Author, could you please make a full video guide, how you setup Node + Mac and Node + Win. Not only 30 sec.... It will be really helpfully for all. Cause its too much different information in forum. Many thanks from all community.

Hi @natasha, I don't think there is a simple answer to your question because it depends on your exact system. For setup on a Mac, it seems that setup is generally trivial using @goalque's excellent automate_gpu script (see here). For Windows, depending on your host system, graphics card and apparently Windows version it can be a lot more complicated. Here's how I did it for my MBP in Win 10 bootcamp, a lot of effort.

I read a lot of sheets, but it really useless to see 30 sec of video, talking to us -  'yes, its work'. But reading tons of information on forum, I understand, thats there are a lot of thing, that I should to do by myself. Thats I am thinking about - it will be more useful. I know - u understand me. 

I saw your article. And its really wild for me to see, that simple users need to do a lot to make this Node/Thunder etc work. Not only. plug&play. Thats totally wrong.

So this would work with the late 2013 15" mac? No problem if it has GT750M ? 

And since it has 400W supply it can even support 1080Ti ? 

Dimensions-wise it's long enough for any card?

Regarding the use of external monitors for eGPU setups on macOS, I was wondering if I HAVE to plug in my external monitors into the eGPU directly. Is it possible, for example, to connect one of my external monitors to the GPU via HDMI, and the other to the mac's unoccupied TB2 port - and have acceleration on both?

Hi all and first of all thanks for this fantastic and very helpful forum.

I'm near to buy an external case (node or node pro probably) and I have only two questions: in the video (when you use the internal macbook display) there are two tb2 port in use.

Are two tb ports necessary in order to use the internal display or I can do the same with only one old tb1 port (on my 2011 MacBook Pro 17")?

My goal is use the external GPU for video editing (OS X) and gaming (Win and OS X) in particular in the same display.

Thanks again for the help
