Thanks to the kind fellows on this site, I now have my Razer Core and GTX 980 Ti working on macOS.

However, needing to shut down completely and boot with the Core plugged in is quite an annoying inconvenience. 

If anyone cracks discovers a way to hot-plug it without the OS freezing, I'd love to hear about it!

what version are you on?  10.12.2?  I've not successfully gotten my core / 970 / 2016 tMPB 15 to work in mac os.  It only connects successfully immediately after running the script, then fails to connect properly from the next boot onwards.  But I'm on 10.12.3 so I'm guessing that things still need to be worked out.

Are you fully shutting down, or just restarting? Mine only works after being completely shut down.

Unrelated but since you have a setup and a mac working already, I don't suppose you could test to see if clamshell mode (lid closed) works after everything's already up and running on Mac OS?
