Set-up:

- MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
- 2,9 GHz Intel Core i7
- 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
- macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
- Razer Core X with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8191 MB

eGPU config using learex/macOS-eGPU and external display plugged into the eGPU

Apps acceleration performing well (tested with Valley Benchmark and GeekBench4) but, when system switch to eGPU usage lag appear on macOS UI (mouse, dock, mission control, workspaces manage, ...) and not accelerated apps (firefox for example). Also, internal display goes black.

Following instructions to solve other similar topic I decided to switch off  "Displays have separate spaces", which had no improvement.

Thanks in advance!

I've "solved" it with a very piggy method.
Using DisableMonitor to disable the built-in display.
I would like to have a better solution.
Thanks also!
