Cool! I hope it gets figured out before Vega 10 launches.A little salt in the wound ...
Out of curiosity, I installed the current Ubuntu Studio onto a flash drive and after letting it settle in, I changed the igpu setting to pcie and booted. You may have guessed where this is going ... it booted just fine without the Intel igpu. I have not messed with it a lot, but it supports multiple monitors, though sound seems to be limited to only the hdmi port. i used the lspci command and it reports that it is using the standard amdgpu driver -- not the amdgpu-pro that AMD lists on their web-site. It boots fast too.
So it is possible to use these cards on these machines without the igpu, but getting macOS and Clover to do that remains to be done. But still a lot of progress has been done.
I can't wait for the Vega 10 cards to come out.
This is the Beta 4 12.2 9500controllerkext in iHex. It has the same pattern and volume or size as the polaris10 and Baffin support. I gotta start saving for one of these on launch day, hopefully its not over $800.
