Can you buy a Vega 64? You spent all this money on a high end HEDT system and want to save money on the GPU...
The RX5x0 cards are better suited for the more consumer grade Coffee Lake CPUs, since they have iGPUs.
We've talked about this a lot, but there is something macOS does under the hood that hooks the RX5x0 cards and iGPU together for non iMac Pro SMBIOS....so you'd be better off either:
1) Getting a Vega 64
2) Switching to iMac SMBIOS (Forgot which the latest was).
I can, but the only reason I am saving on the GPU is that I'm using my machine for music production so graphics are minimally important - or so I think.
But all of this is compelling to think about so I will have to consider it.
