Mac Mini dual boot linux + eGPU + Nvidia

Hello all,

I do not have any problem (not yet ahah) but I want to be sure of my hardware before spend money in a powerful graphic card.

I would like to run one of my company’s IA Algorithm in this configuration :

  • Computer: Mac Mini
  • OS: Ubuntu 16.04
  • Graphic Card : Nvidia 1080 TI thanks to an eGPU

My question is:
Will my graphic card be recognize by the linux drivers in this configuration ?

I am afraid the e-GPU might be a problem or the linux drivers for mac mini’s hardware.

Thank you !

PS: I did not know where to post this topic, hope I am in the good place otherwise sorry for that !
