I successfully installed the AMD driver and completed the process in your way, but bootcamp still can't detect egpu. My device is mantiz vega64, which is Windows 1903.

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

You don't need any driver for eGPU detection. It is supposed to display an extra Display Adapter in Device Manager, no matter which eGPU or drivers.
Can you make a screenshot please of your Display Adapters in Device Manager?

@OliverB So I followed all your steps and it has worked in the past.  Everytime I plugged it into the upper left Thunderbolt 3 port in my MBP 2018.  One day I somehow decided to switch cables and plug it into the right sided ports, and now I am plagued with the dreaded error 12.  Can you tell me if there is a way to fix this?

Please tell us your exact Windows Version Build (e.g. with Command "winver")

Setup: MacBook Pro 15" 2017 / Razer core X / Red devil Vega 56 / external monitor / Windows 10 1903.

So with my old rx 580 it was pretty much plug-and-play only had to uninstall and reboot and was good to go. Now upgraded to a Vega 56 and did all the steps displaying all the same messages in device manager, but at the last step after uninstall and reboot just keeps getting the error 12 code.. Any suggestion ? tried all the ports already.

It's best you go back to 18362.295 or sooner. Microsoft messed eGPU up since then 🙁

See if this will work: go to Control Panel -> Uninstall Update. Uninstall the KB for 418, then download the KB for 295 and install that.

Can anyone help me out?

I ask here, because you all seem very knowledgeable about this topic that doesn't seem very well explored...

I have the following:

 

- 2018 13" MBP with 8GB LPDDR3, 2.3 GHz i5

- Lg Ultrafine 5k

 

And am wondering the following:

1) Is there anyway to output to the lg Ultrafine 5k at full 5K (5120x2880, 60Hz) resolution using my specific laptop and running windows 10 Bootcamp using any card, eGPU or enclosure possible?

2) If the answer to 1) is no, then is there anyway to run an eGPU of any kind with my laptop for gaming in windows 10 at any other resolution (4k, 1080p) with the ultrafine 5k?

 

I am open to blackmagic eGPU/Pro, razer core X or similar, using Titan Ridge/Alpine Ridge cards etc. whatever it takes to make this work...

 

Many thanks,
z

Seems like you already know all the ways to connect the LG UltraFine 5K to the eGPU and you're asking if someone has already done that for Windows.
