    The boot times / shutdown times are helped along by the Intel HD4600 accelerator. Since the AMD card has to be set more as a secondary card, it is not able to lend its accelerator to that process.

    The sleep issue has been a proverbial thorn in the side for some time now in the Clover world. [By the way, the current work to get the IGPU booting problem solved is also working on that one. Some systems are able to have it others are not. ???

    That is mine. In Clover, I have the option dart=0 set, others need the darkwake option set. Others do not get any choice. ???


    BTW, macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Public Beta Five (16C60b) is available. The relevant AMD 9500 Controller and 4100 kext have been updated to version 1.48.15, but audio is still horrifically bad.

    - FCPX 10.3 crashes immediately upon opening, as before (expected).

    search solution, with Inject Intel = No , working for me

    Check this out. Polaris 12, Polaris 10XT2 (Crossfire card?) and Vega 10 of course. 9500Controller kext just got a whole lot bigger. There is a new 0x687F.C. card that benchmarked just under a 1080 rumored to be Vega 10 or RX 490 on the intraweb.
    XT2.png Polaris 10 XT2 sounds like a R9 295X card minus 300 watts?

    Update: WCCFwitech just used this graphic in a new article posted 12/7/16 about Vega 10, Polaris 10XT2, and P12. It"s credited as a leak, lol!

    Think it also sheds a few $$$ in the making? :)

    According to AMD's previous naming scheme it sounds more like a refreshed Polaris 10 to me. They did the same with HD 7950 and HD 7970 back in the days (Tahiti Pro2 and Tahiti XT2), which ended up in the "Gigahertz Editions" (and later in the R9 rebadges). Don't know if it even was a different design, or just refined process.

    Sounds way more realistical to me than a 2x P10 GPU. I hope AMD won't make this one, would look pretty desperate.

    Nice find btw! ;)

    Yeah, I should have worded it better, it looks like a dual gpu card not a crossfire card, they already crossfire in windows. They should've done this months ago but if it works and we get 1070 - 1080 performance levels that would be sweet, minus the 10% igpu loss, of course, we wouldn't have to worry about updates and drivers going out. If it's $400-$450 it will be interesting, it if it's in the $500-$600 range meh! It's good that it looks like P10XT2, and Vega 10 are seperate cards, but never put it past AMD to put out a power hungry almost close enough competitor card for the same price point.

    OS X can't make full use of dual GPU boards, so it's not a real alternative for us. It would accelerate OpenCL applications (just like two separate GPUs do), but OpenGL will be stuck at single GPU speed.

    I rather think that Ellesmere XT2 thing is "just" going to be standard P10 on a refreshed process (-> better efficiency and/or higher clock rates). RX 485 or something like that.

    Have you solved the FcpX
    Did you solve the FCPX problem? I just installed a R9 280X and faced the same problem, but I updated to 10.3.1 and solved the problem, try it if you haven't already. My biggest problem is that with the new 280X card I get black screen after sleep. Since you were using a similar card, is there any solution or not to bother? Are you having the same problem with the 480X?
