    DIY eGPU Macbook experiences

    It's been a while since I've been on this forum, not sure what else has changed, but have you considered using Windows 7 and doing bootcamp? Since I also have the TH05 on a late 2012 13" rMBP I found that to be such a smooth and easy installation.
  2. I assume you are a mac user, I primarly use mac os for work, hobbies photography, but for gaming hands down windows laptop is the way to go. If you are to go the mac route, since TH04 will be coming out later this year, if you can wait you may as well wait for the 13" rMBP refresh with Haswell CPU and by then most likely next gen of GPU will be out. Otherwise the only other suggestion is get a windows based laptop. I'm not sure what the best choice would be in the end it's up to you.
  3. Black ops 2 video gameplay uploaded, max resolution the rMBP offers. Starcraft 2 video gameplay uploaded. RE5 benchmark results/videos up later and that's pretty much it.
  4. Diablo 3 gameplay video added, Will be adding Starcraft 2 and black ops 2 tonight gameplay vids tonight. RE5 benchmark will be added soon as well, seems to be a good benchmark for comparison.
  5. I have only tried retina on dirt 3, others seems to be too much pixels to push for the little mac. Although it's playable but for me I prefer smooth fps. Yeah no worries, I'll try and help out. I'm sure it won't be too different to other setups. Although I'm trying to provide as much video/info as I can I am on holiday on Thursday so I doubt I'd be online if at all. Link whatever you want, the more people get notice of this eGPU thing the better it is. I've also provided this forum link as well. Much thanks to Nando of course I don't think many would stumble across this community without him.
  6. I've set it to low through bl2, makes a massive difference, everything still left on max settings other than physx, I don't think it ever really dipped below 60fps.
  7. Interesting, thanks for the heads up, I'll turn physx to low and compare the results. I have just uploaded a quick gameplay vid on batman arkham city, will run a benchmark post a vid as well getting roughly 40s on average on arkham city. Currently uploading crysis 2 on ultra+high res texture pack, fps is in the 30s low 40s.
  8. Everything is on max settings at 1920x1200, physx is on high as well. I should have put fraps on when recording but the fps was capped at 60, during gameplay and battles it would drop quite a bit to 20fps in really heavy battle on average I'd say fps within 35-45. I'll have to do more runs as that video was running very smooth while I was playing a lot smoother than a quick run with fraps on, could be just me realising the fps with fraps on though. Still the gameplay is more than playable although I prefer to lower the settings.
  9. A quick Borderlands 2 gameplay vid is up on my post on page 1. I will add Batman Arkham city, BF3, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and Black ops II when I get the chance.
  10. I did a run results but this is with a gtx 670Heaven Benchmark v3.0 Basic FPS: 36.1 Scores: 908 Min FPS: 17.8 Max FPS: 49.6 Hardware Binary: Windows 32bit Visual C++ 1600 Release Mar 7 2012 Operating system: Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1) 64bit CPU model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90GHz CPU flags: 2893MHz MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3 SSSE3 SSE41 SSE42 HTT GPU model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 9.18.13.1090 2048Mb Settings Render: direct3d11 Mode: 2560x1600 fullscreen Shaders: high Textures: high Filter: trilinear Anisotropy: 4x Occlusion: enabled Refraction: enabled Volumetric: enabled Tessellation: normal
  11. 768GB huge !!! Sadly I don't think there would be any place selling TH05. They will be releasing a TH04 which I think is similar to the PE4L with a TB port not ETA though. Since I've been able to get mine working through external and internal now, I won't be sending mine back since they have sent out a recall notice. All I can say is, gaming on this eGPU setup is quite amazing, I will post my benchmarks later tonight and some pics and hopefully later some gameplay videos. So far I've tested Crysis 2 and Borderlands 2. I have noticed an issue with the menu in Crysis 2 the cursor does not seem to match the actual screen, I'll need to follow up on that but playing full HD Crysis 2 is more than playable at max default settings. Borderlands 2 is no different max setting on max retina resolution is more than playable too although slow downs are noticeable when it happens although that was from a quick test. I'll do further testing tonight for updates. A quick 3d mark 11 benchmark gave me around 4.4k on the internal display. When I had mine set up with refit windows 8 external display I was getting low 6k.
  12. I too have tried, with the same setup as Kloper 8GB ram. No idea if that could be causing it.
  13. NOTE: The TH05 recall notice. As a result refer to either of these solution that can be implemented today: [url]http://forum.techinferno.com/diy-e-gpu-projects/4570-%5Bguide%5D-2012-13-rmbp-gtx660-sonnet-echo-express-se-%40-10gbps.html#post63754[/url] or Click for results 3dMark Vantage Basic:Score: 18699 Graphics Score: 23572 CPU Score: 11541
  14. Kloper great work mate!! much appreciate. I'll have to set mine up after work. I'll do some benchmarks and some videos. Once I get it running. Internal screen is the main feature for me for egpu set up on the go.

    TH05 Recall Notice

    I too received this email. I replied asking why I need to return it. Still waiting on a reply, would I need to return it if they ask?
