Hi Everyone,

I had purchased a Akitio Node and GTX1080, and it is work with my Intel NUC Skull Canyon, unfortunately I have no idea how it can work with my Macbook Pro Retina. I already read many topic / implementation and follow the guide step by step, but finally my Bootcamp Windows 10 can't recognize my egpu. (even rEFInd)

I really confuse because some topic said 750m MBPR is not working with TB3->TB2 node.

It's possible for 750m MBPR using egpu with TB3 Node? or any other solution??

Many Thanks!

@mac_editor found Nvidia eGPU detection was near on impossible on this system with a TB3 enclosure but an AMD eGPU worked fine:

The only breakthrough being a recent posting by @Chris Pce explaining the detection method needed for a NVidia eGPU with this system & eGPU hardware configuration at:
