Initial Windows 10 set-up for eGPU connectivity
Dear eGPU community members,
I am successfully running my eGPU on macOS Mojave since Dec 2018 with flawless operation to this day. Am now ready to take the "plunge" to try running via Windows 10 but am unsure how I should approach this first. Reading too many posts is now getting somewhat confusing with some conflicting information being discussed on this forum.
Question: Per my signature block configuration (nMP / Mac Pro Late 2013), is there a quick reference guide where one should begin, i.e. a common step-by-step approach ? I have the latest Windows 10 running on a standalone external drive via Thunderbolt 2 at this time.
Thanking you in advance for any support.
@slhdsnet Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but eGPU in Boot Camp for the nMP is a no-go. The firmware makes eGPU Thunderbolt connection inoperable in Windows from my testing. There's only one solution netkas/MVC claimed to have a while back.
Given you mention this appears to be firmware related on the nMP, do you believe the upcoming macOS 10.14.4 release might work with the new Boot ROM EFI firmware 188.8.131.52.0 ?
FYI, the current Boot ROM version I am running is 127.0.0.0.0 for the macOS 10.14.3 (18D109) release.
Unfortunately no. There was one firmware several years ago that allowed Thunderbolt eGPU on the nMP in Boot Camp. I run the latest macOS betas as they become available and newer firmware have not improved things for the trashcan.
@itsage OK good, at least I know where to stand on this now and very much appreciated. Also, thank you for the B17 firmware reference link on the netkas forum.
