[Solved] [SCRIPT] PurgeWrangler: AMD + NVIDIA eGPUs for all Thunderbolt Macs
that was the plan all along.
It was just a sample code.
Speed: Up to 20 / 10 Gb/s x1 ? wow that's an odd output, so you will need to refine it...
Exactly, never seen that output before. Maybe a beta thing.. Let's see.
@devild and I were privately discussing getting NVIDIA eGPUs to work on 10.13.4 and are onto something. More patching needed (and not sure what), but if you use the kext-swapping trick for AMDGPUWrangler (from 10.13.3/4 B1) with an updated NVIDIAEGPUSupport for 10.13.4, it should work for now
without hot-plug support. @devild got it working in his testing. Nice going!
So the AppleGPUWrangler was the cause for everything as I suspected? I quickly looked that IOFramebuffer part was mostly unchanged (not yet available from https://opensource.apple.com). Haven't had any time to play with Nvidia cards.
Seems to be the case. I don't have an NVIDIA card to play with + I have an annoying Mac even if I did.
I have a feeling that Apple kept Intel happy, and left a backdoor for us. If they deliberately wanted to block older TB technology, there are more effective ways to accomplish that in the EFI level.
I think so too. The fact that drivers activate regardless of the patch is a big giveaway.
Looks like it works on a fresh install of 10.13.4 on a tb1 mbp.
Thanks to everyone to help make this happen!!!
Yes!! It works on a 2011 mbp13 too!!!
Great news posted on eGPU.it as well
That was quick! Thanks for reporting
