Works in windows but not macOS, not sure why. Using same enclosure I was using with my RX 570 which worked flawlessly in macOS but upgraded and now it’s not working. I attached photos of how it recognizes in windows and macOS although I just get a black screen on macOS.

Forgot to mention, this is a MacBook Pro 16 inch on newest version of Big Sur. RX 570 was plug and play

I wiped my MacBook Pro clean and issue still persists. I placed my RX 570 back into the enclosure and this is what it said (notice the difference between the RX 570 and RX 580). Can’t find anything about this issue ever occurring on the internet. https://imgur.com/a/wuPyZjw

@tryfon_theophilopoulos, Many XFX cards have vBIOS that are not macOS compatible. The common solution is to find a Sapphire vBIOS with matching memory brand to flash over in Windows.

@itsage, thank you for this advice, is there any tutorial for this? I’m not entirely sure how to do it.
