eGPU is not working
Hey everyone, I just started setting up everything today and I’ve ran in to an issue. I’ve tried using both the eGPU enabler and automate-eGPU.sh with the same results. Before I explain the problem I’ll give everyone an idea of the setup I’m working with.
Computer: MacBook Pro 13 with touch bar late 2016
OS: MacOS 10.12.6
eGPU: Asus rog xg 2
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 1050 ti oc
Pretty much the problem is the GPU is detected by my computer in both Nvidia Driver Management and under System Information but every program I run just uses the Iris. For example I’ve tried playing Rocket League with it and every time hear my internal GPU start to get loud. I’ve tried switching between the Nvidia Web Driver and OS X Default with the same issue occurring.
You need an external monitor to make use of eGPU for gaming in macOS.
Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same issue. Not the same setup at all but the GPU shows up in system pref, but I can't get it to boot using the eGPU or switch between the internal/external cards I've been at it for about 3 weeks. It will however use the eGPU for Win 7 bootcamp... go figure.
Same here, external display is the main display but the iris is always the one used on MacOS. I can't even detect my Aorus Box on Win10. Can't tell if the issue is from software or hardware...
