Problems with Aorus GamingBox and MacbookPro 2013
I really wanted to buy an eGPU for some time now, and I saw this post the other day where a guy confirmed that Macbook Pro 2013 works with Aorus Gaming Box, so I decided to buy it. My eGPU arrived and after hours of work I finally was able to see the eGPU in both in my system preferences, also under the Overview > Graphic and in the Display Tab I finally saw the 1070 graphic card below the monitor. I have an external monitor to the eGPU, I also closed the display of the laptop using disableMonitor, but the performance is laggy as hell. I tried to see my fps in the Ungine Valley and I got something like 10fps, while before the eGPU I had like 25fps. Do you have any ideas what could cause this problem? What I have done wrong. The second monitor was connected throw DVI-D.
The strangest part is that when I tried to use the heaven benchmark.. in the right corner it showed me “GPU Chip”, which I understood that is using the internal GPU
Did you change the external monitor to be the primary display in System Preferences » Displays » Arrangement? Don’t use disableMonitor yet until you get the eGPU working properly.
