Im currently using it with my Razor core V2, GTX 1070 with a MacBook 13inch 2016 and its actually working better than 10.13.5 for me.

only thing I is I can't use the mirror mode as it reverts to using the MacBook iGPU.

I've got a brand new 2017 iMac with a fresh install of 10.13.6
OWC Helios FX TB3 enclosure with 1080ti

  • Disabled SIP in Recovery mode
  • Ran purge-wrangler script
  • Selected option 2 (enable Nvidia)
  • Rebooted

If I boot with the eGPU on, I get a black screen just after the Apple loading screen. It never gets to the login screen.
If I boot with the eGPU off, I can get to the login screen and then turn on the eGPU, but as soon as I launch a program that utilises the GPU (Octane, Premiere, etc), the computer hard crashes and reboots (ie. the Mac BSOD).

Running CUDA 396.148 and Nvidia Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.105

Also tried fr34k's script but it refuses to run on 10.13.6.

Can anyone help?

Just upgraded to 10.13.6. Used EFI boot solution. Everything works as before.

So far I've had pretty decent fortune using 10.13.6 with goalque's Hybrid AMD solution (v1.0.4 current). Works better than with 10.13.4 or 10.13.5 in my experience, so on some level 10.13.6 has provided some improvement. Not sure why / what Apple changed, but something did.

Mac OS 10.13.6 everything seems to be going very very well. I have tested with Final Cut Pro and the processor does not seem to be utilizing the eGPU as much as thank it should. It uses the internally GPU and then send us some of the processing to the external eGPU. I used Alln1 to install the patch. We need a patch to help to utilize the eGPU more.
