Still in 10.12.1. Should i upgrade to 10.12.2 or 10.12.3 public beta 1? Any performance or other improvement for RX480?

10.12.2 seems more solid (beyond the placebo effect) and you do get some security fixes. The AMD 9500 controller and 4100 kext have had several updates beyond the ones in 10.12.1 as well. You might be able to use this most recent ellesmere patching and see improvements for your RX 480.

I would like to know what effect the controller patch will have on my 460 that is using only the pcie slot to power it. Will it allow the card to exceed the 75W limit?

I am also curious about this ... I tried the first part and got the promised 36 compute units along with a slight increase in Luxmark scores, a nice enough increase in Unigine's Valley test score, no real difference in Unigine's' Heaven test score.

When I added in the controller part, the Heaven test score was unchanged, but the Valley test score as well as the Luxmark score actually dropped. I intend to try this one again next week.

Thanks to all the forum members here and specially @Gigamaxx, i got RX 480 and everything working now. i am using FCPX 10.2.2 without any issue right now. and BRUCEx score is around 18 sec. One slight problem, whenever i move mouse on application stack in the dock it stutters a bit, is that a graphics glitch?
And i am getting 4k at 60Hz on DP but only 30Hz on HDMI, on windows i get 60 with HDMI.

But anyway thank you all for the help.
