@EddyMac I've been wondering if I should upgrade to 10.13.4 (which is a bit more effort on my board). Is that what you are running?

How is the RX 580 for you? Do you use FCPX?

@Stork stated in several threads that this card was on Apple's list of approved cards for eGPUs started with 10.12.6, which is what I was banking on. But it is not playing out that way.

I got the Sapphire version of the RX 580 several months ago and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Not a single problem. And yes, I use FCPX as well as the Adobe Creative Suite.

My Sapphire RX 580 Pulse was OK in 10.12.6, but was ify until 10.13.5. Now, with 10.13.6, all's well. So, update to 10.13.6 if you're on an earlier version of HS.

@John V How's your experience been with the 280X?

I also just purchased a Sapphire Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB but it has had a bunch of glitchy issues in FCPX which is the reason for my Hackintosh. I have been running a pair of Sapphire 7970s but since upgrading to Sierra, they have not been as smooth - system crashes.

I had read that the RX 580 should be OOB for 10.12.6 and 10.13.x (@Stork), but it's just not working out that way.

Are you running FCPX 10.4? What version of Mac OS are you running?

Hi Heinrich,

I've purchased the 280X card but haven't had a chance to install it. Been super busy. Will try this week and get back to you.

Thanks! John

for fcpx on imac smbios with 580 you should not only upgrade to previously recommended 10.13.6 but also have to have igpu working, that solved many ppls problems
also if problems try to run through hdmi, as next step try without whatevergreen or radeondeinit

@LeoDuke, Can you confirm when use fcpx + 10.13.4, can you export video as H.264 without compressor ?... I was having problem with exporting in H.264 without iGPU and RX580 would crash instantly or freeze.
I was on High Seirra 10.13.1 & System Deifnition iMAC 17.1
