Just got the update for download.

I will give it a try right now.:clap:

"Just finished the update"
All went smoothly no issues still all working ..
Hey svencux, thanks for the update. I've been checking my Sierra installation since last night, waiting for the new beta to show in updates. Good to hear you've had no issues upgrading - it's always good to hear others have had no problems, before you do the update yourself!

sooooo any support for the AMD RX480 already???
Yes, my RX480 is now recognized as 0x67df vendor id#1002. Last night on the last Sierra beta 2 it worked.

And, clover V3670 recognizes RX480 in Graphics injector and gives it the id # for you. Pretty sweet.

Load your RX480 in your system using windows first so your bios will recognize it before you try it on the beta. Mine was black screen until I booted into windows 10 and downloaded the drivers from AMD did a couple of restarts and updates too just to make sure. It works but needs help (more driver tuning)but hopefully this new update will have some.

only boots with nv_disable=1 and without DSDT. Must be something related to USB 2.0, since the motherboard connectors don't work without my patched dsdt (only the ones directly in the back). AppleALC still works.

EDIT: turns out it was not USB related; my DSDT had a Graphics patch, and it worked when I replaced it for one without that. I guess it will work again when the web drivers are updated.
