Search the   Builds  database for similar builds that include the same model of MacBook Pro and GPU. Are there examples that work in Windows?

Are you using Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter? Other Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapters do not allow connecting Thunderbolt 3 devices to Thunderbolt 2 Macs.

Look into using Kryptonite.

@joevt, thanks for your respond,

So I found similar problems like mine but no solution, I'm using an apple thunderbolt adapter and cable, the Egpu doesn't even respond when i connected it.

@aymene_zeggari, does it work in macOS?

I did a search in the builds list for 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro rx

This person got it to work with Windows 10:

but it's a couple years old.

Here's the most recent one using a different GPU:

@aymene_zeggari, does the OMEN work with any other computer?

Does any Thunderbolt device work with the Mac?

Are you using a proper Thunderbolt 2 cable - not a DisplayPort cable? You said yes but I just want to make sure.

You either need a new cable or a new enclosure.
