2012 Mac Mini [3rd,4C,Q] + RX 580 @ 10Gbps-TB1>TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.14.5 [Backstop5]
Mac Mini Late 2012
i7-3615QM, 4 core (8 thread) at 2,3 Ghz
Intel HD Graphics 4000
16GB 1600Mhz DDR3
Dell U2715H 2560x1440, 60Hz
Took all the steps described in the Purge-Wrangler installation guide, encountered no problems whatsoever (so much thanks to the makers!!)
Legacy AMD disabled
TB1/2 AMD eGPUs Enabled
NVIDIA eGPUs Disabled
Ti82 Devices Disabled
Installing the GPU in the Razer Core is childs play.
Hooked the TB2 cable to the Mac, the TB3->TB1/2 adapter to the Razer, and linked the monitor up with a DisplayPort cable.
First time hooked up the Mac directly to the monitor with a HDMI cable, started the Razer and it immediately was picked up by the system. Switched the monitor to the DisplayPort et voila, glorious pictures 🙂
(Only thing I'm not really sure about is the order in which to shut down the system, and how to start it up. For now I use the HDMI connection to start up the Mac, then switch to DP for the Razer.)
None really, this whole process was so easy, and gives this old Mac a second life.
Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
