Buy a video card, get a free thunderbolt chassis!I can't help with that card. It looks super expensive, but benchmarks shows it a short notch from the 1080Ti, impressive!
It's two FuryX together though, and macOS doesn't really exploit well multi-GPU configuration.
If you want something guaranteed to work, the Vega Frontier Edition is available for US $999 on newegg, I got mine for 1004 euros all tax and shipping inclusive (to France). Ordered it on the Friday morning, received it on Monday.
For nvidia cards, I read a great trick in the news today about alternative on where to buy 1080Ti or 1070 nvidia cards at a much lower cost than current prices.
Look at the all-inclusive eGPU box that contains a graphic card.
For example, here on Amazon France, the Gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti Gaming Box cost less than the 1080Ti on its own. Factoring that the external PCI box on its own typically cost $400 easy.. That makes good discount on the price of the card, and they are available.
I wish I had read that earlier, I bought a 1080 for $50 more than the aorus gaming box...
