System specs (MacBook Pro 13 Retina early 2015, i5 Broadwell dual core, Intel Iris Graphics 6100, Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.4)

eGPU hardware (AKiTiO Node, PowerColor RX 5600 XT, Apple TB2 cable and Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter)

Hardware pictures (note: require 5+ posts for "attach files" button to appear. Will attach after more posts )

Installation steps (although not required, I conducted a fresh install of Catalina on the MacBook before parts arrived. I ran through the beginners guide ( https://github.com/mayankk2308/purge-wrangler/wiki/Beginne r's-Guide) which had me

1. disable system integrity protection

2. Install purgewrangler and run script

3. plug in node and it works! Super easy.

Hi, question, this config works with the internal screen, or we need to add external screen? 

You use Final Cut Pro ? this works fine? 

Can you add some benchmark results for Heaven and Valley. 

 

Thanks !!!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
