Yes it is AMD, and yes for Mojave, unsure but most likely yes for High Sierra. You can check for running configurations at http://eGPU.io

Performance vs. Price wise I would recommend the Vega 56 over the 64 (based on googled benchmarks, it’s 25% more expensive and uses more electricity but offers only 10% more performance)

Hi. thanks for that.. one suggestion was made to me that this being a new release would be suitable?
