Hi there,

I got some very strange problem when I connect with my Mantiz Venus with Nvida GTX1080Ti, in the system panel I can find the eGPU is detected and in the OctaneRender I can find my GTX1080Ti as well. The problem is the external display is always black and my Mac still think it is connected as a secondary display. Is there any one encounter this strange problem?

Regards.

Have you tried logging out (not reboot) then log in again? This has worked in a number of different systems. 

Hi DANgerous25,

I try many times without connect->log in->connect->log out->waiting external display->external display is black and can see cursor, internal display shows as second display no login window-?>type password login without see anything->still black screen for the external display, can see the cursor.

Everything is all good when I am using 10.13, I have not tested it in 10.13.1.

I have same problem now – the external display is black (can see cursor), was ok until the 2018 update but can’t rollback now. 

Yes, I have the same problem, I can see the cursor but noting in the external display.

Hey all,

Installed [17C205]NVDAEGPUSupport-v4-SU.zip (enabled SIP after driver installation) + WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.104.pkg (disabled SIP) on MBP 2017 15″ with Mantiz Venus + EVGA 1080 TI SC2. The gpu card is not even detected by the system. The only use is still in Bootcamp + Win 10 1709.

Cheers

I noticed a lot of people are having issues. I noticed a pattern though, they always say “plugged in eGPU and then powered on and logged in” and then they have issues…. you’re doing it wrong….it’s important to READ.

WITHOUT the eGPU plugged in, power on your Mac, login, plug-in eGPU, restart/logout, power on/login AND WAIT. Your screen might go all crazy, flash a few things, just wait and chill the F out.

Took about 5 minutes before mine kicked in…once it did, my mac was super laggy, like the cursor was SUPER laggy, skipping across the screen, I painfully navigated to system report to confirm, EVERYTHING was recognized, I then navigated to display preferences and turned off display mirroring and then went to display arrangement and moved the little white bar from the top of the smaller display (the internal display) to the big display (my external display), BOOM and it works perfect…that’s it, that’s all!

I spent several days reading through all 23 pages in this thread, reading through the issues others were having, to get a wide scope of what people were doing wrong and what people were doing right.

Turns out most folks having issues are just simply doing it wrong, as in the order of procedure.

Anyways, everything seems to be working, even after I mucked around in display preferences, things were still a little laggy, like moving around windows and such, but within 10 minutes, it smoothed out and is now perfectly fine…still haven;t rebooted, so we’ll see what happens after that, but I am able to get 120Hz, Metal is supported, etc, etc, etc. Everything looks A+ on the compatibility front…now to install bootcamp and deal with all that…wish me luck!

Would also like to thank the community for all of their input and experiences as well as the developer for creating these patches to get Nvidia cards to work with our machines! Like seriously, thank you so much! Saved me from wasting money on a Vega 64 and miss out on my monitors G-Sync!!! 

 

After powering properly the 1080 Ti (both 8pins connectors), it’s working much better.

I have now my extended desktop working between both displays (internal and external). I read somewhere and I can confirm that closing the lid does not shut the internal display, it just does nothing. This is probably something with the NVidia drivers ( ? )

I ran some test and everything looks cool. I’ll do more but this is promising. I do hope Apple and NVidia are going to work on this at some point and we’ll have in the future better support for that kind of configuration.

 

What’s the best move if I want to work only on the external display ? Mirroring and close the lid ? Wait for better support ?

MacBook Pro 2016 - 3,3 GHz Intel Core i7 - 16 GB RAM - Mantiz Venus eGPU with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB connected to AOC U3277PWQU (4K) running 10.13.2 (17C205) and NVIDIAEGPUSupport
Soon adding an AMD Radeon RX580 8GB (Gigabyte GV-RX580XTRAORUS-8GD) to use with 10.13.4 beta.

Dude you rock! Working smoothly here after unplugging the EGPU logging in. Then I plugged it in after I had logged and checked the system profiler to make sure it recognized my 1080ti. Logged back in and it was magic! 

Currently running my 2016 Macbook Pro 15inch with an Akitio Node with a corsair PSU and a 1080ti. All connected to an Acer Predator X34 running at native 3440×1440 at 100hz with g-sync enabled!

Buttery smooth monitor now not just on windows but mac as well! 

 

Thanks again!

gesh, I’m late to the game on this…    Getting more than annoyed from the High Sierra “update” reminder everyday.    I’m on a 2011Mid MacMini w/1060 3GB GTX.   Once I get a good backup of the OS (cloned SSD), will do the upgrade to HighSierra and finishing up the rest of the updates for the eGPU to get this online.

SUCCESS!   This was fairly painless to implement.   Upgrade to High Sierra took the longest, then had to toggle the SIP and install the pkgs and final reboot.

The one and only issue I have is related to High Sierra… which is no longer being able to boot back to OSX from BootCamp using the icon in the tray “Boot back to OSX”.   This sucks because I have to constantly plug my HDMI cable back in order to see my native screen (holding OPTION key).  Hoping they update this for the old way to work again.

I use BOOTCAMP to play Destiny2 on the MacMini.    Other than that, feel free to include my name on the successful list, believe I might be one of the older MACs working.

 

Edit… So looks like I had to apply the 10.13.2 update, which required newer pkg.   This also worked for me:

@fireheadman

I’m really impressed of your setup, myself i’ve got an Mini late 2012 with high sierra and i’m really in the need of some extra graphic power.

My question is, is your setup working on both Windows and MacOSX? Because i have not installed windows and i’m not intending to do so

and all of my games are bought on Steam in the Mac version, so i really hope that i’m able to get more graphic power with an eGPU for my mini.

@fuberman,   click on my signature (link to build thread on this forum).   Yes, I have BootCamp running Windows 2016 (Creators Edition – 1709).   Both OS’s function with the eGPU.   One issue I have is timing the physical thunderbolt connection on bootup for windows.   This started happening when the Creators Edition was installed.   Windows 2016 seems to think its great to force updates now.    You can avoid this by configuring updates to the business model/schedule, but it will eventually apply the update (just prolongs the updates).    Otherwise things are working great.

 

As for other things…  it appears I had yet another HighSierra update overnight, so I woke up to no monitors working.   Once I plugged in the HDMI, I saw the issue.   Just needed to download and install the latest Nvidia Web Drivers and the matching pkg (one page one).   I have gone through 3 of the updates so far, but everything is working great  (aside the windows issue I mentioned)

My setup: MBP 15-inch 2017 with Radeon Pro 560, Aorus Gaming Box GTX 1080, Mac Os X: 10.13.2

Followed the installation instructions on page 1, hotplugged AFTER login – log out – login again. Make external display main display and everything works!

However,

Problem 1) Mac OS X lists the connection speed (under thunderbolt Bus 1) as “Up to 20Gb/s”. How do I fix this? (eGPU connect to right top port)

Problem 2) How do I unplug eGPU without crashing things? Is there a way to do this without restarting the laptop?

Well addressing your two problems:

1) Because you’re using a 15” MBP there is no difference in ports. Should you, however, want to run several high-bandwidth peripherals simultaneously, try to distribute them between your right an left side to even out the PCIe lane usage.
Your bottleneck (20Gbps) might be due to:

  1. Your eGPU enclosure (unlikely)
  2. Your cable (likely); look for both a lightning bolt AND a 3 on your cable, then and only then it supports 40Gbps
  3. Some other bottleneck I don’t know of

2) ATM no, this is not possible. Even a shutdown often causes a crash for me due to the Mac’s ability to power on when connected to external power supply.

I’ll be grateful for advice where I’m making a mistake.

Setup: Macbook pro (late 2013), Akitio Node, TB2 to TB3 cable, GTX 780Ti, DVI to VGA cable, Goalque sript. (Everything works well till High Sierra update.)

 

Here`s my workflow after updating to High Sierra

1 – Goalque script unistalled using automate-eGPU.sh command-line option -uninstall

2 – SIP enabled, reboot

3 – Latest NVIDIA WEB drivers succesfully installed 

4 – SIP disabled, reboot

5 – NVDAEGPUSupport-v4-SU.pkg succesfully installed

6 – Reboot with egpu connected – gpu properly detected, cuda computing works well, no external screen detected

7 – Reboot without egpu connected, connect egpu and Log Out – internal screen goes black, no external screen output, os not responding rr

Thank You in Advance

I’m having an issue with the latest macOS High Sierra update. I was able to have my eGPU setup working about a month ago, but it has stopped working since.

Part of the reason may have been that my computer would freeze up in the middle of logging in and decrypting FireVault after the new update, so I did a PRAM reset, which re-enables SIP/csrutil. So I deleted and re-installed the eGPU stuff, but still run into the same issue. More information below:


 SYSTEM INFORMATION

macOS High Sierra
Verision 10.13.2 (17C88)
iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)
FireVault enabled

Processor
3.4 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Built-in Graphics
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4 GB

eGPU
BizonBox 3 (AKiTiO Thunder3 PCIe Box)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, 11 GB, 3 DP, HMDI
Running with Internal Display Enabler (Ghost Display)

External Monitor
Dell Ultra HD 4k Monitor P2715Q 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor

NVIDIA WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.102

(Hope that’s all the information needed. Let me know if something is missing that you’d need to know to help diagnose.)


 STEPS TAKEN

  1. Deleted NVDAEGPUSupport.kext from /System/Library/Extensions
  2. Open Terminal and ran sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ && sudo kextcache -u /
  3. Uninstalled NVIDIA Driver Manager
  4. Rebooted into Recovery Mode and ran csrutil enable
  5. Rebooted and re-installed NVIDIA WebDrivers
  6. Rebooted into Recovery Mode and ran csrutil enable –without kext
  7. Rebooted and ran the NVDAEGPUSupport-v4.pkg
  8. Rebooted and it freezes at login and decrypting for FireVault

I am able to boot into Safe Mode, hotplug the eGPU, logout, log back in and the eGPU is detected and running fine, but since it’s Safe Mode, I’m not able to use my computer with normal programs.

However, as soon as I reboot into normal mode, it will freeze up at decrypting for FireVault again—whether or not I have the eGPU plugged in at all. The only way to be able to get back in is to reset PRAM again or go into Recovery Mode and re-enable csrutil enable.

So it seems to me that everything was done correctly since the eGPU is able to be detected and running in Safe Mode, but there seems to be a problem when I have csrutil enable –without kext after the NVDAEGPUSupport-v4.pkg has been executed. Meaning there’s some kind of problem with the NVDAEGPUESupport.kext when I have csrutil enable –without kext (and possibly some issue with the kext and FireVault)?

Scanning through the thread here, seems like there’s some similar problems with the High Sierra update, but I didn’t see any that has the exact same problem.

I also went into Verbose Mode and noticed this line:
kextd stall[0], (60s): ‘NVDA,Display-A’

User shameel seemed to maybe have a similar problem [Link to Post #24132].

Anyone have a solution, guesses, insight, or any sort of advice here?

Thanks.

Try to update the firmware. As far as I know, mainly the 1070 gaming box has a low H2D-speed at stock firmware, but maybe your box could need the firmware-update from Gigabyte too?

Sadly my own 1080 Gaming Box shipping was delayed to 26.01, otherwise I could test it with my MBP 15-inch 2017  with RP560.

Ok, so 40Gb/s connection is established finally. Haven’t tried anything special, tried different ports/restarted the system couple times/booted to bootcamp etc. and now Mac OS X says 40Gb/s connection is established between MBP and AGB.

How do you checked this bandwidth on MacOS ?

Open the app systeminformation, then look in the thunderbolt subsection, follow your daisy chain of thunderbolt devices, click on your eGPU enclosure, then in the informations sector below, you will see the glorious 40Gbps speed

SUCCESS AND WORKING (NOT PERFECT)

Hi guys, i was looking forward to buy an ogpu to match my mac.

i saw that these two guys had managed to make the egpus work with the very same mac model i own System specs :

Mid 2014 15″ MacBook Pro (Nvidia GT750M + Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB)
High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88)

https://egpu.io/forums/implementation-guides/need-some-help-with-14-mbp-akitio-t2-evga-1050ti/#post-28867
and
https://egpu.io/forums/which-gear-should-i-buy/does-gigabyte-aorus-gtx-1080-gaming-box-can-be-use-with-mbp-w-tb2-tb3-to-tb2-adapter-on-macos-10-12-6-not-windows/#post-26064

so after seeing and researching this, i decided to go with an aorus gaming box 1080 for my setup

after following this article i could make my aorus be detected at the thunderbolt tab in the system information, but i cloud not see it under the graphics tab.
i needed to update my macOS build version from 17C88 to 17C205 and reinstall everything TWICE (AFTER ALL RESTARTS AND SIP ENABLE AND DISABLE)
Only then i cloud start to see the egpu in my system info

detected and conected

then i set the external display to the main and the graphic card got detected like this

8gb

and this are the results im getting from it

bench

BUT, i have no sound over HDMI is that right?
There is some programs that i usa for work like MARMOSET and substance painter and designer that DOES NOT OPEN/or show anything with the egpu.
FINDER seems also with some black spots or missing menus
The power delivery does not work at all.

What should i do to increase the compatibility with those programs? (i bought it mainly to work with)

as for the plug in timing: i need to plug the thunderbolt 2 as soon as i see the apple logo, if i unplug it anytime after running it crashes the whole system, so i have to shut down in order to unplug.
if you plug before the apple logo it will not load the os and will be kept rebooting until you unplug it. i had no need to log in and out to make it works.

thank u guys!

@psm Hey bud! Awesome, glad you got it running =)

Ya so I noticed that I had some performance issues even though everything was working and setup perfectly, did some digging around and it turns out that even when the display is closed, the eGPU is still trying to accelerate the internal display! Which is strange considering the actual “display is off”, but I guess the resource demand from it is still asking for those resources…best way I can explain it, I’m no expert or anything, lol.

ANYWAYS, it was recommended to try using an app called “SwitchResX”. You can download it and run as a trial version for 10 days I believe (which is what I’m doing currently). What it does in addition to allowing you to choose all sorts of resolutions to set your display at, it also allows you to choose which displays to “enable” or “disable”. 

That being said, once you install it, from the “general settings” inside the app, make sure you check the box that says “only switchresx can enable a disabled screen”.

Then, go to “display sets” and create a new setting for your monitor and make any settings you’d like to adjust/set.

Then go to your menu bar on your desktop and click on the switchresx icon and locate “ColorLCD”, that should be your internal display…hover your mouse over it and click disable.

Your external monitor will flash black or seem to turn off, mine was black for about 30-45 seconds, but then it’ll come back on. And that’s it! 

If you hover your mouse (in the switchresx menu bar icon) over your external display, you’ll see all of the resolution options that your monitor supports, even what refresh rate you want. I have mine at 3440×1440 @ 120Hz 😉

Hope that helped =)

Now that 10.13.3 has been released I hope we can hear from AMD and/or NVIDIA as to whether this release provides additional and/or improved drivers. And additional support or stability that negates the need for some of these third party scripts (not that they aren’t appreciated).

At some point we need to get to a place where these kinds of hacks are not required to use officially sanctioned (even if beta) drivers. Was hopeful we’d have that by now and then spring would bring a raft of drivers but it doesn’t appear that is the plan so far.

This happens when the safari window is not wide enough, when I shrink mine down to 1428px wide it happens too.

Just thought I’d add my experience here.  I’m on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) with an Akitio Node and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6 GB.  I  was happily running High Sierra 10.13.1 .  Then my computer updated to 10.13.2 (pretty sure I told it “remind me later” or “leave me alone, I don’t want to update” but it did it anyway). When I came to my computer it was unresponsive but “on”.  I held power to shut down, then powered back up with the eGPU and every other peripheral disconnected.  It gave me time estimates of finishing the update (that I didn’t want) and I went to bed.  This morning I get up to see the white apple on a black screen with the progress bar stalled at the very end.  I hard shut down, power up and it gets to the end of the progress bar and stops again.  Wait half an hour and no change.  So I boot in recovery mode (Command-R) and get into the terminal.  I rename /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library/Extensions/NVDAEGPUSupport.kext to NVDAEGPUSupport.kext.old  then restart.  The Mac was back to being able to boot up (although with no eGPU).  Then I came to this thread, made sure I had the latest web driver, restarted… and ran the NVDAEGPUSupport-v4-SU.zip program to get my eGPU support back.  I still have to have the TB cable unplugged when I hit power on the Mac and wait to plug it in until the white apple logo and progress bar show up, but everything is working again.  I didn’t read through all the other posts, so it’s possible that this procedure has already been described but I thought it would be helpful (even just for myself) to know how to work around an OS update stopping the computer from booting.  When I was using automate-eGPU.sh from goalque I had to make sure to enable -a to avoid plugging in the thunderbolt cable for the eGPU at just the right time (any time after the progress bar shows up, but not before) but I don’t believe there is such a mode for NVDAEGPUSupport.  But hey, timing for a cable connection is a small price to pay 🙂

Hi so I am not success for few weeks ago, but I just use the external monitor to work. Now I think I have to fix this problem so I put my issue on it.

System Version: macOS 10.13.2 (17C205)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017 mid)

EGPU bos: AKITIO Node pro 

Model of graphic card: Titan X 12G (Maxwell)

Model of your display: Acer P236HL, using DVI cable.

I tried to instill and uninstall many time. But it just always like this. 

I can very sure I do the right way to install. I have already go research that is someone have some model with me, but they are no.

External monitor is working, and it work fine. But my MBP still cannot change to use my eGPU. 

So I just fo the mirror display to use for a while. 

I really want to know how to fix this problem. 

Thank you 🙂

New drivers for 10.13.3 (17D47) – https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/387/WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.156.pkg – and the updated activator.

It is likely an issue with the new Nvidia drivers or whatever Apple changed, but my setup no longer works after installing the above – just black screens with no cursor.   It was working on the previous version.  I have a MBP 2017 13″ with an Akitio Node and an Nvidia 750 Ti card.

Thanks for your dedicated and quick work on these enablers!

I had no time today for deep testing, so I’ve just checked my eGPU w/o an external monitor – the card was detected correctly.

But hackintosh users report about issues with new drivers, so the problem might be on Nvidia side.

I had my setup working in win10, but to activate with a cd-key, it automatically updated and I got the “error 12”, so I tried to reinstall win10 and just not activate it, but it installed that newer update.

Then I thought f*** it, I’m just gonna run it in High Sierra. So I installed the drivers and got I working, but my 1080’s fans dont run, so the egpu is useless..

Anyone else had this problem, and might have a way to fix it?

MacBook Pro 15" 2016 + HP Omen Accelerator + ASUS Nvidia GTX 1080 A8G

Seems to be not a gerneral issue. The updated driver and eGPU script helped me to reenable the eGPU after the update yesterday. Except a flickering windows boot logo on the internal display everything works now with macOS 10.3.3. (MBP late 2016 2TB Ports, Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box with GTX 1080)

Setup: MacBook Pro late-2016 13" non-Touchbar; macOS 10.3.3 & Windows 10 Bootcamp; Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350 with a Zotac GTX1080 AMP! Edition
(StarWars Battlefront 2 in 4k resolution and ultra high graphics on a device which has a lower Geekbench score than my iPhone, yay!)

I tried this on an iMac 5K with a Sonnet breakaway box /w 1080.  The login/logout method works but the internal display still uses the Radeon 580.  The external displays use the Nvidia.  Rebooting with the eGPU connected takes very long, but it works on just the external monitor (but very laggy / unusable).

Any ideas?

I would like to know if it is recommended to update from 10.13.2 to 10.13.3 and use the new drive.

I might do something different or fix some problems? or they are pretty much the same but just a version for the other os build?

Id stay on 10.3.2 for now. 10.3.3 doesn’t seem to be very reliable yet. I already used time machine to roll back to 10.3.2 because i couldn’t get my external monitor to work for the life of me.

how about now? bro? I have similar problem. Pascal, Tb2, Akitio Node 3. Both GPU shown in “Graphics/Displays”, but only built-in Intel Iris is in use. Both internal and external monitors use Iris.
