Upgraded to High Sierra on my MBP 13" Early 2015, using this approach works just fine!

Also seems to allow me to close the MBP lid without putting macOS to sleep. Pretty sure it wasn't possible in Sierra.

However, the need to plugin TB line at the right timing still exists. Guess it's a hardware thing.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) with Akitio Node TB3 with Apple USB-C/TB3 to TB2 adapter and Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme GeForce 1080 Ti Waterforce working great. Going to test a multi-eGPU setup soon(ish).

Good stuff! I have 2 x eGPUs (modified Akitio Thunder2) working on the nMP, so you should have no trouble with multi-eGPU. I just wish we could do more than 2!

Need to see pics of that double GPU Mac Pro...

I second that

I posted in this a while back and these are my custom builds.

MBP 2016 15”+ game box 1070, a Samsung  external display using dp

The setup doesn’t work. macOS can identify the card successfully but the external display is black

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

Hi!

Just wanted to confirm that this is working on my MacBook Pro 13" mid 2016 with touch bar, macOS High Sierra 10.13 (17A405), AKiTio Thunder3, NVidia GTX 1050ti 4GB, and Samsung 4K via Display Port. 

Thank a lot!

Just gave it another go, hoping other peoples solutions for secondary screens not coming on properly would work and no luck... even worse than last time actually. Had it working once, internal only, mirroring didn't do the tricked. tried logging out and back in, ended up with black screens on both... le sigh. No idea why its such ha pain for me. 2017 i3 inch, Samsung 4K TV, Display port, Breakaway box and 1070...

For you it should be easy to get it to work. 13" MBP only use the iGPU while 15" have the dGPU too making it more complicated. Anyway, we need to wait for a fix.

That’s weird. In all macOS High Sierra versions I have been able to apply the patch for enabling thunderbolt (to make AKiTio Thunder3 to wok), and then use my Radeon RX 480 “with an external power supply of course”. But now after all this time, I decided to try again with the NVidia 1050ti, using this patch, and after following the steps on the first post, it worked perfectly. So now I have the card in the enclosure (doesn’t need external power supply), so it looks nicer.

Yeah tell me about it... my set up has been easier for the things that are meant to be awkward and harder for the things that are meant to be easy, its a bloody pain.

Have a fake screen adapter in the post, lets see if that gets things working on my internal/LG 5K.

I'm very jealous... great work patching the thunder 3 too... any pics of your set up anywhere? I sold mine in the end as felt it made things run too hot and loud.

I have a 2017 15" MBP with Radeon 560 + Mantiz Venus + EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 + LG 34UC98-W and it only works with Windows 10, with sierra it used to work nice but sometimes i got artifacts and i had to reboot. I'm about to give up and just get VEGA RX 64.
