Hey Folks, I need help!!

I have made all 4 steps. "About This Mac>System report" see Akitio Node thunderbolt device (speed 20 Gb/s), but din't see external video card (EVGA 1080Ti).

Does anybody know how to solve my problem? Please advise!!

Akitio Node Thunderbolt 3 with adapter TB3>TB2

EVGA 1080Ti, without monitor.

Well, thanks for the hints and help.

For some reason it does not work for me.

I have ordered the Headless HDMI for same day delivered, got home all happy to try it out. I believe I followed all that was posted here.

Thunderbolt shows the eGPU but I can not get MacOS to recognize it as a GPU. Even logging out does not work. For some reason if does not allow me to log out. If I remove the eGPU the computer crashes.

I will check this Forum again in the future to see how are going. And hopefully Apple with support NVIDIA eGPU on their next release of 10.13.

Thanks,

-Jack

If you want to accelerate the laptop screen you need a headless adapter, either hdmi or DisplayPort (dvi probably would work but I haven’t tried).

... and designate "headless adapter" it as the main monitor (this is important).

or connect an external monitor to eGPU.

Thanks!

I connected the monitor to eGpu and it started on this card!
But why is everything so strange on this monitor, everything is buggy and twitching !?

Can you show a photo or video? ... and specify your configuration eGPU.

Hello everybody!

I successfully manage to get my Aorus GTX1070 game box work with my 2012 MacBook pro with High Sierra, with the last Nvidia Web drivers 378.10.10.10.20.107 ,  but I´m facing an annoying problem: all the "system" applications (System preference, Safari, Mail, etc) in the external monitor does not visualize the right click "pop up window" ...

Anyone have the same problem or know how to fix it? 

Thanks

Riccardo

I connected the monitor to an external video card, did the mirroring of the monitors and it worked! 
Thank you all for helping!
Now you will need to buy a “headless adapter.

There are two small problems
1. The computer does not wake up from sleep, I have to reboot it (is there a solution to this problem?)
2. Strong glitches on the monitor connected to an external video card (maybe a“headless adapter” will fix it)

Oleg. 

1.1 If you not use external video card,  "wake up from sleep" normal work or not ?

1.2 Please use external display as "Primary" (not a mirror) and use "wake up from sleep". What result ?

2.1. Can you show a photo or video - "Strong glitches"?

2.2 Can you use other external display and use other HDMI/DVI cable ?

This is the second monitor.

 

2. Yes, I tried different cables and ports, always the same;

About the sleep computer.
It does not wake up even if the eGPU is not connected.
It can only be turned on by re-heating. Probably some kind of failure after installing the drivers ... I do not know.
