Certain applications Crashing Using Egpu

Hey guys, a bit of help needed. 

Setup:

Mac Mini 2018 

Razer Core X Enclosure with AMD RX580 8GB over Display port and TB3

AOC 4K UHD monitor

Big Sur 11.52

 

So my egpu is running fine on certain graphics heavy applications being:

Maya

Blender

Premiere Pro (Only when editing)

Screenflow

Cinema4D

However, I do experience crashes on the following:

Opening After Effects - almost immediate crash

Upon Exporting in Premiere Pro

Opening any video in Quicktime Player (VLC works fine)

When previewing videos using spacebar.

 

Has anyone had a similar experience and found a fix? 

I've tried a fresh install and resetting VRAM etc. Still having the same problems. 

Any advice would be much appreciated Smile

@streetlevelaudio, a crash report is usually generated when an application crashes. It may have clues as to what caused the crash. A developer of those apps might be able to use the crash report to find out what went wrong.

 

Mac mini (2018), Mac Pro (Early 2008), GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5, Radeon Pro W5700, Sonnet Echo Express III-D, Trebleet Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe M.2 case

@joevt, Thanks for the tip, but I find that the GPU just hangs, but the program is still active. 

So, if I unplug the GPU very quickly and connect back to the hdmi port on the mac mini within 30 seconds, everything's all good again and no crash report gets generated. So weird!
