Radeon VII and Razer Core X Causes Hard Reboot
Plug it in, and the response ranges from "No eGPU detected" in the little chip-looking icon in the top right, to my Macbook's fans going full tilt for two seconds, then shutting off abruptly.
EDIT: AMD says you must wait for MacOS 10.14.4, as confirmed by other threads.
Will update here once 10.14.4 is released.
Awesome! Keep us posted please!
No. Hoping March.
Oddly, I’ve been unable to download the 10.14.4 beta. There’s apparently some problems doing so reported by quite a few people. Apple has been silent. But I will give it a shot as soon as I can.
Why not 2,9GHz?
I presume you're talking about me? .. Waste of money. Improper cooling for a processor of that calibre. I got Vega 20 and Radeon VII, I'm good.
Tried Mojave Mac OS X 10.14.4 beta 3 today. Radeon VII not working.
After installing the beta Mac OS X, I restarted then plugged in the Helios FX 650 box containing the Radeon VII. The Mac suddenly shutdown. (Note: this behavior of suddenly shutting down is not isolated to the Radeon VII. The same behavior happened plugging in my eGPU containing a Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB card.)
I restarted again with the Helios and Radeon VII turned on and plugged in. No crash this time. However, the eGPU icon shows "no removable GPU". The iStat Menu does show both the dGPU Radeon Pro Vega 64 in the iMac Pro and shows a second generic "Radeon Vega" as well. The System Report for Mac OS does not show the eGPU card at all. Geekbench does show there are two GPUs installed, but only lets me run benchmarks on the internal dGPU Radeon Pro Vega 64 not the eGPU Radeon VII.
So, as of right now, it doesn't appear the AMD Radeon VII drivers via eGPU are functional in Mac OS X 10.14.4 beta 3.
I have a neighbour, a journalist, he might know something. Only problem: He's a drunk.
Do you think it's worth a try?
