[HELP] MacBook Pro crashes when eGPU plugged in, stuck in restart loop until I disconnect the eGPU
The system shows the gpu sign on the task bar on the top, with a "no gpu connected" sign when I hover my mouse over it, and then crashes after a short delay. I cannot reboot my computer without unplugging the eGPU as I would be stuck in a restart loop where it loads the bar 2/3rds and restarts again.
Side note: on a Mac OS without 5700xt support, I would just have a display in the eGPU settings but the system would not recognize the "display" as a 5700xt , leading me to believe that the eGPU is able to connect to the MacBook.
Mine wouldn’t even display the eGPU, I didn’t try restarting it with the eGPU plugged in but when I tested it, it wouldn’t even show me the eGPU settings in Catalina.
Symptoms are exactly that of faulty GPU assuming appropriate assembly. Test eGPU with another Mac, or GPU in a PC, or just RMA the card.
Would the problem lie with the GPU or the eGPU enclosure? I plan to to take the gpu to microcenter and test it on their rig when i have the chance (I don't have a pc)
Imma just go to microcenter and replace it i guess. Thank god they have great return policies.
hi ,i have the loop restart issue too. in osx catalina, the system contiune to restart . but in windows 10 ver 1903 ,the gpu works fine .
could you tell me the gpu type you used. I think maybe there is some compatibility problem . In my case, my hardware : mantiz enclosure with Xfx rx5700 . the system (both 10.15.2 and 10.15.3) crashed. before I upgraded my gpu. I use sapphire rx480. and both osx 10.14.6 and win ver1903 system the gpu worked fine. Have you solved the issue ? thanks.
Thanks in advance.
