I got mine working on an external screen with a 650m, but there were drawbacks to using it mentioned by others in this thread so after a couple weeks I reverted back. I never actually benchmarked internal screen but I believe it was running it as well.

FINALLY I solved my issue. Turns out it's my POS Samsung 4k monitor. This same monitor I had issues with for months (random computer freezes/crashes on wakeup) which led to me buying a eGPU because I thought "the monitor is a dumb sink and I can connect other stuff to it fine, it couldn't possibly be broken, the problem must be with the iGPU". 

Well guess what? It was the monitor. Plugging my eGPU into another display worked fine.

Lesson learned: don't buy samsung stuff.

hello, i use a samsung display too, and it works perfectly without the egpu plug in.

however when i attach my samsung display to the egpu it goes "Backlight with no actual output" as you mentioned before. I don't have another display to test with while my mac recognise my egpu. Is it possible that this egpu method is not working with samsung screen huh?

How did you revert it to Sierra?

I keep a time machine drive just incase. I just reinstalled the OS from that.

Is it possible to run the egpu with SIP enabled? Preference would be to have it on.

Did you mirror the headless display on the internal screen? Use the disable monitor program to set the resolution the same on both and then hold option (I think, might be command) and drag the two screen on top of each other in the arrangements tab of display section of system settings

I can't mirroring display cause system didn't see external graphic adapter and do not show mirroring check box. System recognize Akitio Node but didn't see 1080Ti  🙁

Configuration: Akitio Node TB3, TB3>TB2 adapter, Late 2013 MacBook Pro, High Sierra 10.13.1 (17B48), WebDriver-378.10.10.10.20.107
