    @SoyCapitanSoyCapitan atm Thunderbolt 3 enclosures don't work with AMD cards in macOS. I've tried every trick I know and the furthest I got was video output to an external display with the RX 470. This issue is with both the 13" and 15" 2016 MBP.

    I'll wait until the enclosures come with newer TB3 chips with certification. Then they should work as easily as the Thunder2.

    Ironically the newer TI83 chip enclosure such as AKiTiO Node is not working with macOS. :(

    Probably not certified chipset. I think Intel is responsible for giving the green light if they think it is suitable for the MBP.

    Definitely something i want to keep my eye one. As of right now, its a far cry from plug and play. Hopefully a next generation of thunderbolt devices will work seamlessly.
