Can anyone point me to a thread that would be best Nvidia driver install for a MBP early 2015 with BootCamp/Windows 10? I tried to install the driver for a Aorus game box (GE Force GTX1070). Since I know there’s no drivers for OS 10.15 I installed Windows 10 from BC Asst. 

I tried reading some of the threads but before I delete and re-install everything I wanted to see if there was a specific thread I could follow. 

thanks. All.

Click on the "Builds" tab.

Select "MacBook Pro" from the drop-down menu. 

Scroll down through the builds until you find a 2015 model with a Nvidia card.

Click on the "Build Link".

Well I did.. and tried the 2 links that were attached, and neither of them worked.. I literally don't know why this is so difficult.

Yeah, bruh. Make the change to a different eGPU setup (if you haven’t already). 

The 1070 gaming box sounds like a bad time. 🙄

What exactly is going on? You say it’s not working but that’s not exactly insightful. 

I went through the builds section with the specs of my MBP and my egpu and only 2 links came up, both of which I followed twice and neither worked.

I know. I may try to just buy a cheap windows PC to use the egpu on. I literally want to use it to render images 10x quicker than it takes using cpu. Not using it for gaming.
