    Yes, I also think thunderbolt's work is normal. I have audio for display, brightness adjustment, microphone

    I finally get working LG5K Display.
    Configuration with GC-ALPINE, 2 DP ports and RADEON RX580 4GB.

    Operating System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6, no IGPU
    Motherboard: GA-270X-UD5
    Graphics Card: Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon Rx580 4gb

    1] install Lilu and whatevergreen.kext. Reboot
    2] in clover section under Graphics set as fb Dayman and put video ports (Have 5 ports:2dp,2hdmi and 1 dvi but I set 4 (so appears one monitor instead of two, but not 5k full.). Reboot
    3] create custom resolution in SwitchrRes to 5120x2880. Apply experimental and voila: system active

    I don't know why my RX580 is recognized as 480 after launch Whatevername.app

    This is great, I grabbed an RX580, but I am getting a black screen on boot I have both of those kexts (Lilu & WhateverGreen) in there, any feedback on why that might be? I did switch from an NVIDIA card so maybe that caused the issue?

    Okay so I ditched all my NVDA* files in /S/L/E and now I can boot in just fine, but I am getting this in the System Report:

    Any tips on how to move from here? The card is an RX 580, thanks!

    It seems like only 5K 40HZ? It should be 60HZ, that's normal

    Agreed. 5K 40 Hz is only using one DisplayPort stream. It should be 5K 60 Hz which requires two DisplayPort streams.

    I am a bit unsure of how I accomplished this, but I now have an RX 580 running off of one GC-Alpine Ridge card on my Z170X-Ultra Gaming doing what appears to be full 5k pixel doubled on my LG 5k monitor. Here are some screen shots:

    Let me know if you need more info, hope this helps someone, thanks!

    Thank you very much, my friend. Thank you for your patient help and many useful suggestions. I think I got the 5K 60hz.
    Finally, thank you very much.....

    For confirmation, you're both missing the most important screenshot - the timing information when you double click the current resolution in SwitchResX.
