Hi sunnyj,
I have the same MB , 27-6700 and now AMD RX 590 limited edition. ( to replace a GTX 1060 )
Im still on High sierra and getting really low open CL scores etc. In Luxmark OpenCL GPUs 4292.
Do you think this will improve when I update to Mojave ?
And when you say" Super happy with switching to AMD and enabling quick sync". Where do you enable quick sync ?
Thank you

My open CL score went from 111 on a GTX 970 (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-ga-z170x-ud5-i7-6700k-evga-gtx970-skylake-imac-17-1.204813/) to 118 with a RX 590 (#29).

quick sync has also helped the performance when scrubbing the timeline in premiere pro with compressed (h.264 ect) footage

My testing with the card required Mojave for best results. There was a huge difference in the drivers. Mojave is a must for this card I recommend you upgrade. High Sierra testing was sluggish and very poor benches. About half of what Mojave was getting.

Hi Gigamax,
I did a clean install of Mojave 10.14.3 and then used migration assistant to restore.
All good, much better bench marks.
In Bios switched on Internal Graphics.
Updated WEG and now all working well.

Thank you.
