A well-known Hackintosh blogger with the pseudonym Piker Alpha (or pikera) developed this particular patch. Without it, AMD 5000 and 6000 series GPUs will not turn on in macOS. AGDP refers to Apple Graphics Display Policy. So the patch is enabled with the boot argumentThank you! Appreciate the quick reply. What does agdpmod=pikera do in our case? I googled around a bit and got this:
I guess OSX doesn't like the 5700 xt as much as the 580?
- Renames board-id to board-ix effectively disabling boardID checks, this is based off of Pike.R.A's work here(opens new window)
- This is also required for all Navi GPUs due to the difference in framework with the x6000 drivers
agdpmod=pikera. Ironically, we believe he now works at Apple.
