Easy eGPU setup in Windows 2004 20H2 with Apple Bootcamp and AMD Navi cards (2018 Mac Mini) easy easy
Hey, today my Bootcamp installation ran a Windows cumulative update for Win 2004 20H2. (I have Windows set to automatically install these, keeping-up-to-date)
My eGPU set up continues to work beautifully.
I'm using AMD's 20.4.2 driver from a year ago - which performs very well - but stellar eGPU performance is also now available from AMD's latest 21.4.1 driver.
Good times. 🏂🏻 🏂🏻 🏂🏻
Heh, if 'improved' means not working.
I really don't know who is to blame, as there are so many variables. I had it working with older windows (1809, and I think it updated to 1903 and was still working, and then some auto-update finally killed it), but I can't recall if I was running Mojave at that point yet (or especially when firmware updates were done).
I picked up an extra HDMI cable so I can use an HDMI switch box I have to wire both HDMI ports, as that will make testing a bit easier. I'm about to go at it again. Wish me luck!
@mini-i5, Hehe, I hope I can get it going in any version of Windows at this point.
Yeah, the price of GPUs has gone nuts. It seemed so expensive when I bought it, but now it's not such a bad deal. The other day I was joking in a crypto-mining forum that maybe a Mac Pro with quad Vega Pros isn't such a bad deal anymore either (given a single higher-end - not even as high end as the Mac Pro ones - is going for $thousands). The Mac Pro would actually keep all those GPUs powered properly, cool, stable, etc. which seems the tricky aspect for the home-builders.
