What host laptop are you going to pair it with? If it's the one in your signature, I'd say upgrade to a more powerful TB3 laptop before spending $1,200 on the RTX 2080 Ti.

My laptop have Thunderbolt 3 4x pci lanes - HP Spectre x360 13 2018 with 4core i7-8550u, 16GB DDR3L

Previous year I have only HP Spectre 13 2017, before christmas I sell it and buy desktop plus lowcost laptop, but this year few months back i sell my laptop and again bought HP Spectre x360 13 but in version 2018 with 4core cpu.

My signature is more months old, maybe is again good time update it sorry, so I update it.

In short, no one really knows until they are released and tested.  I have ordered one myself to use in a Sonnet 550 and 2018 MacBook Pro.  I am also going in assuming that the typical ~10-20% FPS drop generally associated with an eGPU versus direct PCIe will remain.  Should it work though?  My assumption is yes, performance impact though is unknown.

Hi Shrapnl, I'm also hesitating whether I need an RTX or just an older GTX for my 2018 Macbook Pro. For the first card all I'm concerned is how long it can take before a mac-compatible solution come out. How do you think of that? If it's gonna take a whole year waiting for a customized solution, what's the point of buying it now? Thanks~

I was wondering the same thing. Also I wondered when there would be diminishing returns on the GPU due to oversaturation of the solution's bandwidth. I am considering gtx1080ti vs rtx2080ti in a razer core x for a mbp15 2016. I assume there's no clear answer til the cards come out, but i have been seriously considering cancelling my rtx preorder if it doesn't perform well.

It really depends on resolution. Even with the expected 20% TB3 degradation the 2080 and especially the 2080ti will still be able to do 4k 60fps at ultra settings in most games based on speculation of performance improvements vs the previous 10 series GPUs. If you will be doing 1440p or 1080p then get a marked down 1080ti. If 4k go all in and get the 2080ti. 

Either way way I would definitely wait until benchmarks and egpu compatibility has been confirmed.
