I gave up and changed my VGA to GTX 1050 ti. Now everything works 100% ok.

I was thinking anyway to buy a GTX 1080 Ti, to make of use my 4K TV... will a setup like this work as expected with High Sierra?

how is HD4000/4600 perform? I heard this issue doesn't exist who use intel HD graphic cards.

Indeed, I completely removed my 660 card from the motherboard (I didn't have any luck when it was connected), added inject intel vga in clover and it worked. The Desktop was as I was used to, no surprises there. Everythin works smoothly.
I also had the nerve to check on a game, especially DOTA 2. The performance was a joke, but it was something.

I tried the GTX 1050 ti and while it worked great, I didn't like being tied to the nvidia drivers (no native support.. have to wait for drivers to be available before you can update os releases).

The AMD RX 560 & 580 cards are natively supported since 10.12.6 (they are used in the new 2017 iMacs). This site seems to be anti-Radeon, but if you are building a mac only machine (not dual booting to windows) I'd recommend taking a look at the 560 & 580 cards. (And check out some of the other sites that recommend the AMD over the nVidias :D )

Just my .002c..

Thanks for reply!! Finally I decide to give up and order a PowerColor AXRX 580 RedDevil 8G video card. It was approved to be compatible with 10.13 and theoretically further updates. For the possible additional power consumption, I also order a 750W Corsair power supply to swap my present 500W one.

Vega Frontier or Vega 64 is another choice, but it is very expensive now and I would wait a year or two to see it cheaper. Compared to RX580 and nVidia cards, the price of Vega cards is an arm and a leg, but they are not so excellent as their prices :|

Hello gentleman, I found this thread because I have experienced the same problem, this is my system:

iMac 27" Late 2012 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB (it is not a hackintosh or modified in any way)

On sierra everything was perfect (no glitches)
On high sierra graphical glitches and random system crash (I also run some games and glitches are everywhere)

If I boot from USB with sierra installed everything works again perfectly.

So I think it is related to a high sierra kext/driver and not the hackintosh itself.

Is anyone experiencing the same issue as me? I have updated to 10.13.1 and the issue remains.

I think the problem with the glitches is the 660 card, I have a 650 Ti working perfectly on High Sierra 10.13.1 (No nVidia Web Drivers installed)
