Using eGPU for both ext. & int. displays???

To go along with my other topic that still needs help with:  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/2013-15-mbp-w-750m-egpu-enclosure-guidance/

Is there a story of anyone who has successfully used an eGPU to drive the external display and internal display of a Late 2013 MBP w/ 750m at the same time?? Ideally, is it possible for the eGPU to drive the external display and the dGPU drive the internal display simultaneously? And keep in mind, I need the desktop to be extended...NOT mirrored!

Thanks!

In addition to the above question: Has anyone had success, or know if anyone has had success, at using the eGPU to drive TWO external displays? I've only seen just external only or just internal only solutions...no mention of both and no mention of two external displays.

This was accomplished on a mid-2015 15" MBP with M370x dGPU + GTX980Ti eGPU.  Similar, but not the same system as your GT750M earlier model. See details at:

Interesting, so regardless of whether I get the dGPU to run on internal while the eGPU runs on external or not, I'm assuming I have to run through the process of enabling the iGPU on Win10 and install GPU-Switch just to get the eGPU to work?

I also wonder if it's just as easy to have the eGPU to run external and the iGPU to run internal simultaneously...as well as, if the eGPU can drive the internal and external alone? Granted the internal will receive a slight decrease in performance compared to the external...hmm.
