Aloha izo! Awesome news and glad to see you back on this thread! Do you think the 6900xt will come down in price by the end of the year? Dishing out $2000+ for a msrp $999 card is hard to swallow. My Radeon VII is still doing its job but getting new toys is always enticing. Also, if you have updated your EFI with the recent build of 6.9 opencore, would you mind sharing? Thank you.
I don't think its coming down in price unless the mining craze goes away. I had to pay $600 extra for the 6900xt because I couldn't find it at MSRP anywhere for weeks. Theres a chip shortage from TSMC, they are overwhelmed with Apple, AMD (GPUs, CPUs and console chips) so....they don't produce it fast enough and there is a higher demand.
The Radeon VII is going for $2000 or so on eBay so I figured it will buffer out the price so it comes out more than even.
I actually just want to play some video games at 4k 60fps Radeon VII was basically a 2080, the 6900XT is like a 3090 without ray tracing or dlss (well not proper implementation yet). Other than that, I don't mind the extra CUs for exporting using Metal in macOS. I'm sure I will be utilizing the extra GPU power for work.
I haven't updated OpenCore to the latest yet, so can't post it yet unfortunately.
