[D] Radeon RX Vega M GL for machine learning (on a Intel NUC 8 mini PC)

I’ve been seeing the Intel NUC 8 mini PCs going on sale. Specifically the NUC8i7HNK2 with an i7-8705G 3.10 Ghz, Kaby Lake G processor and a Radeon RX Vega M GL is on sale for $700 (pretax) without the RAM or SSD.

This is a great value! I need a portable machine learning teaching tool. A big bulky gaming GPU laptop is not that great (unwieldy, price and performance wise). These Intel NUCs you can just throw in the luggage and plug it in anywhere to do a demo or try out an idea before I go out and rent a cloud GPU to do the heavy lifting.

But is that RX Vega M GPU any good for machine learning?

I know last year they didn’t support CUDA but is this still an issue with libraries? I tried digging into documentation but it’s unclear.
