    I'd check out Techinferno for more info. Others definitely have it working with the nMP. I'm using the Akitio+GTX970 with my iMac and my MBA (mostly for gaming). Works pretty great.

    The biggest problem is I believe no one can get eGPUs working with the nMP under Windows. OS X is fine, but Windows where I really want it hasn't been cracked.

    Done & Done.

    As usual, MVC and Netkas do it first.

    an Nvidia eGPU running in nMP in Windows.

    Details and screenshots coming.

    And some more surprises in next week or two.

    Stay tuned.

    You, my friend, are the freakin' man! This greatly increases the longevity of this expensive little computer I just bought.

    Definitely was not expecting to read this today.
