@Ekohn00 yes and no. I was able to reinstall the latest webdriver with fr34ks script, but the script does not spoof the OS version when the driver checks it after booting. Result is: maybe it could work but due to the checking of the OS version the driver prevents itself from working.

@fr34k do you think spoofing the OS version could be a solution until there is an official driver?

@nanobit, not sure but doesn't the --beta switch do just that?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

No, the --beta flag just patches the installer. Else the installer would detect the software version and the script wouldn't be able to install the driver. As far as I know it does not touch the driver after the install regarding the OS version check

my bad....I didn't read carefully.  Obviously the script can't change any checks the driver is doing.  Sounds like we're waiting on 
Nvidia.

Unfortunately, yes. Or one of pros here finds another solution

Well Mojave does work with ATI card, as said earlier, this is my bench with the RX580 in a Node connected to a MBP 2015 Smile

Valley Mojave RX580

On the Dev side on the platform, I am testing the news improvement in the tool for Metal programming, shader source debugger, impressive work, Xcode has been well matured for this version.
It seems that they took serious work to improve a lot speed and quality on this iteration, and it is the Beta.
I have still some crash with some Metal example from last year, Dynamic Terrain with Argument Buffer :  https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2017/601/

A fun thing with their sample about a GPGPU based Ray-tracer :  https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2018/606/

A lot of stuff to explore and learn this year again, too much for my spare time Smile

cheers

I can also 2nd that.
2016 MacBook Pro 13" i5 (4TB3port) + 10.14 Mojave DP1 + Sonnet Breakaway 350 + Corsair SF600 + Vega64 Liquid Cooled = Mojave picking up the GPU also immediately after connecting the Thunderbolt cable.

I also want to add, I initially had an Akitio Node, installed the Vega64 LC and no macs I tried liked this combo.
The RadiatorFan would spin to sounds close to that of a small vacuum cleaner, the Akitio Node was being seen by the Mac but nothing would get the gpu to show anywhere. I have also seen another thread where any Liquid Cooled Vega card + Akitio Node just do not like each other. The card lights up and fan goes ridiculous loud.
Putting the card into the breakawaybox and this has been the most 'plug and play' combo I have used yet. Fan is completely silent to me with normal abient noises, under benchmark I can slightly hear it spin up. No gaming or heavy tests as of yet.

Doing some more testing over the weekend and into next week when I get back to work and more hardware to play with.

Do you need a certain number of posts before being able to add pictures or am I just missing the upload button?

Thanks guys.

Thanks for this update pretty interesting!
ps: you installed freak’s script or are you saying Mojave support Thunderbolt 2?

Hi iKir,

Ran the purge-wangler script, does not work without it, but on this side the Apple guys have been pretty ... they didn't break anything, sure that they use it also 😀

Cheers

Current configuration: MBP 13" WTB Late 2016 + Akitio Node + XFX RX480 + MacOS 10.14 Mojave Beta.

My issue: when I plug my Akitio Node and my MBP is already started, the external screen is blank but the external GPU is correctly recognized by the system, even if I'm at login page or logged in. It needs a reboot.
