So far, the only comprehensive list of current external video cards that supposedly run on a TB3 enabled Mac is located on the Sonnet website akin to their newest eGPU product. Sonnet claims that all the listed cards have drivers in High Sierra. It's only my guess that a hackintosh running HS should be able to run any of the listed cards yet it's unknown whether particular cards have regular Mac bootup screen capability or not.does AMD RX550 working correctly in high sierra? I mean there is an issue with amd gpus -- I read it on more site -- that they boot only with black screen.
Great find, yummymac! Tech Note 2, which is on the Tech Spec page, has the insight into the support of the AMD RX graphics cards:...

Note: my underline.Support for select external AMD Graphics cards on macOS High Sierra will be officially beta until spring 2018. Currently, internal video is not accelerated by an external graphics card. Sonnet has organized what we consider to be the most accurate of the information available in this installation guide. Note that you may not be able to obtain support from Apple or AMD for external graphics under macOS at this time. If you have any issues using any Sonnet product, please contact Sonnet customer service at email@example.com
Hi, did you come further using RX 550 in Sierra / HS?
As known there is no dev ID 699F in the AMD drivers. Did you tried to patch drivers by adding that dev id in drivers used by already working RX 560 ?
I use NV GT 1030m works good and fast for only 30 Watt! Wanted to try the 50 Watt RX 550 - they known working RX 560 is to much watt (80+) for my usage..
Did it work OOB? I just got a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 that I can't get past the "gIOScreenLockState" screen so I'm going to take it back.I picked up a Gigabyte RX550 2gb model and will try tonight. I’ll reply with results if it will work in either High Sierra or Sierra with kext edits if needed.

This is slightly off topic for this RX 560 thread. I have a Sapphire RX 580 Pulse 8GB card running OOB in Sierra 10.12.6 and HS 10.13.1. It is a AMD Reference Deign card (1 DVI, 2 HDMI and 2 DP connectors) which Apple is using in their eGPU peripheral sold only to developers. The Mac Pro users, at the MacRumor's Mac Pro forum section, have documented that it works in the cMPs (classic Mac Pros). That's the good news.
Those same Mac Pro users have also stated the Vega cards work in 10.13.2 Beta releases but are still immature. So, stay tune for more mature releases of HS.
BTW, that above Tech Note had me thinking that's the time of the forecasted release of the new Mac Pro. So, that's about the time frame for the HS 10.13.4/5/6 release.
I'm new at the AMD graphics card thing, too. But, I do know that if you have your config.plist set up correctly with the RadeonDeInit = true, then you don't need Lilu & whatevergreen kexts, period. Removed those two kexts from both places. (In the future, put the kexts in only one place. I recommend /L/E/ as it was designed by Apple to be the location for non Apple kexts. This is where MultiBeast puts the kexts.)Stork,
I may need your help. I've tried both a GeForce GTX 1050 and a Radeon RX 560 and I had the same exact results - "gIOScreenLockState" screen.
Currently have the AMD Radeon RX 560.
I have the WhateverGreen.kext and Lilu.kext in both places (EFI and /L/E).
I checked the Radeon DeInit checked.
Thanks...I will try that and let you know how it works out for me tomorrow. Thanks for the fast reply.I'm new at the AMD graphics card thing, too.
