How harmful for the GPU is it to "unsafely" eject an eGPU?
I have some specific games/applications that seem to crash macOS's RX 5700 XT drivers, and to prevent the computer from totally kernel panicking, whenever the drivers crash (screen freezes totally except mouse still moves), I just unplug my eGPU and plug it right back in.
But since I have to do this maybe like few times per week, can it damage the GPU in the long run?
And if so, is there some script I could make to force-reload the drivers quickly with a key shortcut (perhaps with Automator)?
It won't physically damage the GPU, "unsafe" here means you're risking a crash and data loss.
However crashing that much might be a sign there's something else wrong.
