If you need that additional horsepower, then I'd say yes, absolutely. I bought my 2018 MBP in July and had I known that the Vega option would arrive just a few months later the very same year, I would have probably waited.

I would 100% buy the Vega 20 if I was purchasing this model. The benefits as well as thermal management make this machine what it needs to be for 2018.

Yeah agreed...

The sour experience with the original 560X 15" i had just made me write off the 15" completely.

Ya I mean it’s kinda sad when you go 460,560, and 560x and have no real improvement in such an expensive machine over 2 years. The Vega 20 is completely new and makes a significant difference that I think it’s almost required once your in that deep on your purchase.

can anyone comment on the SolidWorks performance paired with the Vega 20?
