Aorus Gaming Box - AORUS GRAPHICS ENGINE not working + macbook Pro 15" Late 2016
Thanks to the community, I'm running Aorus Gaming Box on macbook Pro 15" Late 2016 (external display) for quite some time.
But I still can't make AORUS GRAPHICS ENGINE work. It does not launch.
Did anyone had any success making it work?
Hi there i had similar issue . See my various posts especially here https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/script-enable-egpu-on-tb1-2-macs-on-macos-10-13-4/.
I have the rx580 gaming box run with a mbp 13 2015 with purge-wrangler patch and i found out that i can wake up the box with a HDMI connection to an external monitor. Once woken up i add a display port cable which i connect to the same monitor and use it like this ( i prefer the resolution with the dp cable). I also use a plug at the end of the mains cable with an on/off switch. At the end of the day i disconnect the egpu shut down the mbp and switch off the plug. Then next day i switch on the plug turn on the mbp and everything starts fine.
Mac_editor has recommended to use something like this as he has seen this issue before, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XNMJJ6M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, i have ordered it but have not received it yet but the mains single plug with switch i use in the meantime seems to work fine.
I have also ordered this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EK05WTY/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A3J2VUK9571N8X&psc=1, which i intend to use instead of an hdmi cable to replicate the connection so i don't have to carry a whole cable with me and it is also needed to use the egpu with the internal display.
I hope the above helps.
