Guys,

Do you happen to know a good mid range graphic card to drive 49 inch monitor (something like Samsung CRG9) ? I’m using my hac for productivity for the most part with occasional boot into W10 for Flight Sim. I was looking at RX 5700 , however it does look like it is discontinued and actually pretty much most of the cards (if not all by now) that are listed in the buyer's guide do seem discontinued (checked amazon). Do you know if there is any modern replacement that will work out of the box with the hac? I'm currently on 10.15.7

Really appreciate your help!
I snatched an AMD RX 5600 XT a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday morning at Newegg. Supplies of all GPUs are exhausted, but retailers are probably the best place to find a GPU. MicroCenter, CentralComputers (SF Bay Area), and similar places might be your best bet. But keep looking at Newegg, Amazon, and other online retailers as well.

Mine is the ASRock Challenger Pro RX 5600 XT. It's a triple fan card that works beautifully and silently. It's installed in my AMD Ryzentosh with B550 Vision D motherboard and running macOS 11.3 public beta. The RX 5000 cards are compatible with Catalina as well (since about 10.15.2).

Well then @CaseySJ name your poison. I'd be interested to know your favorite adult beverage. Mine happens to be Bumbu Rum on the rocks. :)
You won't like my answer, but I have a mild weakness for what the Italians call 'acqua minerale con gas'. My alcohol consumption has always been extremely low, but has dwindled to virtually nothing.

Too funny. In that realm, after spending many years working in Germany, my preference is Gerolsteiner Sprudel Mineralwasser. It's not easy to find in the states, but well worth searching for.

I like San Benedetto Oligo Minerale Leggermente frizzante when I am in Italy. Eleonore Cristaline when in Normandy. Bar-Le-Duc Bruisend when at home.

All: If you are interested in running a Stats/Sensor Monitor in your case (or on your desk), definitely take a look at this display on AliExpress. Its a 9.8" wide 1920x480 IPD LCD with HDMI input and 5v USB power. I just purchased the one in the black metal case at $105 USD. Yeah, it's a little expensive just for stats, but it looks really cool and will show up as a second display. I plan to mount it in the front of my new Lian-Li 011 Dynamic case. Pictures to follow once it arrives from China. o_O

Please see the bottom half of this page, namely DRM Compatibility on macOS 11:

Hi @CaseySJ
Thank you, I had a look at that but don't understand how I am supposed to test / set those preferences or even where to set them. If it states:
  • WhateverGreen Shiki functionality is not planned for inclusion for macOS 11
Does this mean I should remove my Shikigva=80 from the NVRAM setting in OCC if it is no longer utilized anymore?

Please have a look at this post, which I’ll add to Quick Reference spoiler soon.

Looking forward to your follow-up. Will you use iStatistica Pro on this monitor? I assume it will be able to render a good view on the 1920x480 panel.
