Radeon VII, AMD’s latest addition to the graphics card line, is now supported in the latest macOS Mojave beta version. The graphics card was released in February this year, and retails for $699. It is built using a new 7-nanometer process, and has 16 GB of memory with up to 1 TB/s of memory bandwidth. Radeon 7 claims to have a 25% performance boost, compared to its predecessors.
With no doubt, using eGPU with MacBooks and the 16GB of HBM2 video memory will be a treat to gamers and creative users.
Since Apple seemingly have no plans to make NVIDIA cards support in macOS, it is widely believed that AMD’s graphic cards will be used in a future modular Mac Pro. But first, it has to fully work with macOS.
Unsurprisingly, since the support is in the form of a beta macOS update, some flaws were reported, particularly when used with a Mac Pro tower. Nevertheless, this is still promising news for Apple users worldwide, that search to get that extra performance when using their Mac devices.
