a interesting dilemma. Its generally thought all those cards have a 3 - 8pins power supply connection, and off course I was afraid that would be a no go for the Mantiz. But looking at the regular nitro on newegg I realized that the regular nitro version (not the special edition with the blue decoration) does use a regular connection with two 8- pins. as its show in image below. So since the spec on the Sapphire website confirm that, I am assuming its a newegg website mistake. Does anyone had the same issue? Should just go ahead and get this one for the Mantiz?
Thanks as always!
That card should work. All the RX Vega 56 eGPU implementations so far have been the reference card with two 8-pin connectors.
For what it's worth I've been using the Mantiz Venus with a Powercolor Vega 64 reference. I did go into Wattman and set P6 as the maximum state, so not sure how much difference that has made, but the card has been rock solid under both macOS and Win10.
I have two questions:
2. Does anyone have a hint about getting this in germany? It's about 400 Dollars in the US without any shipping, but the are quite some fees to pay when importing electronics. Is there something like a amazon in europe where I am able to buy the egpu?
2. contact us : [email protected] to get more information about the duty & Shipping.

So I bought my Mantiz to work with a 1080TI/Late 2016 MBP 15". My MacBook has never registered any PCI device as having existed inside the device. Am I doing something wrong or am I dealing with a product defect?
@kbaegis The attached Thunderbolt screen cap indicates the Mantiz Venus can communicate to your MacBook Pro just fine. Nvidia eGPU is not natively supported in macOS High Sierra. You need to use a workaround to enable it. Follow the setup guide here.
