Sonnet EGPU on High Sierra issues TB 3 -> 2
I'm having issues on my MacBook mid 2014 on 10.13.5 — integrated 750m.
I have a Sonnet breakaway box 550 with a 1080 — this starts up fine with a Thunderbolt 3 connection (tested on a friends new MacBook) but with my connection using Apple's Thunderbolt 3 → 2 it never starts up (no blue light etc.) I've tried another converter and that also doesn't work.
I'm at my wits end with it all — does anyone have any suggestions or tips? 🤞
Your problem is probably coming from the integrated 750m, which is known to complicate things, and not the thunderbolt connection. There are build guides for this setup you can follow, like this one: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/mid-2014-macbook-pro-gt750m-gtx107016gbps-tb2-aorus-gaming-box-macos-10-13-6-mac_editor/
