zaz's method no longer works on 17D102. After I choose NVIDIA WebDriver in System Prefs and reboot, it always reverts back to Default macOS Driver despite the drivers are patched. I'm restoring to 17D47 now. Had anyone succeeded on 17D102?

Hi i0ntempest,

Yep I have 17D102 working on MBP 15" 2017 R560 with a Aorus 1070. 

I run Benjamin-Dobel script ( https://github.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update) and installed devild's v7 updated package - without kext enabled. 

Good luck.

EDIT: Note - Final Cut Pro does not launch.

I'm running 17D102 with setup as my signature.
And FCPx 10.4 313772 build do launch and runs. Tested by opening BruceX Test - 5K, playing and exporting it without any problem.

Thanks very much Username for checking that, now just to work out why mine isn't launching!

EDIT: How do I find build number of FCP?

Thx @iculikemac, Ima try that later. Are you still using the 378 drivers on 17D102?

  1. Remove/undo any Info.plist modifications (they aren’t needed anymore and might conflict).

Hey would anyone have any tips on how to clean out this plist file, and also uninstall goalique and nvidia drivers? I seem to be having major issues with performance - clicks and scrolls take forever to register and was thinking maybe I should try this using a clean install.

Simply as this: osx does not recognize the external GPU.

1) I downloaded Nvidia Web Drivers .156 from link with SIP enabled
2) Reboot and recovery mode in order to disable kext (only them, other SIP enabled)
3) Installed nvidia-egpu-v6.zip and rebooted (since I have macOS 10.13.3 17D47)
4) plugged external screen on GPU, logged out, logged in, plugged-in Thunderbolt 3 (detection sound here + power up of the eGPU).
5) No eGPU detectedCrashed when logging out or in

Here my system:
- MacBook Pro 2017 Touch Bar
- macOS 10.13.3 (17D47)
- Akitio Node Lite enclosure
- 120 W power supply
- EVGA GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
- Generic Philips FullHD external monitor through HDMI

what I have to expect ? A pop-up notification with "eGPU card find" ?
Suggestions ?

Update 1: I updated the firmware under Windows and now OSX does not crash when logging in/out, however OSX still does not detect the eGPU.

Hi everyone and really thanks for all of you knowledge and hard work.
I'm trying to get my iMac 27" Late 2013 to work with an Akitio Thunder 2 + NVIDIA GTX 1060 6 GB GIGABYTE version, without Display but with Ghost HDMI display.

Now, i did only this Yifanlu (really thanks) instruction: 

This is only needed for High Sierra and should enable NVIDIA Web drivers to work with your eGPU enclosure. No plist modifications needed. Installation is simple:

  1. Remove/undo any Info.plist modifications (they aren’t needed anymore and might conflict).
  2. Install NVIDIA Web drivers if you haven’t done so. This must be done with SIP enabled! Can use this script for Nvidia web drivers installation – https://github.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh
  3. Disable SIP (or just enable unsigned drivers with csrutil enable --without kext)
  4. Install the package linked above

and no problem with that; my system recognize something but not the entire model card, i post here some screen to let u know.
I really don't know where is the problem, maybe my build with Akitio TB 2 + GTX 1060 6 GB + ATX with 6PIN PCI not working? Maybe i need to do other thing first?
When i boot system, the Gcard just run for 2 sec the fan, but after the boot all seems like dead 😐  







Anyone could help me?
Thanks in advance

I just wanted to post a quick note with some workarounds I needed to do for 10.3.3 on my MBP 2012 Retina with 650m. I think these may have been posted a while back, but I was travelling for a while and finally got around to installing 10.3.3 and it took me quite a while to make the eGPU work. The main problem was that (as many people have reported), the latest nVidia drivers (156 or 158) were completely broken for me - very laggy, weird artifacts on screen, Heaven benchmark running at 4 FPS, etc. And when I used a script to install either the 104 or 106 nVidia drivers, my computer would no longer startup. The eventual solution I worked out is that I had to completely disable SIP. Running 'csrutil enable --without kext' no longer was enough. I had to reboot into recovery mode and turn it off by doing 'csrutil disable'. Once I did that, it can now run properly again using the 106 drivers, the eGPU extension v7, and 10.3.3.

Hope this helps save someone else some pain!

@dev4s That's pretty common - to get it working, try disconnecting the thunderbolt cable, then boot the computer and log in. Once it's logged in, connect the thunderbolt cable. You should see the same "chip model" detected. Log out, and your external display should come on. Then log back in, and it should be working.

I am going crazy...

I updated from macOS 10.13.3 17D47 to 17D102... I uninstalled .156 Webdriver and NVIDIAEGPUSupport v.6.

I reinstalled Web Driver .158 and NVIDIAEGPUSupport v.7.

macOS  detects the Node Lite but not any graphic card....! 

I tried with a second HDMI cable connected to the external screen...nothing!! 

I don't understand how some people can run a successful set-up on 10.13.3 , my MacBook Pro Touch 2017 is just new and not . I am doubting of power supply on my 1050 Ti or of Thunderbolt 3 cable...!

Any suggestions ?

@psonice Thanks for your reply;
i tried your tip but my system recognizes  only Nvidia Chip, not the correct egpu instead.
Maybe that happens because i don’t have a real display connected but only a ghost display?

