@itsage could you help me fix the text alignment with the OpenGL Win bench? Not sure how to do it. Wanted them to side by side.

Interestingly, OpenGL on Windows performed poorly vs. macOS (OpenGL default). Also note that on Windows, the GPU was overclocked, so the difference is greater:

Win OpenGL

Additionally, I was unable to test the OpenGL benchmark on the internal display. I experienced some other interesting symptoms:

  • With all displays active, eGPU performance suffered on the internal display and the benchmark lagged. I had to disable the displays connected to the eGPU.
  • After running my benches, I re-enabled my eGPU-connected monitor and tried a game. The game stuttered. Only a restart fixed the issue.

Finally, looking at just Valley benches, we see approximately 20% eGPU performance loss by rendering on the internal display. For some other loads and games, this might be higher or lower.

Show Web Inspector in Safari (Command-Option-I), use the cross hairs to select the html element (the table cell containing) then experiment with attributes by turning them off or on, and changing their values.

I added "vertical-align: middle" to the style attribute of the table cell containing the text.

Is there anyway I can install the original AMD drivers on bootcamp to work with 5700XT? Since it's a new card and I think it really needs newer versions of driver to work better. Bootcamp.com driver is now still the Sep version.

Can you clean up everything and try my steps above exactly as described (no HD Audio Driver, etc.) and report back?

@siyuanchu

It is possible at the cost of disabled internal GPU (if that's ok with you).

Do you have other devices connected to the same TB controller? Disconnect all other devices in case you do. If you've tried these steps too, and looking at the steps you linked, you were doing it right before IMO, there is some other problem. Since the GPU works as expected on macOS for you, we can rule out faulty card. I suggest trying different versions of AMD drivers. The earliest driver to support Navi was 19.7.1 IIRC.

Followed this to a T and it somewhat worked. Everything was all good until I hot plugged the eGPU then I got a blue screen and a driver DMA violation error. After the restart the card is seen by the computer but under device manager it has a little ! In the picture. 

MSI afterburner Sees the card as well but it can’t get information on the card. What did I do wrong? I assume I may not have use a good ISO file. I tried to find the .295 iso but I ended up taking the one I had (.418) and deleting some files like people said too.

That won’t work. You need to get 1903 V1 ISO (.30 build) which you can update to .295. If hot plugging gives error, boot with eGPU plugged in.

Where would I find this? Google doesn’t seem to help much. Total noob here trying to figure all this out.

 

edit: figured it out, if I kept uninstalling the KB #### then it would download the older one, finally got it to .295 so let’s see if this works.

It works! But I can’t get the eGPU to be utilized above 1%. Even when running BL3 it would rather use the 560 than the 5700.
