Hi,

It worked great for me. I only have a roblem with wine. I play Eve Online and it uses wine. I couldnt get it work on eGPU. Any idea how to make it work ? It doesnt recognize wine as an application, but when i play it shows it as wine on "Force quit" window or at activity monitor. 

Thanks,

Hey
I have a question. How to make an app work in specific directory inside Application folder?

I've done it. .plist file editing with:
<key>GPUEjectPolicy</key>
<string>relaunch</string>
<key>GPUSelectionPolicy</key>
<string>preferRemovable</string>

Did the trick. 
Thanks to ozzy. Cheers

set-eGPUout with support for UI automation on Mojave+. See documentation for pre-requisites (eGPU must be plugged in + Terminal needs permissions to control system). Another feature is the ability to set preference for apps at user-provided directories (such as external drives).

Explanation from Apple regarding why there isn't a global switch for preferring external GPUs:

"A global setting was considered and rejected because most apps (think basic AppKit apps) get no benefit from being on the eGPU but gain some fragility since they may have to restart when the eGPU is ejected and might crash if it is hot-unplugged. Also, some apps/workloads actually perform worse on an eGPU because of the decreased memory bandwidth between the CPU & GPU."

Fair enough, makes a bunch of sense.

I don't think that "prefer eGPU" works with wine, but it works for sure with an external Monitor plugged to the eGPU. If this display is set to main display, any application launched on this display, including wine, uses the eGPU.

Thanks to you, I use the eGPU well.
But I have small problem, I cannot boot bootcamp.
I think it's because suppressing internal graphics(750m).
Is there a way to use boot camp?

@lionryan this script has nothing to do with that and does not disable GPUs. If you are using an NVIDIA Maxwell or later eGPU in a TB3 enclosure, your system cannot be used in bootcamp on this Mac and won’t boot (POST) while such an eGPU is plugged into the system.

Hello mac_editor

I installed the set-eGPU on my Macbook Pro Retina 13-inch  2012 OS Mojave, in PCI menu says Management installed: no.

There is also no display on the external display.

Is set-eGPU compatible with Macbook Pro Retina 2012 with Thunderbol 1 ?

Thank you
