Radeon VII compatible with Mac?
Really stable for me as well. I’ve done lots of testing in FCPX with a variety of footage (R3D, ProRes, ProRes Raw, H.264) and the performance is solid. Clean and fast exports, but only about a 15% gain over the Vega 20 in the MBP. I’m hoping to see some more speed in the official release.
Hey Guys, I bought today a AMD VII and wanted to use it with my RAZER CORE X, but it didn't worked...and finally I tried the support chat but they only told me that the RAZER Enclosure support the AMD VII but only with WINDOS because APPLE hasn't a suitable thunderbold driver and Apple have a list from 2019 which shows all supported Graphics for the use with an eGPU Enclosure...but finally I googled and found this discussion and it helped me to think in the right direction....so I tried to update my osx to 10.14.4 but it still not worked...BUT I after updated to the 10.14.5 (Beta) and now it works... 😀 ...I wanted only to share it in case you still have no solution...
While I still have no solution for the Radeon VII fans spinning when my Mac Mini sleeps, I have just plugged a Dell XPS 15 (9550) into the Razer Core X and, while it handles sleep without any problems, when I power down the XPS 15 the fans start spinning at Max speed and won't stop until I physically disconnect the Thunderbolt cable.
It's a shame that nobody at Razer appears to be tracking this. Given the inconsistent behaviour, I'm starting to think that MAYBE their box is the root of the problem.
@screendor nice, honestly the beta has been pretty stable, no freezes or nothing bad at all, well except when you put your mac to sleep, the fan revs like crazy with the Razer Core X. This is gonna get better and better.
@juan_c_yunis, do the fans spin up to max on shut down as well or just sleep? I'm currently unplugging my CoreX when using MacOS and plugging back in (before power up) when I run Bootcamp. And when I power down (from Bootcamp) the "R" logo on the card powers off, but the fan power up to max (until I unplug the TB3 cable to the CoreX).
Thanks @juan_c_yunis! I actually think that is good news. Since the correct behavior happens at shut down, it seems likely that this will be fixed. Please confirm that the red "R" LED turns off when you shut down (and at sleep). Just curious.
@kelvin_tan, what made you ask about shut down? are you seeing the same max fan issue at shut down in MacOS or from BootCamp?
