Bummer that Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 compatibility has been broken. Hope it will be added again eventually!

Was really looking forward to using one eGPU enclosure with both my 2016 MBP (Thunderbolt 3) and 2012 iMac (Thunderbolt) without any tinkering. Hope it works out when 10.13.4 is ready.

@graukatze a workaround can be used to get your system running on macOS 10.13.4 B1. See here.

The 10.13.4 Beta (17E150g) crashes my mid 2014 rMBPr (TB2) (sonnet breakaway 650PS) and Sapphire RXVega 64. If course NVIDIA doesn't typically provide web drivers for beta version, but when I plug in my Venus and a GTX680  it doesn't see the card but it sees the device and it doesn't crash the machine like the VEGA does.

I just installed the 10.13.4 beta a few days ago and have had a number of crashes and system reboots due to problem usually in clamshell mode after it has sat a while and gone to sleep. Has anyone else been experiencing this? Was very stable under the previous build. When you look at the details it looks like something happening trying to reload kext.

@sprober yeah that is exactly what is happening to me, clamshell mode if i leave my computer alone for a long time i discover that it crahed and rebooted. I was thinking that it had to be something related to sleep but i found the same issue after disabling sleep while connected to a power source and disable hard disk sleep. So it’s something else.

For those who are running Final Cut Pro X under 10.13.4 and using the popular Neat Video plugin with Vega Frontier Edition there is an issue that, even if it's recognised by NV, it will prevent NV to use it. I've reported the bug to the support team and today they'll send me a test version to solve the issue.
Just to tell that if you have this issue in this specific configuration, NV team are working to solve it.

Do you have any other Thunderbolt devices? The Feb 6 edit to this post says this build has broken support for Thunderbolt 2 eGPU. My EGPu is Thunderbolt 3 but I have a Thunderbolt 2 audio interface connected using Apple's Thunderbolt 2 adapter. Wondering if that's the problem, going to have to try running with it unplugged for a while and see.
