[Solved] Dell 8K Monitor (UP3218K) with eGPU (Vega 64) in MacOS & Win10
I JUST made a thread about this a few hours ago. Now I'm finding this. Was anyone here able to successfully get it to work on macOS?
@gelert42 did you end up replacing that old 30" Cinema Display with it?
Hey @ray I decided to go with the 2019 updated LG 5K Thunderbolt 3 in the end combined with the 2019 MBP i9 8-core VEGA 20 and hope that more eGPUs will support USB-4/Thunderbolt 3 output to screen in the future.
I've not mourned the vertical space lost as much as I thought. The LG display is stunningly clear and the colours are amazing.
The LG has been great. The only glitch I've had was when I changed out the 2m LG Thunderbolt 3 cable to one of the two 0.5m Sonnet TB3 cables I had OEM with the eGPU enclosures because 0.5m is perfect for LG5K to MBP but useless for eGPUs under a desk! The shorter cables glitch out after a while (heat?) and the display will briefly go blank. LGs supplied cable does not do this. It's a good warning to others though.
Plugged into the back of the LG5K I have USB-C to Audio Out for my speakers, USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet and a USB-C 4TB Time Machine drive.
The 94W Power Delivery charges my MBP fine and I'm now a 1 cable clean setup. I'll plug in the eGPUs when I need them for 3D rendering.
@gelert42 interesting what you say about cables and glitches! I have had that happen to me and had no idea what it was! (the flickering fix in my sig was a Windows only issue and solution). What exact cable are you using atm because my prick of a cat just ate my Calldigit one (but to be honest its begun to come lose in the MacBooks ports).

@eightarmedpet I'm using the original LG 2m unbranded TB3 cable which works flawlessly. I have also bought a Belkin 2m TB3 and a Choetech 2m TB3 for the eGPUs to replace the titchy Sonnet ones, one of which I pack in my work bag for emergencies.
TB3 cables are definitely not born equally.
