Help with iMac Pro eGPU set up

Hi All

I'd love to install an eGPU on my iMac Pro through bootcamp using a GTX 1080 Ti and Razer Core X.

It appears people have varying results running eGPU's through bootcamp and most people seem to use eGPU's with laptops.

Can anyone advise me regarding the following:

  1. what happens to the internal GPU when you boot into windows (does windows know to shut off the internal GPU without causing issues with the internal AMD GPU);
  2. can I normally boot into windows using the internal GPU if I disconnect the eGPU (i.e. run either GPU at my leisure without any display issues); and
  3. do any other potential issues exist if using an eGPU with an internal display?

I understand some people are able to run eGPU's through bootcamp by connecting them during the windows loading screen but I'm not very computer savvy so any help would be much appreciated.


To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
