    iMac Pro eGPU Questions

    So I discovered I actually do qualify for some form of stimulus check, and should be receiving those funds shortly. I spend a lot of time gaming as a hobby on the side (maybe too much), and I'd like to see if I can get better performance by offloading graphics (for the internal display) to an...

    Does anyone else have issues running iMovie with an eGPU plugged in? I have a 2018 15" MBP with 560x and a Sonnet 550 box with an MSI 580 in it. iMovie just crashes instantly if I have it plugged in, even if there is no monitor connected to the eGPU and I am trying to use the built in Macbook...

    Yes the 16" MBP does run quieter with an eGPU on an external Monitor

    I share this information with you because I saw it coming up in several Threads if the 16" MBP connected to an eGPU does (and if how much) run quiter compared to having the monitor connected to the internal dGPU. And it does. Obviously. Quite a bit, in my personal use case - Webdevelopment (CPU...

    MacBook Pro (2018/2019) + Apple's Pro Display XDR thru an eGPU in a Razer Core X eGPU

    Hi there, I'm wondering if I can drive an Apple's Pro Display XDR thru an eGPU (for example Radeon RX 5700 XT, Radeon VII) in a Razer Core X eGPU hooked to a MacBook Pro (for example the 2018, 6-core, 560X). In theory, Thunderbolt 3 supports resolutions up to 8K but I have some confusion in...

    MP 6,1 AirPort mPCIe -> eGPU?

    So... bear with me. I have a 6,1 upgraded to the max - components and RAM are available at great prices on eBay right now - and I am investigating eGPU options, with the best so far looking like Apple TB2->TB3 adapter and a standard eGPU housing with an AMD card in. But some Google:ing made me...

    iMac Pro Possible to connect multiple Blackmagic eGPU to iMac Pro?

    Hi is it possible to connect two Blackmagic eGPUs and get better results? I'm thinking of another of the same basic one, or a Pro. Looking to get better performance doing 3D-rendering. After some google it seems daisy chain is not the way to go, but to be using different TB3 ports to balance...

    eGPU for Final Cut on 2018 MBP

    I have a 13" 2018 MacBook Pro. I use Final Cut Pro X a LOT. I'm looking into an eGPU but am reading a lot of things about FCPX not working with eGPU that much or that the Apple eGPU (Black Magic I think) is pretty bad. I'm really new at this and don't seem to understand what would work and...

    Wonky External Monitor refresh rates

    I retired my mid-2012 iMac and acquired a 15" 2019 MBP (MacBookPro15,3) and a BlackMagic Pro eGPU was gifted to me as well. I may just build my own eGPU in a generic, upgradable chassis and hock the BlackMagic but that's another story. The Mac is running Mojave 10.14.5. My iMac was 27" so I...

    NVIDEA as eGPU

    Documentation says that one must run Mac OS High Sierra in order to have the NVIDEA CUDA Drivers to work properly so that someone can run a NVIDEA eGPU for deep learning. Programs like tensorflow support CUDA/ NVIDEA, but not AMD. Also the higher end NVIDEA GPUs are very fast, such as the 2080...
