At what point in the year, if any, should we give up waiting and just replace the video card?

Any guesses? Thoughts?

I lost all hope for Nvidia when they couldn't get the UI lag fixed from 10.13.0-10.13.3 and gave no comments on whether they were even working on the problem. That was almost a year ago. My Vega 56 and RX 560 have both been buttery smooth.

Unfortunately I am not about to give up my Nvidia card. I do a lot of gaming so I would prefer to stick to Nvidia. As far as the Mac goes, it is starting to get really annoying. I've been looking for a practical way to use multiple cards, but with my multi-monitor setup it isn't so easy.

I am honestly more likely to just go back to being a Windows user, stick to High Sierra for the foreseeable future, or buy a Mac mini (not looking forward to that option).

I just wish there was some actual work around other than buying AMD cards.

It's not the solution but I use dual boot system: OS X (with iGPU) and Win10 with NVIDIA. The last one is only for gaming.

It's not the solution if you would like to render something but what to do man :( I feel bad when tried to use Adobe AE in Windows

I don't know about AfterEffects, but Adobe Premiere Pro works great in my Hackintosh, with the Radeon RX580 8GB. When color grading or during effects/transitions and during exports, the AMD card is used in full in macOS. I'm getting almost realtime exports, and I have no lag during playback (talking about Full resolution, without proxies, 4K drone videos).

I don't game so I can't speak for that, but switching to AMD was the best thing I've done for my Hackintosh. I don't even use Windows anymore for my work (or for any other reason for that matter).

It feels great not having to worry about buggy drivers (or non-existent) with every single update.

It's not about performance at all. I'm sure there are almost the same gpu from both manufacturers.
It's about few hundred bucks :)

I wish it was as simple as switching to AMD in my case. Unfortunately I'd need a half height and single slot card to fit my tiny case. Full height single slot will fit in a pinch, but airflow is negatively affected making the system run hot and loud.

I have looked at compatible AMD cards, but I haven't seen one fitting the above requirements that would also be an upgrade on my GT710. Annoyingly, I have just sitting on my desk a half height/single slot GT 1030 that'd be so perfect for this build if ever a driver gets released.

This is why for work I always get the huge ATX cases / motherboards. I can always upgrade to any card I want (not to mention I have a gozillion SATA/SSD/M.2 drives connected as well).

I don't know, I was never attracted to small factor PCs. For me it's either a laptop or a big tower.

How is the performance of that card? Have you run any GPU benchmarks with it? Thanks.
