@ricc uninstalling should be sufficient.

This makes no sense to me. CUDA clearly only brings benefits to a portion of Mac users - and no drawbacks to everyone else, so what's the point of not wanting to support it?

Of course the lack of clarity is really bad.

I'm part of that portion, my work is depended on 3D Rendering which uses it's backbone in CUDA. I'm hoping that will change soon, but till then...

Dear all

I have received the Galax/KFA2 eGPU (1060 6 gb) and tried to make it work with the instructions in this guide. I have a MacBook Pro 2016 15" with TB running Mac OS 10.13.6, and an Apple Cinema Display 23".

Connecting the eGPU directly to the MBP it was recognised normally in the Thunderbolt section of the system Report. The Display section did not show anything though, as it is expected.

I then installed the Nvidia web drivers with the script from Benjamin Dobell. They installed OK, with an icon on the menu bar, but the display section in the System Report was still not showing the new card. When disconnecting the Thunderbolt cable the OS did warn me I should disconnect the GPU after shutting it down, so it had somehow recognised it.

I then tried to use the script purge-wrangler: It did work and the 1060 card was fully recognised in the system report, both displays were used normally (MBP and Cinema Display)... However the Mac was very slow, with seconds of wait after each selection with the mouse.

I recovered the system, uninstalled the drivers with the Nvidia uninstaller (in case I had installed them twice) and reapplied purge-wrangler, reinstalling the drivers. The result was the same as before, very slow system. After recovering the system and deleting the drivers I think the GPU was still warning when I hot-unplugged it, now that I think of it.

Any idea of what could I try next time? Was it the TI82 option I selected? 

Regards,

JA
