Blackmagic eGPU + 2019 MacBook Pro 15,6" keeps crashing
my setup keeps crashing occasionally.
I can't figure out the reason. After the latest firmware update, it's crashing slightly less, but still, it's happening. Since I'm using the Mac especially for games like Starcraft 2 and for working (with tools like IntelliJ IDEA, Docker,...) it's pretty annoying. It always keeps crashing when adding some load to the system. For the past 2 years, only games were ever able to reach the load. In the last 2 months, even YouTube is sufficient and the eGPU will crash. I'm pretty sure that there is an issue with the eGPU itself or with the Software related to it since I had the exact same issue with my old MacBook Pro (2017 and 15,6").
The crash itself is rather easy to describe. Screen gets black, and the Mac prints a warning "Graphics card hasn't been disconnected properly" and that's it. I have to wait at least 15mins before the eGPU can be attached again, and works again. There is also a little "click" sound from within the eGPU right when crashing, and there is a "click" sound a second time like 10-15min after.
