Got some numbers (and a set-up) that might be of interest to some people here.

I am running a MBP 16" Intel 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9, with 64GB and a 5500M inside it.

Attached I also have 2 x Razer Core X boxes. One has a 5700XT and the other has a 6900XT (both are Gigabyte cards).

I've only run the Chess Scene and the results are:

5500M = 46 seconds
5500M + 5700XT = 15 seconds
5500M + 5700XT + 6900XT = 7 seconds

Depending of what news comes of Octane 2022, I might continue with the next bit of my build.
I have a Mac Pro 5,1 at my feet, that I'm thinking of loading the 5700XT into with a second 5700XT as a node and buy a second 6900XT to replace it in the Razer Core X.

Wonder what speed increases I'd see?

Thanks, any questions I'm happy to answer :)

Hi snahbah.

How did you get the 6900XT in the razer core X? It wouldn't work for me due to lack of Power slots:
