Make sure you use Disable Monitor app to set resolution of the headless adapter and the internal screen the same. In System Preferences > Display > Arrangement hold option and drag the two windows on top of each other. This will mirror them and accelerate the laptop screen with the eGPU.

Hi guys. I've just installed nvidia-egpu-v4.zip on High Sierra 10.13.2. just wanted to say thanks. It was a big pain without eGPU. I won't upgrade my macOS anymore.

eGPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti

Hi,

I'm unable to get my Macbook Pro to work with the GTX 1050ti card. 

Result: I only get the card listed as "Nvidia Chip Model" in System Information and when I log out I get a blank screen. If I remove the cable there's a hard crash. I've tried with the graphics card connected to a monitor (displayport to cinema display) and without external display connected.

I've tried all the steps from the first post. I don't know how to "remove/undo any Info.plist modifications" though.

Any ideas? Thank you.

System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Untick "Automatic Graphics Switching" 

Macbook Pro 2015 15' AMD M370X, OSX 10.13.6, Akitio Node with Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB

In that same arrangement page, drag the white menu bar at the top to the headless monitor first then do the option drag the monitor on top of the other to mirror them.

The most successful method for me is to boot the computer with the eGPU unplugged. When you reach the login screen plug it in and wait. The screen should freeze up, or give you a spinning icon, or go black and come back, usually takes about 5-10 seconds. Then the external monitor comes on as well, then log in.

 

logging out sometimes locks up the computer for me so rebooting and pluggin in at the login screen is the most reliable method for me.

Hi,

I have a macbook pro 2016 15" touch with a Radeon 460 and an AORUS gambol GTX1070 . I followed all the steps but the external display a Samsung UHD 24" remain black and the eGPU silent...

Any tips? 

Thanks

Have you tried leaving the eGPU unplugged until reaching the login screen, and then plugging 

Yes, I tried everything.

Now the Aourus led and fan starts and the laptop is receiving power but there are no signs of the GPU being recognized

Any ideas? Thanks

Double check that you followed all the steps in the first post correctly. Make sure sip is enabled, install Nvidia drivers, disable sip, install eGPU enabler, plug in eGPU at login screen and wait about 10 seconds. Screen should go black or freeze up or something and then come back and the external monitor should come on. Then login.

Check system profiler and report what is listed under graphics and thunderbolt.
