I need a eGPU for MacBook Pro 2016!
@mini-i5, Oh wow got it. I'm testing out the eGpu on fcpx, I have a generator in my timeline and its taking forever to ender that one 3D clip... is there something I forgot to install or set for to could work faster?
Render/Share GPU: Use this pop-up menu to choose which graphics processing unit (GPU) to use in Final Cut Pro when rendering or sharing. This choice affects only rendering and sharing; real-time effects use the default GPU.
Also, set your new external display as your primary display in system preferences, and open and run FCPX on the external display.
@mini-i5, I noticed the display settings you sent me... When I had the core X I was using the external display only, now with the Chrome since I also like using my Touch Bar, would it bottleneck/slow down my performance? I read somewhere that its highly important to used an external monitor so you can use the eGPU to its fullest potential. What is I use both? when I open FCPX on my external display I have my time line and on the laptop I would have my Titles and Generators and occasionally open up Safari. Anything you noticed I'm doing incorrect?
You can leave Safari on your MBP's internal display.
Set your external display as the Primary Display in System Preferences. For any rendering or effects in FCPX you want accelerated by the eGPU, you should keep that window on the external display.
(Just fyi that FCPX uses the Intel processor for a lot of decoding/encoding tasks)
hey, You already know my set up... I'm just finishing up installing Windows on my MacBook.
I just need to know how to install the drivers (If I need to) from my 5700xt THICC and my Chroma encloser?
