@fr34k
used Nvidia's control panel to upgrade to the latest (35.106), on 10.13.5 - all seems stable on my 2013 NMP - booting 2 monitors on NVIDIA.
Only problem is monitors don't go to sleep...will finally look into that today.

thanks!!!

thanks for the suggestion mac_editor. I forgot to mention I already tried the power cycle reset many times, tried both TB2 ports and I also see the fan running so it seems like the unit is getting power. I also tried all this again today but to no good.

I guess I'll have to find a different machine to test the Box and see if something has gone wrong with it or if its just my mac. Still confused how it was all working before the upgrade. 

Also there is a chance that I may have run this script/ purge wrangler script with the eGPU connected. I don't know if that may have affected it and if there is a way to reverse it. I know the instructions say not to do it but I may have realized it too late. Just trying to find out any reason what may have caused this. I did reinstall the OS several times after that.

Upgraded the system and used the latest 0.2a script. Everything went just fine. Upgraded the Nvidia driver via the control pannel and also worked as expected. For now everything seems to be working as before. The problems also remain. Are annoying but tolerable. The main ones are shutdown and put the machine into sleep.  As many users describe, we crash the machine or got a kernel panic if we do so.

Hi, again Smile

I have MBP MID 2012 15" TB1 GT650M with Gigabyte Gaming Box GTX1070 eGPU. Today I made fresh reinstall of MacOS 10.13.5 and used this script to activate my eGPU. Script runs very fine! But I'm having problem with my eGPU performance, its very low. I tried to downgrade latest nVidia drivers to older (378.10.10.10.25.104) with webdriver.sh, but I couldn't make it work, only black screen was on MBP and external screen after boot-up MacOS.
I also tried install old drivers with this script (bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/master/macOS-eGPU.sh) --install --nvidiaDriver 378.10.10.10.25.104), but also... it didn't helped.

Maybe somebody found solution how to get back performance to old MBP ?:)

following up with my previous response for the 0.2 alpha version: Lagging still exists. Looks like nothing has improved.

I'm afraid it's a no-go with the MacBook Pro 14,3 (15" 2017.) Install script completed no errors, but no sequence of plugging in nVidia eGPU works. Locks up the system, no graphics either internal or external.

This happened to me as well. 2017 MacBook Pro 15" with AMD 560.

@s4nket Running purge-wrangler with eGPU connected does not affect how it works. Also, @fr34k's script is smart enough to detect this and won't let you proceed without disconnecting eGPU. So you're safe in that regard either way.

Hello there,

i ´m super new with imac and egpu, i have some noob questions, sorry for that!

The script from fr34k:

https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/script-fr34ks-macos-egpu-sh-one-script-all-solutions-fully -automated / paged / 1 /

Install everything I need? cuda driver, nvidea driver, etc?

or do i have to do that manually? if so, before or after the script installation?

In the script tutorial fr34k says: "It is of utmost importance to only connect the eGPU once the script asks for it and then remove it again. Never try to connect or disconnect if the script did not ask for it. You risk damaging the system."

I have two Sonett Brakeway 550 eGPUs and two 1080TIs, so do I have to turn both on during the installation, when asked?

Do I need to re-enable SIP after the installation?

 

any help is welcome!

Thanks.
