    [FAILED] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Those two are unrelated. iGPU compute is for GPGPU tasks. This is different from "graphics acceleration" which is required for a properly rendering macOS.

    Yeah macOS it not really useable without acceleration. You need to wait for acceleration or attach your screen to the iGPU.

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    You can see my motherboard below my avatar. Where do I look up the full model number?

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    I have the Titan Ridge card and the new 5k display. These are my observations: With unmodified firmware: * Display works in BIOS on cold and warm boot * Attached Thunderbolt devices (including the integrated ones) only work on cold boot With modified firmware (so that Thunderbolt bus is...

    macOS freezes after a while with WesternDigitial SN750

    So I got a new recommended drive the Sabrent-Rocket-1TB. It has **excactly** the same issue. There is no Apple directory on my efi partition. So that is not it. Any other ideas? This is getting ridic. Why does only my Samsung drive work without issues?

    macOS freezes after a while with WesternDigitial SN750

    Interesting. Cannot really test that now. I assumed it was some imcompatiblity between the drive and my shitty mainboard and repurposed the drive as cache on my NAS. I will get another drive soon for testing. Not sure which would be the best pick, though. Why did you ask whether I have any SATA...

    macOS freezes after a while with WesternDigitial SN750

    On which device? On the SATA drive? Can you explain why this is important?

    Yes. The only other drive connected is a SATA Samsung 860 EVO. However, this is my Windows drive and therefore only mounted read only by macOS.

    macOS freezes after a while with WesternDigitial SN750

    I was using a Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500GB without problems for two years with macOS (High Sierra, Catalina, BigSur). I am slowly running out of space and therefore I decided to upgrade to a 1TB drive. Because Samsung drives are supposed to be not the best pick for macOS (see here) I went for the...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    For me they only work after a cold boot. So if you are re-booting into one of those operating systems It could be that this is the issue. Another possibility are your BIOS settings. Make sure to disable any security feature.

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Preach! If there was a comparable monitor that did offer the same features without Thunderbolt (using DP1.4 + USB) like the old Apple Cinema Display I would have gotten that one.

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    I think that is not true. The time I bought the Ultrafine 5k (and I think even now) there is really nothing on the market if you want high pixel density. Most screens are some 4k 32" gaming screens. The price for the 5k is really good for what it has to offer.

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Sure. I am quite content with how it worked with the original firmware. I am just always trying to optimise my setup? Do you know what the state of the LG5k is on the Z390 Designare or Z490 Vision D/G regarding cold boot, warm boot, sleep with the onboard TB3 (I know it's only 4k then)? If...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    I am using the GC-TitanRidge for a while now on my Z390 Phantom Gaming 6 to drive my LG Ultrafine 5k. Because any USB devices attached or inside the monitor do not work after a warm boot, I decided to flash the modified firmware in order to check whether this would help. I flashed the...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    Possible. But I tried all the settings for my board without luck.
