UUuugh.  So close!

MBP 13" (2016 - four thunderbolt 3 ports), 10.13.2, using 4035-nvidia-egpu-v4 installer.

Using Mantiz Venus with a GTX 1080 stock ref. card from NVIDIA.

System identifies the secondary display, but its black and only displays mouse.  Tried several recommendations having egpu not plugged in while starting up, then plugging in and logging in, etc.  

I don’t know if the 2017s have the problem or not, but previous 13” models had two thunderbolt ports with lower bandwidth. Have you tried hooking up the eGPU on the other side?

2017 MBP 15, Radeon Pro 560, High Sierra 10.13.2 | Akitio Node, Geforce GTX 980ti, TB3 cable that came with the Node

Doesn't work.  It only shows up as a VGA-Compatible Controller even after the driver and egpu package is installed. Had to use the WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.102 pkg from insanelymac because the one in the first post of this thread only asks me to update macOS (no updates available).

Successfully enabled with a GTX 1060 3GB and HP Omen Accelerator on a Late 2016 Macbook Pro 15" (17C88).

As mentioned before by some other users, hot plugging + logout + login is the only way the system recognizes the card. It's also the least glitchy when plugged in on the right side.

Overall, installation was even easier than Goalque's method for Sierra because this was contained as one executable pkg file. Reinstalling CUDA was a major PITA though, due to there being no proper uninstaller.

@dotcommer - try switching between displayport and HDMI cables. HDMI resulted in a black screen for me as well.

For me not working.

Follow my specs:

> MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2 with CU < Clean install 

> MBP 2017 15 with Radeon Pro 560 and TouchBar;

> Akitio Node + Asus GTX1080 Strix;

I followed the instructions:

1. Check SIP status and ensure that’s is enabled;

2. Install the NVidia Web driver ended with 25.103

> Side Note: on this install is showed an warning about to enable the driver on security settings;

3. Boot on safe mode, disabled SIP.

4. Install the complement to enable eGPU v4 CU version;

5. Reboot

6. Login with akitio desconected;

7. Plug akitio, and check System Information, and this is present and recognized (my unit has the firmware updated to v25) check the vídeo Cards tab, and Nvidia Chip Model is showed;

8. After that i logoff, on that stage the screen comes to black and stuck on this. I tryed boot with akitio plugged whem i perform login this hangs after login and stuck on this. At any of stuck moments if i unplug the akitio MacOS crashes.

 

For now, i trying to perform another clean install, but i will keep on non CU version.

 

I appreciate any help.

 

best Regards

The most successful method for me is to boot the computer with the eGPU unplugged. When you reach the login screen plug it in and wait. The screen should freeze up, or give you a spinning icon, or go black and come back, usually takes about 5-10 seconds. Then the external monitor comes on as well, then log in.

 

logging out sometimes locks up the computer for me so rebooting and pluggin in at the login screen is the most reliable method for me. 

In my case, don’t work at all, the logon screen stuck on spinning icon. I left the Mac around 5 minutes and nothing.

I have been using MBP 13" mid 2014 with AORUS 1080 gaming box successfully in elder version (10.12.x).

Which was working fine for a while. However, my my careless mistake, the macOS got upgraded to 10.13.3 BETA ( YES! i was shocked after wake up this morning). 

Apparently everything screwed. I got all my documents backup in NAS, so, i just erase everything and reinstall 10.13.2 from scratch. 

Once i finished the setup, Mac detected the driver and the 1080 successfully. However the external Display is blank, but only see a curosr on it. 

After spending a few hours without any clues. With some luck, i'm successfully to enable the external monitor. 

I'm not sure how's it related. I have enable the SIP in recovery and everything works like a charms! Hope it helps ! 

csrutil enable

Wish you all a Merry Xmas!

Hi Guys,

Worked! I discovered the problem (I think rs) is: FileVault after disabled this all works.

When this is enabled the process not working, I can reach only the step when the Nvidia Chip Model is showed on the System Report, after that only black screen on logon;

For now my specs are:

  • Hardware:
  • 2017 MPB 15, Radeon Pro 560 MPTT2LL/A;
  • Akitio Node with Firmware 25,1;
  • Asus Strix GTX 1080
    • Side note: To install this Cards on akitio I installed the extra power connectors as the picture link;
  • Software:

Next steps is install coda, and some machine learning libraries.

Kindly Regards!

I have a quick question for those who have looked into the code for this kext and its installer:

Does the installer/kext modify NVDA web drivers in any way or not? As far as I can tell, it impersonates the startup web driver (by specifying the same personality, except pointing to the patched classes to override the attach functionality as explained in the README). I don't have High Sierra so I cannot test myself. I believe that no modifications are being made - but would love to have solid confirmation for the same.

