Apple's Upcoming BlackMagic eGPU Pro Delayed Until December

When the new Mac mini and MacBook Air debuted in late October, Apple added an online store listing for an upcoming Blackmagic eGPU Pro.

At the time it was first introduced, the listing for the new eGPU said that it would be released in late November, but as pointed out by 9to5Mac, the listing now says that the device won't be coming until December.

Priced at $1,199, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro features a Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics processor with 8GB MBM2 memory, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, and a DisplayPort 1.4 port. It offers 85W of power delivery.

Like the prior non-Pro Blackmagic eGPU, the new version features an all-in-one aluminum enclosure. Apple's Thunderbolt 3-enabled Macs, including the Mac mini, the MacBook Air, and the MacBook Pro, work with the Blackmagic eGPU Pro.

The price is just comical. They couldn’t even put a Vega 64 card in? I get eGPUs are expensive but this is silly. I hope no one buys it to send the message this is not reasonable. Go with another company like Razer or sonnet.

Its amazing how so many products Apple introduces are not available at the original release time frame (some cases are more than a year). Its almost like Apple management has no clue what they are doing. With Jobs people were fired for missing deadlines, but now it seems its just, "Oh, well, we'll try harder next time."

Does not give one a lot of confidence in the new Apple.

People get eGPU to have Nvidia cards, not Radeon. Best render engines runs on Nvidia.

I just bought a Sonnet egpu enclosure and a Radeon 64. $800 bucks total. Better performance for 2/3rds the price.

Nvidia GeForce doesn’t support 10 bit color output and they don’t support all of Metal’s latest feature set. That would result in bugs and headache for developers.
