[APP] NVIDIA eGPU support for High Sierra (NVIDIAEGPUSupport)
I did not have any startup, shutdown or sleep related problems in 10.12.x at all.
But in every 10.13.x I am unable to put the system to sleep.
Bott up and shut down are always performing as design. Sleep only puts monitors to sleep - it do not put the system to sleep.
I've tried a couple of times to install the latest 387.128 Cuda on 17D102 but I have not managed to get it working.
What would the steps be if I'm already running 104 graphics driver and -without kext?
So far my GPU is recognized and everything seems to be running correctly, but I noticed macOS is not running smoothly. Switching virtual desktops is laggy (20fps - I have no issue with the integrated GPU). Safari is also affected and scrolling is laggy too. Anyone noticed the same issue?
@Username, I just installed the latest Cuda download from the Nvidia website on a mid-2014 MacBook Pro with 17D102,
Titan Xp + Akitio Node Pro + Apple TB3-->TB2 adapter.
I got the newest driver here (161):
Otherwise followed directions per post 1 in this thread.
I just plug the eGPU in before I boot up and everything works; no black screens, log out and back in, etc.
@austinerino Thanks for the suggestion! I don't see any difference, tough. Another example of this issue in Safari: I'm losing frames on YouTube and closing a tab takes 1 second. I have no issue on Bootcamp, Windows 10 runs smoothly.
Hi i'm a new user from Rome (Italy)
This guide worked for my macbook air 13 mid 2013 + Akitio Thunder 2 + gtx 1050 ti 4gb osx 10.13.3
It works on window 7 64 bit too (same rig). the only problem that I have with the microsoft os is that i have to disable the internal gpu to make it work. I'll appreciate any suggestion to make it work better than that
can i enable sip after the installation?
Hello and welcome.
Great to hear everything worked out for you.
You can enable SIP but not for kext as they have been altered.
So you can do a:
csrutil enable --without kext
some times you can be lucky and manage to enable sip all through as thing is cached. But sooner or later you will lose the cache and problems will occur.
I downloaded all the drivers and got my macbook to detect the eGPU but how do I make it choose which GPU to use?
