I guess i can give it a try, any one one to pitch in? :cool:
When or if you do buy one. Would you remove the metal heatsink/shroud and the thermal paste. Look at the chip underneath and see if what's written on it shows the same data as this image does.

If anyone wants to try the Yeston RX 550 you must buy the 4GB version only. The 2GB variant will not work. The specs should look like this and have a Polaris GPU core, not Lexa. The key spec is the 640 Shaders sometimes called the Stream Processors. (SP)

Now i just have to find one from a reputable source.. also it looks like this may be a down grade from my Gt1030? except this may be more compatible?

With a GT 1030 you have to use web drivers and are stuck at High Sierra. I would say that is not the most compatible option for a hackintosh. The performance of the Yeston should be comparable to a 1030. Watch the video by Phil's computer lab. The Yeston gives you double the ram, 640 shaders (SP) and performs better in games. Not a downgrade by any means.

Absolutely OOB!
Good news for everyone with SFF or smaller cases. An affordable low profile AMD card that works. Thanks for the info.
