How does it work with your MacBook Pro on macOS 10.14.6?

Hi I am a new user to this site and wanted to contribute to this topic.

I live in Iceland and ordered both of these devices for my Macbook Pro 15 (2018) and LG 5k monitor.  There was a bit of a hiccup as I first ordered the 5700XT and the Razer Core X instead of the Chroma, however I received the Chroma today and went to work on setting this up.  Prior to this post I could not get this to work.  Then I thought I would give it a shot and try the link that @elgalo87 posted.  I also connected my TV to the HDMI on the back of the Razor device as my 5k monitor connects via thunderbolt to my mac and didnt want to test with that right out of the box.

I was able to get this to work in Windows Bootcamp by following the instructions in the folder.  It takes about 30-45 minutes but I was able to get it to work on the TV.  Now I will try and get this to work on the 5k.

Thanks for this post it did help me in my setup.

I am not sure if it will work.  While I had the e-gpu and card that you had I could not get it to work.  I did not however try the method @elgalo87 mentioned earlier.  If you have the devices I suggest trying it out to see if that solves your issue.  If not then I suggest using the Razer Core X Chroma.  

Regarding your monitor, if you have a display port or hdmi connection on your monitor it will work.
Using the e-gpu on Bootcamp without a monitor works for me if I use the AMD software, where i have to try and set the games or apps to use the 5700xt graphics card.  Some work fine others are stuck at 555x (macbook graphics) and I am still wrestling with those games and apps to switch to 5700xt

Try the method I’d mention above, but before make sure you update windows (bootcamp)
and I would use it with an external monitor for sure. Good luck 😉