 

I am currently investigating into developing a kext such as this to disable NVIDIA dGPUs by similar impersonation by overriding the enableController() function in IOFrameBuffer.h. I would appreciate @yifanlu's thoughts on this - especially if this has potential to succeed or not.

Hi everyone,

I had my setup working till I updated to HS, it is still working on Bootcamp but not in MacOS anymore, thought, it seems to work but it is not functional :

As you can see, the GTX is recognize, and the external monitor is On (the only input is from my GTX) but it looks like it is using the Iris graphic, I tried Fortnite and could only get around 15 fps (I don't have bench app).

 

It is a MBP 13" TB 2016 on HS 10.13.2 with an Akitio NODE & GTX 1070, I followed every step from page 1 multiple times with SIP disable, enable without kext, ... 

Thanks for your help

Hi everyone!

thanks for all the effort people put here. reading through these posts, (this one especially  https://egpu.io/forums/builds/macbook-air-11-inch-mid-2012-gigabyte-aorus-gtx-1070-gaming-box/ ) made me get my confident enough to buy my own egpu - aorous 1070. just as in the pinned post, i am running macbook air 2012, with 1x thunderbolt 1. i am using apple's official thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt adapter with 0.5m apple thunderbolt cable.

so im living the same story as many other users here. card is recognised and lights up but it doesnt really operate - the fan is off and benchamark test, with or without it is about the same. i somehow (dont know how) got it to work once and it did 115fps on ultra in uningine heaven. never worked again thereafter.

so i read through this thread and updated to 13.2. i tried everything but no luck. as my last resort i installed rastafabi's egpu enabler (yes, on high sierra). it did start the fans of my egpu, but it kept crashing with kernel panick right at the login. 

now im stuck. i am about to do clean install (ie. erase everything) of high sierra and try it all again. if that doesnt work i have really no clue. i got my gaming box shipped from US to Europe and i dont know if returing it is an option so i really wish there was a way of getting this to work. reading through the posts here, there certainly is. i just dont get how the very same solution works for someone and doesnt work for other.

anywys peeps, thanks heaps for the support and knowledge base here. if anyone s got something to say about my "symptoms" here, id be most happy 🙂

cheers!

@traceq/@flyinganimal:

This is a long shot, but have you changed your display arrangements to make your external monitor the "primary" monitor? You do this from System Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement, then drag the white bar from your Mac screen to the external monitor. The diagrams below are examples from my setup, whereby my external monitor is arranged to the left of my Mac screen. I've dragged the white bar over. When that is done, my "About This Mac" shows my eGPU instead of the internal one. Hope this helps!

Traceq,

Did you tried disable the Automatic Graphics switching on Energy Saver menu?

Alternatively you can download the gfxCardStatus to "force" the switch.

Best Regards!

hey  @DANgerous25

thanks for the hint! yes i did try that already. what i found out, and that is quite a curiosity, the perfromance even degrades when i set my external monitor to primary.
I do see that mac os recognises the egpu now as a power source for both internal and external display, but as it is not actually used, it makes sense that it performs even worse than it would with built in intel graphics...
the question remains, why on earth is not using it, when it knows its there...

@sergiorru
good thing to try for macbook pro users. wouldnt run on mac book air. is there any such tool that you know of that i could use on air?

thanks guys! 🙂

@DANgerous25 : it worked well 

 

@sergiorru : I also tried this app but it won't launch on my Mac, but I guess I won't have to use it since the other trick worked

Thanks a lot everyone, back in the game (y)

Hi guys!

I just got my Aorus 1080. Unfortunately, I am stuck with the installation process. I used the automate-eGPU script on High Sierra 10.13.2 (MBP 2017, 15", Radeon 555).

When I connect Aorus, it shows up in the PCI section as:

1- Display: VGA-Compatible Controller, Driver: No

2- pci10de-10f0: Audio device, Driver: No

3- pci8086,15b6: USB eXtensible Host Controller, Driver: Yes

However, in the graphics, I only have Intel HD Graphics 630 and Radeon Pro 555

Any suggestion?

At least I could manage it on the Windows side. I disabled 1905 and used the integrated.bat, it works. However, the flickering problem is serious.

But no success on the Mac side.

Hey, I have a problem when using this.

I got a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014), and used Akitio thunder box 2 to connect a GTX 970 graphics card. I did use the combination before 10.13, but when I try to install web driver and support script in this thread, my graphics card doesn't show up in the system report. I could see the box from the thunderbolt tab in system report, but the graphics part doesn't change, and the external display also doesn't show up. 

Do you know anything about this situation?

@flyinganimal: could you post screenshots of:

You will have to uninstall Rastafabi's eGPU enabler because that won't work with High Sierra. So I suggest you uninstall anything you've tried to install, then start from the first post in this thread.

