eGPU hardware: Akito Node, XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS Black Edition 1405 MHz OC+, 8GB 256-bit GDDR5, TB3 -> Tb2 Apple Adapter

Installation steps: Dead simple.
1. Disabled SIP, ran Purge-Wrangler.
2. Installed card into Akito Node
3. Connected adapter to Akito, then to Macbook
4. External GPU Not Found / Rebooted / Found
5. Win!

I have not run any benchmarks yet and I am not running Bootcamp. This was purely to improve my FCPX performance. 

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
