I’ll take the usual deafening silence as a ‘no’ then.

I'll just go back to the fact that a press release was issued last summer as if this was some big event, and something more than an alpha/beta software release. I'm dumbfounded.

I have nothing but respect for the people working on the code, but the info and marketing that is put forth about this product blows my mind.

I'll be one of the first to buy Octane X once it's finished and production-ready, but there's no credibility to be had here. It may be available this year, next year, who knows. I do know that expecting it to come out anytime soon is not worth caring about, and that a good reputation is easy to lose and hard to regain.

Hello! I have a MacBook Pro 2016 and im thinking to upgrade my graphic card with a eGPU. I'm getting the razer core x enclosure, what graphic cards[b] will you suggest pairing it with? that allows me to actually see what I'm doing in the view port

THANK YOU!

Just had to cosign this. I've been shadowing this forum and thread for a couple years now... my enthusiasm and anticipation has curdled.

I think it won't work because of the lack of Mac drivers.

Hi,
AMD Big Navi 6800/6900 XT support in Apple Metal driver should be already available in Mac Os 11.3 beta 3, so they should be supported in the upcoming 11.3 stable update.

Thanks beppe, is there a rough estimate of the OB scores on those?

Also, will there be a working bench tool for OS X soon?

Thanks !

Unfortunately it seems impossible to find a Big Navi GPU here in Italy, so I don’t have any direct experience for now.

New OctaneBench supporting both Metal and CUDA is programmed for 2021.1 stable, as far as I know, so we need to wait a little bit more.

If someone with Big Navi GPU and Mac Os 11.3 beta 3 would like to do the following test in Standalone PR7, it would be very useful to have a rough idea of the performance:

Here is what I have found so far:
