I tried to get the eGPU working with my Mac Mini 2011 with dGPU 6630m. 

I've done almost everthing I can do, but it seems to be that is the only Mac Mini you cant successfully install an eGPU.

It seems to be that i have to upgrade to a newer version: 🙁

- Akitio Node Thunderbold 3 + GTX 960 4GB Gaming
- 2x HP 27es Monitor

hi there guys! I'm new here and have a 2012 Mac mini with 16gb of Ram and looking to run an rx580 as an eGPU but really want it to work in windows with Bootcamp - how easy is this to get it working?  I'm seeing mixed reports on it, some say its plug and play with some drivers in windows and others report it does not work at all.  Can anyone post their experience or how it works?  Thinking of buying the Sonnet 580 package they have for sale around $600 or so.  Thanks for any help ahead of time!!

I have a Mac Mini 2012 i7.  I'd like to do this. Now that High Sierra supports eGPUs (specified list), are the options for which egpu and enclosure more than what is recommended on this post?

If you have 10.3.4 then you can't anymore as apple removed support for TB1/TB2.

I think you have may options for enclosure and GPU, what are your requirements?

I'm SUPER excited about this! I've been editing multicam clips on an i7-3720QM and debating on trying to scrape together enough cash for a new setup. This seems like it will solve my problems for under 1K! Thanks so much!

@bob-c and @tobyb For 10.13.4, use @mac_editor's script to enable eGPU support.
