What are the compatible GPUs are this set up? The second hand market is going crazy right now. And I’m looking for suggestions for GPU that I can use for a Da Vinci Resolve set up running on Catalina

thanks!

Radeon VII and RX 5700 XT were the answers a year ago.

Now, the cost of an M1 Mac Mini might be less.

@mini-i5, yeah I’m definitely excited by the M1. Will wait for the MX1 to upgrade my laptop. I will probably get a low end gpu in the interim waiting for supply chains to normalize. I feel like an egpu will have some use for raw decoding for another couple of years.

Vega 56 would be ideal. Miners know all about them tho.
