First of all, I report success with the following combination. Everything works perfectly after following the recommendations at the top of this thread. Please find screenshots below, and thanks and kudos to the maintainers of the thread and to those that have contributed 🤓

  • Early 2011 17" MBP HD6750M + MacOS 10.13.2 + Akitio Thunder 3 + GTX960 + external HDMI 2462W display.

However, as much as I have to report success on using the eGPU for display, it does not seem to be recognized as an OpenCL device.

`-- Device #1: ATI Radeon HD 6750M

Can anyone think of what I should do to enable the eGPU for OpenCL? I am using the native MacOS OpenCL setup successfully with the two built-in devices, but it does not recognize the eGPU. Many thanks!
