Hello everyone, its been a long time I am not attached with eGPU. Forum is changed a lot compare to last time when I have checked. Awesome!

Just a question, do we still need external display to work with macOS (latest OS or beta of Mojave, 2017 13" MacBook Pro) with eGPU?

Many thanks everyone,
Atiq

@alone1i Mojave 10.14 has a new feature that allows internal display acceleration by the eGPU. You can open the Information panel of the individual application and check the box “Prefer External GPU”. Keep in mind this checkbox is only available when macOS detects an active eGPU.

As I experienced it depends on the application. For example, FCPX can use eGPU if monitor is attached to it but Davinci Resolve can use eGPU in different configurations (monitor attached to eGPU/iGPU/dGPU).
