macOS now officially supports external Radeon RX 560 video cards

Apple updated the product support page, adding macOS compatibility information to the Sonnet Radeon RX 560 eGFX Breakaway Puck external video card.

The Apple document on using eGPU with macOS indicated that compatibility with an external RX 560 video card appeared more than a year after the card was first tested in early beta versions of macOS 10.13.4 High Sierra. This update was the first to provide comprehensive support for eGPU.

For unknown reasons, Apple removed the RX 560 from the list of video cards supported by macOS 10.13.4 before the release of the next update in March 2018. Now this integration is back as the recommended solution for Thunderbolt 3 eGPU.

Corporation from Cupertino offers users to extend the graphics capabilities of their Macs using Sonnet Radeon RX 560 eGFX Breakaway Puck for $ 399.

However, Mac users who want to upgrade their computer by installing the eGPU RX 560 will have to face some limitations. Apple notes that playback of HDCP protected content from iTunes and some other streaming services is not supported on displays directly connected to the eGPU RX 560. The listed content can only be viewed on the integrated display of MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac.

After a long beta testing period, Apple introduced eGPU hardware support in macOS 10.13.4, which allowed users to speed up their tasks when working with graphics. This is convenient for professional programs such as image editing, games and virtual reality applications.
