I don't know. Did you try script's -clpeak option or CL!ng to verify OpenCL functionality if no eGPU screen output? Do you need video output from the eGPU or are you going to use it for calculation purposes only?

automate-eGPU.kext is not generic regarding the macOS version but I remember @mac_editor made a generic version of my kext and you can add easily new device ids.

Mac Pro 2013 - OSX 10.12.6 

I tried the -clpeak, these are the following results. 

Arveens-Mac-Pro:~ rvn$ sudo ./automate-eGPU.sh -clpeak

Password:

sudo: ./automate-eGPU.sh: command not found

Arveens-Mac-Pro:~ rvn$

I wanted to ask this is the following that shows up in the system information - graphic section.

why does my pice lane width show as x8 instead of x16 in which I've installed the GPU since the sonnet echo express iii has 

  • One x8 mechanical (x8 electrical) PCIe 2.0
  • One x16 mechanical (x8 electrical) PCIe 2.0
  • One x8 mechanical (x4 electrical) PCIe 2.0

AMD Radeon HD 8xxx:

 

  Chipset Model: AMD Radeon HD 8xxx

  Type: GPU

  Bus: PCIe

  PCIe Lane Width: x8

  Vendor: ATI (0x1002)

  Device ID: 0x67a0

  Revision ID: 0x0000

  Automatic Graphics Switching: Supported

Run chmod +x automate-eGPU.sh first and check your current working directory in Terminal. CL!ng would be better.

It shows x8 because of the PCIe switch in Echo III.
