So I was able to get TB3 up and working. I went and completely uninstalled all drivers then used the Gigabyte file which had an older version of TB in it then that allowed me to update to the newest via Gigabytes folder.

My new problem is how to install drivers. I don't now how. I keep trying and it completely locks up my computer after about 30 seconds of installing.

@mr-awe I believe the Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 controllers in the 2018 Macs require a newer Intel Thunderbolt Software. I have not tried this procedure on newer versions to comment unfortunately. Look for v17 on Intel website and give it a try.

@theitsage, i really appreciate your reply! i never expect that you will stop by here!
unfortunately, when i try with 17 version, system blocks by the weird message.

Capture

it works almost perfect except for a couple of things which really annoys me...
if you happen to catch some time to try, please let me know how to bypass this issue!

thanks again!

Now, im encountered the bigger issue.
Gamingbox does not charge when i play the game. It seems like full-throttled GPU won`t charge a bit.
if i may be able to update the firmware, i would have tested, but still no lucks with all different versions of thunderbolt 3 drivers. SIGH!

I updated my Aorus box firmware using an older 2016 macbook pro 13" that does not have Titan Ridge thunderbolt hardware, my 2018 macbook pro wasn't having it and downgrading the thunderbolt driver was not an option on titan ridge.  I have already discussed with Gigabyte that their firmware updater tool is not compatible with Titan Ridge thunderbolt controllers and they need to update it. Gigabyte was not fun to talk with about that as they did not understand that at all. They kept telling me it's because I am trying to update the firmware using a macbook rather than a windows pc. I had to remind them that they themselves sell newer computers that feature the titan ridge thunderbolt controller and I am sure that those windows PC's are unable to utilize the egpu enclosure firmware update utilities because of that.

I managed to update the firmware on my Aorus Rx580  box on TB2106 15" using the tb software  from dell . If you do not want to mess with  apple_set_os.efi and just want a quick update please remember to set windows in Airplane  mode - because windows knows better and sets up your egpu/blackscreen if it has internet access. I really loooooove it when I am reminded why i switched to apple.

Hi theitsage,

I have the thunderbolt software installed but still cannot pass Hurdle #1.
Any ideas?

The software version is 16.2.55.275

Hey,

I think I have the same problem as @peiran_liu. I have a 2018 15" Macbook Pro with an Aorus RX580 box. Is there any way to actually flash the firmware to improve performance?

Try the latest thunderbolt driver for titan bridge. It works for me.

I tried flashing the eGPU firmware this weekend on an AORUS RTX 2070 Gaming Box [H2D firmware]. In Boot Camp things got easier in that you would only need Intel Thunderbolt Software [17.4.77.400] version. Once installed the FW Update Tool worked without issues. This was done on a 2018 Mac mini running Windows 10 1809.
