I had a few problems updating to 10.14.1 with my config.. so I am glad that 10.14.2 just went smooth sailing.

I am pretty sure if I went from 10.14.0 straight to 10.14.2 I would have had the same problems going to 10.14.1.

Which means, you should be good to go, if you have 10.14.1 running smoothly ;-) (no garantees!)

What brand of Vega 64 are you running. The world seems to have run out of Sapphire Nitro+ versions.

I reinstall the realtek alc892 driver using MultiBeast 10.4.0 - High Sierra. Everything is working.

Both cards gave me smooth experience, even running only with the Intel HD 630 was also smooth (and was still able to do 4K video editing with color grading in Premiere Pro, although slower playbacks and exports of course).

Overall I feel the RX 580 was totally worth it, and that the “AMDs don’t work with Adobe products” is an absolute myth. I’ve noticed huge difference in performance. Will probably not go back to an Nvidia again. You will need the Lilu and WhateverGreen kexts though, preferably even on the Installer thumb drive (in Kexts/Other) folder should you need to clean install at some point. It can help prevent the black screen during installation.

The only reason I would recommend an Nvidia instead of an AMD, is if you are using Adobe Premiere in Windows, but even then: Windows and Premiere Pro suck... big time! For some stupid reason, Premiere Pro in Windows uses the on-board Intel graphics for rendering, color grading, playback and exporting, and I did tests with the Nvidia and then the AMD card, both are only used at max 15% of their power, even when I completely disabled the HD630!

In macOS, I get 100% usage! I hate Windows so bad!
Thanks for giving a detailed review! I only use my hackintosh as a mac so I definitely don’t need an Nvidia. I hate windows so much. I’m only using the 660 because I had it literally laying around my house. Probably gonna grab a rx580 this weekend.

I just switched from the GTX 970 which was hardly being utilized by Premiere Pro, etc. Now I have the RX 590, and I see Premiere utilizing the memory and processor all the time now with Metal.

Why is that?
Just a touch of humor about most posts here coming from RX 580 owners, a narrowing of graphic cards I've never seen in a general thread before, and the terrific lapse of NVIDIA for not issuing a working web driver for their 9 or 10 series cards at least (the hang-up might be the ray tracing of the 20 series)--not a knock on Apple, since this looks square on NVIDIA. If they haven't issued the web driver when Navi RX 3080 comes out, I'll switch then. The 14.2 update shows the worth of switching to AMD.
