  1. Hi slave-zero,

    I have a radine vii on my Hackintosh. z97xud5h, i7 4970k, 16Go Ram, Catalina 10.15.7, iMacPro 1,1, Clover [boot arguments agdpmod=pikera Lilu 1.4.7 - WhatEverGreen 1.4.3] (Big Sur ß11 working too with OC 0.6.2)

    All is working fine, but I have only one displayport monitor working. If I plug an HDMI monitor or another DisplayPort monitor, my first monitor glitches and the other is black or displays a small dropped picture.

    Is there any way to have all ports working ?

    Do you have all ports working ?

    In Hackintool in System/Peripherals the card's FrameBuffer is AMDFramebufferVega10 - 4 ports and in PCIe tab, it's Vega20... Do you have the same ?

    I can't find anything about my problem here.

    Thanks by advance for your answer.

    I do not, but if I knew how to get them I would.

    Dell XPS 8930 Resource Extravaganza!

    With 10.15.2 I started getting random reboots. I did some googling and came up with this forums post containing information about it. https://hackintosher.com/forums/thread/solved-random-restarts-dell-xps-8930-catalina.3900/ I hope this helps anyone having trouble with the same.
  4. I searched and couldn't find anything recent. Are graphics cards still gimped with AMD cpus? Last time I did a vanilla install of 10.14.x on my Ryzen 1700X / Vega 64 system the gaming and generral gpu performance was really poor compared to my intel system. Everything else was crazy fast though. I was curious if this has changed. thanks.

    Radeon VII in Mojave and Catalina

    Well I'll be danged. You are correct. I ended up picking up 2 more RAM modules for a total of 64GB so all slots are filled now. I should have checked the mobo manual first. Thanks for taking the time to explain and posting the manual page. From what I read my CPU has power draw problems on Z370 motherboards. So I went with the recommended Z390. It is running stable thus far so I have no real complaints. I purchased this setup for use mainly in Linux (Fedora) but I've always a sucker for macOS.

    Here are a couple of Geekbench OpelCL numbers. the first is Mojave and the second is Catalina. Mojave Catalina It looks like Catalina is a bit faster. I guess the drivers are being optimized a little.

    Radeon VII in Mojave and Catalina

    I just wanted to report I have my Radeon VII working well under Mojave (10.14.5) and Catalina (beta 4). They both kernel panic on the tail end of shutdown resulting in a reboot rather than clean shutdown. The panic is not a cause of any problems after rebooting, though. Catalina's drivers are way more stable than the ones in Mojave. I sometimes get VRAM reading errors on boot under Mojave which I do not get on Catalina. I am using lilu and whatevergreen. I haven't needed to do anything else to make my card work. As far as I can tell the features I use seem to be working properly. I drive 2 dell 1440p monitors @ 144hz. The video is stable and there is no weird artifacting. The games I play run great at roughly 25% better FPS than my Vega64 would do. I mainly play World of Warcraft. I don't seem to have any sort of hardware encoding for streaming to services like Twitch or Mixer. I also didn't with my VEGA64 so I didn't really expect anything new there. HDMI audio works fine, I plug my speaker set into the headphone jack on my monitor for proper audio. I haven't tested HDMI but the 3 display port ports work fine. I run my 2 monitors as an extended desktop and they work well. If there are any benchmarks anyone would like to see just reply and I'll run them. I'd kind of like to see a comparison of other Radeon VII owners cards to see if there are any configuration changes we can make to tweak them a bit.

    Oh, awesome. Thanks for the heads up!

    Same Dell XPS 8930 as my sig. Working properly as far as I can tell. For pre installation all I did was update Clover to r4940, added the 2 usb clover patches, updated all my lilu kexts and ran the macOS Developer Beta Access Utility. The OS itself has been smooth running so far. 32bit applications are sorely missed. Steam is dead in the water until it's updated to 64bit.

    Dell XPS 8930 Resource Extravaganza!

    It's been a while since I've visited this thread. My wife is using the 8930 as her main computer. It's currently running Mojave 10.14.2 but I'm going to upgrade today and see how it goes. I'll report new geekbench benchmarks when/if it finishes upgrading. Just a note, the Radeon RX 480 works fine on this setup with only lilu and whatevergreen installed in the kexts/10.14 directory on my EFI partition. There was only one negative thing I did note and sorry I forgot this. My daughter was using the 8930 as a graphics workstation. The older versions of Final Cut and Motion were giving corrupted files when rendering. This is with all the installable Pro App updates available. I updated Final Cut and Motion to their latest versions and they wouldn't start afterwords. Just a couple of icon bounces and an unexpectedly quit error. I tried this with a fresh install of Mojave 10.14.2 and it was the same thing. I first thought it was the Radeon RX 480 card but I tried a Radeon RX 580 with the same result. If anyone has the Pro Apps running on this machine PLEASE post here and let me know your configuration, such as kexts and clover options which differ from mine in the original post. It would be a great help to figuring this out. Otherwise, this is the most compatible Hackintosh I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Hardware wise everything is working EXCEPT the wifi, which i suspect never will. I might look into a replacement card even though I don't use the wifi.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    So far so good on my Dell XPS 8930 desktop. No problems with the AMD RX 580 in this machine. Everything appears to draw properly. My Geekbench score dropped about 3K but the system it self doesn't 'feel' slower. Oracle JAVA is still working, Steam is good, World of Warcraft plays about the same, Minecraft is fine, Texura NTFS is still working as is Paragon EXTfs, OpenGL games I've tested are good and Google Chorme runs the same. My RAM shows up at 2133MHz instead of 2666MHz. The dark Theme is pretty cool, I like it. Only thing I've ran into is scrolling with the mouse wheel is a bit wonky. It's like I scroll down 5 lines and it then scrolls back up 6 lines. I'm not sure what's causing the issue as it doesn't happen every time. It also doesn't happen when using the window scroll bar controls. Here are some obligatory screen grabs...

    I have a feeling this is not going to end well for either of us...

    I'm diligently working toward getting the Intel UHD 630 graphics working. I've made progress but ultimately still failing. The GPU is showing up in System Information properly (See image below). But will not display anything on the attached monitor. The monitor is initialized at boot time as it powers on from it's sleep state, but no useable output. The Apple VT H264 encoder also seems to be available with both hardware and software options. Below is showing the OBS output options. I've tried all manner of kext's and device id's and pretty much anything I could find to make it work. I'm still looking and testing. I'll update as I experiment.
