Look at YouTube, there’s some tests already. All that I have seen seems to indicate that the MacBook Pros with the vega cards run much better and cooler. I’m a bit bummed I got mine before they were available
Sorry it's taken me a bit to get back, but thanks so much for those replies. I'm leaning more and more to the Vega set up (16? 20?) when I do this and just be done with it. Also looking at some raided GTech 12GB Thunderbolt 3 Ext. drive and monitor TBD. This should hold me into the twilight of my career
Regarding that comparison video: If you read the comments, he did note that he had background rendering on, so of course there were few differences! He re-did his test and noted that the Vega did it around 2x faster. It was one timeline, but pretty demonstrative of the difference.
I wimped out. I just got an off the shelf MBp 2.6/512GB/Radeon 560. I think I did ok. Quite a difference in speed from my old 2010 MacPro, and takes up a lot less desktop real estate. Apple lists this for $2799US on their site. Last week when I bough there was a promo for $200 off, so $2599. Yesterday I received an email that had another $100 off, called Microcenter where I bought everything last week, and they matched that and credited me an additional $100US. So new MBp for $2499US!!!
If the OWC dock doesn't work I may be using the savings to get a REALLY expensive dock
