Hello ! I'd like to build pc. And i'd like to install mac os on it (Сatalina/Mojave) But i don't know which graphics card will be better and work.
At first i think about: "Sapphire Amd Radeon Rx 580 Pulse Oc Lite"
But then i think about another variant: "Sapphire Amd Radeon Rx 5600 XT Pulse"
I didn't find information about compatibility second card with mac os. Can you help me ? It will work with it? Can you sent me link on such assembly with this or similar graphics card 5600?) Which card will be better ?)

I decided to buy:
1) Motherboard: "gigabyte z390 gaming x"
2) CPU: "intel - i7 9700f"
3) SSD: "Samsung Evo 500 gb M.2"
4) Power block: "AeroCool AERO BRONZE 700W [ACPB-AR70AEC.A1]". (MAYBE ANOTHER)
5) Сooler: "DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 BL [DP-MCH4-GMX400P-BL]"
6) Cracass: "Deepcool Kendomen RD"
7) RAM "Kingston HyperX FURY Black [HX432C16FB3K2/16] 16"

Performance of the RX 5600 XT is obviously better than the RX 580.

The RX 580 is supported on MacOS High Sierra / Mojave / Catalina, while the RX 5600 XT is only supported on MacOS Catalina.

So if you want or need to run Mojave you can't use the RX 5600 XT. If you want to run Catalina only then you can use either of them.

Thank you! It will not be problem that this card isn't 5700 series?) I see in many topics, that's Catalina support 5700 XT, but find very little information about 5600 XT

hey, did you build your hackintos using a RX 5600 ? im about to buy my own and have doubts about RX 5600

Hi! I'm using an RX 5600 XT on CATALINA 10.15.7 and I played the shadow of the tomb raider and it was working fine, but I still can't see the GPU temps. That's the only thing I'm worrying about

Use FakeSMC3 with plugins

Had some issues and found that it shows GPU temp using hwmonitor

ps: FPS is good ? The GPU works but FPS is very slow comparing to Windows in the same machine
