Hi
I have 1 x Akitio Node with 1 x 1080Ti in OSX 12.6 on a 2013 MacPro. Been working fine for ages now.

I'm about to add a second box and another 1080ti. Do I need to run the automate-eGPU.sh script again for the new card, go through the same process as before, or is there less to do as a result of having 1 box+card working?

Secondly - should I upgrade to 10.13.4 or stay on 12.6 (the machine is starting to misbehave under 12.6, especially other apps like Premiere)
- if so, what's the best way to go about things? Do I need to uninstall eGPU support somehow, then upgrade OSX, then follow the 10.13.4 guide for 2 eGPUs+1080ti's? - whats the best complete process?

thanks

I'm really confused as to the process. There seems to be lots of different guides on here. Could someone please help confirm the right steps.

I'm going to upgrade to 10.13.6
do I then run PurgeWrangler to enable TB2 support?
and then automate-eGPU.kext by Goalque or some other script?
when do i install Nvidia + Cuda drivers - or if they're already running they are fine?

I have 1 x Akitio Node with an Nvidia 1080Ti and will be adding a second Node+1080Ti

please help!
