  1. Hey, despite claims to the contrary by the self proclaimed "experts", High Sierra can work with eGPU and Nvidia cards. Details coming
  2. Pay attention to what you are doing. Biggest issue people have is not triggering external PSU to fire. Keep in mind no OS X drivers for 1070

    Macbook Pro 2016 15" Working solution?

    There is a DSDT solution for 15*.

    Non Touchbar with Windows is easy. Go to device manager switch to "view by connection" disable the PCIE bridge above the FaceTime camera then disable and re-enable the bridge above the 1060 it may crash and reboot but the 1060 should work
  5. You need to describe what you did for us to know what you didn't do.

    What does Device Manager say about the 1060? Which 13" is it? Emoji bar or escape key? Have you done any turning off of devices?

    So 4K video that you are playing on the internal screen or the external? And how do you turn off the internal GPU? I ask because I've noticed that my nMP 6,1 now lists "Automatic Graphics Switching" as "enabled"

    Akitio thunder3

    There is a script to enable TB3 on the MBP 2016 What are you hoping to do and with what pieces? I got the Akitio 3 and found it quite limited compared to Razer Core

    Hi, Could you clarify? I don:t understand what you:re saying about 4K video. Also * Turn off Automatic Graphics Switching (use the Radeon Pro GPU) to fix this.* How do you do that?

    nMP - Sierra - Wont Boot

    You're overthinking. Either run the clown's script or mod the files yourself. Each OS build has a driver. macvidcards.com has a drivers page with each build listed and a link to download the driver
  12. 16B2657 was 10.12.1 Issue is with 10.12.2, and here they are: https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/367/WebDriver-367.15.10.25f01.pkg Turn off the tar heater and put away the feathers.
  13. Before getting out the tar and feathers, maybe give Nvidia 24-48 hours to release the new driver?
  14. OK, I'll go out on a limb and say you'll have to fiddle around a bit. I think there are very few folks who have stated "Yep, just plugged stuff in and it all worked perfect from get go" Razer has a business model where eGPU working is important. Apple, not so much. They could make their machines work perfectly with =eGPU but they have no reason to. Instead, what has been found is that each and every model and version requires some fiddling or faddling. At the very least for Windows you will probably have to play with timing of when you plug TB cable in. For the new MBP 2016 for instance, the method to get Windows working with eGPU is different for each of the 3 types. I have Non-Touchbar version and I found a super easy way with no DSDT fix required. But most with Touch Bar have found that a DSDT hack is needed. This means running in Test Mode which disables some things and slows the boot down. And it is likely that running a Nvidia Kepler card is easier than a Maxwell card and the means to run those will likely be different than if you have an AMD card. And all of that is why there isn't going to be a simple helpful SINGLE YES OR NO answer from someone saying "Go for it, all will be fine". Here are 4 possible outcomes: 1. You find someone with same gear who got it working, read their experiences, and do the same thing and get same results. 2. Someone with same exact setup will be bored, reading through random posts and find this thread, type up what worked/didn't work for them. 3. You will buy the gear and find the answer, hopefully sharing your results here. 4. You'll give up and not bother. Consider doing #3 if 1 and 2 don't happen. We need more people doing the leg work. I have 4 or 5 MacBooks here, not one like yours. I can answer for the ones I have, but anything about a different model would be a wild guess AT BEST. Nobody can just look at specs and say "It Shall Work". With eGPU only way to know for sure is someone to try it and report.
