Hi on my real Mac Pro 5,1 2010 running 10.12.6. I just installed a Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 4GB version. No Boot screen. Login screen works as normal. Is recognised as "AMD R9 xxx 4096 MB" Metal is Supported, All resolutions over DP work on my 27" Dell Screen (No Audio over DP yet). Lux Bench Score 13794 - Geekbench 4 OpenCL test 132695. Blows the original 5770 away. System Profile can't display PCI tab as says error gathering information. Am going to download and test 10.13 beta soon. All 36 GPU units are recognised but no idea if the PCIE bus is running at half 2.5 or full 5G link speed.

**Update macOS High Sierra Beta - PCI profile is now readable and confirms 2.5 Link Speed. Card is still recognised as a "AMD R9 xxx" but all benchmark apps show "RX 580 Compute Engine"

Let me guess, it is only shown as "supported" but not as Metal v2 right? Same for me using the exact same card :/

Good news to all X99 users! RX580 are now finally working without a helper card.

Just install the latest version of Clover, Lilu & WhateverGreen kext.

Tested on Sierra 10.12.6 & High Sierra 10.13

Got a question. I have the GTX 1070 and running High Sierra. I am using a lot FCPX for 4K video editing as well as Lightroom.

Would it make sense to change for the RX580? Would it give me a lot better performance, especially on FPCX?

Thanks!

My current work to get Asus x99-A with 5960X for 10.12.6, Gigabyte Aorus RX 580 works with Lilu and WhateverGreen in Clover\Kext\Other. BUT (BIG BUT) screen started shaking as i preview thru photos, random crashes. This card came out of Amazon warehouse deal under very good condition, dunno if it was fooled around. FCPX without any library, files crashed.

This X99A XFX 6870 Black Edition top DVI only was fine for FCPX.

Same here. Ditched my 1070 for the RX 580 and the difference is huge.
