RX580 Xeon E5 X79 Hardware Acceleration compatible?

Good morning. I tried to browse about 3 days looking for a compatibility answer for my (old) rig. So can someone tell me if it's possible to enable HEVC + H265 hardware acceleration on this machine?

I'd like to hear an answer before i'll give up please. The system lists the card properly and Metal is supported.


MSI X79A-GD45  Xeon E5-2696v2  16Gb DDR3 Powercolor Red Dragon RX 580 8Gb (it's not the infamous SP 2048 version) Mac OS 10.14.6


Thank you!

Thank you Hervè. Using iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS the software lists HW acceleration but doesn't lists the video card (see attachment). Tried to encode a movie but despite I could enable HW acceleration the conversion was cpu only, the video card was idle.




Same issue with my HP Z400 + RX580 8gb, flashed as Pulse mac version...


Did you found a solution?

ok, I did some research and found this thread





According with the author, it's just a Videoproc cosmetic error, which expect the word "AMD", instead our graphics card says "Radeon"


He says that it can be changed using opencore (and clover i guess), but I don't know how
