Should be great to have in the Implementations table an option to order by date.

Sorry I didn't know where to put it.

Thanks.

Seriously, best feature ever... easier to follow up new rigs...

What about having the weight of the devices? Just to know how easy could be the transportation... In kg and pounds, I guess.

Replaced inch designation (") with -inch string.  Now a URL search can be done by LCD size. eg:

Hey nando4, how about an implementation guide for Late 2014 iMac 5k using rastafabi's method here?

Not to put a downer on the post, but it doesn't have a great title and isn't really obvious that it can help the iMac crew (and no doubt lots of other configs).

rastafabi's eGPU enabler is linked in the "Installation Software" header menu. If there is an iMac implementation Guide for iMacs in the Implementation Guides area then I will add it to the table. Pls advise if such a guide/posts exists. We only now have a 2011 iMac guide.

Mid-2012 650M retina vs. non-retina distinction should be made (if and when there is a successful non-retina build posted).

Changelog

  • new Interface Performance Reference Table section
  • autofocus set to the search box to allow quick user-defined table filtering (though not for #perf and #key anchors)
  •  showing x to y of z entries now immediately visible positioned above rather than below the table
  • GPU field now prefixed by Nvidia or AMD to allow sorting by brand. Currently at a 127:29 ratio favoring Nvidia
  • Computers listed now include their dGPU
  • Computer, Enclosure and Interface column titles now hyperlinked to more info
  • Changed interface definition from >A to more intuitive >TB3, inc auto-convert >A to >TB3 in the search box
  • allow URL-based string block search as specified by enclosed quotes, eg: https://egpu.io/external-gpu-implementations-table/?table_filter =""inch Asus" Nvidia" returns rows containing "inch Asus" and "Nvidia"
  • Reorganized table entries based on interface_bandwidth-gpu-perf-date
  • Link shortcuts replaced by drop down boxes, positioned alongside search box for further search filtering
  • "Search:" text replaced by search icon
  • removed social share counter that was delaying page load

Perhaps distinguishing same models of a card w/ different VRAM capacities could be helpful (ex. GTX 1060 3G vs 6G and RX480 4G vs. 8G) for those looking for a specific card (given that so many implementation guides are present - the user could prioritize based on the type of card he/she has).

Thank you for your feedback. VRAM amount isn't listed because:

  • many of the supplied implementation guides do not disclose the VRAM
  • differences in VRAM have little to no affect on the applicability of the provided installation guide

That's true, except perhaps in Windows implementation I suppose? Having less VRAM eliminates errors such as Code 12 without having to disable stuff right?

Windows error 12 against an eGPU is affected by the PCIe aperature requirements which are the same regardless of VRAM size for the same card. It tends to be 256MB+32MB for the latest Nvidia and AMD cards. Older GTX4xx-7xx (except 650/750) required 128MB+64/32+16.

Thank you for clarifying this! Never really understood the reasons for Code 12.

Some improvements made to the Implementations Guide Table:

+ now tracking macOS version, eg: macOS10.12.6, macOS10.13.1
+ GPU dropdown lists all GPUs by name

This will help answer "does xxx card work with High Sierra?" type questions.

Could we sort the table by date by default? Would be nice open the page and see the newest additions.

Suggestion:

In the eGPU implementation guides table, add a column specifying whether it's intended for a setup with acceleration for internal display, or acceleration for external display only.

I think there's quite a few of us who only want an externally-accelerated display (which is easier, I believe).

I regularly check the implementation table and the first thing I do is changing the sorting to sort by date. I just can speak for myself but I think sorting by date is better.

A key reason for the addition of an eGPU is for performance. The default sorting by performance makes this a Leaderboard listing and requires pre-filtering by eGPU port bandwidth & eGPU type which cannot be done easily by clicking a column.

On the other hand, filtering by date can be done easily by clicking the date column if that is an important parameter for now until some other mechanism is put in place to allow a default date sort.

FYI, I clicked on your EGPU bandwidth link, then the CUDA-Z link to download the software to measure bandwidth performance. Updated Norton Security software on my laptop stopped CUDA-Z, so apparently it may be a security risk?:

I would love to see more information on VR compatibility and builds, and I suggest this group of users will continue to grow over the coming year.

Would it be possible to include a drop down/filter for VR headsets tested in build guides?

@awsthtk, thank you for the suggestion. Something to consider for future implementation. For now, just use the search (top left) with keywords "builds vr".  Doing so will link through to:
