2019 16" MacBook Pro (RP5500M) [9th,8C,H] + RX 5700 XT @ 32Gbps-TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.15.6 & Win10 2004
@bereal, it's 2004, but I'm gonna to update. I don't do the port dance, I use just a single port as I described in the first post: EFI(plug)-Boot(unplug)-Welcome screen(plug).
@fredman, Idk, there's still difference, not too big, I agree, but those benchmarks are way too synthetic.
I updated macOS to 11.1, egpu works well, though I don’t see a way for “disconnect safely” on Mac anymore. Windows boots as usual. Also, upgraded drivers to bootcampdrivers Dec 2020 version.
Edit: safe disconnect option appeared after reboot.
At least I updated my system to Win 10 20H2 with all Updates yesterday. From Bootcamdrivers.com I installed the Adrenalin December 2020 Red Gaming edition. The system works well. I can also use my Vive Cosmos with Viewport games as expected. OS X is still Catalina, but upgrade to Big Sur will follow soon.
Hi, I am also on the newer 20H2 version of Windows and can confirm this setup works!
One thing I noticed, however, is the longer Windows boot time when I go through the custom EFI.
When I start my Mac as usual, it straight up goes to Windows without the custom EFI, and reaching desktop is then within 5 seconds. The Windows boot logo is just there for a second or two.
It becomes slower when I hold in alt, select the Windows partition, follow your steps of plugging in eGPU, remove when I see the Windows logo. The duration of the Windows logo seems to take about 30 seconds, before I get to my desktop. Any idea what the cause may be?
I got this to work under the new developer insider build of windows and to display all three adapters, the Intel UHD 630, 5500M, and the 5700XT!
@hakim_masab, I noticed it too, but just a slight regression. Don't think there's a solution for it tbh.
@scaven_x, sure, np. I will share it this week if I don't forget about it.
Hi, i 've updated my system with bootcampdrivers Adrenalin February 2021 edition (21.2.1 red) an OS X Big Sur. Unfortunately I am not able to play HL Alyx and Star Wars: Squadrons at the moment. HL Alyx freezes after 2-3 min gameplay, Star Wars:S quits after the start screen with setting menu. On my first setup with Win 1909 HL Alyx was running without any problems.
Has anyone experience with these two games especially in a VR setup (HTC Vive Cosmos)?
It looks like the GPU is working as expected, when I check the adrenalin software the card is listed with 60-70% activity. When Star Wars quits, activity is back to 0%.
I tried a lot of the bootcampdrivers from Jan 2020 to now and had no effect. For help or ideas I would be quite happy 😉
@simooa, Use Radeon Spring 2020 drivers (20.4.2) for best eGPU performance.
