Good Afternoon so just yesterday night I finally after so much errors that kept popping up I managed to get the Mantiz Venus eGPU working for gaming. When I first attempted gameplay on my MacOS I first started up Minecraft because "hey why not?" it gives me all the Hardware specs and frames per second. The external GPU did wonders and sent me from 10 fps and overheating to ranging around 90-120 fps with no issues. I finally installed everything such as bootcamp and every driver I had to get but while using Bootcamp and playing Minecraft my average Frame range was around 60-70 fps  which is still playable but as you guys could understand I want to get all this build can give to me and also I don't want to suddenly have a spike drop to something so crazy. I also want to experience the full feel of other huge game titles we all know of. My specs are.....

Just a guess, but if you are using the MacBook's internal display, and the version of Minecraft you are running in bootcamp is using OpenGL to render graphics, I'm guessing it's not using your egpu.  There isn't an easy way to force egpu acceleration to the internal display in OpenGL on windows unless the game explicitly supports choosing which gpu to use in it's own settings.  If you had an external monitor plugged into he egpu it would work on that display fine.

@ningauble77, Sorry I should’ve been more detailed. Let me just restart so last night aswell I setup my monitor and loaded everything through hdmi. Nothing being displayed on the macbook because it carried all over to the monitor with rx580 supported as it says in the device manager. Loading up minecraft aswell I edited some settings through radeon software but even then I still get around 50-60 fps which I have seen much more
