To be fair for me personally it doesn't have to be an RX 5700 XT specifically although they do seem to be the sweet spot for value these days (and you really do need to stick with an AMD card on MacOS to avoid possible issues these days).
I'd just like something in my next Mac that is a big step up from an RX 580 to justify a purchase. I know it isn't Apple's fault that rate of progress has slowed a lot since around 2012 but it is hard to spend loads of money just for better single core performance alone especially when it rarely seems to be the bottleneck for most games at decent resolution.
