@itsage, I see ... well it's the Gigabyte Gaming OC 16G ( not much luck in getting a different one for a "low" price)
I tried both BIOS Setting on the Card.  Really odd boot issues ...sometimes it works with one screen, other times with two screens connected, sometimes (mostly) not booting at all with kernel panic or "getting stuck" while booting. Other times it boots fine but while locking in, one of the screens is getting green and the system does freeze ... well, sending back the card I guess ... pretty disappointing.

@fcpxusergermany, I've experienced a similar issue with ASRock Taichi RX 6800 XT. Once I switched the vBIOS to the other position, it was working much better. Each card has its own firmware/s unfortunately and Apple certainly doesn't make things easy.

Just trowing it out here: Have anyone successfully managed to use a RX 6900 TX with a XTXH GPU on OSX 11.5?

I'm just booting a Mac Pro 2013 alone and then powering up my 2x Taichi 6800XT eGPUs.

@direktorn, i just managed to use my Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 6900 XT SE with my MacBook Pro 16 inches using a Razer Core X. It works flawlessly out of the box with MacOS 11.5.

@leoben, Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 6900 XT SE isn't a XTXH GPU. It's a XTX gpu. The XTXH GPUs are new variants of the chip not yet supported in macOS.

I just wanted to ask if anybody has had anymore news on the chance of apple brin ging out a driver update for the 6700xt. Its been a while now since the 800 and the 900 where implemented. 

Luckily i can still use the card and to play games on my bootcamp partition but having the extra speed for work would certainly be of help.

@bo_caels, Unfortunately, there’s no news about AMD RX 6700 XT and 6600 XT drivers being developed by Apple for MacOS. 

My guess by implication is Apple’s working on achieving 6600 XT and 6700 XT levels of performance in the first high-end (mid-2022ish) Apple Silicon Macs featuring their own GPU designs. 

So, hopefully the new hardware developed for this Fall/Winter’s next-gen mid-range MBP and Mac Mini will show Apple has made some real progress towards ultimately offering similarly powerful graphics options. 

Maybe we’ll see these new 2021 mid-range Apple Silicon Macs include at least the equivalent of RX 5500 XT level graphics.

Hello all.. long time lurker (and reader), first time poster (and hopefully without sounding too obtuse).

 

I recently was able to get a AMD W6600 Pro card.. I'm currently using a RX 580 with a Sonnet Breakaway 750ex  box on a 6,1 Mac Pro via Kryptonite (thank you to Kryptonite's creators and contributors). And this combo works great..! However I cannot get the W6600 to be recognized in macOS - macOS sees a card in the chassis but shows just generic chipset info.

I'm pretty sure that the answer to this is that I'm only using this in Windows or Linux until macOS officially supports the W6600 chipset.. right?

 Thanks in advance... 

System Information: Model: Mac Pro (Late 2013) • CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2690 v2 (20 Threads, 10 Cores) @ 3.00 GHz • Memory: 48.00 GB • Uptime: 2 days • Disk Space: 3.97 TB • Graphics: AMD FirePro D500, AMD FirePro D500, Radeon RX 580 • Main Display: 3200 x 1800 at 30 Hz • OS: macOS Big Sur (Version 11.6, Build 20G165)

@tmo1138, Yep. There are no MacOS drivers for AMD’s Radeon Pro W6600 or RX 6600 XT cards. 

My guess is Apple’s planning for their own GPUs to reach 6600 XT and 6700 XT levels of performance by the time the 2022 AS Mac Pro is released. 

Currently a W5700X MPX module with 16GB memory only adds $600 to the cost of the base model Intel Mac Pro. I’m guessing Apple will continue with this option rather than develop a new W6600X module and driver.
