Hi pastry and everyone.

Any issues if I were to upgrade the rx580 to 5700xt? Is there any specific brands to avoid? Is it also a plug and play card in catalina? And do I need to adjust anything under whatever green or radeon boost?

Just add the "agdpmod=pikera" boot argument and disable RadeonBoost.

I am unaware of any specific 5700 XTs to avoid. As far as I know, they all work. Be careful when choosing a card, most 5700 XTs are wider than two slots. This is a problem if you need access to the adjacent PCI-e slot.

Anybody using high speed monitors like gaming monitors? I want you know that my new dual Dell setup 2 x S2721DGF (1440p) are running both @ 165Hz which looks amazing in MacOS. Although I sold my P2715Q which was 4K it was also quite buggy in MacOS. Are there already details revealed about the RX6000s?

Has anyone tried a dual gpu setup on opencore? I'm thinking of expanding my rx580 to dual rx580 or just getting 2x 5700 xt as I need more monitor inputs.

Clover and OpenCore EFI bootloaders updated along with latest kexts.
Clearly being stupid - but where do these now get updated. I don't see them on Page 1 any more. Last I see is Update #51 (April 24, 2020).

It should be just plug-n-play, assuming you use two macOS compatible video cards.

I used your (@pastrychef) EFI (OpenCore 0,61) - added the info. (Mojave 10.14.6)
At boot I get a new message: No schema DisableLinkeditJettion.
Do you have advice how to get rid of it?

Make sure you have: config.plist > Kernel > Quarks > DisabledLinkedJettison > No
