Like many of us, I wish there's native support for Nvidia eGPU. I don't see it happening anytime soon unfortunately.

I am considering switching and getting an AMD card after the events of the past few days.   Is there a card that works that is not overly expensive?

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

I bought myself a RX580 8GB (not in stock right now but will hopefully be shipped soon) to temporarely replace my 1080 Ti while NVidia support is improved.

It's not that expensive (~320€ in EU) and will possibly work out of the box.

Mac mini 2018 - 3,2 GHz Intel Core i7 - 32 GB RAM running 10.15.3 (19D76) - Mantiz Venus eGPU with AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8Gb, Dell U2718Q (4K) connected to the eGPU via DP.

This is the list of AMD graphics cards that macOS 10.13.4 has drivers for. It does not necessarily mean they have eGPU support. What I'm curious about is whether we can make the R9 Fury GPUs work as eGPU.

Does anyone know if Nvidia usually updates the web driver for beta versions, such as the new 10.13.4?

Or do they only do so for final releases?

Any way to trick the system into loading the previous driver?
