Error 12 is not caused by Windows - it's an issue of Apple's firmware. 

Hybrid Graphics can make it easier to use an eGPU in Windows together with another GPU - but it does not support every combination of GPUs. AMD + Nvidia for instance... all Hybrid Graphics can do with this combination is working with the Basic Display Device driver + the eGPU. It is still not possible to use AMD and Nvidia.

I have a Windows 10 1803 running with AMD Radeon 560X for the internal display and nVidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti as eGPU, which can, in 1803 hybrid mode, accelerate the internal display.

2018 15" MBP & 2015 13" MBP connected to RTX2080Ti GTX1080Ti GTX1080 Vega56 RX580 R9-290 GTX680

 
2018 15" MacBook Pro (RP560X) [8th,6C,H] + RX 5700 XT @ 32Gbps-TB3 (ASUS XG Station Pro) + Win10 & macOS 10.15.4 // Navi vs Radeon VII vs GTX 1080 Ti [build link]

Hey All!

Thanks for all the great info! I am totally fresh at this, so I would like to just make sure I got it right before investing in any hardware Smile
I have a 15" 2016 MBP with Mojave installed.

To run CUDA, mojave is out of the picture right? So if I downgrade to High Sierra, could I use CUDA with any of the NVIDA GPUs in the list above in an eGPU setup given that I follow the solution provided by @goalque?

Much appreciated!

Cheers,
Jens

Hi,

I have brought a AORUS Gaming Box (without the 1080) for my 2017 MBP 13 base line. I believed MSI Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX can be used with this enclosure. I am waiting both to be arrived next week. So, basically all I need to do is to install EFI automate-eGPU solution by Goalque, and I am good to go?Am I right? I can't with to play some DOTA 2 with max settings!

Hi 
I have a 2017 13 inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar running Mac OS Mojave and I am planning to buy an eGpu specially for gaming on bootcamp. I might also use it for some video editing purposes in Mac OS. Right now I am stuck between the Aorus gtx 1070 gaming box and Gigabyte rx580 gaming box. Is the Aorus gaming box just plug and play on bootcamp ? (After installing the drivers) I have heard people having problems with their Nvidia egpus in bootcamp after updating to Mojave. I know the rx 580 will be plug and play in Mojave and therefore I consider buying it and save the hassle. If the gtx 1070 will work on bootcamp without any complicated steps, please let me know, because this is gonna be the deciding factor.
Thanks

@Eddiexx, I also have that same MSI card.  As of 10.14.1 the RX560 is natively supported for EGPUs.  Everything should be plug and play.

2018 Mac mini Core i5 6-core. Akitio Node with MSI Aero ITX Radeon RX 560. macOS 10.14.1 Mojave only.

Hey, question:

(I'm going to be very specific in this question)
How can I play CSGO in Mojave 10.14.2 with the Blackmagic eGPU pro? (Non bootcamp)
WITH a Samsung U28E590D monitor (Im wondering if I can game on the external monitor) Through the HDMI 2.0 (4k 60Hz)
I heard that eGPUs dont work with steam??
Please get back to me ASAP!

I was told yesterday by a Genius tech at an Apple Store that I could use the new eGPU Blackmagic Pro with a Thunderbolt 3-to-2 adapter and significantly speed up times in FCPX on my Mac Pro 2013.

Thoughts?
