You have 10.13.6!!! NO EGPU ENABLER REQUIRED!!
ONLY: DRIVER + IO PCIE TUNNELED PATCH + maybe CUDA, NOTHING ELSE!

Thanks! I'll try it.

Hi @fr34k and @mac_editor Thanks for all your help!

Ok, It seams that my previous Nvidia was broken, I change it and the new one is responding. It is not working yet but there is a difference, now I know the Graphic card is there working. Ok, this is my status after doing what @fr34k says: DRIVER + IO PCIE TUNNELED PATCH + maybe CUDA

- I can see the Nvidia Card in "About this mac" as my main graphic card. 
- In About this Mac/Displays my Built-in retina is using the AMD and my external monitor is using the Nvidia. but:
- If I hot plug the eGPU my external monitor is just black (As it was before) so I tried all the 4 steps from fr34k and the only one that make the External Monitor works is the Step Set 2. boot without eGPU, hot plug eGPU only (no external monitor), wait 15 sec, log out, hot plug monitor, wait 15 sec, log in. This gives me the option of Log In in my external Monitor and it works perfect, but now I have a Black Screen in my Bult-in monitor. This is the only way that makes the external monitor working but the internal dies. 

My set up:
- iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015
- High Sierra 10.13.4 (17E199) 
- Node Pro (T3)
- Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1080 Ti
- Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter
- Thunderbolt 2 cable 
- DELL UP2716D Display 27-inch (2560 x 1440).
- Mini-DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter

Thank you so much for making this!
I'm running a 980ti with Razer Core X, and this script has worked wonderfully.
However I see some of you have a GPU disconnect tool up on your status bar on top.. However I do not see that option.

The only way for me to plug/unplug my GPU is to shut down my computer before each plug/pull. Or else my Mac freezes

Could anyone let me know if I could possible run this on my 2017 imac? Or will it be too tricky to set up?

I have an RX580 inside iMac but wanted some extra performance for 3d rendering and Bootcamp games if poss.

Hi Guys!
I have a problem with my setup.
I own a Mac Mini from 2012 (Core i5, 16 gb Ram) and a Gigabyte AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box. Connected via a Thunderbolt adapter from Apple (TB2 to TB3).
The egpu is recognized and runs under MacOS. (Thanks to the work of fr34k!)
But unfortunately I have no sound. The egpu is connected via display port (DP to Hdmi) with my TV. With a connection via Hdmi (Hdmi to Hdmi) I also have no success.
I hope somebody can help me. Many Thanks!

Greetings from Germany!

First I should thank fr34k for making this script. However I have a problem with my setup.
I just updated my iMac (2017, 21.5 with dGPU) to 10.13.6 and used this script, then booted up without eGPU, then plugged it in at login screen. The external monitor lit up but only shows mouse cursor. Help please?

Apple iMac 2017 21.5” 4K + eGPU
dGPU: AMD Radeon Pro 560
eGPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 via Thunderbolt 3 (AKiTiO Node)

Go to system preferences and instead of mirroring the internal display extend it. This would happen if the external display is of lower max resolution than the internal one. If the external is 1080p then if you try to mirror the 2k internal display sometime you get a black screen.  

Also, if you are booting into the mac  you can keep the egpu plugged in and then boot.

Can I ask a question please about internal displays?

I have a 2017 iMac, and soon to arrive Razer Core X + Vega 64 card.

Will I still need the Set eGPU script to accelerate the internal 5k display? Or will Apples recent updates and support for AMD eGPU's take care of that.

Would really appreciate any help with this and possibly getting it set up in Bootcamp.

Thanks. Jen.

NEWBIE: Got the external display working, but VERY lagged, highlight or click on something takes 3-4 seconds to update (refresh). Can anyone advise what the possible resolve if any is.

2017 MBP 15" 10.13.6 High Sierra, TB3, Akitio Node, MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, Monster Ultimate HDMI cable, Acer 1080p HDMI display.

@djmc  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/script-enable-egpu-on-tb1-2-macs-on-macos-10-13-4/paged/22/#post-42121

Or use automate-eGPU EFI.

But this is not a TB1/2 ?? It's thunderbolt 3, and it's working... just very lagged.

@djmic That script does everything too (this issue is not about scripts anyway). Also see the link - it's actually about a TB3 Mac (see previous posts by the user in the thread).
