That price is nearly the cost of 3 RX 580s...

Hi

Apple's External Graphics Developer's Kit is for developers and is not for sale. Apple announced that it is necessary to wait for 2018 spring for MacOs to be able to properly handle external GPUs and consequently applications for Virtual Reality.

Good news.
Native support for external GPUs is a very big step towards not needing a bootcamp setup or hackintosh builds.
Let's see what the future brings.

Also seeing the New iMac Pro's base price..... ( 5000$ )
I wonder what a New Mac Pro fully loaded will drop for... ( 20K $?)

Hi

Apple announced for 2018/19 a new fully expandable MacPro on which it is working and even the MacMini will not be as small as we are now watching it. Business customer complaints have come to Tim Cook!
