MacOS Catalina + egpu + NVIDIA GTX 760 = possible?

Hi, I am a beginner for egpu.

I have Macbook Pro 13'', Zotac AMP Box Mini egpu, and NVIDIA GTX 760 graphic card.

As MacOS of the laptop is Catalina, I know only NVIDIA graphic cards with Kepler chipset are natively supported by the version.

Fortunately, I have GTX 760, so I tried to connect that into the laptop with the egpu.

However, the driver for the graphic card was not found, even the egpu and the card were recognized in the OS.

In the PCI tab in the system report, the graphic card was recognized as "VGA-compatible controller", but the report also said "driver installed: no".

So, is there any person who successfully that work?

... only as internal GPUs, not as eGPUs. You need purge-wrangler or automate-eGPU EFI. However, there is one problem with Kepler GPUs in Catalina at this time: https://github.com/mayankk2308/purge-wrangler/issues/48

Thanks a lot! I installed GTX 760 successfully with your comment!

But also for my case, Catalina just export black screen when the monitor is connected with eGPU. 🙁
