RdNa3 is supposed to deliver even more impressive performance uplifts than RDNA2 is to the prior generation, and rdna2 is FAST. so I don’t know if or when Apple will ever catch up.Yes sorry you are right, it's supposed to be in the 11.3 betas... I got a little bit too excited.
I'm not sure this is going to be the last support we will see on MacOS, I work in high-end post-production and audio-visuals and certainly the M1 from a processor standpoint is more than enough and super fast since pretty much nowadays is being GPU optimised in our field.
Nonetheless, unless the new iMac Pro or Mac Pro mini can deliver great GPU performance with cores or whatever magic they have, we will need more GPU computing performance and from what I've read eGPU support is supposed to be in there too. So I suppose that for those needing extra juice you could hook more GPUs and thus drivers should be available...
Probably until Apple also gets to the point where their GPU computing units are on pair with the competition and they can phase those out.
It would be so much easier to just allow mac users to use their graphics card of choice: Apple, nvidia, AMD, and of course both Intel integrated as well discrete DG2. Apple offers thunderbolt ports, and per spec, thunderbolt includes PCIe tunneling, so as long as there’s a macOS driver for a pcie device, it should work via thunderbolt.
But Apple persists in locking macOS down.
