I would like to know if it is recommended to update from 10.13.2 to 10.13.3 and use the new drive.

I might do something different or fix some problems? or they are pretty much the same but just a version for the other os build?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Id stay on 10.3.2 for now. 10.3.3 doesn't seem to be very reliable yet. I already used time machine to roll back to 10.3.2 because i couldn't get my external monitor to work for the life of me.

how about now? bro? I have similar problem. Pascal, Tb2, Akitio Node 3. Both GPU shown in "Graphics/Displays", but only built-in Intel Iris is in use. Both internal and external monitors use Iris.

this issue is resolved for me with recovery mode "csrutil enable --without kext --without fs"

I don't know that this will help you, but the login-logout trick seems to only be necessary when FileVault is enabled - with FV disabled you can "plug in" at the initial login screen and wait 10-15 secs for it to fire up.

How do I know if the egpu is accelerating both screens?
on internal I can’t use safari for example.

There, I have to drag the window to the external to see it, how do I fix it? some other apps behave that way! or flicks or goes all black!

its possible to accelerate both screens internal and external by using a headless hdmi dummy plugged in the egpu for accelerate the internal scree using the spetacle app trick and also with the DisplayPort cable connected both on egpu and external screen.

that way I could power both screens with the egpu?

10.13.3 and/or the new Web Drivers seem to be a significant step backwards for me.  Safari and chrome feel very choppy, video playback on youtube in particular is really poor now, taking 5-6 seconds to switch 1080p video to full screen or back, with either no output or a slideshow til the browsers catch up.  3d Games seem to be running as well as before (WoW runs fine, Elder Scrolls Online runs poorly).

UI animations other than dragging windows around seem to be much choppier than before and much much choppier than they are running on the RP460 without the egpu, even at 4k.

Tried disabling graphics switching, tried booting with the egpu plugged in (which still has even quirkier behavior but not by much now).

All this is on a 2016 15" MBPro+Razer Core v2+GTX 1080, Hot Plugging/Logout/Login

Update: Checked the hackintosh forums, looks like these are bad drivers from Nvidia, they are complaining about all the same performance issues I have been experiencing.

My setup stopped working after updating to 10.13.3. Before I plug in the GPU at the login screen and everything works. Now when I plug it in, all my screens go black.  I'm using a 2017 4K iMac with Radeon Pro 560. Anyone?

I had no time today for deep testing, so I've just checked my eGPU w/o an external monitor - the card was detected correctly.

But hackintosh users report about issues with new drivers, so the problem might be on Nvidia side.

I've tested and eGPU does still get detected correctly without a monitor. But if I plug it in with the monitor, all monitor will go black.

Ho, interesting, the last beta is almost hot plug... plugged, unplugged did work without logout, display glitches when plugged... and when I plugged again I got a kernel panic... 

Cheers

MBP 2018, Touch Bar, i7 2.6 GHz, 32 GB RAM, 1T SSD, Radeon 560X... very nice!
