The short answer is No, unfortunately. Apple has had plenty of time to work on ARM64 drivers for Radeon cards, but they decided not to pursue that path. Following the announcement of new MacBook Pros, there’s a macOS update 12.0.1 [21A558]. I installed it on my 2020 M1 Mac mini [unboxing & teardown]. The eGPU icon remains missing [M1 Mac discussion]. Radeon driver support is an obligation for Intel Macs only, mainly the Mac Pro.
Both Intel and AMD have becoming more direct competitors than a complimentary suppliers. We have seen Apple vertically integrating as much as they could on iDevices. Supply chain issues in the past year is another reminder for them to solidify this effort. I hate to say this, but I might have bought my last Mac computer.
