Blackmagic eGPU and Windows

PostSun Aug 11, 2019 2:54 pm

Does the Blackmagic eGPUs still not work for Windows? And if so, why is that? I would love to able to use it in Bootcamp, or a Windows Laptop.

As far as the Pro goes, it does not. Windows detects it, but can fine no drivers to get it to work.

Mac Mini has a intel iGPU.

I thought that you wanted a driver for your eGPU for windows(bootcamp).

Yes, Mac Mini’s internal is Intel. That’s why I got the Blackmagic external AMD gpu to make up for it. But it doesn’t seem to work in Windows bootcamp.

Or call Apple, you paid enough to expect some service.

Check out egpu.io and if those folks don't have a solution, you can forget it.

Their solution is a mod, specifically to remove Apple’s drivers, and replace them with bootcamp drivers that void the warranty. Which was not what I was looking for. Gonna assume it simply doesn’t work officially since Blackmagic says on their own page that it doesn’t work yet. Which sucks, since I like the device. Guess I’ll just return it.
