eGPU Experience with OSX 10.12 and Thunderbolt 2
Jul 10 2019 | 12:21 pm
I'm currently looking into eGPU's and was wondering if any of you have some (good/bad) experience using them in combination with Mac and Max8. I'm currently on OSX 10.12.6 (using Macbook 15" retina mid 2015), and I read that the eGPU's are only supported after 10.13.4+. There are some articles on how to get them going with older OSX versions (10.10-10.12), and also in combination with thunderbolt2 (instead of thunderbolt3). But does Max recognize the graphics card when doing so, or should I just upgrade to Mojave to save me a lot of headaches? Also trying to wrap my head around buying a separate enclosure + graphics card, or an all-in-one solution (like the sonnet breakaway or the blackmagic egpu). All suggestions/tips are welcome, thanks in advance!
I looked around on the forum but couldn't really find anything helpful so far.
