I don't think any set of drivers released from nvidia will solve this issue.

As far as I can understand by the posts made from goalque, there is some artificial limitation put in place by apple itself that makes these wonder boxes not working with nvidia hardware (at least in high sierra).

it's a shame because i bought one of those aorus gaming boxes and the last thing this will perform will be gaming by the looks of it.

For reference the new NVIDIA driver are those: 378.10.10.10.15.117

https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.10.10.10.15.117.pkg

Looking around this seems to be added with new High Sierra for AMD ( GpuWrangler.command ) I tried to tweak a little current enabler using this, but no luck 🙁

No hacks to get nvidia egpu working in High Sierra Yet, huh?  After dropping $400 on a new gtx 1070 I immediately upgraded to High Sierra due to the mentioned egpu support, but failed to see the fine print where only AMD cards are supported.  I'm really hoping I don't have to downgrade to Sierra, that would be a PITA!!!  Hopefully someone comes up with a workaround.

Unfortunately it's only the flashed vanilla cards from MacVidCards...
