    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    I got mine directly on amd.com. They do weekly or bi-weekly drops at MSRP now. Get a auto-refresh extension and do every 30 mins, have the window always visible on your desktop and be ready to act quickly.

    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Reference AMD RX 6800XT working perfectly with iMacPro1,1 and agdpmod boot arg.

    Not sure who needs to hear this but the macOS 11.3 beta2 released today is a public beta and therefore not restricted by any NDA's.

    This code refactoring and the fact it's not working is actually encouraging, that means they're actively working on it. "Macs require macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 or later and compatible AMD graphics card" Emphasis on compatible. It's still reliant on drivers, it's just an external enclosure.

    Guys... there's not going to be functionality changes between a beta and a RC. New features are introduced in betas, RC's are to validate them and make sure they are bug free. Maybe 11.3 beta1 will include it but there's nothing unexpected here.

    Any file changes in beta2 that might indicate at least work was being done on it between releases?

    I just got a 6800XT direct from AMD the other day, at MSRP no less. So stock is definitely improving and I need those drivers.

    Gigabyte Z370 HD3P - i7 8700K - RX580 8GB - Catalina 10.15.5 - OpenCore 0.5.9

    Hey @andyxm715. I got OpenCore 0.6.3 to work but my CPU is constantly at near peak core frequency in Intel Power Gadget. The CPU should throttle down to around 2.2GHz when nothing is using it but instead it's always near 4.5GHz. Are you seeing this in your setup as well?

    Thanks for the OpenCore starter pack. I'm having issues with the latest version so if you upgrade to latest OpenCore and Big Sur please reply here so we/I get notified of the update :)

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    RX 580 working perfectly here on 10.15.4. DRM in Safari and all. /edit iMacPro1,1 profile, IGPU disabled, latest (compiled) Lilu & WEG. /edit2 I can't say how pleasantly surprised I am by this. None of the other Catalina versions worked for me so I put off upgrading until now.

    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    Has anyone been able to get RX 5xx cards DRM (Safari) to work in any version of Catalina? I keep trying every version and then reverting to Mojave when it eventually doesn't work. /edit Nevermind, everything works GREAT in 10.15.4.

    I too am waiting for this to be fixed. For now, if DRM in Safari is as important to you as it is to me, you can use 10.14.6. That's the last version where DRM works for me with my RX580 using the iMacPro1,1 profile.

    Oh thank you so much! I didn't realize that thread was being kept up to date with development updates.
