@Ritero my Windows 10 setup has been working flawlessly but today, I set up a new usb dock and now every time I try to boot into Windows through the EFI Windows hangs.  I can boot into normal bootcamp Windows but not the EFI Windows.  I installed the usb dock driver through normal Windows after EFI Windows kept hanging and no luck.  Is there a way to reset the EFI boot partition? Or should I just wipe the EFI partition and start again?  

 

To be clear bootcamp Windows is working perfectly fine, but it doesn't recognize the eGPU.

 

Thanks,

@kaizers808 I am not sure sorry. Does it work loading with the dock unplugged? I went with the Core X Chroma which has a USB dock built-in, and that works perfectly for me.

I have heard others talk of booting into Windows (normal bootcamp) first, then booting into EFI afterwards to avoid hanging. I haven't had to do that.

Hi, Ritero! Thank you so much for posting this. I've got the 2016 MacBook Pro 15" as well, and been thinking about getting an eGPU set-up for it. Seems like Razer Core X Chroma with RX 5700 XT is the way to go, and I'm almost 100% decided to get it.

Tell me then, has your overall experience with gaming and 3D rendering programs been great so far? I was thinking about getting this setup mostly because of gaming as well as animation work (I'm training to be a 3D character animator with Maya) and I feel like an eGPU would be very practical to have especially since it seems more and more likely that studios will be hiring more remote workers for animation and stuff due to the global crisis with COVID-19 and all, and getting an eGPU will certainly help speed up animation work and make me more efficient.

Thanks again.
