Unboxing: Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Puck
Hi, I like to know if the Puck 560/570 will work well with the 8K display Dell UP3218K. I made a thread of it here https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/drive-the-8k-display-dell-up3218k-fed-via-two-dp1-4-using-sonnet-puck-560-570-or-other-solution-thoughts-comments/ . Sonnet's support say it's not supported and not even in warranty however I thought 8K via two DP1.4 cables is a standard usecase? Do you have any thoughts?
@ricardo_figueira I had the Breakaway Puck 560 running well in Windows 10 1803 with the 2018 Mac mini recently. I connected the eGPU prior to boot and it worked that way (Intel iGPU was deactivated by firmware). If you're experiencing error 12, I'd recommend looking into eGPU EFI Boot Manager.

You didn't have to do anything ? You just plug-in (eGPU connected) on you mac before boot start and then on windows was detected ?
Can you explain better this (Intel iGPU was deactivated by firmware) ?
