Boot Camp eGPU Setup Guide - Windows Gaming with Macs
@huy you need to include what work arounds /methods you’ve used and what OS for people to be able to help.
There are also plenty of build guides on here you could read...
So does all of these settings change anything in MacOS? Will it effect the iGPU, dGPU and eGPU in MacOS?
After set up everything (it worked on boot camp), can I turn SIP back on?
I think I have a solution for mb 13 2017 touchbar + core x + radeon card error12
try disable two thunderbolt root devices. the one that is mentioned in the manual, and the other that has wifi connected to it (#12). then shutdown.
Boot with option key, wait until you can see the moue pointer. then plug in core x and boot into windows,
As soon are you're in you should have no error 12. just go back to device manager and re enable back #12 root device back
Does not work, I tried Razer Core X with Air Boost Vega 56 on BootCamp for Internal display, it’s not possible as of now 2019. I used Purge-Wrangler and set-eGPU, installed correctly but AMD Settings could not find internal display so it’s all for nothing... just lagged the computer out and caused slower start up
@Andre Ponomarev You mean- you can’t get it to work, possibly because you are using the wrong solutions. I don’t have any experience with the 2019 MacBook Pro’s but I have a feeling you are trying the wrong solutions. Try looking through the builds section for someone with the same year and size MacBook as yourself and copying them...
I know you've previously said that you don't have any experience w/ 2019 MacBooks. However, I'm trying to use an Nvidia card w/ Bootcamp, does the year of the Mac have any effects on the process? I see guides w/ 2018 Macs, but not a 2019 🙁
I will be getting a Razer Core X, but it doesn't have a return policy so I just wanted to check up on that.
Hi, what size MacBook do you have? At a guess, based on other people’s experiences with new MacBooks I’d say you’ll be fine, Nvidia cards tend to be easier to set up. If you have any problems I’m sure folks can walk you through how to get up and running.
@eightarmedpet Actually, the guide you linked to doesn’t attempt to keep iGPU active haha. Trying to do so on the 2018 15” causes glitches and issues. Only thing needed is eGPU hotplug (or a little trick to allow boot with eGPU + functional internal monitor). 2019 MBP might show similar behavior.
@mac_editor whoops! My mistake... cheers for catching that! I'll edit that bit out since I was bloody wrong!
When you say hot plug, does that mean that I simply need to plug in the GPU while I'm loaded on Windows and then it'll use the GPU? I'm a bit confused about how to feed it back through to the screen, do I need to download some software to allow this to happen? Also, are there any guides out there on how to set up the eGPU on BootCamp for my 2019?
@Aaron , pls work through @OliverB's guide:
This description works perfect and is easy to follow. I got a macbook pro 16 with the AMD 460 gpu. The guide works fine and i was able to install my egpu. I use an AMD Vega RX 64. I would refresch the link under step 4. The AMD link connects to the official AMD Support and Driver Website. I downlaoded the software there and it didt'n work. So i changed to bootcampdrivers.com and dowloaded the software from this page and i worked with the Vega 64. I also didn't have to disconnect the PCle 16. The egpu was recognized and the yellow band Syndrom wasnt shown in the device manager.
I have the same configuration, can u activate your egpu in bootcamp?
