System specs

  • Model: 2014 15" MacBook
  • CPU: i7-4770HQ 2.2Ghz
  • iGPU: Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200
  • dGPU: not applicable
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS used for eGPU: Windows 10 (BootCamp)
  • hunderbolt 2

eGPU hardware

Installation steps

There was a lot I have been doing before making it work, but the end it came down to just a few steps that mattered (verified when OS died):

The main difficulty I had was that hot plug did not work me (maybe I was not doing it right, but I tried many time).

DDU was not really required as well, probable because there is no dGPU.

Comments

(!) Only boot into Windows through USB flash if eGPU is plugged. Forgetting doing that resulted in Windows dying completely (I had no recovery point).

Sorry, no benchmarks, however this setups runs much better than my old Alienware m17x R3.

Hope it helps anyone.
