Anyone experiencing Wifi Drop off intermittently? I am using Big Sur 11.4, AirportItlwm v 1.3 stable. Waking up from sleep also not automatically connect to Wifi, I have to manually click to reconnect.
It's best to use Broadcom-based WiFi/BT module such as Fenvi FV-T919. OpenIntelWireless drivers are still in active development. Please report problems directly to the OpenIntelWireless developers on their GitHub page.

Looks like we have a solution/workaround for the XTXH variant of the Radeon 6000 series GPUs now! So no worries.
So I'm trying to follow along but these guys are a bit advanced. I've mostly used your packages to get things up and running...

I downloaded gfxutil-1.81b-RELEASE and ran it on my hackintosh:
Code:
/*
iMac2020 ~ % /gfxutil-1.81b-RELEASE/gfxutil | grep GFX
03:00.0 1002:731f /PCI0@0/PEG0@1/PEGP@0/pci-bridge@0/GFX0@0 = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

This result is with my current 5700 in the Main PCI port. I plan on using this port for my 6900 as well. Is this a valid address to use for the "SSDT-BRG0.dsl"?

Seems the stock SSDT linked may work out of the box as the addresses look the same. Can you please confirm?
Code:
/*
 * This table provides an example of creating a missing ACPI device
 * to ensure early DeviceProperty application. In this example
 * a GPU device is created for a platform having an extra PCI
 * bridge in the path - PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.BRG0.GFX0:
 * PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)
 * Such tables are particularly relevant for macOS 11.0 and newer.
 */

DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 2, "ACDT", "BRG0", 0x00000000)
{
    External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP, DeviceObj)

    Scope (\_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP)
    {
        /*
         * This is a PCI bridge device present on PEGP.
         * Normally seen as pci-bridge in I/O Registry.
         */
        Device (BRG0)
        {
            Name (_ADR, Zero)

            /*
             * This is an actual GPU device present on the bridge.
             * Normally seen as display in I/O Registry.
             */
            Device (GFX0)
            {
                Name (_ADR, Zero)  // _ADR: Address
            }
        }
    }
}

Would I then just add the SSDT to this area in OC Configurator and enable. It has a *.dsl extension and not *.aml so wasn't sure?

Then I need a nightly build of the latest WheteverGreen and all should be good?

Thanks in advance @CaseySJ, sorry about the newbie questions...

I also found this on Techpowerup:


Says the card is Navi 21
w/
GPU VariantNavi 21 XTX
(215-121000167)

It is my understanding the XTX chips will work but XTX(H) chips will not. Is it possible I may have to do nothing and the card will work with the current EFI Folder?

No no, you don’t have to follow that guide. There’s nothing you need to do right now. Chances are high that your particular 6900 XT will NOT need this. I provided that link just in case your card fails to be recognized by macOS.

So I have the new Sapphire NITRO+ AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT SE card. I installed the card, but I cant even get the machine to post. I have a EVGA Gold 850w power supply. I have the 2 - 8 pin power connectors and 1 - 6 pin power connector all going to the card. Each with their own wire coming from the power supply. I boot and nothing. I just sit and look at black.

Throw back in the 5700 and all boots and works as normal. Am I missing something here? What dumb mistake have I forgotten?? Please help.

  • Have you done a CMOS Reset and configured BIOS again, starting with F7 (Load Optimized Defaults)?
  • Some folks have stated that the latest BIOS version is necessary. If CMOS Reset does not help, please try installing newest BIOS, but keep Resizable BAR Support turned off.
    • Latest BIOS may present problems with Thunderbolt, but let's tackle one problem at a time...

I have not done a CMOS reset I was dreading doing all the settings again. I had some bad luck with the f20 a while back but maybe there is a newer better bios out now. I'll give both these a shot. Thanks for all your help @CaseySJ... I don't know where Id be without you on the other side of this keyboard. I have a video call in 30min so I'll have to wait till after that but will report back shortly afterwards.

I got the machine to post now. CMOS reset was all it seemed to need. With that said I have 2 old 24" LED Cinema Displays that Ive been using with a mini display connector on each. I have an adapter that turns them into regular display port. Unfortunately these monitors will not work on boot. If I plug an HDMI monitor in and then plug them in once in OSX is fully booted they work, but thats the only way I can get these displays rocking. You have any thoughts on how to salvage the old monitors? I thought maybe Id throw the 5700 back in and try running both cards, however there just isn't enough room. the 5700 will literally be on top of the 6900 fans. Seems like an accident waiting to happen. Only thing I can think of doing is going the eGPU route for the 6900 and using it for rendering only. Im open to ideas here though.

Thanks Again!
