Hey all, 

Completely confused on what do to here, maybe someone can help. I am having a problem where my computer and task manager recognize my eGPU and I have disabled my dGPU but when launching games and programs they refuse to use the eGPU resources.  I can't update drivers as the AMD program won't recognize the eGPU. my computer will run games better without the eGPU currently than with it. I have tried booting through the recommended procedures on https://egpu.io/forums/bootcamp/mid-2015-15-inch-macbook-pro-egpu-master-thread/ but no dice. when I tried this procedure it doesn't show an efi device to boot into and booting into windows now no longer works as it tries to load mac and switch to windows but fails. Any advice on what I should do or try? Here are my specs.

 

MacOS Catalina V. 10.15.7

Macbook Pro 15inch-2018

Processor 2.2 GHz 6-core Intel Core I7

Memory 16GB 2400 MHz DDR4

Mac Graphics Radeon Pro 555x 4GB and Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

 

eGPU is a Radeon RX 580 Saphire edition

connected via ADT-Link to TopLeft TB3 Port

No that isn't it. eGPU is fully powered. I have performed several stress tests on OCCT in both Mac and Windows.
