@defoler ugh... I think your right, not sure why I chose this monitor all the resources I pulled from specifically used the 5k2k. Looks like I will be sending this back.

@juan_c_yunis wondering if you can  give me some guidance? Im able to get my setup to work on the MAC OS side  (setup: 17 MacBook Pro + Razer Core + AMD Radeon VII + LG UL 4k Monitor). Im trying to get this to work on the windows 10 side, via bootcamp and when I boot up on the windows side I get a message that my displayport version may cause the LG screen to dark and it wont connect. Any help would be much appreciated... looking to use it for gaming.

Where are you based? Are you talking about Ultrafine LG displays? If so I may have the cable you need... it doesnt work with my 5K as it uses TB3 but the 4K uses USB C.

Just noticed you are from NY... as luck would have it my pal who also lives in NY is visiting me in London this weekend... so getting you the cable could be an easy task... (if you are interested).

@p_gartner sorry for the late answer, but honestly i haven't tested any 4k/5k monitor that uses USB-C or TB3 to connect. You said that you are using the display port cable, and you don't have issues with macOS, only Windows 10, did you update your VII firmware/drivers to the latest version, also have you tested other cables? I was reading that it also supports HDMI, could you test that? Also, the HDMI of that monitor supports adaptive sync and HDR-4k60.

Anyone else upgraded to 10.14.5 public beta 2 and having issues running unigine benches in MacOS?  Both Heaven and Valley crash on start for me.  Games I have tried work ok (Elder Scrolls Online and World of Warcraft).  I took the plunge and bought a Radeon VII, have it up and running in MacOS and Windows now but wanted to do some benching before I put up a build guide.

Thanks, maybe I have outdated versions or something, I downloaded them in 2013.  I'm going to try to get fresh copies.

(UPDATE:  downloaded fresh copy of Valley, still crashing)

@juan_c_yunis ... No worries, so I did test every other cable options plus utilizing my Caldigit TS2. With that said I sent it back today, as soon as I get my refund I am going to purchase something else. I'm looking at the LG LG34WK95U UltraWide 34-inch 5K2K display ( https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fgoo.gl%2FrcnnD1&redir_token=eTuH9dP8q1JNvqdKEqj40MsIUuN8MTU1NTA5Mzg1NUAxNTU1MDA3NDU1&v=7uFWUTgMzaw&event=video_description ). In all the tutorials I has seemed it work.

I really want a monitor that will work with the razer core x + VII, plus I'm content creator (creative director) so I would like it to be great for that and then be able to jump on the windows side and do some lite gaming. lmao.. am asking for to much! Anyway, do you have any other monitors in mind that will work for me? Im not super picky went it come to 4k/5k, just want things to work and be able to run APEX Legends... thanks for getting back to me.

@p_gartner I'm using a BenQ PD2700U on my Core X + VII and it works great. The Radeon drivers in Windows recognize it as FreeSync capable, too.
