laptop model: 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

OS: macOS catalina 10.15 beta 2

egpu setup: Akitio Node + AMD RX 580

 

Situation:

After I installed the graphic card to egpu box and connected it to my laptop, nothing popped out, no notification, no menu bar, no nothing, I can neither see it the "About this Mac" nor GPU History in activity monitor.

But the fan on GPU is running, and I can see it in the Graphics/Display section in system report:

Type: External GPU

  Bus: PCIe

  PCIe Lane Width: x4

  Vendor: AMD (0x1002)

  Device ID: 0x6fdf

  Revision ID: 0x00ef

and also when I unplugged the egpu, an alert showed up saying "GPU not disconnected properly". I also tried purge-wrangler.sh but no luck.

So I guess I'm half way there. Does anymore have any clue or suggestion?

The node has a 15W Power Delivery. Can it charge your Macbook Pro? I am asking as a 2nd hand one sells for $150 near by.

No, the battery shows charging, but the battery percentage keeps dropping, I guess the box is charging the computer, but not as fast as it runs out.
