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.
