Dear readers,

I am planning to buy a mantiz venus and a rx580 to go with it.

My questions:

1. I have a 15" mbp with radeon pro 560, will i need to edit anything in the sorts of drivers to make it work?

2. should I upgrade to High Sierra for this, or is it better to stay in Sierra?

 

thank you in advance,

Maximus

Should work plug & play in high sierra.

How about windows?

Will internal acceleration work in either osx or win10?

Should both work.

MacOS out of the box.

Windows will needs some hacks, but should be easier with the 2017 MBP model (less error 12 to be expected).  https://egpu.io/bootcamp-setup-guide-tb3-macbook-pro/
