    AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    @Slice Thank you very much!! it's very helpful. I will make a plan following your advice! anyway, I don't know they help your development, but I attached pictures that were of screen when the crash occurred with RX560. usually magenta, once cyan. thank you!

    nvidia without web driver

    if a web driver is NOT installed, what happens?? I used AMD RX560 in Sierra, but it is very unstable. usually gpu crash or window server crash occurred. so now I attached nvidea Quadro FX1700 to my Sierra. I know FX1700 works well in High Sierra, but I haven't tried it in Mojave yet. FX1700 works well without any additional kext, even nvidia web driver. I plan to buy a nividia card. I would like to know if a nvidia card, especially kepler, maxwell, pascal, works without web driver. just curious.

    No Acceleration for Radeon RX460

    @inequals I think missing devices after waking after sleep can be caused by DSDT or SSDT. how's your DSDT?? In my case, all port, DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI can't catch a signal. which framebuffer does your High Sierra use?? @SiddRamesh Does your 7650M work like OOB on Sierra??

    Tracing back the AMD GPU wakeup issue to its origin

    In High Sierra's AMD kexts, I'm curious about what differences there are between ATIFramebuffer and IOFreambuffer. I think there is no ATIFramebuffer in Sierra's AMD kexts. Is it the reason there are cards that works on Sierra but don't work on High Sierra?? I made a topic http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/329602-no-acceleration-for-radeon-rx460/.

    No Acceleration for Radeon RX460

    @bbmatias3 lilu and whatevergreen don't work on High Sierra in my case. I use Mieze's method, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328549-tracing-back-the-amd-gpu-wakeup-issue-to-its-origin/. I wrote the lines on DSDT. on Sierra, my rx460 works well as oob without a helper or additional kexts. but, on High Sierra it doesn't work, with lilu and whatevergreen, a black screen occurs, no graphics comes.

    @nvflash sadly, my machine has Legacy BIOS. but RX460's bios has a legacy part and a uefi part, hybrid bios.

    No Acceleration for Radeon RX460

    I've been trying to have my RX460 work. in vanilla state, it worked only in safe mode. I found some kexts, AMD95**, which have the same device id as my rx460, 0x67EF1002. so I removed 9510, 9515 and 9520, then it works without no acceleration. so I compared High Sierra's AMD9500 with Sierra's. High Sierra's AMD9500 contains "AtiGpuWrangler" in IOKitPersonalities. and the os loads AMD9500ControllerWrangler, and does not load AMDRadeonX4*** framebuffer. on Sierra, AMDRadeonX4200 is loaded. I think, in order to have my RX460 work, AMDRadeonX4*** need to be loaded. so now I have a question. what is AtiGpuWrangler? what is AMD9500ControllerWrangler? and also, in IOKitPersonalities in AMD9500, there are 2 IOMatchCategory, IOFramebuffer in AtiGpuWrangler and ATIFramebuffer in Controller. what does this means??

    Tracing back the AMD GPU wakeup issue to its origin

    @Pabloesc without additional kexts or without rollback to (lower) Sierra kexts??

    Tracing back the AMD GPU wakeup issue to its origin

    on High Sierra, with using my DSDT which works well on lower Sierra, my screen receives a signal from my RX 460, but the black screen occurs. I found that window server crashed every 30 seconds.

    Tracing back the AMD GPU wakeup issue to its origin

    @cyberdevs I edited my DSDT like the one Mieze showed. using the dsdt, my RX460 works on Sierra (lower Sierra) without a helper gpu or additional kexts. it don't work on High Sierra 13.1 (not beta). the black screen occurs, but a signal seems to come to my monitor. in safe mode (-x arugument), DP and HDMI are active, DVI is not. I think I confused you. but, thank you for your kindness. anyway, do I need to rollback to Sierra (lower sierra) kexts??

    @Gigamaxx you mean High Sierra 13.2 "Beta", rigit?

    @xtddd you can rewrite your GPU name in clover config.plist. I changed the name like below <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Cosmetic Modify for Radeon RX 460 for AMD9500Controller</string> <key>Find</key> <data>UjkgeHh4</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AMD9500Controller</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>UlggNDYw</data> </dict> </array> </dict> </key> you can find the model name (like AMD 9xxx) in AMD9510Contorller that is included in AMD9510Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD9510Controller. open the file with a hex editor, and find your model name which your machine shows. please refer a pic in my post, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328549-tracing-back-the-amd-gpu-wakeup-issue-to-its-origin/page-4?do=findComment&comment=2529812 @Gigamaxx did you modify any kext-s?? I tried as same DSDT as in Sierra (lower sierra), but black screen occurred. however the signal seemed to come to my monitor.

    Tracing back the AMD GPU wakeup issue to its origin

    @Mieze YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB!! my Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 460 works well on Sierra without a helper gpu, macpro 5,1 smbios, xeon processors. waking up form sleep also works well. I will try to do with High Sierra. you saved my wallet from being empty. but, PCI Device information on System Information is missing. do I need any modification with my DSDT? Danke schön!!
