I always had issues with the Mac sleeping while connected to a Mantiz Venus with a PowerColor Vega 56. This happened on my MacBook Pro 15" 2016, and it is still happening on my new MBP 15" 2018.

If I leave my Mac and it goes to sleep, there's a good chance it'll crash and when I return to the com it will do a full reboot and login with a crash error report - the error is always related to "CPU CATERR".

I set the Mac to not sleep, everything is fine. Have tried pmset standby 0 and still crashes.

I'm thinking of trying out new hardware, either a Razer Core X, or an RX 580, to help solve this annoying issue which has caused me to lose work a few times earlier (now I know better than to set it to sleep).

Does anybody else faces the same issue or have any clue as to what I can do to fix it? Or which hardware I should change? It's getting to be real annoying. Might just go back to the Caldigit TS3 Plus dock and lose the egpu benefits.

I have same issues with Sapphire RX 580 on Powercolor Thunderbolt 3 egfx enclosure. This enclosure have same mainboard+daughterboard as Mantiz Venus and so i'm seriously doubt that switch to another card help you to solve this issue.
Maybe Razer Core X  could be as solution.

I have no trouble with an Radeon RX 580 and the Asus XG Station Pro, neither on MacOSX nor on Bootcamp. But sleeping nVidia cards in Bootcamp crashes the system. Windows jibernation doesn't work at all.

It is problem of nvidia drivers , wait till the new drivers will be released .(There is Hotfix beta drivers but not full release)

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
