NUC NUC6i7KYK + linux + eGPU(Akitio w/ Nvidia)
I have a NUC6i7KYK NUC that has TB3 and an integrate intel gpu, Akitio Node Pro, and Nvidia 1080ti FE.
I would like to see if anyone has had any luck / experience with using a setup similar to this with linux. I'm specifically trying use the eGPU as a cuda processor for my video editing and I want to use the integrated intel gpu to run the display. Hopefully this will make the xorg configuration easier because I plan to use the NUC with and without the eGPU at times. I don't want to change the xorg.conf depending on the setup.
I'd like to just be running my semi default debian or ubuntu build with the nvidia-driver/cuda package activated and usable while I'm at a desk with the eGPU.
Thanks for the help
It should be totally possible to use CUDA on a NUC with Linux. See my guide here, specifically at the section "Enable the eGPU in Linux"
However, using the method (which I find was the simplest solution) does not allow simultaneous use of the integrated intel gpu and the NVidia egpu. I don't find it to be much of a problem though.
