There is an easy plug&play Solution in Bootcamp with eGPU and external Display:

My Setup:

MacBook Pro 15 Mid 2017
Asus XG Station Pro
Asus Vega 64 Strix
Windows 10 (1709 Fall Creator)

Just hotplug into leftside Thunderbolt 3 Ports -> Ready!

no Error 12 /43, no issues, no workaround needed...

The Bootcamp Radeon Driver can handle two GPUs: 560 internal / Veag64 external
 
i hope 10.13.4 (final) is easy like this...

@robert, you are one of the first to use a XG Station Pro eGPU enclosure. Would you like to share this good news as a Build Guide?

WHAAAAT!?

Can anyone share/suggest reasons why this has worked when there are usually a shit ton of error 12 issues with AMD cards?

This is fantastic bloody news, now if only I could find a Vega card...

It was plugin and play for me too. MacBook 15 2017 with 560. Sonnet eGPU with RX 580.

fresh Bootcamp and MacOs (10.13.3) is just plugin and play.

I was reluctant to try bootcamp because of the complicated guides and info on here.

But I didn't have to do anything but plug it in!

I think the name of the game is: „large memory“ mbp15 2017 with AMD TB3 eGPU and  WIN10 1709.

Fascinating

@robert and @tim_hyde - did you both have recent installs of Bootcamp? I wonder if there have been updates to drivers or what not

Yeah this is really interesting... I thought the error 12 issues were down to Apple gubbins which have not been updated... its a wintery weekend in London and I dont fancy leaving the house so maybe I will pull my machines apart again and give my 580 another go in Bootcamp...

Large Memory allocation in the 2017 MacBook Pro helps with error 12 in Bootcamp. It is part of the Mac's firmware. If we could get the Boot ROM Version of each plug&play report, that would help others.
