I'm curious, has anyone got the new Nvidia driver working with eGPUs yet?

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

I just did, akitio node it's detected but the gpu (1080ti) it's not. I've already log out and restart it many times

According to this we might need to wait for a fixed release from Nvidia.

GTX1060 + AKiTiO Thunder3 + Win10
GTX1070 + Sonnet Breakaway Box + Win10
GTX1070 + Razer Core V1 + Win10
Vega 56 + Razer Core V1 + macOS + Win10

Crap. Re-enabled SIP and ran the Nvidia intsaller. Boots to a black screen.

Edit--

disconnected and disabled SIP again to re-run automate-eGPU. and rebooted. After re-enabling Nvidia graphics drivers the 1060 is still not detected under System Profiler, and CUDA panel says no GPU detected. 🙁

Come on guys, we warned there's no Nvidia eGPU in High Sierra and made sure to publish the news article prior to macOS High Sierra was available in the App Store. Nvidia web driver is only one of many requirements to enable external graphics support for Nvidia GPU in 10.13.

You're totally correct, but there was no Nvidia eGPU support in Sierra either.

 

More trial and error going forward. I guess that's what we're all here for.

Hello. Just want to notice: https://cl.ly/2o0W0X3X051G

But it start with black screen and everytime need plug out eGPU, login to OSX, then plugin eGPU and reboot. And then it work until next reboot. If you going to sleep then it not start from sleep and need switch out eGPU, hold power button to poweroff MB, then run it as described abowe. And its pain Smile

The screen capture shows your GTX 1060 eGPU is working in 10.12.6 Sierra. We are discussing 10.13 High Sierra.
