I've got a MacBook Pro 2018, Razer Core X, and Radeon WX 9100. I've used it for one project before Christmas, and haven't used it since. But today when I plug it in, the MBP sees the Razer Core X, but it does not detect the GPU. Also, the GPU is not powering my external monitor. Everything was compatible last month. Is it possible my card died already? Or is there anything left to check besides cables?

Thanks for any ideas!

Razer Core X and WX 9100 both have native macOS eGPU support. Does the fan spin up on the WX 9100 when you plug the enclosure in? Check all cable connections and make sure the GPU is seated securely in the PCIe slot is the next step.
