just to let you guys know. My only viable workaround I could find was downgrading from i5 11500 to a i5 10400 CPU. Glad the guys from the store i bought my setup from was okay with exchanging. Do you guys think its a good idea? And also, how is the stability on that HD Graphics 630 on Big Sur? Would future updates kill my setup since I'm not running a dedicated graphics driver?

I should clarify, I've never seen it on the 570 or 580, but the XFX are notorious not to work well with Hackintosh

Yes that works OOB on minimum 11.4. How much did it run you? I'd love one too. Thinking the 5700 XT might be more in budget but the jump is generational to the 6000 series. Unfortunately the 6700 XT doesn't work with macOS yet
I initially bought a 6700XT but it does not work with Hackintosh so my son scored that for his gaming PC, the 6800XT cost me $1700NZD with free shipping. It is mostly priced around the 2K mark here in New Zealand so this was a good score. It should last me for a good few years if hackintoshing is still around.

Brutha it'll be stable and it'll run for years to come. The UHD 630 was released in an actual iMac in 2020. You're set.
That's the only other idea I thought of too

UHD630 should be fine. I use the IGPU as well on my i7 10700K and it works with no issues.

On a Z590 you might run into issues. The 500 series mobo has been giving issues. Maybe check on Hackindrom as I know there is an EFI there for the Z590, chat to @CaseySJ for help.

It should just fine. I'm using a Z590 without igpu so that's not far off, just a couple device properties. I thought you were using it with a Z590 board. Are you using a Z490 board?

nope. Running it on i5-11500 on z590 mainboard, GeForce 3060. I dont think that iGPU on this processor wont get any support in the future. So im probably gonna have to get another separate card right?
