@jared_busch apologies, I seemed to have lost this thread and never responded back!

Okay, so in your case, before any eGPU-related software modifications, your setup was working fine. There are two major changes in your system after applying eGPU patches (please correct me if wrong):

  • NVIDIA Web Drivers Kexts
  • NVIDIAEGPUSupport Kext

In your testing, does removing both result in increased performance? If so, we have narrowed down the problem to eGPU setup, otherwise some external factor not mentioned / accounted for is affecting you.

The new FCP 10.4.1 and compressor et al will be released in a few days. 

ProRes RAW and some other things are mentioned. 
GPU accelerated rendering and export they say.

Wonder if they have fixed the eGPU mess they gave us. Smile

I suppose it is a bug since this comes from App Store page, lets hope.

ps: FCPX 10.3.4 is not working for me since a while, Black window. But works if I unplug eGPU.

• Final Cut Pro uses all Mac GPU for superior performance real – time playback and fast rendering in the background.

Hey, I was having a nightmare trying to use 10.3.4 with HS and my Vega 64, it would crash and burn with the eGPU installed. I came across another post on a forum where someone mentioned installing ResXtreme. Run the program, choose your resolution hbut at 8 bit) and bob is your mothers brother!!! No issues at all 👍🏻👍🏻 Not holding my breath for 10.4.2 fixing the eGPU not rendering anytime soon 🙁

what is you config? external monitor attached to eGPU? I still have a crash if hot-plug egpu in FCPX but if I log-off and log-in FCPX 10.3.4 works great without crash. I think they have to fix something else in 10.13.4 for hot-plug

Have you tried ResXtreme and switching to 8 bit? It solved the crashes with 10.3.4, no hotplugging required,  it works like a DREAM now Smile

I've a 2016 touchbar 13" running 10.13.4 > Sonnet TB3 with a Vega 64 connected all the time. External monitor is connected to the eGPU. Renders that took 20-30 minutes using the poor intel integrated now take 2-3 minutes using the eGPU  😯

Thanks no ResXtreme need it. Just log-off/log-on if hotplug eGPU or boot system with eGPU attached.
