I have got the same problem and it hasn't solved yet with my 2018 MBP 13inch and RX580 on akitio node

2018 Macbook Pro 13" + RX580 (akitio node) + MacOS 10.15.4

Same issue and setup (albeit now running 10.15.7). eGPU worked fine for 5min on external monitor, but turned dark suddenly and I was never able to get the eGPU recognized again. eGPU fans are running and provide charging for the Macbook but no eGPU is detected.

 

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018)

2.9 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i9

Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

 

Reset SMC, did not help.

Macbook Pro 2018 w/ Radeon Pro 560X
Akitio Node and RX5700 XT with Windows 10 1903 and macOS 10.14.6

Reseating the GPU inside the Akitio Node seems to have done the trick. The PCIe slot of the Akitio appears to be a bit flaky. Now working as expected. Disconnect eGPU via the menu, would also reconnect right after.

Hey which Akitio Node model are you using exactly? Im now using an Akitio Node Titan(released 2020) and it runs perfectly on my Big Sur OS:)

You can see my Akitio Node Titan is working fine Smile
