Hey Folks,

so here is my Setup:



System:
2015 15" MacBook Pro (MacBookPro11,5)
Processor: Quad-Core Intel Core i7 - 2,5 GHz
RAM: 16 GB
dGPU: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB

eGPU:
Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB

Enclosure:
Asus XG-Station-PRO

Windows:
Win 10 (2004)

MacOS:
Big Sur 11.1

Click here for setup image 
(didnt know how to insert images, maybe I dont have enough privs)

 


 

 

What worked / what I setup:

  1. Got the eGPU to work by applying DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and HackFlags 0x600 and am quite happy with it.
  2. Using TB2 to TB3 cable & 2m TB2 cable.
  3. Changed "Performance per app" settings for all my games.
  4. Created a new "Ultimate performance" power plan 

 

 

What doesnt work & Questions:

  1. My dGPU is still working like crazy while I am gaming, is that normal? See image
  2. Asus Aura Crate doesn't work on my RX-5500-XT & my newly obtained Asus XG-Station-Pro. LEDs are just plain white, I get the error "No devices found" 🙁
  3. Is it normal, that mz dGPU is in PCIE Slot 16 and mz eGPU in slot 8? Click here for devices screenshot.

 @itsage : hope its ok when I tag u here... U helped me before I was registered here...

If any of you with expertise or knowledge in this area could help it'd be much appreciated.

 

Best,

ItsmeD.
