Low macOS gaming performance?? EVGA 1080Ti SC2 + 2016 Late TB MacBook Pro
Today I received my ASUS XG station 2 and finally set up my EGPU thing. I was able to update the firmware and get it running on macOS. However, the performance isn't quite what I expected, when I try to run Unigine Vally, I get around 50 FPS with internal display. When I play Dota2 on 1080P everything max, I only get around 3o FPS. Is this considered as normal performance?
This is internal screen benchmark result
This is external screen benchmark result
It seems like internal screen took a 50% performance hit compare to an external screen. But I found other people saying only 15% performance result observed. Am I doing any configuration wrong? Using headless HDMI adapter
This is exactly my findings when I tried Pascal drivers on a GTX 1080 Ti eGPU. The much bigger performance loss is due to the workaround we use to force the eGPU accelerate the MBP's internal display.
Thanks for the reply. So I assume we have to wait for NVidia to release an updated driver to improve the performance? Or another internal display method? Thanks
Ideally, Apple should officially support external GPU so that Nvidia and AMD can have engineers work to improve integration and performance.
Anyway you external screen performance are super!!!! envy 😛
