Thanks John V. I enabled Develop menu, but can't find Debug menu nor Drawing/Compositing Flags. Where I should look from?
Enable Safari's Debug Menu
  1. Launch Terminal, located at /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.
  2. Enter the following command line into Terminal. You can copy/paste the text into Terminal (tip: triple-click in the line of text below to select the entire command), or you can simply type the text as shown. The command is a single line of text, but your browser may break it into multiple lines. Be sure to enter the command as a single line in Terminal.
    1. defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1
  3. Press enter or return.
  4. Relaunch Safari. The new Debug menu will be available.

Hello everyone, I just build a Hackintosh for Photoshop on an Intel Core i7-8700, ASUS Maximus X Hero and 32GB RAM. It works like a charm with macOS 10.13.4 but some things in Photoshop are just taking like forever. I think some of the tools need GPU acceleration to work better. I'm looking for a GPU that runs out of the box and can drive 2 FullHD displays.
What I've read here I should opt for a RX 570 or RX 580, right? What do you think? :)

I'd opt for the Sapphire RX 580 8GB Pulse. Works OOB.

I can get the 4GB version for almost 50€ cheaper. Do you think the 4GB version is problematic?

Not a help thread. Please do your research.
