- HP Elite X2 G2
I have the MSI RX460. Works without problem. It also is reported as R9xxx.
I do a lot of video editing. It is 80% of my job and so I figured the 780ti would haul through 4k video. Well It never has and although it should be an amazing video editing card it just isn't on OS X no matter what anyone tells me. So I more recently sold it and "Upgraded" to a GTX 980. Mostly because of all the hype everyone has over how good the 970 and 980 are in OS X. Yes they are easy to get working and Yes Nvidia is awesome to quickly come out with new drivers. But the 980 still struggled with 4k video in OSX. Im not a noob. I did a fresh install of OS X and clover. Still no improvement. So for kicks I decided to drop in an AMD card. I found an HD 7970 on craigslist for $120. HOLY CRAP! I can't believe what a difference it makes. Smooth OS X UI. Shreds 4K video editing.
Well, actually it is, according to HWMonitor, but just not showing in About this Mac and System Report. USB 3.0 is only working on one of two front panel ports and not at all on any of the rear panel mobo ports, not working at all. USB 2.0 rear ports are working. I also still can't sign in to the Apple App Store with the "Unexpected error… computer could not be verified," message. I don't think any of this is related to the R9 card though.i7-4790K CPU isn't boosting past 4K.
