I just get the developer kit from Apple, seems like some benchmark works fine, but some games doesn't get accelerated by RX580, like DOTA2, portal, etc, anyone else has this problem?

Hi!
What is your configuration?

Hi, I am using the developer kit, which include RX580, and the system is macOS 10.13 high Sierra, no scripts as I think High Sierra support this kit natively.

Not sure if I need to set up other things.

Thanks

Apple's WWDC keynote was a good wake-up call for developers. It's their duty to make games and apps Metal 2 compatible. Most macOS apps are not designed with eGPU in mind because they never knew about them.

Are you sure these games are not accelerated? Do you use them on external screen? Everything even OpenGL should work on eGPU if they run on screen plugged into eGPU

I am also confusing, may be some settings are not correct?

My current Macbook is 2016 15 inch with Pro 460, and my external monitor is NEC PA322UHD, the game I run like DOTA2 the FPS is totally the same as I connect the monitor directly to Macbook, no improvement at all. I wonder if there are some bugs around 460

The same applies to OpenGL. Some apps will not be accelerated by the eGPU even if you launched it from the eGPU monitor. In this case, the programmer has made a decision to favor MBP's dGPU or iGPU.

Any way to fix this by script? Like force it always use external card?

Have you emailed the developer and asked them for support?
