Okay WTF of the week. My U28E590D 4K display has support for AMD FreeSync which I naturally have turned off. When I turned it on, it works (no more black screen). This defies all logic.

Has anyone been able to get this successfully working with a MacBook Pro model with an nVidia internal discrete GPU (e.g. the mid-2012 Retina models, 2013 or 2014 models with discrete GPU)? I looked through the thread and couldn't actually see if anyone had even tested it on one of those, let alone if it worked. I saw a couple 2014 models, but it wasn't specified if they had a discrete GPU or integrated only GPU. Given the discrete nVidia GPU models won't work with an AMD eGPU in High Sierra, I want to be safe if possible before upgrading my whole system to High Sierra Smile

Yes my  mid 2014 rMBP with discreet m750 works with a GTX 680. The 680 is a orginal  Mac version so it has boot screens.

At current, I do not see any iGPU-based or NVIDIA-based macbook failed, whereas the newest macbook has several failures.

Did you not see the previous part of this post?

Yes, I’ve read through the whole thing. There are two potential machines in the successes that have an Nvidia discrete Gpu. A 2013 15” and a 2014 15”. Neither specifies though so they could both be integrated gpu only. I’m hoping for confirmation of one with an Nvidia discrete gpu

Gave it a go on my TV... but black screen...

edit: Didn't notice at first but both displays are being powered by the 1070! Makes me think the old "headless adapter" trick may work to get my internal and LG screen working? The GPU wasn't detected on the HDMI port only the Display port. Thoughts?

Hey guys, I'm 10.13.1 Beta (17B45a), I tried to install Nvidia drivers but it says it doesn't support this version. Is there anything I could do to install it? I wanna test on my Macbook Pro 2017 + Mantiz Venus + 1080ti.

I had the same problem.

I installed from the App Store -> High Sierra (standard method = downgrade OS), on top of betta 4 (10.13.1).

And it all worked.

late - 2011 17″ MBP + Akito Thunder 2 + GTX1050ti + external display 1080p + macOS10.13.3 & Win10

I had the same black screen issue I had to download SwitchResX and enable the helper application and change the external screen from "Billions of Colors" to "Million of Colors" issue went away, If I revert back to "Billions of Colors" black screen come back this is on an Acer X34

Anyone looking to change the bit depth of their display should try this:

Download this app  http://resxtreme.com

and set external monitor to 8 bits/sample in Menu/ File/ Apply Selected Mode

I followed this method to get FCPX working when the eGPU is connected.
