Help: Mac mini 2020/ Catalina and MBP 2014/ Mojave do not recognize AMD Radeon Frontier on Razer Core V1
I am new into GPU. I have:
Mac mini 2020/ Catalina
MBP 2014/ Mojave
I ran the script on both and now they can see the Razer Core V1 BUT that is it, they can not see the video card.
@vj_rei, Check PCI section of system report - it should show presence of GPU/controller. If not, then reassemble eGPU. Also, Core V1 may be insufficient to power Radeon Frontier (but that should be under full load). Ensure power cables are plugged in appropriately (you can share an image to verify). eGPU should work natively on Mac mini 2020 after patching for Core V1, so first target on getting that to work. I would start by reinstalling macOS on top of existing install (no data loss).
You nail it. It was a connector inside that was not full in, it occurred to me to check on that and vuala. Everything works fine on the Mac Mini and the MBP. Right now I am doing benchmarks. Thank you very much. (y)
@mac_editor, But I have another problem.
When connecting to the Mac mini everything just fine.
When connecting to the MBP (mid 2014) the external monitor does not work, not connected to the GPU neither connected to the MBP directly. When I connect the external monitor, the home screen goes to the external monitor, but the external monitor backlight is black. It is on, but is black. The MBP screen just keeps the background color. I can move the cursor from the external monitor (blindly) to the MBP screen.
Weird. I checked the cables, plugged the monitor to different outputs of the GPU and nothing. Restart... nothing. Like if I need to install the driver again or something.
I did the Purge-Nvidia and I was able to run the GPU with the external monitor just fine. I shut down the computer, unplug everything. Power up the computer and the display is fully bright and the brightness buttons do not work.
I had to unmount purge Nvidia to gain control again.
Is there another way where I can have control over my machine without killing the functions and having to run scripts all the time if I want to use the external gpu again?
