    iMac Pro X299 - Live the Future now with macOS 10.14 Mojave [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    I still have a USB macos 10.13.3 installation disk, I've kept it preciously in case I ad to replace my motherboard. Happy to make a dump of it for those hoping to enable their Aquantia 10gig network card.

    iMac Pro X299 - Live the Future now with macOS 10.14 Mojave [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    The LG 5K2K let you set the Thunderbolt input to use DP 1.4. Using a MacBook Pro (also Titan Ridge), this leads to a black screen; but I've read report that DP1.4 wasn't supported on the MBP. However, I just got a Lenovo X1 extreme, which also has a Titan Ridge chipset; with the LG 5K2K...

    Yeah, 4xPCIe lanes shared by everything on the PCH, including the M.2 slot which is using 4 lanes all by itself already. Add the wifi card, USB and what else.

    Likely because someone look at the numbers, see where it can be connected (PCH) and realise that it would make zero difference in actual use, and so save 2c per boards.

    What do you have in /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-1e6d ? When you run: ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayPrefsKey what do you get? Also, maybe try enabling the pref instead: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist...

    iMac Pro X299 - Live the Future now with macOS 10.14 Mojave [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Yeah, all the other resolutions set the screen to 3440x1440 which looks awful That's what the <key>DisplayPixelDimensions</key> <data> AAAUAAAACHA= </data> fixes. It's trivial to remove SwitchResX. Start the SwitchResX app, in the top left "ScreenResX" menu (on the left of...

    Fully uninstall ScreenResX. My guess is thst you set the preference to always show the resolution. When you set a scaled resolution, what real resolution is the screen set at? 34401440 or 51202160? You see this in the screen settings, preferences second page down.

    I added a thermaltake thermometer to my watercooling loop. It serves no purpose as the AMD always reads 2C over the water temperature. I don't know how they could manage their cooler to be so ineffective and so noisy.

    The VII, is exactly the same as the Vega 20 (same product id btw), just higher clock rate. Same Vega architecture (just 7nm print). New model is coming soon. I'd wait anyway, even if the waterblocks were available.

    interesting resolution you're being offered here: 3008x1269, I don't get this in the list: 5120x2160 3840x1620 3360x1417 (The one I use) 2560x1080 2048x864 those are also the resolution I get when I connect the screen via TB3 to the mac. Oh, using the RDM utility, I do see this resolution.

    Adding/Using HiDPI custom resolutions

    Ok, I've figured out why it looks crap. The physical resolution used with the screen is 3440x1440, not 5120x2160 Edit: SOLVED! Added: the following key to the DisplayProductID-7720 <key>DisplayPixelDimensions</key> <data> AAAUAAAACHA= </data> which is: <00001400 00000870>...
