[SCRIPT] Better eGPUs on Macs with Discrete NVIDIA GPUs
Mid 2012 15" (Non-Retina) MPB GT650M + RX580 (AKiTio Node via TB3 -> TB2/TB1 Adaptor) macOS 10.13.4/Win10
Hi! Thanks a lot for your work on egpu support on tb2/tb1 mac like mine
My setup is: Macbook Retina 15 late 13 with 750m dGpu / Sonnet breakaway 350 with Aorus rx580 / Mojave 10.14.3
I use this setup as the home workstation, but usually, I need to take my laptop elsewhere, on my job. So each time when I plug/unplug eGpu, I need to run purge-nvda in the terminal to install / uninstall dGpu. Otherwise, if I will not turn on nvidia-drivers back, such things as brightness and sleep mode in a clamshell will not work.
So I'm wondering if there any simple solution to optimize these processes. Like maybe some Automator script on thunderbolt connection which will runs purge-nvda on plug in, and uninstall it back on egpu disconnection?