Thank you!

 Combo update is one that updates your machine two versions in one go. So instead of doing two updates, one to go from 10.13 to 10.13.1 and then another to go from 10.13.1 to  10.13.2, a combo update will take you directly from 10.13 to 10.13.2. The end result should be the same, but often the versions and signatures of some items are different, which is why the eGPU method varies depending on how you got to 10.13.2, whether incrementally from 10.13.1 or directly from 10.13 with the combo update.

@DANgerous25
Hey!
Thanks for the suggestions. I actually did a clean install of high Sierra meaning that I completely erased the hard drive and started from zero. 
I am running 13.2 now, installed web drivers coda and coda drivers, all of them from Nvidia. then I disabled sip, and I tried to compile the Nvidiaegpusupport from GitHub. I got only as far as building the package (NVDAEGPUSupport.pkg) from build.sh. when I try to run the package I get this error every time:

I kept looking around and found webdriver.sh at https://github.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh.
I installed that successfully as far as I can tell - it is written in usr/local/bin and I managed to run the script and did its thing.

however, I suspect that not being able to run the Nvidiaegpusupport package makes my egpu undetectable, which it is, so I'm sort of where I was, if not further.. anyone any thoughts on how to run the package successfully or any workaround? I feel I'm  getting somewhere anyway but I'm completely stuck here...

thanks heaps for all your help guys 🙂

@DANgerous25

and here are the screenshots. basically, you see that computer doesn't see any displays or graphics connected but it does see something is connected to thunderbolt. hope that can help somehow

thanks again! hope we ll get this running somehow 😛

Hi again everyone!
elaborating on my two previous posts..
the only thing I thought could have helped was installing Xcode so the build.sh script of nvidiaegpusupport can do its thing properly. unfortunately, no luck either....

this is the message I get when compiling it:
---------------------------------

192:~ michalmitro$ sh /Users/michalmitro/Downloads/NVIDIAEGPUSupport-master/package/build.sh 

Building project...

User defaults from command line:

productbuild: Wrote product to /Users/michalmitro/Downloads/NVIDIAEGPUSupport-master/package/NVDAEGPUSupport.pkg

192:~ michalmitro$ 

 

------------------------------------------

it still creates the package itself, but than I can't install it and I get the installation error that I posted earlier.
I figured that one thing that would totally help me out would be if some of you who installed the NVIDIAegpusupport package for high Sierra 13.2 successfully would upload it here or on GitHub? I just can't build it myself for some obscure reason. I found two earlier versions of the package somewhere in the middle of this thread  but those are obviously for high Sierra 13.0 and 13.1 and I can't downgrade to them now... I managed to install 13.1 package without any problem but it won't run my egpu obviously...

I hope someone there can help me out. I ve been trying for over a week now and haven't been able to achieve anything... :/ but surely this is about to change soon 🙂

cheers everyone 🙂

flyinganimal,
all needed files are in the 1st post.

If you want to compile pkg by yourself, open the downloaded project and change dev ID to yours.

hey!

well... it could be that I'm just plain dumb but anytime I download the nvidiaegpusupport from GitHub it doesn't give me executable package file but rather the master file so only thing I can do is to try to build it myself...
anyways, I downloaded NVDAEGPUSupport-v4-CU.pkg that I found some posts back here on this thread and installed it successfully. CUDA sees the driver but Nvidia driver nor system report doesn't recognise my aorous gaming box....

I did exactly what I was meant to but still no success... not sure If there s anything else I could try other then downgrading to Sierra...

tried to download the package at least 10 times and never got an actual .pkg file out of it... i have no clue why is that, and thats also a reason why i suggested someone uploads it here. in the end, i found the fourth version of the package some posts back (as the pinned post on the 1st page doesn't work for me), which is the latest one anyways as far as i know. as i said, no luck on my side.
after three days of formating, erasing installing and just playing a (poor) hacker, i did a clean install of Sierra 12.6. all seems to work fine now with rastafabi's package.
Still don't know what was it that i did wrong. Might be just my setup. I might be just messing things up but does it have something to do with me trying to get thunderbolt 3 case to my macbook air's thunderbolt 1? I read some people had an issue with that on High Sierra.

Anyways, thanks for your help everyone. The main thing is that it works 🙂

Thanks for these awesome tools!

 

I've got me eGPU running quite well but I'm having one quite annoying problem I was wondering if there is a known fix to.

 

First off my specs:

 

The only way for me to boot properly and not crash my computer is to log in without the eGPU, connect it, log out and log in.

I'm very glad this work around exists and I can get my eGPU to function, but it's also insanely tedious to have to do this every time I want to use my eGPU, which could be multiple times a day.

 

Is there a known fix? Something I could try? A direction you could point me?

 

Thanks for all the help!
