[Tom Sefton] "I can’t see another Mac Pro being built with a non swappable gpu, but if it can handle 8K media and the system has thunderbolt 3 so can use an egpu, I can’t see the issue.

Just observing the gpu wars at the moment, if Apple chooses one over another and it works fine with the highest quality footage available, does it really matter if you can upgrade or replace them with another from the same manufacturer in the future?"

Not all programs work best with AMD GPUs though. Some work much better with Nvidia GPUs. If Apple only wants to ship products with AMD GPUs I can see that from a parts management perspective. But blocking Nvidia GPUs from working at all (especially with the flexibility that eGPU opens up) is just like... really Apple?
