Wait... what!?. I'm still waiting for confirmation from Nootinc to see if I have full acceleration with AMD Radeon Graphics, but so far so good. There have been some glitches and it struggles under load, NootedRed is very much a work in progress and shouldn't be used as a daily driver at the moment. I haven't seen anything to suggest it's not worth following, I'm impressed.
I read that a clean installation using NootedRed isn't advisable yet, if you have a spare installation of Ventura on another drive I suggest using that, we're going to concentrate on the EFI. I paired my 4600G with a ASUS Prime A320I-K motherboard which has a HDMI and DP port, I'm connected to a Hp 27f monitor via DP to HDMI cable.
BIOS settings to be aware of for NootedRed, minimum VRAM is 512MB, 1 GB is recommended I had 4 GB available
for the UMA Frame Buffer and selected it. The other is to disable CSM or Legacy mode.
We want to make sure everything is up to date in our EFI, your first visit should be the AMD-OSX AMD_Vanilla GitHub page and download the latest patches. I use ProperTree to edit my plist, but you can use whatever you're comfortable with. Open the downloaded plist, select 'Patch' and copy. Now open your working EF, navigate to the Kernel section and paste, the new patches will now be in your EFI!. Remember to enter your CPU core count, not the thread count.
If you're using RestrictEvents in your EFI like me then add 'revblock=media' to your boot args, I noticed improved visual performance in Ventura.
Now we want the NootedRed.kext to add to our EFI, you can download from the link below, click actions and click the latest available version, on the next page click on Artifacts to download. Inside the folder you will see the NootedRed.kext which you can copy to your EFI folder. Now you can remove the WhateverGreen.kext or just disable it. Your EFI is now ready.

I've been watching this CPU for the past couple of weeks, because of progress with NootedRed, can I get full acceleration in macOS?. https://github.com/NootInc/NootedRed
