Thank you kindly for the updates, guessing the side car solely relies on integrated graphics rather than dedicated one
Not sure. I have Airplay working which is a requirement of Sidecar.

strange indeed, cause AMD RX card should be legit and should give access to sidecar but sadly only CPU graphics working with sidecar
Since I game in Windows, I needed to use a GPU other than my GTX 1080 for macOS > High Sierra. I have to have iGPU and GPU enabled in BIOS for Thunderbolt Hot-Plug to work as well. I do have Airplay working and my iPad can connect via Bluetooth which both are required for Sidecar to work, along with a compatible smbios.

I haven't looked into it enough though.

thanks for feedback, after much trial and error i got the sidecar working with my discrete card kinda. I've attached the config.plist if you are interested.
I see your SMBIOS is for a 2019 iMac. Otherwise, don't see anything that sticks out in your config. I am not sure that injecting ig-platform-id is helping it to work either way.

Also keep in mind, the iPad has to be one of the following:
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 11-inch iPad Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • 6th generation or later iPad or later
  • iPad mini (5th generation)
  • 3rd generation iPad Air
My iPad is 5th generation, so it's not going to work.

Yeah, i got the iPad Pro 12.9 and most likely that ig-platform-id works better with that smbios since its skylake processor

Just tested with my daughter's 6th generation iPad and Sidecar worked.
