AMD eGPU working on windows 2004, no workarounds needed! WTH!?
@brandon_baik, so I am no the only one. I let Windows update to 1909 and it also started to just work. So I guess I am less stressed before the next 2004 update.
@brandon_baik, it is also same to my case, my spec:
MacBook Pro 15 (2019, 560x, i9)
Gigabyte Aorus 5700XT
I have installed new Window 10 and update to Windows 10 Version 2004, Build 19041.450, and then install bootcampdriver 2020 Aug Red....so amazing, no error 12, and 5700XT is detected automatically. It also can accelerate my internal Mon., without attach any external mon.
@mini-i5, Yes, 1909 build 18363.1082 works at the moment. I happened to have the installer for 1909 and went ahead with it. Hotplugged first time, then installed AMD Radeon Sfotware 20.8.3, first few reboots with egpu connected seemed to be problematic with green stuff appearing and reappearing, but mainly because I did not see the boot menu when holding Alt. So I switched windows to be the default to boot and then magically things started to work. I do need to rewire directly to get back to macos or use the bootcamp "boot to macos" but it is fine for the time being when I use it as a game console
Sure, what's your build? Laptop? GPU? Enclosure. Remember, windows is very finicky and often hardware specific.
Specifically, I got a build working on 1903-18362.30 on MBP 16 in, then updated to 2004.

@brandon_baik, I just setup my signature. My build is the 20251.1. Ive been trying to find the 19041.450 iso files so I can actually update windows to the right update to see it will work for me
@brandon_baik, It looks like we have a similar if not the same build
@brandon_baik, If you have more info on how youve figure this out id love to know. Ive spend 14 hrs yesterday and about 8 today trying to solve this so i can just game on bootcamp.
