I tried the non beta version and the card was not accelerated as well. So this might be a problem with the MSI RX 460? Does anybody know?

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

After running macOS some time and checking the system information again, metal support does appear. But the GUI is not accelerated.

Hello! This sскшзе solved the problem of starting the system with my 750m. And for this many thanks to the developers! The work in the professional applications (premiere and resolve) looks convincing. When I start the Unigine Heaven, after a few seconds the system crash. What is the reason for this?

10.2.4 is live!!! Reports? Are Radeon working? Are they any better?

Nvidia maybe will update drivers tomorrow.

If you're using RX 470 or RX 480 for your eGPU, don't update to 10.12.4 just yet. AMD9500Controller.kext was removed in this build and replaced by AMD9510Controller.kext.

Any performance changes?

Meaning? Not support at all? Bad peformance? Differences? Cheers.

The script identifies RX 470/480 cards by AMD9500controller.kext. This kext file no longer exists in 10.12.4. Running automate-eGPU.sh 1.0.0 on macOS 10.12.4 may not get an RX 470/480 eGPU working.

@Goalque, would manually adding 067DF1002 to the plist in AMD9510controller.kext be a temporary workaround?
