MacMini Keeps Crashing with eGPU
Just found on google, it's common:
Same here. MacMini 2018/2020 (6-core) crashing randomly with external Radeon RX 5700XT.
CPU Machine Check Architecture Error Dump (CPU: UNKNOWN, CPUID: 0x80000009000906EA)
Never had discord installed, tried clean install (eGPU disconnected), Combo Update, SMC Reset, Apple Diagnostics…
MacBook Pro 13" (2018) works perfectly with the same eGPU…
@rafk06, I was having the same issues, and I saw you removed Discord, and everything worked. I read this and thought this had to be 100% coincidental, and that there's no way this could be the issue. It definitely was. I haven't had 1 kernel panic after sleep or reboot after uninstalling Discord (and deleting all supplemental files of course).
Thanks so much! While I rarely use Discord on my Mac, I might report this to their support team, and see if anyone else has also had this issue.
PS. I made an eGPU.io account to write this reply 😂
After many attempts and tests: In my case it was a defective logic board. Apple replaced it and now everything works.
If I only had thought about a "simple" hardware defect earlier…
I can also confirm, that after uninstalling (deleting) Discord, my Sonnet eGPU 5700 on Mac Mini (2018, macOS Big Sur) does not crash anymore.
