Good Day everyone,

with 10.4.6 you could select EGPU for every FCPX's task. You could do as following:

finder-->applications-->right-click onto Final Cut-->more info-->select external GPU flag

As per 10.4.7 update, that option disappeared. You can only select EGPU within FCPX preferences which allows it to handle offline processes (renders). It does no work on playback & effects

As you can see this is a very annoying problem within the Apple community -> https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250714680?page=16

and I haven't found a solution here in this forum.

Has anyone a workaround for that? Perhaps disabling via SHELL the internal GPU?
