Pillars of Eternity...

Pillars of Eternity on RX580 / mbp 15” abismal FPS (< 5)  

New Member

After installing my new gpu enclosure with a RX580, I’ve tried Pillars of Eternity, the game I had installed. To my dismay I’ve only got < 5 fps, an absolute disaster of performance.

What can I look about this performance, what can I do? That’s this particular game which is at fault or its something wrong?

My setup:

MacBook Pro 15-inch Late 2016
2,7 GHz Intel Core i7
16GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Razer Core X
Radeon RX580 8192MB

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

This could be a simple one... maybe...

Assume you’re using an external monitor?
Have you set game to prefer egpu?
Are you sure the 580 is being used (checked activity monitor)?
Did you run purge wrangler script to unlock tb2 support?
