@trs96 Sorry to deviate from actual topic, do you have recommendation for low profile AMD gpus (with two display ports) for small form factor PCs. Any thing lower than $200 is good but cheaper is better.

You can search Ebay for a lower price, this is the first that came up for me. The pic shows low profile but the seller says high profile so check on that with the seller.

@trs96 Thanks a lot for the recommendation. Do you know if the WX 2100 and WX 3100 compatible with Mac?
I see one guy tested the WX 4100 and confirmed it's fully working but information about WX 2100/3100 is very scarce.

Everything I've read about WX cards says that 2100/3100 are not supported. If you can't afford the 4100 go with a low profile RX 560 by MSI and use one DP and one HDMI. You can find those refurbished on Newegg. $105 is a good deal.

Hi
I'm curretly updating to Mojave my old HTPC with a Sandybridge HD3000 which is not supported anymore by Mojave.

I am therefore looking for a fanless low end graphic card. Fanless GT710 would be a good choice, quite cheap but apparently only until 2021.

What would be the AMD equivalent ?

Thanks

There really is no equivalent to that from AMD. The 710 is 2nd gen Kepler from about 2014. Apple never supported any good low end fanless cards from AMD. You could look at the ATI/AMD Radeon guide that is linked at the end of post #1. There might be an older AMD card that would work. RX 560s are great but the prices are high due to scarcity.

Here's a fanless Asus GT 710 you can get for $29. Use it for two years with Mojave/Catalina then upgrade with an AMD Polaris card after prices have come down. $14.50 a year for graphics that work well is a drop in the ocean.

The drivers for most if not all of the older Silent/fanless AMD Radeon cards such as the HD 6450 and R5 230 were dropped with the release of Mojave.

I have a couple of systems using the HD 6450, but have had to swap out one for an Nvidia GT710 to run anything beyond High Sierra.
