I just wanted to add that I got my old build upgrade to Catalina today along with a brand new Sapphire 5600XT and after some pain and suffering everything seems to be running perfect!? I haven't noticed anything bad or weird yet. But it's nice that iTunes videos now play on my system with the new card. Thank you to everyone that contributes here on Tonymac!!

Just wanted to chime in and say I have been using an XFX RX5700 (model RX57XL8LBD6) with no issues. Lilu and WEG are doing their thing with AGDPMOD=pikera and shikigva=80 for DRM on Safari. Catalina with a headless IGPU.
Here it is - On Amazon.

Guys,

do you think the PowerColor RX 5600XT Red Dragon is compatible and works in Catalina 10.15.3?
thanks!

EDIT

If you are looking for SILENCE, you must build a water custom loop.
Even at absolutelly full load I almost forgot that I have something runing around me (absolutelly silent)
This AIB cards (not reference from AMD versions) has less vram amd vrm quality components and they are more expensive than reference version (around 100US or 800 brazilian reais for me, that is almost triple the price of a GPU water block, I looked for asus strix 3fan version and sapphire nitro+ 3fan version).

If I were you I would go with reference card and with the money saved I would start building the loop.
My temps at full load (heaven test 10min longer) with water loop on GPU and CPU (i9 9900ks):
CPU 50~60c (at load)
GPU 44~49c (at load)
GPU HOTSPOT 57~67c (at load)
GPU VRM 65~70 (at load)
GPU CLOCK 1950 without Thermal throttling

My card is Power Color Radeon rx 5700 xt Reference Edition (single blower cooler version)


Temps at full load (running heaven on windows for 10minutes) with AIR cooler (high noise, fan curve not even at max rpm, can reach 4800rpm, absolutelly noisely)

below I will attach the GPU-Z Sensor Log of heaven at water cooler running benchmark test
(you can see at log that the gpu clock is running smooth over 1900mhz)

Water blocked with Bykski reference block (thermal pads side)

Block installed (this block can handle the original backplace whitout any issue)

I'm planning to get a RX 5700 8GB and then get a Bykski GPU block.
Can you recommend that block? Is it working properly?
Do you think the Radeon RX 5700 MECH GP OC would work in Catalina?

I just got my XFX 5600XT working on an older build. So far stable with iMac14,2 as ProductName, with Intel graphics disabled in BIOS, alongside agdpmod=pikera and shikigva=16 for DRM. One wrinkle was that I was getting bootloops from Lilu as long as I had Intel framebuffer patching defined in my config.plist Once I removed these two DSDT patches, the boot was quick and painless.

What patches are you talking about in config.plist??
Thanks!!

Did anyone managed to get the GPU and other graphics sensors working on the 5700 XT? Activity and VRAM is working but no fan speed or core temp. Any help would be appreciated. Just replaced my Vega 56 with this one and suddenly my sensor reading is gone

I'm referring to the Framebuffer patches used to configure Intel HD 4x00 graphics -- in my case, as headless. These are the ones used with WhateverGreen to get discrete and CPU graphics to work together, and come in two parts. The first renames GFX0 to IGPU in the DSDT <Patches> section, and the second sets an intel graphics platform ID. They look like so in config.plist:
XML:
                <dict>
                    <key>Comment</key>
                    <string>Intel GPU PM- Rename GFX0 to IGPU</string>
                    <key>Disabled</key>
                    <false/>
                    <key>Find</key>
                    <data>
                    R0ZYMA==
                    </data>
                    <key>Replace</key>
                    <data>

                    </data>
                </dict>
and

        <key>Properties</key>
        <dict>
            <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key>
            <dict>
                <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key>
                <data>
                BAASBA==
