Seems like a few people are getting good results from the latest beta. Is the vega 64 stable in the Mantis now?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I'm using Vega 64 (with upgraded Enermax SFS 650W) on my Venus and it rocks.

I use Vega FE with upgraded Corsair SF600 with a Mantiz Venus, and it's very very stable, only thing doesn't work for me it's the eject eGPU, it crashes my macOS, but i can just unplug it like before and no problem doing that.

Same thing for me, with factory PSU 😉

Can you guys tell me if when using a Vega 56/64, when you put the MacBook  Pro to sleep if the eGPU spins down and goes to sleep too? Last time I tried it with a Razer Core, the eGPU would stay on all the time even when the computer was sleeping.

@zorn_ The eGPU spins down and goes to sleep with the Mac. The negotiation takes a while though. I observed it last night and it's about two minutes from when you close the display/click Sleep until the eGPU finally goes to sleep.

This doesn't work for me, check this video:   see 2:18 it blinks like it wants to sleep but it cannot do it.
