I've setup egpu with rx580 on mac mini 2018 bootcamp windows 10 1903.

It was literally not an easy work.

Simple games are ok such as LOL, Starcraft.

But, when I play ARK, Monster Hunter or heavier games, few minutes later mac mini shut down automatically.

Is there any solution fot this?

Some of us have found Adrenalin 20.4.2 drivers to perform better than newer versions. 

If your card is secondhand and has a physical BIOS switch, it might be set for crypto mining, not gaming. 

Your card, or the 8-pin power connector might not be seated properly. 

Or, your TB3 cable might be damaged or not provide full bandwidth.

@mini-i5, Thank you.

That was because  of the rx580 card problem. 

I've figured out by changing the card to 1650 super.

It works well!
