The slow pace is fine, considering virtually no one is able to find these cards to buy yet.
I've written self bot for checking stock that let me buy this one at friday (4.12) arrived monday.

I currently have one in my possession but don’t plan on installing the betas. I’ll be testing as soon as the next Big Sur update is available. (I’m sure we’ll have news sooner than that from the beta testers)

Just finished installing. Still no accelleration.
So it’s booting at least? Just not using the card to it’s full potential? Debating if I want to go ahead and install mine or wait for a bit. I have actual work (Youtube) I have to do on MacOS

I do plenty of after effects and premiere pro with the igpu of i9 10900k. Just remember to choose software rendering and you are good. And like Ploddles say, it works perfect in windows already.

You can have more than 1 graphics cards installed. If necessary you could also add an SSDT to disable the 6800 whilst in macOS

Damn. Obviously we'll be waiting until 11.2 then. Which I guess won't be until Jan :(

I wouldn't call it usable for anything. UI is laggy and horrible. It'll almost certainly break sleep. Use any other GPU you have, and if you want it installed for Windows, disable it with an SSDT or -wegnoegpu - SSDT is better as with -wegnoegpu, sleep will likely not still not work.

Public Beta of the 11.1 RC1 has been released. I don't have Big Navi on hand to test (mine is in the mail). Can someone test and report back? Would seem that perhaps support might not come in this release but possibly in 11.2?

Meanwhile once mine shows up, I'm going to game... Cyberpunk has my name on it.
