It is in particular for the Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64. Other Vegas 64 might need some adaptation especially in terms of the implemented load table.

What do you mean by registering it in DSDT?
I use dsdt.
Sapphire Radeon Rx Vega 64 DirectX 12 21275-03-20G 8 GB 2048-Bit HBM2 - this is what I ordered, will I need an adaptation?

Well at least you will need whatevergreen. Else you will have to see if you need the Vega64 SSDT in addition.

Thank you. Been waiting for your update before I updated anything. Have a good day.

Update: Updated to 10.14.2 using the Combo Updater and everything went smoothly. Rebooted, applied the above performance patch, rebooted once again and back to normal routine. :clap:

I recently bought the RX 580 to test things out. Doesn't work all that great with anything H264. No native H264/HEVC encoding or decoding in Mojave. I have found a buyer for the card and plan to get the Vega 56/64.

Would you be, or someone else on this thread, please confirm that HEVC and H264 encoding/decoding works natively in 10.14.1 and/or 10.14.2. VideoProc has a settings screen that shows this information inside a GUI.

Similarly, if I got a Vega 56 card, do you have instructions on how I can adapt your Vega64 SSDT for the same? Or would it be completely different?

Thank you.

1.) See post #723
2.) There are already SSDTs for Frontier, Vega 64, Vega 56, RX 580 and RX 560 in the Github repository.

Regarding 1: I should keep the SSDT-X99-RX580.aml from your repo while installing the kext from Post 723, correct?

I never noticed the Vega 56 SSDT. My bad. Thank you.

No idea what this kext actually does.. you have to investigate the kext in order to see if it collides of conflicts with the SSDT.. However, SSDT-X299-RX580.aml does not implement any load-table, thus it should be largely resistent against the kext.
