Hi,

I just want to report my working setup as described in the title. There should be a table in this forum with all the working eGPU setup, the admin could update it with mine too. Maybe can be helpfull for someone with the same setup.

Cheers

PS. I'll add some pic of the benchmarks tomorrow.

 

HARDWARE specs:

Mac pro retina 15" mid 2015

        2.8GHz i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz)

       16GB ram

        512GB SDD

        AMD Radeon R9 M370X

Akitio TB2

EVGA 1060 SC 6GB

EVGA 500W 80+

 

SOFTWARE specs:

Windows 10 installed with Bootcamp (I am playing here)

NVIDIA drivers: 378.49

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

Welcome to eGPU world 🙂 

You must run the Unigine Heaven Benchmark with this settings - 

You can also turn on your Internal Retina Display with my mod and You can also replace the BIG EVGA 500W with Dell DA-2, more info -  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/2012-15-mbpr-gt650m-gtx106010gbps-tb1-akitio-thunder2-win10-enjoy/ - i have the same video card 🙂 You will run all games on Very High/Ultra - Full HD on External and 1680x1050 on your Retina Display 🙂

I also think - its time to add another sections in egpu.io forums - one with Q&A and one with Done projects (Implementation Guides) like ours 🙂

Hi Marcellom

did you test your setup with Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects maybe?

I'm a videomaker and would like to know if there's any chance to get better performances with an eGPU system via Thunderbolt2.

 

Thanks

Hey there - I'm attempting to run the same build. Wondering how you resolved error 12 for your setup? 

Cheers
