Can I make Nvidia/CUDA work on macOS Catalina on the 2016 no-touchbar mbp and the GTX 1070 ? What are the prospect for future macOS versions?

No. None.

Here's the automate-eGPU EFI v1.0.5 package:
https://egpu.io/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/automate-eGPU.efi_.zip

Could you please fix the link? This link is not the EFI package. It is the .efi file for Catalina. 

The EFI package link is here (found it in archive.org): https://egpu.io/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/EFI.zi p" target="true"> https://egpu.io/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/EFI.zip

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Been using this on Mojave and iMac 27” Late 2015 with a Sonnet with TB3 to TB2 adapter and Radeon 590 Nitro+.

I need to upgrade to `Catalina, unfortunately. Would it work normally? Do I need to apply any fixes, like the one mentioned in the pinned post?

Hi, currently on macos 10.14.6, the macbook pro I have has a model identifier of MacBookPro12,1 in System Information.It has thunderbolt 2 ports.

I have created a USB, formatted as MS-DOS (FAT), scheme MBR. I have copied the 1.0.5 version of your EFI to the root directory of the USB I formatted, however, it is not recognised when booting into macos whilst holding option.

All I see is the native hard disk, I have reformatted the USB as MS-DOS (FAT) and re-copied the EFI, but this made no difference.

If there is anyone that has a workaround to allow the USB to appear when booting with the option key held, I'd be gratful Smile

I am hoping to do a tutorial video for others on how to get an eGPU enclosure to work with macos, but so far I haven't been able to get the software installed :P.
