 Thanks for the add!

Mac mini (2018) 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5 36 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

RX580 in a Razer T3 EGPU case

Big Sur, although the problem has been across a few OS before as well.... although not as bad.

 

FCPX works well, renders with the EGPU well, exports masters well.

 

Export via compressor or any form of compressed file from FCPX will hang with the EGPU until you force quit.

 

Once the compressed export is attempted via FCPX or Compressor its always a restart.. machine becomes a dog... does everything else perfectly all the time

 

No crash reports are generated ( I've seen this on a few forums with no answers as to why )

 

Only suggestion I have seen is that the 2 drivers ( The internal and external graphics cards ) will bring the machine down if they both try and do the same thing..?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
