newbie help troubleshooting eGPU, radeon vega 64, MacOS - intermittent fan stops & FPS drops to 2-3
Hi. I'm a novice at hardware troubleshooting, so any advice will help. I've set up a razer core x enclosure, Vega 64 card, linked to my macbook pro (big sur) via thunderbolt 3. Monitor is ultrawide display 3440 x 1440.
Everything appears to work properly. However, when I'm gaming, the FPS will slow down dramatically (from 80+ to 3 FPS), and simultaneously the fan on the eGPU will wind down and stop. This lag will last 10-15 seconds, then everything seems to wake up and work properly again. This repeats every 10 minutes or so.
Any thoughts where I might start troubleshooting would be very appreciated!
