Vega 56 eGPU working randomly on Macbook Air (2018) with Win10

Hi all, this is really strange. I had thought it was all ok when had my Vega 56 working in Win10 (1903) but it seems random, of 4-5 boots, it would detect an eGPU once, other times I need to reboot automate EFI -> connect TB3 -> pray it would work.

Sometimes when it does detect the eGPU, the screen would freeze and I need to reboot and try again, other times there's no sound at all. Occasionally, it just works, but that seems random.

Has anyone had a similar experience? I wonder if this is an issue with the TB3 cable, the Vega 56 card (probably neither as Mac OS X easily detects the card) or something else?

I also wonder if getting Nvidia card would be an easier to work with.

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