Our of curiosity, have any of you guys tried enabling G-Sync if you have a compatible monitor? Does it work without any issues?

Another success story over here - only after the second try. Had to start fresh, reinstall and now it all works

@unknownsolo, FreeSync and G-Sync do not in macOS.

As in will it not work? Or will it just break everything? I see the option available in my nvidia control panel but havn't enabled it. It's no big deal, I'm just curios

I have some issues that I have been trying to fix without success.

MacbookPro 15, mid 2014, gt750m.

1. Enable SIP and install nvidia webdriver 378.10.10.10.15.121 on High-Sierra

2. After reboot, the Nvidia webdriver cannot be enabled (the boot process stops with a spinning wheel under Apple logo) if I keep SIP enabled. It goes through with nvidia enabled if I disable SIP (?)

3. I install NVDAEGPU as indicated (with SIP disabled), and after reboot, I get a black screen, both internal and external (direct connection of screen to miniDP on mac). At that stage, I can control keyboard brightness, etc -- I think I am normally booted up, but without display/window manager working.

 

Anyone has had similar a similar issue?

Thanks!

 

I'm having something similar on my Macbook Pro mid 2012 non-retina GTX 650M + Akitio Thunder 2 + GTX 1050.

- I perform a clean install of high sierra
- Installed latest Nvidia Web Driver (that shows error but continues the install)
- Disable SIP, install NVDAEGPU

But the mac load but the white screen with apple logo get stuck, if I close the lid and open the I can see my desktop window and only can move the mouse cursor but no image refresh.

In a few days I'll try again reinstalling the OS.

My egpu config is Sonnet Breakaway 350, with TB3-TB2 adapted, and a K4200 in it. But I am not even at the point where I can test it, since I have no working display even without it when I install NVDAEGPU. 

@ozzy @Tico @tbl777: did you do anything else than the steps mentioned in the first post to get your set-up to work? In particular, do you get any error with the nvidia web drivers, or do they work flawlessly, even with SIP on?

Thanks!

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I didn't do anything special. I had the nVidia drivers from my previous install, so when I upgraded to High Sierra it automatically prompted me to update them. It gave me an error because I have SIP disabled, but I just clicked continue and they installed fine. Then I switched on the nVidia driver (in the menu item so OS X wasn't selected for video driver), un-installed the automate-egpu.sh script I had installed from 10.12, and then installed the new package and it worked perfectly. I still have SIP disabled FYI
