So, I've installed Beta 2 of 10.14.6 and I'm really wondering what was the point of this release?   I see no significant change, in anything.  Has anyone seen any real change?   How about enhanced functionality of some sort?  My Radeon VII card is almost identical in terms of its performance and it's problems.   

 

I'm not just talking about the VII card.  Overall, what is different?  I don't see much of anything....

 

As per Dev betas, they are applying bug fixes under the hood.

 

For me, I noticed it's a little more stable than Beta 1 when running a lot of applications and intensive tasks.

 

Radeon VII is working fine, minus the DisplayPort audio bug and the purple lines. The performance should be better than what we have now, maybe they will shift all resources to catalina after final of 10.14.6.

Catalina 10.15 Dev Beta 1 does not fix the purple lines and DisplayPort audio glitch either.

 

The latter is really annoying, I can live with the purple lines, though.

Better results in Geekbench 4 Metal and OpenCL c ompute tests with Lilu 1.3.7 and Whatevergreen 1.3.0 (Mojave 10.14.5)

Latest Lilu + WG did nothing for me, same issues...actually OpenCL scores are lower than before.

Update #2 with latest Lilu + WG....It actually made things worst. Audio glitch via DP now lasts forever, with previous release it would fix over time until you restarted.

 

And performance is lower now.

 

I don't know how the Lilu/WG dev can fix this, I made some comments but not sure if they look at it.

tested a XFX Radeon VII in my rig

OSX
Mojave 10.14.5

Catalina 10.15 beta 2

pretty similar result with geekbench for metal and OpenCl (about 170/180K)

Cinebench 15 (in 10.14.5 145 frame)

Luxmark 3.1 (51000)

Without weg and without any special port remapping only HDMI port is working

With WEG also 2 of 3 DP ports are ok the first one from top is not seen

DP Audio is fine. no scratch at all. Purple lines are there.

In my Mb no Bluetooth no wifi. Only a TbEx 3 thunderbolt adapter

GFX scales well under load no undervolt needs. Fans are running in a correct way

Thanks for the info.

 

All the 3 DP ports show up here with 10.14.6 Beta 2, however the 3rd DP port (next to HDMI) has this issue during boot:

And I have scratchy audio in DP audio, however if I leave the computer on for 2-3 days, it goes away. However a simple restart (lets say I want to boot into Windows) it comes back again.

 

But otherwise, the GPU is working very well no issues in daily tasks.

Weird, upgraded my RAM to better Trident Z 128GB 3600Mhz RAM (8x16GB) and the DP audio glitch went away? (I hope it lasts)...now after a fresh reboot and the audio is clean.

Sorry if I keep bumping this thread.


But anyway, 10.14.6 Developer Beta 4 (18G71a) does not fix these issues again.

I tried your recommendation and everything works fine. FCPX and DaVinci works perfect.

The only thing I see is a software VideoProc H264 ¨unavailable¨. A lilu/weg setting to fix this? thx

This is exactly what I'm getting now, @Picasso did you resolve this? Before changing to the suggested iMacPro1,1 it was showing as neither available. Thank you @CMMChris

 

 

UPDATE: HUGE thank you to @CMMChris for patching up my EFI folder for me. For some reason Clover 4988 caused my Hack to freeze at RANDOMSEED after I tried installing it myself, forcing me to revert to 4972, but he got that working as well.

I also get a glitch right before the Apple load bar finishes. Not sure if anyone else gets this.

GPU is being heavily used where appropriate, but I don't think the drivers are there yet unfortunately...or maybe this is how it's supposed to be?

 

 

 

I also got this before boot to desktop, i also have black screen for few seconds before it login...

I can see your SMBIOS is 18,1 did you tried iMacPro 1,1?

As you can see the R7 is working fine on my hack, results from bench mark are OK can do better I believe however, when running FCPX or DR the encoding/export results are very slow...is that related to Apple drivers or I need to modify my EFI?

Thanks

Did you noticed performance change from 10.14.5? could you please share the 10.14.6 AMD new drivers?

Rename your ACPI devices properly.

I couldn't find...can you please point me to the topic?

 

By the way, 

Metal in DR working faster than OpenCL....so I guess it is matter of Apple drivers that are not matured yet

Check here:

 

 

 

It will show the GPU Die temp in iStat Menu (or for example Heaven/Valley benchmarks) but not the HotSpot. AMD has added a lot of new sensors to the Radeon VII compared to Vega.

do you have this for official release of Mojave?

with this kext I am loosing my USB 3.0....

Anyone has panic issue with Radeon Vii on Mojave 10.14.5?

 

I built a Mac with 9900K+Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7+Msi Radeon Vii. However, I have no idea where I did wrong, the OS will reboot by panic (like my picture shows).