I used the .158 web drivers and NVIDIAEGPUSupport v.7 but it did't work.
Finally with the workaround of .104 drivers , the webdrivers.sh script and NVIDIAEGPUSupport v.7 I succeed to have my GTX 1050 working.

I will retry with a "clean" situation with the .158 drivers and v.7 again

I used the script to downgrade as well. That due to the fact that the later versions of Nvidias drivers caused massive memory leaks which ended my system first lagging and in the end always crashing. 

The 104 runs perfect on my 10.13.3.

All set to embark on this journey with an iMac Pro, Node Pro and a 1080Ti only to discover my OS version is newer than any of the pkg options (2104 instead of 2102). Any idea how to downgrade my OS build version or when an updated pkg might appear?

Many thanks!

I force installed the drivers for 2102 but no luck. Flies under Windows 10 though. Opening scenes on Heaven in the 180s at 1440. But I really want this working in macos.

Any ideas? Wait for webdriver to see an update I suppose...

I used webdriver to downgrade to .104 even though it's many versions before my OS version and now it works. Not as fast as Windows 10, but getting close.

Anyone was able to get CUDA to work with 10.13.3 and rolled-back drivers to .106?

Looks like the latest web driver WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.158 causes High Sierra 10.13.3 to hang on boot. My iMac is configured with the 755M, and I haven't even tried plugging my 980ti via thunderbolt yet as I can't get past bootup with the web driver installed. (yes I made sure SIP was enabled)

Any ideas?

Tried web driver script with 104 on my late 2013 model iMac
rebooted and disabled SIP
Then installed eGPUs v7.
I now have the 104 web driver successfully loading, however my 980ti card is not being detected. 
I have the Akita thunderbolt 3 connected to my iMac using a thunderbolt 3 to minidisplayport adapter cable. The Akita should support thunderbolt 2 connections.

Any thoughts?

@yifanlu Thanks for all the info in the first post. I'm running macOS 10.13.3 (17D102) on a Mid 2015 MacBook Pro, so I installed the NVIDIA driver (387.10.10.10.25.158.pkg). My intention is to use a 1080ti in an Akitio Node Pro with a Thunderbolt 3 > 2 adapter (I wanted to get the Thunderbolt 3 Node Pro, to future proof me for when I upgrade my laptop later this year).

I followed the rest of the installation and everything seemed to work fine, I think. Looking in System Information, the 1080 seems to be showing, but it is named as 'NVIDIA Chip Model', so I'm not sure if that is correct.

Further to that, the reason for this setup is so I can run Redshift renderer for Cinema 4D and this requires as many CUDA cores as you can give it. When I launched C4D, Redshift wasn't showing, so I installed the latest CUDA driver (387.128). Looking back at @goalque 's posts, CUDA should work. Redshift did show up in C4D after doing this.

Unfortunately for me, after installing the CUDA driver, the 1080ti card now doesn't show up at all in System Information and I get a message from the CUDA driver saying that there is 'No GPU Detected'.

Uninstalling the CUDA driver means I can see the card again, but without access to the CUDA cores I can't use it!

Any help or suggestions would be extremely appreciated.

Ok, I followed all the steps and so far everything seems fine and working. I can see my graphics card recognized in system profiler. But the only problem is that am trying to power my internal display with my eGPU. What to do my internal display to run on external graphics Card. Specifications are Late 2017 MBP 13-inch, two thunderbolt 3 and Aorus 1080 gaming box.

Nvidia released drivers *.161 and *.160, seem to increase performance compared to .158 while using MacOS and applications, but still feels a little sluggish compared to *.104. Also (at least with my setup), booting up with the eGPU attached still causes major slowdowns as soon as MacOS starts trying to use the eGPU (internal screen goes blank and everything becomes extremely slow).

Where do you find the latest drivers?  I have been searching and can't find them on my own, only through direct links that others share.  Thanks.

So I'm currently having the issue of a blank desktop screen after downloading the driver from an automated script. At this point the only thing I can think of doing is uninstalling the drivers from recovery mode using the terminal but I don't know how to. I've been here all day trying to figure out how to get my NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti to work on my 2017 MacBook Pro 15" Can someone please steer me in the right direction here I'm lost and lonely and need help. Thank You!

Did any of you guys had success enabling egpu with 10.13.4 Beta (17E170c) yet?

It automatically updated last night and thought to give a shot on this with latest 15' MBP2017.

Already tried with webdriver.sh on .158 and .161 with egpu.v7 but it keeps crashing at the moment I plug the sonnet 550 with Titan XP.
Haven't tested by patching cuda to be compatible with the above.

It only starts when having egpu.v6 and .156 installed but still not recognising the egpu.
Hot plug/unplug works though but...

Anyone?

Anyone can help me with a list of terminal commands to uninstall the drivers? After crashing last night my iMac can't even make it to the Log In screen. Thank You!

Hey John, How did you get past the boot when you were dealing with that issue, I'm kind of lost when it comes to having to reboot or enter my terminal to give the computer commands.

General note on the new (387.10.10.10.25.161) drivers: 

I haven't seen any lag or issues so far, and it's given me a ~17% increase in raw compute performance. This, if you're doing anything heavily compute bound, is a big win. 

System: 2014 27" iMac, macOS 10.13.3, 1080TI + Sonnet eGPU 550 over TB2.
