[Bob Zelin] "you can get a nice 2017 iMac with thunderbolt 3 ports, and get the Sonnet eGFX box with the Vega 64 for $1299 right from Sonnet."

Bob, the only problem with that is that none of the editing applications (except Resolve) take much advantage of the eGPU. So if the main concern is rendering/exporting within an NLE like FCPX or Premiere Pro, then the iMac Pros will still yield superior results. Although we are mainly talking about a 10-20% bump for the iMP over a decked out iMac.
