[SCRIPT] fr34k's macOS-eGPU.sh - one script, all solutions, fully automated
hot plug and log out, log in works in nearly all cases. Try it and let me know if it worked.
Hot damn it worked! Yeah had the black screen with mouse cursor visible issue, but after logging off and logging in again its running buttery smooth!!! Thanks so much fr34k!!!
Unfortunately not in my case. If I lock out the second monitor jumps on but the imac screen is black and I can not log in because you can not see anything except the mouse. new iMac pro is ordered, hope it solves my problem with the black screen.
You can logout without seeing your screen via the keyboard. Did you try pressing cmd+shift+Q then "return". This should force your system to log out, after which the login screen should appear on your external monitor.
but it does not!

Today I tried the script with MacBook Pro 15" Late 2016 + macOS 10.13.6 (17G65) + Aorus Gaming Box GTX 1070.
I believe that the nvidia driver was the latest, since I only did the script standard install with no special configuration:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/master/macOS-eGPU.sh)
Although it seems that the script runs correctly, and everything is installed, I have some strange bugs.
After booting with eGPU plugged in:
After macOS loads, both macbook's internal display and external display flashes and shows a very distorted image (probably the desktop image).
After some time, macbook's internal display goes black, touch bar behaves strangely and external display shows desktop. But everything is veeeeerrry slow on external monitor. Mouse cursor is veeeery laggy. Clicking on buttons or opening any window is also very laggy. The entire system is very slow.
I tried to log off and log in back, but it only helped the mouse cursor to be a little less laggy. The system was still very slow.
Unfortunately I do not have enough macOS knowledge to help solving this issues, so I will just post the problem here and hope for help.
Thanks @fr34k and everyone else for the great job you are all doing for this community!
I installed this today on my New 2018 13,3" MacBook Pro with a Aorus Gaming Box 1080 and I am surprised to be able to tell you that it works flawless, I can even enable G-Sync without problems. I also installed Boot Camp because I expected problems with macOS but in Windows 10 I get all kinds of problems (USB doesn't work, can't set resolutions correctly et cetera). So keep up the good work, and maybe... also build a script for windows? 😉
- I backed up, installed 10.13.6 over 10.13.4 and rebooted.
- I then installed the script, rebooted and then logged in, hot plugged both eGPUs at the same time, then logged out and in again.
- Verified in System Information > Graphics / Displays that both 1080Tis are showing up as External GPUs.
C4D Renders all working fine; I tested Octane, Redshift and Cycles4D.
You are a genius! Fantastic work
uhh, intriguing but windows isn't my main platform, I detest the PowerShell and the cmd.exe, and first and foremost, I'd have no clue of where to start. So this is a huge maybe...
I'll hope I can keep the macOS-eGPU.sh up-to-date until Apple decides to the work of incorporating NVIDIA.
I'm facing the exact same issue, can you try logging in as guest user, to see if Chromium based apps are causing the issues? It seems to be the fact that Chromium apps try to use the dGPU acceleration which makes the GPU shit itself
Just tried the new version and it’s working perfectly - everything accelerated, and no lag. Works fine with the log in, hot plug, log out & in again protocol. What I can’t work out though is how to sleep or shut down without a last-minute KP. Any suggestions?
Hey dude, I've been trying to get this to work for the past week with no luck. When I boot up with my eGPU plugged in after running the default script I get a black screen. I tried connecting my eGPU to an external monitor but nothing shows. Please help me, I am willing to DONATE to anyone who can get it to work for me. I beg anybody for help!!!!!!!!!
