2018 15" MacBook Pro (RP560X) [8th,6C,H] + GTX 1070 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (AORUS Gaming Box) + macOS 10.13.6 & Win10 [mac_editor]
I have tried this, maybe it could help you. After I finished this guide, I have used the DDU to uninstall the Radeon Pro drivers that came with Apple Boot Camp drivers 6.1 (part of Boot Camp Assistant in macOS). After the macbook restarted, every thing is fine, both the internal display and the external display are work. But the internal display use the default microsoft graphic card. In this way you do not need to disconnect and connect thunderbolt 3 on spinning circles.
I will not do a lot of work on the internal display, usually use it to show some texts. And I play games in the external display. So this is perfect for me.
At last thanks @mac_editor to write this guide. It has saved a lot of time for me.
@wtlucky I am aware of the internal display working if dGPU is a basic adapter - however eGPU cannot be used on internal display (to accelerate games, etc.) in this config. so I omitted mentioning it. Thank you for bringing it up on this thread.
have you successfully updated Aorus firmware?
i tried every intel thunderbolt driver, but it failed due to no thunderbolt device detection or the error message which states 'unknown chip.'
Also, there is one big issue when i play the game with the gaming box. IT WON`T CHARGE!
it seems like idle let flow the juice to the MacBook, but when it goes to the full throttle status, it stops charging.
Have you encountered any of these issues?
Anybody can help!
I cant get the Aorus to work, it does connect and I can see it in the Nvidia application in the corner, but when Im trying to run a game it cant be detected.
What Im missing here?
btw Im using internal display.
@mac_editor Its my first time trying to set a egpu and sorry for my bad English. I'm using a 2018 15 MacBook Pro and its in BOOTCAMP that I'm trying to get it to work.
@saeid592 My bad, I didn't realize it was for bootcamp. Well, you can set GPU preferences in Windows 1803 or later - this is needed when using internal display.
I cant seem to match the timing... I've tried any possibility (Using exact same setup, 2018 15 macbook and eGPU AGB GTX1070)
* Booting with eGPU will give black internal screen, only external works
* Plugging eGPU just after selecting windows as bootdrive, same result, only external works
* Plugging eGPU during spinning circles, same result, only external works
* Plugging eGPU after boot before login, eGPU wont get recognized
* Plugging eGPU after boot after login, still nothing...
I've got nothing else plugged in, not even the HDMI cable on the GTX1070. Also tried all 4 thunderbolt ports, nothing helps
Any tips to work this more reliable would help! thanks!
