||Can I upgrade the power supply in the Sonnet eGFx Breakaway Box or Breakaway Box 550?||Sep-20-19|
||Does an eGPU accelerate Adobe After Effects?||Jun-21-21|
||Does the Breakaway Box support the AMD Radeon Vega 64, FE, WX8200 or WX9100, Radeon VII, or Radeon 5700 or 5700 XT?||Jan-12-20|
|AMD Radeon Vega 56, Radeon 5700 (1)|
This card is supported in the Breakaway Box 350, 550 or 650.
AMD Radeon Vega 56, Radeon 5700 XT (1,2)
This card is supported in the Breakaway Box 550 or 650.
AMD Radeon Vega 64 (2) (air cooled), Vega Frontier Edition (air cooled); Radeon Pro WX8200 or WX9100; Radeon VII (3):
These cards are supported in the Breakaway Box 650.
AMD Radeon Vega 64 (liquid cooled) or Vega Frontier Edition (liquid cooled):
These cards are not supported.
1. The Radeon 5700 and 5700 XT are supported on Windows 10 Build 1809+. Support on macOS requires 10.15.2+
2. Some large gaming versions of Vega 64 and Radeon 5700 XT do not fit in the Breakaway Box. Check the Graphics Card Compatibility pdf for specific model information.
3. The Radeon VII is requires Windows 10 Build 1809+ or macOS 10.14.6+ to work at all, but we don't recommend it. On macOS, the Radeon VII mostly works, but is not officially supported by Apple, AMD, or Sonnet. On macOS or Windows, The Radeon VII fans unnecessarily run at full speed upon sleep or shutdown. To quiet the fans, the user must power down an eGPU chassis with a Radeon VII upon sleep or shutdown.
||The GPU-350W-TB3 and GPU-350W-TB3Z both have 350W power supplies, but only GPU-350W-TB3Z supports some higher end cards. Why?||Oct-21-19|

||I have a Windows computer with a discrete (internal) NVIDIA Quadro dGPU, and the external NViDIA GeForce or Titan eGPU is not recognized.||Jun-21-21|
||Can I use a Sonnet eGPU with Boot Camp?||Jun-21-21|
||What kind of performance can I expect from the NVIDIA Titan Xp (Pascal) with the eGFX Breakaway Box?||Nov-06-17|
|In a Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box, the Titan Xp was performing at:|
Single-precision Float 12.4 Tflops/s
Double-precision Float 416 Gflop/s
Note: You may have read that some other manufacturers' external graphics boxes--even some with a higher power supply rating--fail under heavy load with the NVIDIA Titan Xp (Pascal) card. Not so with a Sonnet Breakaway Box. In choosing a power supply, Sonnet carefully considers not only the eGFX Box nominal power rating, but also its instantaneous peak power delivery capability. Sonnet runs many rigorous tests (including the CUDA-Z benchmark, set to Heavy Load Test Mode). The Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box must pass the most stringent tests before we put it in your hands.

||I'm connecting from a DVI (or sometimes DP) port on my GPU Card--via an adapter cable--to an HDMI port on my monitor and the display looks magenta.||Jun-21-21|
|If you are connecting from a DVI (or sometimes DP) port on your GPU Card--via an adapter cable--to an HDMI port on your monitor and the display looks magenta, you can fix the issue in the monitor control panel. Go to the monitor Color Settings; select Input Color Format; change from RGB to YPbPr. That should solve the problem.|

||I connected my monitor to the Breakaway Box, Breakaway Puck, or DuoModo eGPU Module on my 2018 or newer Mac mini, but it boots with a black screen.||Jun-21-21|
|If you have a 2018 or newer Mac mini with FileVault turned on, you must connect your primary display directly to the HDMI port on your Mac mini during startup in order to enter your encryption password. After you log in and see the macOS Desktop, you can unplug the display from Mac mini and connect it to your eGPU.|
Under macOS 10.14.6, a 2018 Mac mini with some GPU cards must be booted with a monitor connected to the Mac mini's HDMI port. If you have a Mac mini with an affected GPU card, you must either:
(a) Update to macOS 10.15.7+
(b) Connect an HDMI display emulator plug to the Mac mini HDMI port and mirror displays. (You must make sure that the HDMI display emulator is the Master Mirror. Drag the menu bar to the HDMI display emulator window before mirroring.)
(c) Connect a monitor to the Mac mini's HDMI port to log in, and then move the HDMI monitor connection to the eGPU.
||I'm trying to use four HDMI monitors by adding DP-to-HDMI adapters, but it doesn't work.||Jun-21-21|
||I'm trying to use an additional HDMI monitor by adding a DP-to-HDMI adapter, but it doesn't work.||Jun-21-21|
|That is likely because you are using a passive DP to HDMI adapter. Use an active DP-to-HDMI adapter, which generates the clock needed for HDMI, and it will work.|
||Do not disconnect or power off you eGPU during sleep or your Mac will crash.||Apr-20-21|
|macOS does not support disconnecting or powering off an eGPU during sleep. If you do so, your Mac will kernel panic. This is an issue that persists through at least macOS 11.2.3. Sonnet has reported the issue to Apple.|
