@oliverb nope, i had to inject the kext to make it work. Will test stability.

UPDATE: Still unstable, lol, i guess we would have to wait for 10.14.5.

Welp.... 10.14.5 it is, I guess.  🙁

Let us know how the kext jigger goes.

Oh... it's a pity, because this means I will return my Radeon VII. Without proper MacOSX Support it's only worth half the money. What exactly are Apple and AMD thinking?

@juan_c_yunis what exactly is unstable? Is this a global phenomena? I haven't tested it a lot on MacOSX; other than a disappointing performance there was nothing unstable.

@oliverb yeah i agree, however i don't mind waiting a little bit more. I'm happy with it in Windows, yesterday i tried the power mod and i was able to push the memory to 1275Mhz and the core at 2Ghz on air, very stable lol.

Yeah, I bought my Radeon VII on release too, so can't return.  Wondering is should try and sell it, hold on for a bit...  Ugh.  Any guesses as to when it will work natively with Mac OS?

Well, if Apple sticks to their typical schedule, we’ll have the 10.14.5 beta to start messing with this week and see if things are looking better.

Also, has Apple ever skipped support of certain AMD cards in recent years. What’s the chance of being stuck with an unsupported VII card indefinitely?

Y'ever hear of Nvidia? Apple's been skipping their everything since MacOS Mojave. =P

I dunno... I don't think they've got any glaring omissions...

Yep, that’s why I specifically referred to AMD. CUDA support in Adobe apps can take a hike. Give me that Metal hotness!!
