Radeon RX 590 support in 10.13? 10.14?
I bought an enclosure a couple weeks ago, have been utilizing a modified GTX465 (Quadro 4000) and it works as expected, however i'm wanting to get more performance and native support for the GPU from the OS. Utilizing the NVIDIA card is a tad hacky, and i think going with AMD would be the better choice.
My googling this morning didn't turn up much on the topic, but has anyone heard about support for the Radeon RX 590 that was released today in OS X 10.13 and/or 10.14?
The RX 590's PCI ID is 67DF. It should work in macOS but may be recognized as RX 580/Ellesmere until Apple has proper identification for it. This card competes in a tough spot. RX 580 is low $200s while RX Vega 56 is mid $300s.
The RX580 is already sub-200$ after rebates on Newegg at this point, and with Black Friday coming up, they are going to be dirt-cheap.

Don’t see why the 590 even exists. It should have been much more powerful to warrant the 90 tag. But should work in macOS.
10% boost over RX 580 seems about right.
Bring peace to your computing life: stop trying to understand Apple.
Thanks to the counsel and info from this site I went ahead and installed a Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 590 in my Mac Pro 5,1 and now we have 4K and Mojave 10.14.2 running smoothly. Yes - with 3840 x 2160 resolution! with 75 W. on the PCI slot, and 75 W on each dual 6 pin to 8 for a total of 225 Watts, working fine.
It is recognized as a Radeon Polaris 8192 MB.
