@Barni: I have exactly the same part for eGPU but tried to get them to work on 2016 MBP which did not go that well. Now I am thinking should I get a 2012 Mac Mini or build a skylake hackintosh to hopefully get the benefits of quick sync as well.

My main purpose for the eGPU is also to be able to edit GH4 files in 4k and with GTX970 it went pretty smoothly when I made 3840x1600 2.40:1 project, imported 4k GH4 files as Prores422, used couple of quite heavy LUT's, graded a little and exported the project. The GTX970 was quicker on transcoding while editing but on exporting the project it was really slow compared to intel quick sync. Will definitely have to test more and find out how much and where eGPU helps on FCPX.

2016 13" MacBook Pro [6th,2C,U] + GTX 980 Ti @ 32Gbps-TB3 (AKiTiO Thunder3) + macOS 10.12 [build link]

Any thoughts on what to change with the Mac Pro 2013 with dual D700's.  It would be amazing if I could get this fixed!  I have good luck with a MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 and FCPX.  But my Mac Pro crashes FCPX every time with eGPU.  I don't have any HDMI plugged into the Titan Z.  I have tried to use the HDMI and I have also tried a 980ti (instead of the Titan Z).  Also completely deleted the OS and started from scratch with no luck. 

I assume there must be something that I can change in terminal just have no idea what to change.

Sorry nickmilitello... I only own a Mac mini 2012 and heard about the incompatibility between Intel HD and ADM Graphics and removing the HD driver files did the job for me...

@goalque Thanks for the links.  I tried to plug in an HDMI into the Titan Z and launch FCPX with no luck.    I will try to do a 980ti with HDMI plugged into a monitor to see if that works.  Though I do remember trying the 980ti and FCPX 10.3.2 and it still crashed though I didn't have a monitor plugged into the 980ti.  Wasn't sure how to proceed with the first link you sent though.

Using a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter to my 40" 4k monitor coming straight out of the Titan Z allowed FCPX to actually work.  For some reason it seems when a monitor is plugged directly into the Mac Pro and there is an eGPU attached, FCPX crashed constantly.  Having the monitor plugged into the eGPU  seemed to have corrected the problem.

I have this problem with and RX 460 on the MBP 13" 2016 TB and Sierra. FCPX always crushes. I did not have this problem with the Titan X. Has anyone tested the high sierra with FCPX ?

I've been getting some issues with FCPX too (on Sierra using 980Ti). Everything worked fine a week ago, but I have been trying to get a 3 x eGPU setup working with the nMP, so I must have broken something and need to revert back to a backup. I'll come back if I have anything further to add.

Same issue happening for me with High Sierra PB6 and AMD RX 570 with Razer Core.

 

Unsure what methods to fix.
