  1. Sorry, I don't understand. Maybe I don't have enough knowledge to understand. Cause long time ago, it was possible to use a dedicated graphics card in a laptop in macOS.
  2. Are the new pascal (10XX series cards) drivers for macOS working?? Maybe now it works with the dedicated graphics card. https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.05.05.05f01.pkg You should try guys!!

  4. Could you please put it into the guide? Cheers The Dell XPS 9550 is ALMOST PERFECT, right? Just few things to make it the PERFECT hackintosh: - Audio!! Without the known glitches. - Thunderbolt (just to make sure it works). - Hibernation (and maybe sleep). - SD reader (who cares). - Every patch in SSDT instead DSDT. Would make it more robust for bios changes. And easier to make it work for everyone (and maybe something automated). This is almost perfect!! Good Job
  5. Nice to know. I find it very attractive to have that combination. Should be great if someone could try it and see if works. The important thing of the Thunderbolt 3 is not to have a USB-C connector, but the Thunderbolt 3 itself, IMHO.
  6. And without loosing the audio like you said with the speakers? With VoodooHDA or patched AppleHDA? Sorry for the question, I don't know how it works. EDIT: if you wanna see, how nice works the eGPU setup: https://egpu.io/akitio-node-review-the-state-of-thunderbolt-3-egpu/ https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/akitio-node-now-works-in-macos-with-late-2016-macbook-pro/ And a list of implementations of the eGPU: https://egpu.io/external-gpu-implementations-table/ And the script: https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/automate-egpu-sh-is-reborn-with-amd-polaris-fiji-support-for-macos/ Enjoy
  7. What I was asking for about audio, is if it is working through HDMI. Because is the only thing that I need. The TB3-GPU works, with minor tweaks. Apple, just banned the TB3 gpu cases, but jumping the protection (which is not difficult) you can use it, without problems increasing the GPU power x10 (for working or gaming purposes). Which is really good, if you want mobility, and you want graphics power at home. It is the perfect combination, is like having a notebook and a desktop at the same time. I would LOVE to have it. Cheers.
  8. If I could get the i7 processor without discrete graphics card, I would do it. This is the reason. And yes, I know that I could have TB3 GPU on windows (as far as I know, linux is unexplored too), but it is a must to get TB3 GPU in macos for work purposes. So it is a NEED for me to get TB3 working in XPS in order to buy it. What about the HDMI question?: And what about just using audio through HDMI? I am usually getting the audio through the monitor from the HDMI connection. Is it working? As long as it works through the speakers (as standalone, when I am going out with it) and through the HDMI when I am at home, it is perfect. Cheers.
  9. I want the best processor, for sure!! So discrete for me is a must. And what about just using audio through HDMI? I am usually getting the audio through the monitor from the HDMI connection. Is it working? As long as it works through the speakers (as standalone, when I am going out with it) and through the HDMI when I am at home, it is perfect. Sadly, this is a must and the purpose of having XPS as a candidate, being able to use TB3 external graphics card. If this doesn't work, I don't need to buy another computer to replace my macbook pro retina, because with just the intel graphics card is not enough. Thanks for the info. You are really nice!!
  10. You can't buy without discrete gpu, just with the most basic gpu is possible. Nice to know, about the 3 wire card, the thing is, what is the wire that you are not connecting? Nice to know about the SSD as well. I am sure we will know pretty soon. Apart from that, there are 2 things that I would like to know if works or not. I am having currently a Macbook pro retina early 2013, and I am thinking about updating in several months, and the best candidate it is the XPS 9550/9560 or precision 5510/5520. The things: 1) How is the audio currently working. I have been reading, that there are several problems with it, with not a good solution currently. 2) I would like to know if it works with an external GPU with a TB3 enclosure. Have someone tried? The main reason to change my laptop is for the possibility to use an external GPU with it, as I need it for work. Thank you very much, E.
  11. Is is possible to intall a 3x3 card instead a 2x2?? How?? Sadly, if you wanna get 4k and the biggest processor i7 7700hq, you don't have any other choice than get the 1Tb SSD... so no small SSD possible... Another possibility is to get the new Dell Precision 5520, which is the same machine with a quadro card, and you can customize it much better: processor, monitor, wireless, ssd, battery... (can you confirm it wmchris?) http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=xctop5520hwus&model_id=precision-15-5520-laptop&c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04
  12. - Kaby lake - nVidia 1050 4gb - Bigger battery!! - Don't know if anything more
  13. The new xps 9560 is out!! It worth it to make it work!!
  14. First of all thank you very much. I knew how to dissasembly it, but maybe for some people should be really useful, that is great. You said the ebay card linked before is the same than yours. That's not true. See the conector one and two are inverted (your connector 1 is on the left, and in the ebay link is on the right). Maybe is not really important, but just in case. Another thing that I want to ask you is, are you in the USA? I mean, your card is the 504664-001, and 001 use to be the USA version and the 002 the european version... So, I am kind of confused why is working (if you are in Spain)... is it supposed that can't. Thanks again.
