May you please explain why ON THE SAME PAGE the build numbers are different?
I saw ...98 on their Build numbers page, I'm on ...99 and here they're listed both.
(I do not want a literal explanation, I just thought it's strange.)

On the releases page, it says E189 -> that's wrong I think. Haven't seen that build for macOS 10.13.4.

Yeah, that's what I meant... they now got even me confused that I twisted the numbers myself

Hi guys, fwiw I didn't notice any appreciable difference in Heaven benchmarks on my iMac Pro system from this beta and whatever the latest beta was about a month ago (which is when I last updated). Thankfully everything still works natively (using Vega FE LC in eGPU).

New Beta hit today- let's hope they have fixed some of the things they broke in 10.13.4!

One day Apple might decide to include useful build notes so people actually understand what's changed since the last build. Any signs of additional eGPU functionality (NVIDIA or other system-level stuff)? Doubt very much any NVIDIA stuff but either way curious to know what's changing on eGPU side.

Bring peace to your computing life: stop trying to understand Apple.

Wao! How is that you get PCI Lane with x16 in your eGPU. Is it because it is THE supported Apple eGPU? Or it's not real?

My setup:
- Macbook Pro 15' Late 2017
- Sonnet eGFX Breakaway 550
- Zotac GeForce GTX 1060

And just PCI Lane with x4 🙁

PCIe Lane Width reading under Graphics/Displays tree is very inconsistent. I would not put much weight on what it shows. Using an eGPU over Thunderbolt means the electrical connection is limited at 4 lanes.

Also, CUDA-Z reports a H2D bandwith of 1580MiB/s which is really low. I am using the TB3 cable that came with the Sonnet eGFX box, nothing else connected, last drivers, and still far from the 2254,20 reported for 32Gbps-TB3 with Nvidia cards. Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot Smile
