Hi Everyone!

I will be going through my trials and errors trying to get the eGPU set up with Windows 10 via Bootcamp.

My setup:

  • 2016 15″ Macbook Pro Radeon Pro 460
    • OS X 10.13.2
    • Windows 10 Pro Bootcamp (in progress getting to work)
  • Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 550
  • 27″ LG 4K 27UD68-P Monitor

What works:

  • eGPU out of the box in Mac OS X 10.13.2
    • Still shows as “AMD R9 xxx”
    • Prompts me to log out to use eGPU, otherwise works perfectly
  • eGPU with Monitor

What doesn’t (yet):

  • Getting setup working in Windows 10 Pro

Mining on OS X:

  • Mining currently works in OS X, using a fork of EthMiner.
  • I’m getting about 16.3 Mh/s (mining only on eGPU in OS X) mining Ethereum mining under ethermine.org pool
  • Total power consumption (includes power consumption of MacBook Pro) of ~204W according to a TP-Link smart outlet I bought.

Mining on Windows 10:

  • Work in progress to get eGPU recognized
