Is it possible to get a egpu setup that will outperform the Vega 56, or arent we there yet?

I don't have the Vega56 internal card but I have a Vega64 internal card and a couple eGPU's.

The Vega64 internal outperforms:
my Vega56 eGPU
my Vega64 watercooled eGPU
my Radeon 7 eGPU.

I don't have any of the current 5600-5700 cards to try but I would doubt they would be far ahead if at all over even the Radeon 7.

This is just based on some benchmarking software tests.
On Geekbench, the Vega48 in my other machines is almost completely even with the Vega56/64 eGPU.

If it's helpful for comparison, reports and benchmark scores using a "loaded" MBP16,1 with RX 5700 XT in eGPU are here:
