Hello folks, I know I've seen a few other people mention something similar, but wanted to share my experience of using 10.3.3 on iMac Pro: I get a visible performance hit (laggy mouse, a few flickers, laggy scrolling in a web browser). I'm absolutely sure it is related to updating from 10.3.2 to 10.3.3 and/or the associated nVidia webdriver / eGPU package, as I didn't do anything else on my system. I just did a system restore back to 10.3.2 and it's working perfectly again.

Ah great! The version 156 download has been fixed in the first post, that's fast, @devild must have had a version 156 still lying around.

I'm saying that because there is still a Page not found 404 error at the InsanelyMac link for version 156. And also, when updating from the previous version I get an Unable to connect to NVIDIA message. So there's something going on -- could it be another updated version due to user problems with version 156. I'll hold off for a day or two longer.

Hey, the link to the package installer doesn't seem to work anymore is there a new one? Sorry, I don't know how to install the package the normal way, is there a walk through somewhere?

Which package exactly?

The Nvidia drivers, the eGPU enabler? I tested both links and they did work...

No, its just a Time Machine Snapshot. Im assuming that if you have a mac you know what Time Machine is, Right?

That did it! I deleted all files in that folder, disabled auto-updating, rebooted and I got my eGPU functionality back!

So now when I reboot, it won't update to 10.13.3 (thank god!)

Thank you both SO much for your patience and help...seriously, thank you!

You're welcome!

I can only encourage people to use Time Machine when their system is fully functional, since reverting to a previous OS is as easy as a flick of a button.
And with non-official support of Nvidia's GPUs on Mac any update may break compatibility, so a backup is a must have.

I'd like to test 10.13.3 as well, however I'm doing crucial work atm, so I can't afford to wait a day for the restoration to finish...

Well, I didn't have time machine configured, BUT, apparently before major updates, it takes a snapshot backup of everything.

So what I did was boot into recovery and then selected time machine, choose the backup (the only backup) and then restored from that.

From there, because the backup was made just after the 10.13.3 update was already downloaded, I had to go into library/updates and then there was a folder with all of the update files in it. To confirm it was the 10.13.3 update, I right clicked on each file and selected get info to see when the creation date was, they all lined up with the update download date, so I deleted the entire bloody folder, lol.

Rebooted and the update did not install, (because there was no update files to install anymore) and it booted into 10.13.2 the way I had hoped.

I also disabled auto-updates.

Now I know for the future...lol, but in the future I WON'T update until it's be confirmed several times that whatever new update is ready, doesn't break anything.

If you have time on your hand, you can also explore the wild and dangers of updates yourself. Just be sure to backup first... As I said I'd do it but I can't afford losing time atm.

I was able to get the eGPU working again with the latest update, however the performance is abysmal - I get noticeable lag on the external monitor for everything and Safari, for example, can't even render Facebook properly. 

Really should have stayed at 10.12 I guess.

How were you able to get it working?  Any different steps as compared to 10.13.2?

Hey guys,

Currently i'm running a MBP 2016 13" w/ touchbar. It's running MacOS 10.13.3. I've got the Akitio Node and I'm using an NVidia GTX770 for the GPU within the enclosure. I've installed the Nvidia web drivers 156 version. I've got SIP enabled without kext. I then installed the nvidia-egpu-v6 pkg listed above. So far everything appears to be detected with regards to the System Report under PCI and Graphics/Displays however it still defaults to the internal Intel Iris card as shown in the About This Mac window. I've logged in and out plugging and unplugging the Akitio Node is indicated above to get the MBP to switch to the GTX770 however it still defaults to the Internal Iris card.

I haven't tried the RebuildCache function however based on what i'm reading, i shouldn't have to do that...

Thoughts?

Thanks
AJ

*UPDATE*

Hey guys, I decided to rollback my system using Time Machine from 10.13.3 to 10.13.2 seeing as how some people had issues updating to 10.13.3 and their egpu stopped working. I then installed the drivers listed in this forum for that version of MacOS. I attached a monitor to my egpu and that's working fine however it seems to still be rendering graphics through my internal graphics card (Intel Iris). How do I get it to switch to my eGPU?

Thanks
AJ

Mmm... I was braced for the worst after installing the latest version 156 of the Web Driver and the NVIDIAEGPUSupport kext modification. Many reports here of black screens and terrible lag, but to my surprise none of that in my case, albeit a slightly lower score (3573 vs 3647) on the Unigine Heaven benchmark.

My hardware: 2017 15-inch MBP TB RP560; Sonnet eGFX 550 attached to one of the LHS TB3 ports; GTX 1080 Ti; Dell P2415Q. 

So, it's not all gloom and doom, folks.

Hi there! Had the same Problem with the new Driver 387.10.10.10.25.156 for OSX 10.13.3 [17D47] without a chance to go back to OSX 10.13.2. After many Tries following works for me:

Using the (old) Nvidia Driver 378.10.10.10.25.104 for 10.13.2 [17C205] and make it possible to use under OSX 10.13.3 with this Tool: " Nvidia Webdriver All Versions"

download source i found yesterday 

https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/index.php/Thread/34164-Nvidia-Webtreiber-all-Version-update-App-für-High-Sierra/

that is a tool for change the usable System Number of the Nvidia Driver.

--------

This Tool do the following for you:

1. Iinstall the Driver 378.10.10.10.25.104 with it.

2. Patch the installed Driver for OSX 10.13.3 with ID = 17D47

3. Repair the Rights.

------

After that you can use the (old) Nvidia Driver under OS X 10.3.3 without the glitches  from new driver

greetings

If you have time, can you try watching some videos in safari, switching them between windowed and full screen mode?  I didn't notice any performance loss with 3d apps, but web browsing and video playback were problematic.

I am running 10.13.3 on a MacPro 2013 with installed appropriate Nvidia drivers and  nvidia-egpu-v6. The eGPU is detected and "running" but the "output" is very slow as described in posts above. Only the monitor attached to the Nvidia 980ti hybrid is active (24bit color), the two monitors attached to the AMD Fire Pro700 remain black. Rebuilding the caches, restart, logout-login changes nothing.

Booting the MacPro under 10.12.6 and eGPU enabled with goalque's "automate-eGPU" all monitors are working fine with 30bit color and no lags.

Is their any explanation or a solution for this behaviour under 10.13.3?

Otherwise remaining on 10.12.6 for the next future...

nMP with Xeon 2680 V2 (10 Core, 2.8 GHz), 32 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, AMD FirePro 700d, eGPU Akitio Node, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6143 MB

its not that u can't do this

what you he mean, I think, and I can't do as well is to drag between screens!

safari looks awful in internal display

I was asking this on reddit today:

https://www.reddit.com/r/eGPU/comments/7t21do/power_internal_and_external_same_time/

me - IS IT possible to accelerate both screens internal and external by using a headless hdmi dummy plugged in the egpu? (mine is aorus 1080)
i want to accelerate the internal screen using the spetacle app trick and also with the DisplayPort cable connected both on egpu and external screen.
that way I could power and accelerate on both screens with the egpu? Mac 10.13.2

"[–]theitsageAKiTiO Thunder2 + Vega FE 2 points 1 day ago
Which application is this for? When you have an external monitor connected and set as primary, the eGPU will accelerate apps launch through this monitor. You can then move that eGPU-accelerated app over to the internal display to continue using it with eGPU power. There's no need for the HDMI ghost adapter.

[–]SPACECAKEQUEST[S] 1 point 4 hours ago
how can that be if when I drag the windows from the external monitor to the internal the apps go crazy? I'm going to post a video of that!
permalinkembedsaveparenteditdisable inbox repliesdeletereply
[–]SPACECAKEQUEST[S] 1 point an hour ago
I have tried as you said, and also I did set the apps to specific launch on external monitor so I could drag it after it launches.
either way the same thing happns
the apps go crazy into internal screen and just fine outside, launched it or not first into the external screen.

For those who have problems with new Nvidia drivers on 10.13.3, do next:

Open Terminal, run next commands and then reboot:
curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh/master/webdriver.sh
chmod a+x webdriver.sh
sudo ./webdriver.sh -u https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.104.pkg

Updated on 19.02.18. Reason: syntax was changed by the developer.

Hi Thiago,

That makes perfect sense. As soon as I was able to make a second monitor my primary monitor, it works!!! My heaven benchmarks went from 30 fps to 90+ fps... amazing performance gains...

Thank you very much for your help 🙂

Hey guys,

I recently bought a Mantiz Venus with a 1080ti for my MacBook Pro 15inch 2017.

I've always had the problem that when I started my MacBook with the eGPU connected, the login screen was only shown on the internal display and when I logged in the internal display turned black and only the external monitors worked. Additionally I had this weird UI lag that was only fixable by disabling the internal monitor with DisableMonitor (although it wasn't working in the first place).

The last update seemed to fix that as after turning on my machine all the monitors, including the internal, worked just fine and the UI lag was gone. However after I changed my PSU today (because I was using a spare one since the actual PSU broke down and the replacement unit came yesterday) all of the problems returned. Now my question is: does anybody know where those problems come from, how they came back and most importantly how to fix them?

I'm a little desperate since this is really killing my experience with my eGPU and I thought that I finally got it working how it should.

However, thanks in advance!

Hi, reporting issue with MBPr 15 2017 running 10.13.3, TB3 - Akitio Node - GTX 1070 - Cineama 30.

I have 10.13.2 with NvidiaEGPUsupport v4 before and had same black screen issue as my current 10.13.3 with NvidiaEgpuSupport v6. 

Boot time must have TB3 disconnected from EGPU or else it goes black on both displays and was unusable.

Unplug TB3 cable, Boot to High Sierra, login, plug in TB3 egpu and System Information -> Graphics/Displays shows nVidia Chip Card, log out and it started to spin on the external display for a while before it froze to a halt. I had to force a power cycle to recover.

ps. web driver was .105, now upgraded to .156. 

Thanks

https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/index.php/Thread/34164-Nvidia-Webtreiber-all-Version-update-App-für-High-Sierra/

that is a tool for change the usable System Number of the Nvidia Driver.

--------

This Tool do the following for you:

1. Iinstall the Driver 378.10.10.10.25.104 with it.

2. Patch the installed Driver for OSX 10.13.3 with ID = 17D47

3. Repair the Rights.

------

After that you can use the (old) Nvidia Driver under OS X 10.3.3 without the glitches  from new driver

@zaz Thanks for your solution, the WebDriver no longer complains it's incompatible. But what do you mean by "Repair rights"? That app is in some language that I have no idea with.

I confirmed that this is a working solution. Now running 10.13.3 and web driver 378...104. No need to ‘repair rights’, just install enabler v6 and everything will work (for me at least).

Hey guys,

Not only does my system crash when i unplug my eGPU, it'll also do the same thing when my system shuts down... Anybody else have this issue and have been able to resolve it? I think I read somewhere that Apple is implementing support for hot-swappable eGPU's in 10.13.4... I'm hoping maybe this will resolve the issue... Thoughts?

Thanks
AJ

I just  recently got an eGPU with a GTX 1080 and set it up following this post on macOS 10.13.2. I then upgraded to 10.13.3 and all hell broke lose (black screens and completely unable to get output on external monitor plugged into eGPU), so if you can stay on 10.13.2 I would. However, if your like me and have already upgraded, here's how I got my setup to work.

I first uninstalled nvidia-egpu-v4 and the nvidia drivers I had installed. I then reenabled SIP. Next, I installed the nvidia drivers, dissabled SIP, and installed nvidia-egpu-v6. Issue was still there after a completely fresh install. As mentioned above by someone else, I installed the newest CUDA version and that stopped my black screen issue.

In conclusion, I would stay on 10.13.2 if you can and if you can't then do a completely fresh install as I stated above WITH the install of CUDA (I know it can be tedious with all the restarts after each component). I hope this helps someone!

P.S. This was done on a 2017 15" MBP with the Radeon Pro 560
