How to set an egpu on imac 5k 2017?
I apologize to everyone for my bad English, but I'm Italian.
I'm about to buy an asus vega 64 strix and a razer core x to use an egpu on my imac 5k 2017
I read on the internet that in mojave everything will be quite simple, but in windows there are extra steps that I just do not understand.
At the moment on my mac I have windows 10 pro 1703 (I did not go any further because I read about problems with the egpus with the new updates 1803 etc).
Once I have everything (I'm waiting for the black friday), what should I do?
The internal screen of the mac will not be able to use it anymore?
When the egpu is off the screen will work?
Is there an order with which I have to turn things on?
If I had the error 12 how do I solve it?
Will I have to download the official drivers from the amd website?
please, help me!
With that said, I can use my Vega in Bootcamp by simply disabling the dGPU in the device manager.
I also noticed that Vega works better when I use the TB3 port next to the Ethernet port, rather than the USB ports.
I tried to disable the dgpu, but I did not solve it.
I also use the tb3 near the ethernet port.
What driver do you use? Official amd or bootcamp drivers?
I use the official AMD driver.
I’ve used both the RX and Pro drivers.
You have to edit the installer configuration to make it work, if you want to use the installer.
Otherwise, you can simply install the driver via device manager.
I deactivated the dgpu and the egpu works ... but very bad! The games (at the same resolution) run better on the dgpu!
For example with the egpu the demo of pes 2019 reaches about 20 fps! With stable 60 fps dgpu (always at the same resolution).
If you update the egpu drivers from the Device Manager the computer crashes and I have to restart. And after this I have to reinstall windows. The setup drivers give me error 173.
The bootcamp drivers instead work, but the games always run with low fps! I do not know what to do!
when I connect the egpu, in the windows settings I choose "show only 2) so as to dissemble the monitor of the mac, but does not solve.
if I wanted to use the setup.exe of the amd drivers, how do I modify it? Do I always run it after using DDU?
To modify the installer config, add the following line to InstallManager.cfg
