@alex_ai
Could you please elaborate more about your setup? Which GPU, which enclosure?

@oliverb it's in their signature.

thank you @mac_editor.
The question about if the eject works in 10.14.5 remains.

There are new benchmarks on Barefeats.

How is video performance in Premiere and Resolve?

@alex_ai I am noticing the same problem on 10.14.6 B1. While the eGPU icon is present, it is not selectable and does not show a dropdown of connected GPUs. Likely isn't GPU specific, since I am running a Vega 64. Future betas will likely fix the problem (perhaps we will also see minor refinements to RVII drivers).

Edit: A quick look via the command line mechanism shows that essentially there is a (rather silly) bug with the SafeEjectGPU system. Hopefully should be addressed in the next beta.

I said this already once: It would be perfect if the disconnect icon wouldn't disappear when nVidia is enabled. It would be perfect, if all eGPUs attached were listed, but only the AMD eGPUs were selectable, the nVidia entries are grey. It's a great pity when the icon disappears completely. Can this be done, @mac_editor?

Hi, I have a Macbook pro 2018 with Radeon Pro Vega 20 & intel 630 GPUs.

I bought the Razer Chroma X case, and a Radeon VII just like some of you have done. WHile I get a working desktop, I dont see the VII listed in the About This Mac (unlike some of you who have posted earlier:  The VII lists beneath the intel in About This Mac.  It DOES list the eGPU under System Report -> Graphics (it lists all three:  Intel, Radeon Pro Vega, and Radeon VII).  Further, when I launch BOINC to run SETI at Home, it doesnt show the Radeon VII at all.  How did you get the VII to show in About This Mac?  Thank you greatly, Mark

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Hi im thinking about getting a radeon vii, is it working properly in 10.14.5 now? (also does the fan still keep running in sleep?)

Unfortunately, my Mac Mini 2018 is still causing fans to run at about 70% when it enters sleep mode. Others on Mac Book's etc seem to have had better luck.

Another reminder - The fan issue when Thunderbolt connection with the host computer is suspended is due to the Radeon VII board design. I've heard confirmation from AMD and Apple. AMD needs to issue a fix.
