Gigabyte RX 580 GAMING BOX failed adventures
I have a MBP 15" 2018 mac OS Mojave.
Bootcamp - no issue (so far).
I picked up the RX 580 Gaming box from Amazon.ca and when I plugged it in, identified as RX 560 instead. I'm away for xmas for 4 days but I already started the return process with Amazon to get a full refund. Now in the mean time RX560 may not be the best but at least i should be able to enjoy R6 on medium, some LoL on high, Borderland, etc.
- No LED light
- Fan not turning
- PD does charge but only if I dont use the eGPU - if i do, it slow drains it out despite stating its charging
I started with my crusade as per other threads:
to update (or roll back) the FW as 1.3 is botched (could be the cause of the above)
- running GPUZ shows me that there is no bios on the video card
- running any given Thunderbolt 3 controller update tells me there are no thunderbolt. Considering that i have a 2018 MBP it was suggested that I would use Titan Ridge - the drivers installs however the Software and Control Center does not want to launch or install because it states there are no Thunderbolt(TM) available - however I see in the Device Manager
I've tried the official software and drivers from Gigabyte also - no available (states that I do not have such thunderbolt)
I've tried uninstall - delete driver, restart from legacy + v17 - no avail.
Now im here. (i still got 4 more days before I'm back to a "normal" pc), but would like this to work out - any suggestions would be appreciated
Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
