step:

1.install Thunderbolt 3 enabler

2.

  1) Download the script on your desktop:

2) chmod +x ~/Desktop/automate-eGPU.sh

 

3) cd ~/Desktop

 

4) sudo ./automate-eGPU.sh

Thunderbolt3

You don't need TB3-enabler. The AKiTiO Node uses TI83 controller which is compatible with macOS. Your Node firmware 21.1 may be the culprit. Update the Node's firmware first then run automate-eGPU script.

I have 15″ MBPtb with RP460 | Razer Core | GTX 1080. I did TB3 enabler and automate-eGPU script. automate-eGPU detected the GTX1080 and installed 378 webdriver. I reboot after running the script but MacOS is not detecting the GPU. What am I doing wrong?

hi, we have the same setup! Do you get the eGPU recognized every time you unplug and plug again? Sometimes I have problems to get it recognized by the system, I need to turn off again, unplug power adapter and reconnect Thunder 3....

i will post a new implementation when I will receive my Mantiz Venus, but I'mm already sporting a 1070 in my Thunder 3

 

any benchmark from you?

My theory is this is caused by 15W power delivery… when i will receive my Mantiz Venus (which can charge 87W) i will have the answer. I've noticed the best way is to turn off the computer entirely and stay in efi screen (alt key) since the GFX card power up. I can boot most times usually. Let me know.
