Hi everyone,

I have got this setup for awhile, but i'm still unable to gaming with setup above.

My setup:

Max FPS I can get around 30 - 35 fps on dota 2. Is there anything wrong with my setup? I heard that Aorus RX 580 can handle 60fps on 4k, have anyone have better result?

There is definitely something wrong with your setup. I do get around 50 - 58 fps 4K all Ultra on eGPU on dota 2 (Don't forget about Thunderbolt overhead). I have a TB2 laptop with Akitio Node. Are you sure your cpu does not throttle?

Oh wait, are you playing on Mac OS? If you want to see full benefit of eGPU you should install Windows.It works great via XConnect.

yeah, I have PC with GTX 970, so I only use eGPU for mac and sometimes play game using eGPU, but the performance are very bad.

Did you turn off anti-aliasing? Also, which API it uses on MacOS I don't know. In this video, Vulcan API seems to perform really poor. 

 

 

Edit: Here, the results seems different. I'm confused now, maybe the video was shot on the first days of API development;

Mac only have opengl for dota2.

I was able to get 4k 60 fps with my GTX 970 on Hackintosh, though the RX 580 8gb will provide better fps when compare with 970
