After a few weeks with the RX460 I switch back to Nvidia, same configuration but with a EGVA GTX 1050 2GB, the process is the same and now I'm using an Ultra HD monitor with no lag in Mac and Windows, the result was great.

macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Upgraded to macOS10.13

From [APP] NVIDIA eGPU support for High Sierra (NVIDIAEGPUSupport)

Posted by: Doren

Hi!, i can confirm now that the script works very well on my Macbook Pro mid 2012 non-retina GTX650M.

Steps:
1.- Clean install High Sierra
2.- Check if SIP is enabled (boot in recovery mode [press and hold cmd+R], open terminal and type "csrutil status", if not enabled type "csrutil enable" press enter and reboot)
3.- Apply High Sierra supplemental update
4.- Install nVidia WebDriver WebDriver-378.10.10.10.15.121.pkg (SIP MUST be enabled)
5.- Reboot and login.
6.- Restart and boot in Recovery Mode (press and hold cmd + R when hear the chime sound)
7.- Enter in terminal and type "csrutil status", if its enabled type "csrutil disable" press enter and reboot
8.- Install nvidia-egpu-v1-1013.zip yeah is the V1 version (the v2 version not works in my system)
9.- Boot without the eGPU connected and login normal and shutdown the system.
10.- Connect your eGPU and start your system... all should be work well.

So, after that I have my 4K monitor running but I have no Brightness control on the Macbook Display :/

Hi, a question about nando DYI eGPU. Do instructions get sent when buying? Is it flashing something on the MacBook or just running upon windows boot? 

Thanks!

@mintroini , the software runs before Windows boots to configure the eGPU. No flashing is involved. Instructions & support is via email.

Nice build!

Is it possible to connect this macbook pro to a Razer Core V1? Or any closure that has thunderbolt 3? Is there a way to just use an adapter to thunderbolt 1 ?
