AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

Hopefully the Vega card will beat a 1080 or get close at least.   But knowing AMD it will probably have RX 480 performance at 1/2 the wattage, dun!    

 

Polaris Cards that work in Sierra 12.1

RX 480 

Sapphire nitro and reference cards, XFX reference and aftermarket versions, Powercooler RED DEVIL 

 

Polaris Cards that have failed to get support as of yet

RX 480 

Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS

 

RX 470 Working

MSI, Sapphire

 

RX 470 Not Working

Asus, Gigabyte 

 

RX 460 Working

Sapphire nitro, Gigabyte 

 

RX 460 Not Working

XFX, Asus

 

These are cards I either personally tested or that were confirmed by posted benchmarks on other sites and confirmed by others.

 

The cards I tested that didn't work may have support now ( most were tested in Sept.) but I haven't seen any positive results to re-do the not working list.   If anyone has one of these cards or something new to add please comment.    These are cards run on Hackintosh, a real mac may not be brand specific.

strictly says 470/480 aren't working, you would got a bootable system without any acceleration or kernel panic when trying add device id into kexts

So is the Sapphire 480x now working or NOT working?

And would it be a major upgrade compared to the 280x in FCPX?

Ed, please take a look at the first page of this thread, RX 480 is not correctly working yet.

@gigamaxx don't say/write BS on my thread please, we are way far from a "working" condition on these GPUs (RX470 - RX480).

taking some time checking the source code of clover, all code regard AMD gpu initializing resident in the file ati.h and ati.c,i have found out theres some problem maybe the reason why  polaris failed to initialize during booting

1. Framebuffer list did not include polaris framebuffers

2. in device list,the framebuffer setting for rx 480 is "ELLESMERE",which did not exist in macos driver

3.no mention about rx 470 at all

i know nothing about C language,if someone could provide more insight into these two files, we would great appreciated

Ellesmere is the Chip Family, it's not a Framebuffer ;)

RX480/470 FB's are Dayman and Guariba (i guess).

RX470 has the same device id 67DF.  

 

@Slice can you add the 9500controller in ATI.h and ATI.c with related Framebuffers? Please :)

Working for me with modified AMDRadeonX4100.kext and baffin framebuffer in clover config

 

 

 

Matteo, of course it "works", but not the right way ;)

And if you do a benchmark you will see low scores, because the GPU is not working properly.

Doesnt seem to be a big difference though, tested my RX480 (nitor oc) on windows and osx unigine valley test:

- 46.1 fps (os x opengl)

- 47.8 fps (windows opengl)

- 54.1 fps (windows direct x)

Try to run a compute benchmark on geekbench 4 and you will see... 

My RX480 does 93.000 on Mac OS and 125.000 on windows, so there is a big difference ;)
