[APP] NVIDIA eGPU support for High Sierra (NVIDIAEGPUSupport)
Sometimes the only thing that changes is the build number to match the new build number of the Mac OS update. So sometimes we can use an older driver and just patch the build number to the newer Mac build number
in case anyone is stuck on 10.13.4 beta 2/3 without a time machine backup, I managed to revert back to 10.13.3 using option-command-r during startup then reinstall macos without losing any files or settings. my egpu works again! i wont even check for updates until it's confirmed to be working here
That works?!? That sounds so sketchy haha. I know you can just install the previous combo update right in Mac OS, but reinstalling from recovery seems like it would wipe everything. Glad it worked for you and you didn’t lose anything.

That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.
Setup working 99% at this point.
Works fantastic, the only "issue" is if i close the lid the monitor never shuts off to just use the 3 external ones, it always things the internal one is on an active. There is a little bit of lag when doing day to day things which is strange because, Heaven benchmark looks really good hovering around 110fps. might try taking off the daisy chain coming out of the Akitio node to see if that helps at all.
Just moved up to the new 17D102 build. the new 158 driver kept giving me the same black screen problem when logging in that 156 did on build 17D47. Used the webdriver.sh script to download and install the older 104 driver and patch to build number 17D102 and everything is back working.
Im hoping its just a fluke or something, but im benchmarking about 25% lower after this update!!!
Automatic graphics switching was on so i turned that off and reran (literally the only change i made, not even a reboot) and benchmarks are back to normal. Still about 10% off the highest I've ever hit, but right in line with the past couple updates.
