Looks like they have fix the throttling issue but I can't use my eGPU anymore as my Nvidia program say my version is not compatible. 

Anyone know of a fix?

Wait for an NVIDIA update. The OS check is so annoying, why don‘t they just delete it

Setup: MacBook Pro 2018 15" 2.6GHz Radeon Pro 560X on macOS 10.14 & Windows 10 (Bootcamp); Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350 with a Zotac GTX1080 AMP! Edition

I got it working I just uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and works fine again. 
I'm glad they have implemented this fix systems seems to be working a lot better will post benchmarks later on.

As you guys might have seen by now it appears the update has fixed the issues ( ). Anyone know if there is a decent cooling solution that will help handle the i9?

Man, apply lliquid metal to this i9 and you see what performance looks like. Ain't kidding, I'm doing it on mine. You do gotta reapply every year, and make sure you're doing it right, but it can reduce heating by around 20%.

I am having a terrible time trying to get the internal display working with mine. MBP 15” 2018 2.6/16/512

I have the intel chip being recognized by using the USB stick at boot. 

The problem is is when I try to boot into windows with the USB stick after either using the Intel driver from their page or the ones that came with Bootcamp installed, the internal screen will start strobing with white dots and eventually go black. 

I have have tried to install and use rEFInd without luck as well. So, I have been sticking with the latest Apple-set file renamed to bootx64.efi on the USB stick formatted to Fat/MBR and the appropriate file structure.

Im using a Core V2 and 1080ti FE.

Have you had any luck with the internal display?

Robertfjclarke: please update on your performance with the i9+1080ti in boot camp gaming. I also have the i9.

I am super happy to have found this thread!  I have an almost identical setup with except my 2018 15 MacBook has 16 gb or ram instead of 32. I am also using Razer Core X with an Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. I am on 10.13.6 and Windows 10 via bootcamp. Like I said, super happy to see this thread. I just have a few questions because I can't seem to get mine working. 

What apple drivers were you referring to when you did the install? Where can I find them?

Should I install the driver to the Graphics card that came with it on the disk?

Are there any other threads anyone here recommends me going to? I have been to quite a few but most I come across are < 10.13.4. I recently got all my gear so I have a month or so to return things incase this all falls apart. 

Thank you.

I have the same issue as Maven with my 2018 MBP 15”. For the love of god can’t get this internal lcd thing going. I apply integrated.bat and when I reboot using rEFInd I just get the white dots and then the black screen. Did anyone figure this out?

This happens only after installing intel drivers. Even with dated intel drivers.

However it seems that iGPU is working fine with "Microsoft basic driver".

But this way there is no optimus so no point to connect an eGPU for internal display acceleration.
