This may be useful or just tell you some information about your monitor / av equipment.
It is a ruby script I extended based on:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Display_Identification_Data

Put it on your desktop, remove the .zip ending (it is NOT zipped, the file uploader will not load certain file types.).

Open Terminal and navigate to your desktop using the command 'cd ~/Desktop' (without the quote marks) and press the return key.
(*This next part may or may not be needed, it will not hurt to go ahead and do it anyway.)
Then set the execute permission for the script by typing in the command 'chmod +x edid_to_eld.rb' [without using the ' marks] and then press return. Then type 'ls -la' (no quote marks) and press return. The file listing should have three x-(es) by this file's
name.

Then type the command 'ruby edid_to_eld.rb' [again, without the ' mark] and press return.

You should get a lot of information about the resolutions your monitor supports as well as the audio capabilities of your monitor. In this case, monitor also means connected av receivers.

All of the usual disclaimers and restrictions apply.

Did you ever remember how you got audio for your RX 460 working?

Just look what i found in the latest AppleGMUXDriver.kext:

It may be possible, that soon we will have a new AMDRadeonX4150.kext for AMD RX Accelleration. You may make your own thoughts about it.

PS:AppleMUXControll will be only used by Apples Laptopseries to use IntelGFX as boot GFX and switch to dedicated GFX after reaching the desktop. I did some tests over easter to make it work with Hackintosh... but failed. No luck to make it work, even
with DSDT-edits. GMUX will be seen by IORegistryExplorer, but kext never gets loaded:
Nice find, another kext to be added. X4150, I wonder if the 9510, will get a brother as well. It will be interesting to see if the Vega/fury cards get split off due to HBM memory scheme and added to a new kext set. I noticed before that the memory schemes in 9500 controller for the graphics were listed as ddr3, ddr4, gddr5 and HBM but not HBM2.

Hello guys, I can safely say that RX 580 are working under 10.12.4.. I just got it today, and was a straight swap, nothing else to be done.. I'd like to say that I only use clover patches and I don't have the 9510 patch for renaming

I'd also like to add pictures of the Luxmark benchmark result, which are crap :(

macOS Sierra 10.12.5 Public Beta v4 (16F67a) is available.

The 9510 controller and 4100 kext are at version 1.51.8 .
The info is <string>0x67E01002 0x67FF1002 0x67EF1002</string>

Commenting on the audio is well, ..., still just shrieking about walloping that proverbial perished equine.

Regarding audio! I have managed to achieve audio through hdmi with a ssdt for the pci detection + audio, but the audio I hear is, besides low quality, slowed down...

Anything I hear is slowed down.. Is so weird.. I don't know if you guys have the same issue or is just terrible quality..

That is pretty much where we are. There are various ways to get the sound controls to show up in the Sound Preferences pane, but getting the audio correct is like chasing leprechauns riding unicorns.

Various folks have said that the problem is the way Apple has written the AMD 95nn Controller(s) and the 4100 kext. (They) are not properly interlacing the audio signal in with the video signal to send it out to the attached equipment.

You mention the audio you are hearing via your HDMI connection is slowed down. Is your connection to a monitor or to an av receiver? Also, how many devices are connected to your card and turned on at the same time?

Wish we'd have the same situation on .4 like with the golden master .3. As far as i red there still some problems left.
But i already have an application that needs .4 and won't run on .3, so i'm really looking forward for a fully functional .4
