2013 Apple Mac Pro 2.7GHz 12 Core/64GB/256GB Flash/Dual AMD FirePro D700 6GB 6,1

Hey MacPro users.

I just bought a refurbished 13-Core MacPro with 64GB of RAM for a cybersecurity gaming project I'm working on. Could not wait for the new MacPro in 2019, so this will have to do:

2013 Apple Mac Pro 2.7GHz 12 Core/64GB/256GB Flash/Dual AMD FirePro D700 6GB 6,1

Now, I'm thinking about which eGPU to buy.

Yes, I know it's only Thunderbolt 2 versus Thunderbolt 3, but that's OK for now.

I'm looking at a number of eGPUs and various eGPU enclosure setups.

Does anyone here have a 2013 Mac Pro with an eGPU?

ASMC(4) 						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						   ASMC(4)

asmc -- device driver for the Apple System Management Console (SMC)
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device asmc Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): asmc_load="YES"
The asmc driver controls the Apple System Management Console (SMC for short) found on Intel Apple systems. The SMC is known to be found on the following systems: o MacBook o MacBook Pro o Intel MacMini o Mac Pro o MacBook Air o Intel iMac With this driver, you can configure your keyboard backlight brightness, check temperatures of several sensors, check the speed of the inter- nal fans and check the status of the Sudden Motion Sensor. Variables related to the SMC control and inspection are exported via sysctl(3) under the device tree dev.asmc.
On MacBook Pro systems, you can control the keyboard brightness by writing a value to the dev.asmc.%d.light.control sysctl MIB. The following sysctl MIBs contains the raw value returned by the left and right light sensors: dev.asmc.%d.light.left or dev.asmc.%d.light.right.
The number of temperature sensors and their description varies among systems. You can inspect the temperature sensors on your system by traversing the dev.asmc.temp sysctl MIB. All values are in degrees celsius.
The sysctl tree contains the leaf nodes speed, safespeed, minspeed, maxspeed and targetspeed. Each of these leaf nodes rep- resent the current fan speed, the safest minimum fan speed, the minimum speed and the maximum speed respectively. All values are in RPM.
The Sudden Motion Sensor (SMS for short) is a device that detects laptop movement and notifies the operating system via an interrupt. The sysctl MIBs present under dev.asmc.sms all relate to the SMS. The most interesting usage of this device is to park the disk heads when the laptop is moved harshly. First, you need to install ataidle(8) (ports/sysutils/ataidle) and then configure devd(8) the following way: notify 0 { match "system" "ACPI"; match "subsystem" "asmc"; action "/usr/local/sbin/ataidle -s X Y"; }; Do not forget to change the X and Y values in the command above. Also, please note that parking the disk heads too many times can dramatically reduce your hard drive's life span. Do not rely solely on the SMS to protect your hard drive: good care and common sense can increase your hard drive's life.

The asmc driver first appeared in FreeBSD 8.0.
