Try not injecting intel first and see if you get RX booted. If it works look into this setup.

config (revod 1).plist Look at it and copy changes or add uuid and serial number and try it. You were injecting both intel and ATI which can cause problems, I also changed the 530 injection to SKL CRB because using it does not require injecting intel.

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.
View attachment 223887 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!
Hey guys AppleInsider just posted a link to this thread today- nice find Gigamaxx. :clap::thumbup:

The code and new KEXT files associated with drivers were found in the latest macOS beta by the Hackintosh community, on the tonymacx86 forums.

I just looked at it, I'm glad they cropped the messy desktop!

Annandtech linked it too!

A small excerpt from Glo, at Annandtech!

"And BTW. This framebuffer is linked to Trash Can Mac Pro. So somebody is at least testing hardware."

I'm glad she doesn't realize its a MSI PC Mate w/Pentium g3258 Trash barrel build! That could seriously hurt her credibility!

Kiko Antonio from BitBag: Recent data mining efforts on the newest macOS Sierra 10.12.2 developer beta revealed support for future AMD graphics processors. The said leak showcased three AMD GPU architectures that are set to be released in the coming years.

Hey guys, I have G1 RX 470 running stable on 10.12.1. I was wondering if there is any progress on temperature monitoring for the Polaris cards, because I'm afraid it would overheat. Thanks

I've run 100s of benchmarks with my RX 480 and never had a problem, the fan idles when its cooled down. There is "AutoWattman" running in the 9500controller kext or 4100kext, I've seen it and there is overheat protection which will shut down the card if temps exceed limits.

I'd rather see Tonymac go after them for it and bring in some money for RX testing cards for Florian. Florian has a real Mac Pro and no RX cards, I'd send one but it's out of country for me.
