 I can't get it to work 🙁

I'm not sure if it's an issue with this script or something else. When loading eGPU I just get an endless spinning loading screen.

?dl=0

I have a 2016 Macbook Pro 13" (Two thunderbolt 3 ports) + Akito Node Lite (120W Power) + GTX 1050ti + LG 3440×1440

I'm running macOS 10.13 (17A405) with the corresponding Nvidia Web Driver and NVIDIAEGPUSupport v1

I followed the recommended install instructions to no avail.

?dl=0

Plugging in the card while logged in shows "NVIDIA Chip Model", and no response from the external display.

Logging out results in the same loading issue described above.

?dl=0

I know these issues often don't have a simple solution, but any help would be appreciated.

The method I used to get it working, even with the AKiTiO Thudner3 that needs a hack to work, maybe it help...

– Installed macOS update
– Disabled SIP
– Patched IOThunderbolt  AKiTiO Thunder3 needs it (Btw, TB3 enabler is script is up to date on github!)
– Enabled SIP
– NVidia notified me about the latest driver update, so installed (or install it if you don’t have it)
– Enabled SIP without kext…
– Install NVIDIAEGPUSupport V2.
– Restarted, plugged the AKiTio Thunder3, logged out and in…
– Done

Es: I did this with the latest macOS 10.13.1

Oh that could be, for example i have a mantiz venus with the stock PSU 550W, and so far i have had 3 power off issues, when playing The Witcher 3 at 3440x1440 Ultra settings.

Yeah well, supposedly the 1050ti requires just 75w for it self, so 100w should be enough I think.  The 1080 ti as far as I know requires around 250w? That's very strange that your 550W PSU didn't hold well with it. Maybe it wasn't voltage but overheat? In my case the 1050ti works well on windows, stable fps, and stable everything; not as fast as if I where using it on a motherboard (tested), but I guess that's normal because this is Thunderbolt 3 to PCI-e, and this is out of topic haha. Let's see how the RX 560 behaves, it's supposed to require 80w.  

Yeah, it should have more than enough power, but what happens is that sometimes there are peaks reaching almost 400W (I have it overclocked to 2025Mhz core, and 6000Mhz memory with a custom fan profile), so 400w plus 87W for my Macbook plus some USB devices connected (xbox wireless adapter, USB 2.0 2mpx webcam) it kinda makes sense that it could be asking for more power that the PSU inside the Mantiz Venus is not capable to provide.

ISSUE 1:

The V2 version on 10.13.1 makes screen brightness adjustment disable and automate adjustment nonfunctional.

ISSUE 2:

The automate gpu switch is disabled and set Nvidia-GPU as default.

ISSUE 3:

After a little long cover sleep, it can not be awaked from sleeping.

Thanks making this possible Grin

 

MacBook Pro mid 2017 15" with Akitio Node and Nvidia 1060 6GB. Brightness still works for me on the internal screen.

 

Using the little tool "DisableMonitor" works for me to turn off the internal screen and just use the external

I'm using the left thunderbolt closest to me.

Is your awake function normal? Just cover your screen, wait several minutes and open you laptop, does you get black screen?

You mean putting it to sleep and then wake it after some time? Or just when both screens are on and just close the lid, and see what happens?

Just put your macbook with this script installed into sleep normally, and wait for one or two minutes, then see if it can awake from sleeping.

I am very grateful to yifanlu.
Even in High Sierra, eGPU works well like Sierra.

However, MBP's internal display has the following problems.

  • QuickLook is not displayed
  • Apps in Launchpad folder are not displayed
  • Videos are displayed in black in Chrome
    (Chrome will be improved by disabling GPU acceleration.)

There is no problem with the external display connected to eGPU.

Is this caused by the Nvidia driver


MBPr 15 "(Mid,2012) dGPU: GT 650 M,
and BizonBOX 2S (= AKiTiO Thunder 2) eGPU: GTX TITAN X.

MacOS: 10.13.1
Nvidia web driver: 378.10.10.10.20.107
NVIDIA Executive Support: v2 - 1013 - 1
