you got some good points there, I give you thatA couple of things to note here. The Radeon vii is $699 US, the RTX 2080ti is $1200-&1500, almost double the cost yet not close to double the performance. I have a Luxmark Ball bench of 59,000+ it’s 3rd place in single card scores. Go to Luxmark web site and check. It was done with a reference 3 fan stock card with the latest wattman at 2150MHz and 1200mhz memory. It is beating the crap out of RTX Titans! Frame rates are good for gamers but compute rates are important for developers. The thing is most people don’t game on Apple computers so the frame rate argument doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in the Apple work load environment. Nvidia Cuda cores were great for Apple work loads but AMD cards like the RX 500 series and Vega’s are taking over the crown in this field as far as Apple software Apps. It is a trend and you can fight it all you want but it won’t make it any better. It’s unfortunate that Nvidia can’t get into the Apple ecosphere with their latest products, but also ask yourself. Why hasn’t Nvidia made High Sierra drivers for the RTX series cards? Mojave lockout should not be an excuse for not making them for High Sierra, Sierra etc...
you are also right about some of the things that you mentioned
