Hello,

I sold my Blackmagic EGPU and tried a new Setup with a Razer Core X and a Vega 64

Catalina shows me that the gpu is connected. Everything looks fine so far, if I start Heaven benchmark or WoW 

the system freeze in about 2-3 mins. Vega 64 fans just started to spin after that, maybe a minute later *system freeze*

I have to reboot the system. It looks like the gpu is getting to hot ? I am not sure but it looks like the fan control isn't working

properly in macOS for Vega cards ? Any suggestions how I can fix the problem ?

Its Asus STRIX Vega 64 ROG air cooled. It keep crashing only under heavy load. Its fine if I use Final Cut, but if I start a game or Heaven Benchmark *extreme* it keeps crashing. I would like adjust fan speeds and Temperature but didn't find any solution for it yet.

I'M about too sell this card and get a 5700XT but as far as I can see this cards makes also problem with macOS.

Nah. I’ve been running my Powercolor model AXRX5700XT-8GBD for six months. 

It works perfectly.

Well I saw a lots of issues with 5700XT and Razer core X and even Catalina 10.15.2 benchmark results wasn't even so great with 5700 XT. Or did I miss something ? issues solved with 10.15.4 ?

Mine’s worked perfectly since 10.15.1

Sounds like you missed all testing Barefeats has been doing.

As well as the Basemark GPU Metal benchmark results.
