I was waiting for the 32 GB of RAM to update which is at least as important as the processor. I also opted to get the Blackmagic eGPU which makes it quite usable with Twinmotion. I use the eGPU most of the time just plugged into the MacBook which charges it at the same time and gives the MacBook 8 GB of GPU.
I was wondering if anyone is using AC on the new MacBook Pro with the i9 processor and if there are any observable benefits to it. Or, even Windows users if they have seen any benefit to the i9 processor.

We run ARCHICAD 22 on our iMac Pro (3.2GHz 8 Core Xeon with 64GB RAM and 2TB solid state drive). It works fast when running under macOS and we see no degradation in speed when we run it under Window 10 using Boot Camp. The only noticeable difference is that Windows 10 graphic rendering of text and other graphic items is n nowhere near as clear or as easy on the mark 1 human eyeball as when ARCHICAD 22 runs under macOS.
We also have a MacBook Pro (early 2017) so its processor is a lot slower but ARCHICAD 22 still works fine.

I really think Apple has lost its way with pro users. They need to remove the POS touchbar, increase the thickness to improve the cooling and then drop the price 1k before I buy again.
