eGPU, RTX 2070 SUPER and Razer Core X
Im new on here and am glad i've found this site as its got some great info.
Im looking to get a Razer Core X enclosure and an NVIDEA RTX 2070 SUPER to run Octane/Redshift type rendering software. Ive since found out this morning that NVIDEA dont actually support RTX for Mac. Ive also found that to use the script hack that freak setup (brilliant) will only work if using High Sierra OS. Thats nots a problem for me if the script will work with the RTX card? So does anybody have experience of using this script and a NVIDEA RTX card? And if so did it work ok? Maybe theres a specific tutorial somewhere for this?
Also as im currently running Mojave on another 2019 iMac would an eGPU work (same parts, RTX card and Razer X) if I used boot camp? This would be my second choice if honest as it would mean working in Windows.
Thanks for any help that comes my way.
@lang welcome aboard. Sadly, as far as I know, there have never been any macOS drivers that support RTX cards regardless of version as the drovers for macOS High Sierra were made before RTX cards so they are of no use.
If you’re not in a hurry, Apple is (slowly 🙄) helping develop Octane and Redshift renderers optimized for AMD Vega II cards on Mac OS Catalina.
The AMD Radeon VII would work just as well in an eGPU setup.

Yeah have heard all about Apple and OTOY (Octane) trying to get something sorted but I know Apple are very slow and feel no urgency to deal with the multitude of creatives out there now switching to PC's because they've lost the plot, big time. Apple bring out an over priced over hyped Mac Pro and think that we'll all be happy just using Final Cut, but its absolutely rubbish at working with software that needs GPU power.
