So trying to get together options for a Win / Mac hackintosh build where compatability is strong. One thing that is very tempting are laptops with the 2080 Max-Q Nvidia graphics. However, there doesn't seem to be way too much info in relation to newer laptops. I already have a RTX 570 eGPU, so having to turn off the nvidia GPU with edits is expected and fine... Maybe if the mysterious Mac Pro offers RTX options drivers will finally be released.

I'm currently looking at the models below... If anyone has experience with any of these working, or a another suggestion, that would be great.
  • Gigabyte Aero 15-X9-RT5 or Gigabyte Aero 15-X9-9RT4K5MP
  • MSI GS75 Stealth or MSI GS65 Stealth
  • Razer Blade Pro 17 2019 (Just released...)

presently there are no 2080 Max-Q Nvidia drivers support for macOS

maybe check dedicated AMD card laptops
