What I originally thought was a far stretch of a claim—that being that an RTX2080, installed in a MacPro tower, actually booted up to macOS, complete with boot screen—appears to have been confirmed by Rominator, of MacVidCards fame.

Will I be dumping the GTX1070 and PowerColor Red Dragon Vega 56 I just picked up to get Mojave running? News at eleven!

"Now we just need drivers"
Preferably not the lame ones available today (for other NVIDIA cards).

How come Apple are so resistant to getting proper drivers?

Yeah, the RTX cards have a basic UGA driver for whatever reason.

But it's not useful because there's obviously some problem with getting drivers released for Mojave. Nvidia claims it has something to do with Apple, but who knows what's really going on (Nvidia already maintains drivers for Mojave, since it ships with support for Kepler cards).
