Last week I tested RX580 on my 2012 13'' & 15'' non-retina MacBook Pro. And here is an update for the 2014-Mid 15" MacBook Pro GT750M.

The processes are totally the same between two setups.

And there are not much performance difference between TB1 and TB2 according to the results shown below:

 

TB1 (2012 15'' mbp i7-2.7)

TB2 (2014 15'' rmbp i7-2.8 )

TB1 (2012 15'' mbp i7-2.7) 

TB2 (2014 15'' rmbp i7-2.8 )

My setup is MBP Mid 2014, 15″with internal DGPU 750m, Aktio Tb3 -> TB2 (adapter), AMD RX580

I was able to install and test on Geekbench and LuxMark, it works on both.

However, I cannot select the eGPU on softwares such as Premiere, Lightroom, Final Cut, Davinci Resolve, etc…

Is there a way to force these apps to use eGPU instead of dGPU?

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts
