Need help to make the bundle work - Blackmagic eGPU + Gigabyte GA-X170-WS ECC

I have:

1. Blackmagic eGPU

2. Motherboard Gigabyte GA-X170-WS ECC with Thunderbolt 3 port

3. Windows 10 Version 21H2 (OS build 19044)

4. Latest Thunderbolt control center

5. Latest AMD drivers for Enterprise

 

Thunderbolt control center sees eGPU RX 580. AMD drivers are installed with an error. The device manager displays RX 580 with "error 12".

How to make everything work?

@junonexus, Look into the Thunderbolt settings in BIOS. Increasing the Memory Allocation per port (MB) may help Windows resolve error 12 with the eGPU.

Pls check some BIOS settings that may match https://egpu.io/forums/builds/egpu-history-breaking-the-25-gpu-clusters-record-365-gigahashes-per-second/#post-16491

@junonexus, PMemory is Prefetch Memory I believe. Change that to 512MB if it's an option. Also change Reserved Memory to a higher number if the Reserved PMemory change doesn't resolve error 12.

I decided to sell this device (blackmagic egpu). I don't see any point. it's just a usb hub that doesn't work normally. thanks to intel apple and blackmagic for the most senseless invention in the history of mankind.
