[APP] automate-eGPU by Goalque (AMD only)
Goalque it’s great to see this thread–I have exactly the same problem, but with WX5100, will it be possible for you to add support for that in the installer? My purpose of using eGPU is to drive 8 monitors for financial application so my choice is very limited to these cards with 4 DP connectors–I also tried the nVidia P2000 before the WX5100, I was able to get the card recognized and monitors show up in system profile and display preference but they were all black screen so I returned that card and got the WX5100–thanks so much in advance
OMG!!! That would be awesome as I also have a AMD Radeon Pro WX7100 in a Akitio Node that I would like to use. I am currently on 10.13.2 (17C60c) and now the egpu freezes at startup and gives me a black screen at log out. I know official support for egpus are not until mid 2018 but they really have a long way to go to get this working at its best..:( We will be at TB4 by the time they get this running. The WX7100 has never been recognized as I also have a RX480 I am borrowing from my gaming PC that worked upon until the last beta update mentioned above. Many, many thanks!!!
I have no plans to keep this workaround up to date. Feel free to look at the plist.
I am not a guy who likes patchwork quilts. I just wanted to point out that Apple is likely going to add a larger variety of AMD cards that allow easy eGPU use, natively.
Everything is still in the beta stage and software developers are required to reflect changes in Metal API.
Sorry for perhaps asking a dumb question, but I couldn’t find any definite info in the forums. I have an AMD Radeon 280X (Tahiti family, same driver as AMD 7970 which is stated to be supported by the automate-eGPU script). Is that right? Does it work in High Sierra with the script? Thanks
Hi guys, according to the original post this script doesn’t support Vega FE [air + liquid]. In theory these should be natively supported in the latest HS, but for some reason my Vega FE liquid isn’t detected and I know of at least one other person with the same issue.
Is it possible to modify automate-eGPU to make it work with this card? At present I can’t install the script because it doesn’t detect the card.
