2016 15" MacBook Pro (RP460) [6th,4C,H] + RX Vega 64 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (ASUS XG Station 2) + macOS 10.13.4 [P-Mac]
(crappy cell phone video screengrab because I haven't taken a proper pic of the setup yet)
Figured I'd post a separate topic for this since it's technically a completely different enclosure.
- macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 Beta
Plug the TB3 cable into the eGPU. Plug it into the laptop. Done.
macOS auto-detects the eGPU with no problems and the external display becomes available. eGPU gets utilized in pro apps just fine. Doesn't matter what state the laptop is in: closed, open, or turned off.
The USB Ports and Gigabit Ethernet on the dock itself are dual-mode; they can share the TB3 cable's bandwidth OR you can use them with an included USB-B -> USB-A cable to plug into your laptop (or dongle, in the MBP's case) so that the TB3 bandwidth is unaffected by USB traffic.
If it weren't so ugly and expensive (and if the PSU fan wasn't loud), it'd be the perfect eGPU chassis.
Haven't tried this specific setup in Windows just yet, but I know my Thunder2-based solution works with the regedit / Test Mode tweak.
Did you manage to get this working under Windows?
Confirmed now, this setup works under windows using the same regedit tweak as my TB2 box.
I'm attempting a build but hit a roadblock.
I have ROG enclosure above, 10.13.4 and a gigabyte Vega 64 going to a LG 31.5 4k monitor. However not having much luck.
'plug and play' is not working, however thunderbolt registers ROG enclosure.
Amy advise welcome
