tempted by AMD.....
in fact I have an old and card somewhere.. I may spin it up.... wondering if I could run both, yet have never found a way to use bath cards at the same time..... is it even possible?
Check the following thread in the graphics forum:
Windows does not allow two different graphics cards to be used (AMD and Nvidia) at the same time but macOS does. The issue for graphics dependent applications is how do you select the AMD or Nvidia card for the application. You cannot as Apple hasn't needed to implement this for any of its hardware and that means that you will often end up with the wrong card working. While it is possible to reboot and disable nvidia drivers for FCPX and you may be able to do something to prevent the AMD card from working , but this is all a lot of inconvenience which is far from practical.
FCPX will run really well with an AMD RX560 card - much better than a GTX 1080Ti and you will likely see little difference between a GTX660 and a RX560 for Adobe. If you want to improve perfomance in both applications then step up to the Sapphire Pulse RX580 8GB -Scan have these on backorder for £399, but on Amazon;
Here is a list of the cards that Apple now officially support for High Sierra 10.13.4
If you want a new all rounder card that is affordable and works right now in macOS 10.13.4 really well in FCPX and could be used as a spare backup card in the future that is macOS compatible then the RX560 is the only one that really makes any sense for people using FCPX and Abobe applications.
