Yes at this time Vega cards are the fastest for Hackintosh which have full and native Apple drivers support, plus all macOS pro applications take advantage from OpenCL which Radeon cards are very powerful with.

 

Vega 56 has 56 compute units and 3584 cores where Vega 64 has 64 compute units and 4096 cores with higher clocks which makes it a bit faster, still the choice is yours.

 

My suggestion after getting the card is to clean install of macOS, I disable iGPU in BIOS and select iMac Pro1,1 as SMBIOS with my 8700K, if you use older chipset and IGPU is required then select iMac depending on your system chipset.

 

Even if those cards work without WEG+Lilu kexts it still better to include them to set the GPU address correctly in the system.

 

FCPX, DaVinci Resolve Apple Compressor and Apple Motion flies on my Vega 64 and I actually couldn't be more happy about its performance.

 

Good luck!

 @RandomTech I had a MSI OC  Edition Vega 56. I have tried to get it working. all day. but have had no luck as it would not load metal acceleration
