.. and bootcamped Windows. Otherwise it's only a half Macbook eGPU implementation
Does it work with Apple’s built-in Nvidia drivers?
Just in case… what happens if you uninstall the TB3 enabler, and reboot into macOS by holding the Option key down? My Devil Box has the same TPS65982 chip and it reports “Unsupported” under the Thunderbolt bus. However, the TB3 enabler/binary hack is not necessary.
ah ah ah guys i will update thread tomorrow. Pictures when i find a way to organize this mess 😛
My first try was with Apple build-in drivers but i got no luck, in profiles it was detect as generic Nvidia card.
Do you mean i can remove TB3-enabler after first installation? Why holding Option?
Okay, so the latest natively supported Kepler card is GTX 780 SC 6 GB (GK110B chip).
Because of the older TI82 PD controller - it does not support hot-plugging on macOS so booting from the cold power state, and holding down the Option key may initialize TB3 handshaking without the binary hack, as with the TI82 equipped Devil Box (DSL 6540). What’s your Thunder3 firmware version? Even though we have the same PD and TB3 controller, the older firmware (17.17) possibly explains why the Devil Box doesn’t need the hack.
Another approach is to skip DetectGPU function:
@Nando Bootcamp refuses to install on my mac! I will try again.
PS: you can add this to implementation page
Final Cut Pro X is working!
Hello, still reading up on eGPU's and have been noticing some require odd steps to boot. Have you found this the case with your 13inch MBP?
2017 13" MacBook Pro Touch Bar
GTX1060 + AKiTiO Thunder3 + Win10
GTX1070 + Sonnet Breakaway Box + Win10
GTX1070 + Razer Core V1 + Win10

Vega 56 + Mantiz Venus + macOS + W10
Need a hub or USB-C peripheral connected to another port. I have a power delivery hub, so when i'm at home i plug eGPU and this device.
