Actually it's not much work. Error 12 AMD eGPU will be displayed in Device Manager, so it's 3 or 4 clicks, reboot and you got a fully working internal display. Really. this is great.

@oliverb I'm aware I can uninstall from there - I already have a base script which I can double-click to uninstall it automatically, which is even quicker, but still don't do it :p

Yes, I do not envy you for the endeavour to write a Windows script.

Only tangentially related to this thread: my project for the last few days. Guess what's going here 😉 

Hint: Core X and DAS ! The DAS one (right) was definitely an afterthought... lol

Bonus: It's cooler down there, too.

Hey guys,

 I’m sorry it’s a bit urgent... today is the last day to return my Razer Core X to amazon...
i have a Radeon VII, Mac mini 2018 and Razer core X
I read the forum and rumors, now there’s 10.14.4 and it doesn’t work. 
With Win10 in Bootcamp it works. 
Can you please help me to get it to work with Kexts or something else, or I will return the case and just use the card in my old(er) Gaming PC...

thanks a lot!

Start the return. If you decide to keep it, just don't mail it back.

Thanks for your quick reply!

can you/someone else here help me to get it to work?
if not, I return the case and order it again when the card is fully supported. 

Do you know where I can download the Radeon VII kext? I read tutorials on how to install them but google didn’t tell me where to find this kext. We’re in a niche guys...

thanks in advance!

You can try and get it from here.
Basically you can do it yourself. You can copy the current kext, and insert the radeon VII ID to the list. 
Just copy the kext, show its content, edit the into.plist, and add "0x66AF1002" first in the IOPCIMatch tag under vega10. Then you copy the new one, confirm, reload it and reboot. I found a small guide.

Thank you very much, I’ll try when I’m home. 

maybe off topic, but I have lots of login issues here, recaptcha failed etc...
I’ll try to reply asap if login works...
