Hello! I'm a new in eGPU world.

I use MacBook Pro 15 2016 / i7 2.9 / pro 460 | 100% - Mac OS user

I read forum threads and as I understood Razer Core + GTX 9xx series work perfectly with my config(MBP + Mac OS), after some steps.

But I'm from Prague(Czech Republic) and Razer Core is rarity in Prague and Europe at all.

I have an option to order Akitio Node from b&h and they can ship it to Czech Republic.

And I have big and important question: Akitio Node + GTX 980 Ti will work in Mac OS? After the same or similar steps like with Razer Core.Thanks for response!

Unfortunately the AKiTiO Node is not working in macOS. If you want something with macOS compatibility, I’d highly recommend the AKiTiO Thunder3.

To power the Thunder3, you can use an ATX 300W+ PSU. The Dell DA-2 with 220W is a bit unstable in my testings with the GTX 980 Ti.
