    Thanks for the note on the 16GB Radeon VII cards - mo' VRAM is mo' bettah. If I needed a new build ASAP I'd still go nVidia 2080s to leverage those CUDA cores. That said, Apple and AMD seem motivated...

    OTOH, if ARM is coming soon, why develop a whole new code base for AMD at all. Apple is already committed to supporting Intel CPUs for another 10 years (assuming they don't change policy). Do they...

    Seriously doubt you'd be able to run an Afterburner accelerator card on anything but an actual Mac.

    Call them cheese graters, trash cans, form over function, whatever - at the end of the day it seems like the kind of nickname denigration regularly used by a certain reality TV personality.

    I would love to see Apple put some $ into coding resources to facilitate Metal optimization - if for no other reason than to provide competition for nVidia/CUDA.
