Mac mini + Radeon RX560 eGPU in AORUS Game Box GTX1070 case.

I bought external video card Aorus GamBox GTX1070 more than a year ago but used it very little, because Nvidia video cards are not supported in Mojave operation system. I was waiting for a while when that will be fixed but seems that this will not happen anytime soon. Also, I was planned to install Windows on my Mac Mini to use Nvidia card for gaming, but didn't find time for that during last year and looks that I will have even less time for gaming in this winter.

I decided to replace the video card in the eGPU case with one from supported by Apple and bought RX560. This is not most powerfull from cards listed on Apple eGPU page, but the size is about the same as used in case GTX1070, so that could work 🤞

Long story short - it works.

I had some weird resolution issues, but just a few restarts solved that.

After one day in with eGPU I saw that once card didnt started when Mini was turned off and then on again, but after that card works without problems.
