Please Help! $30 Compensation. Bootcamped Win10 AMD EGPU Load Stays at 0%
Hey there! I'm quite new to EGPU. I'm currently using a Macbook Pro 2019 15inch and I was planning to get myself an EGPU. It took me a long time and lots of research to overcome that error 12 issue. But now, I just encountered another problem; My EGPU load always stays at 0% no matter what!
I have tried many methods including:
- Disable my internal GPU
- Disable some of the PCI ports
- Uninstall all of the drivers using DDU and re-install the AMD driver
If anyone had similar problem and fixed it, please help me! By the way, my EGPU is Radeon RX 5700 xt and CPU is Intel i9.
Also, like what I have mention in the title, I'm willing to give compensation if this problem can be resolved!
@omacot, Please provide the equipment list, setup details, and whether you're using an external monitor. Also no need for monetary offer. The best compensation you can give is to be an active member and help others.
@itsage, Hey! I'm currently using a Macbook Pro 2019 15inch Intel i9 with Radeon RX 560. I have a Radeon 5700 xt connected through a Razer core X. And I'm not using an external monitor. The EGPU load is always 0%, I have tried many different AMD drivers and even contacted AMD support but apparently nothing helped.
@omacot, Your laptop is very similar to the 2018 15" MacBook Pro which @mac_editor has posted a master thread with a lot of details in terms of setting up with an eGPU. For internal display acceleration, you'd need the Radeon Pro 560X dGPU to be functional. Here's his build with a Mantiz Venus + RX 5700 XT eGPU in Boot Camp [build link]. Last but not least is to use Windows Graphics settings to assign each app/game to the RX 5700 XT eGPU.
I had the exact same problem as you but it was with my Nvidia GPU. The problem was that I thought that I had set it up correctly but it was really just wishful thinking. To fix it I had to set it up properly, which was find the problem in my installation and fix that. In my case it was having to disable my iGPU by booting from a custom EFI that one of the contributors here provided. Hope that helps. Good luck.
