@eightarmedpet I believe @fcpxusergermany tested it through the internal PCIe slot of 2010 Mac Pro tower in Windows, not via TB3 enclosure.

yes it's internal PCIe slot ... and only with Windows 10

Oh aye, I noticed that, but it’s promising...

If it doesn't work with an internal pci-slot in Windows 10, even I would lose hope 😉

It works, but it has no drivers. So you'll get the desktop, but the software rendering is sluggish, at least in 4K.
Anything using Metal or OpenCL will complain there's no compatible device present. Read somewhere 10.14.4 might have support.

Got my Radeon VII and Razer Core X.

Can confirm, doesn't work.

  • Called Razer, they were not very helpful.
  • Called AMD, their Radeon VII team told me (as I see here) to wait for MacOS 10.14.4.

Currently plugging the Core X into the MBP with Radeon VII inside yields "No GPU detected" or a hard shutdown of the Mac, complete with a few seconds of 100% RPM on both internal fans... never seen (heard) that before.

Anyway...... we wait.

Thanks for sharing very promising, let’s hope for next beta!
