Some freezes when playing game.

My setup is AKiTiO Node / MacBookPro 13 inch mid 2014 with 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 (over Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter and TB2 cable) / macOS 10.12.5 Sierra / MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

Everything is working, Heaven benchmarks is much better than built-in Intel Iris. However in some games picture freezes for some time (about 100ms I think). Freezes almost doesn't depend on game quality settings. Even in lowest settings there is some freezes with eGPU while built-in Intel Iris is working like a charm.

Does someone faced with same issue? Is it normal behavior? How to find out where is a problem?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Nvidia web drivers for GTX 10 series are in beta. These glitches are likely due to the drivers.
