So, in a nutshell, 10.13.3 works?
Here I am, a non-computer type person, desperately wanting to run my Titan X in my Akitio Node through my brand new 2017 iMac Pro 10.13.4, and sad because I've had no luck with ANY script/plan/suggestion/workaround here.
Put me out of my misery - if I downgrade to 10.13.3, will everything actually work? Is this the central, expensive problem here?
I'm assuming you've tried @fr34k's new 10.13.4 script (brilliant automation of other people's solutions); there is hope that 10.13.3 will work for you, with @fr34k's script for 10.13.3. But just to put this out there, if you're a non-computer type person there could be a simpler solution. You might be missing something like when to plug in the eGPU, how to disable SIP, or something else. Gaming on a Mac has proven to me that there is an endless learning curve for computer problems; something I'm getting burned out on at the moment.
I'm sorry I don't know more about the specific problems you're experiencing; my NVIDIA card (GTX 1080 in Aorus Gaming Box) works well on 10.13.4 with the newer script. But figuring out just how to nurture this fragile relationship was a real pain in the rear.
If you want to give more details, people on here are super helpful!
@comfycat Thankyou very much for the reply! I think I'll cling to my non-eGPU sadness until we get something all official from Apple - from what I can piece together that seems to be the real bottleneck!
@alphabet73 I believe Apple has offered to support AMD eGPUs as of 10.13.4. The new Gigabyte RX (some number) I believe is going to be plug-and-play with the macOS you have, and there's a group buy on here somewhere for $599 each. But if you mean an Apple OEM eGPU, well, it's a future possibility!
