This is the first day I received an EGPU. This configuration should normally be used directly in macOS. After I hooked it up to my computer, the gpu fan started to work with the colored lights. The chip logo also appears above the system status bar. But when I click on the chip logo, it says "no EGPU available" or something like that. A few seconds later the chip symbol disappeared. The gpu fans are still working, but the color lighting effect is gone. There is also no information about EGPU in the system information.

@martin_zhu, Sounds like the enclosure’s 8-pin power connector is not properly attached to the RX580 card.

@martin_zhu, I can confirm to have the same problem after upgrading to osx 11.4 worked fine before upgrade. Fans are spinning and I don´t think there is anything wrong with my setup since it worked before I upgraded. Upgrade was done from 10.14 where i used my egpu with no problems since 2019. I have tried the egpu on three different macs all with the same result all running osx 11.4. Anyone know a solution for this as I am pretty stuck finding any solution.
