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!

Has anyone tried this driver and obtained Xconnect support for Radeon VII in Windows?

I can wait for Apple to bake in support but would be good to be able to get the RVII for my windows laptop.

I'm pretty shure I read somewhere, that the support of VII is planned, but not yet implemented. The VII is also not listed under supported graphic cards in driver release notes.

Edit: Seems that AMD has released a new driver for the VII (date of today), with the same version (Adrenalin 19.2.1) but WHQL certified. I assume that nothing has changed in the package (still no eGPU support).

I got it working in BootCamp Win10! So I'm pretty sure that it will work on a Windows laptop, too.

since i don't have a gaming monitor with free sync ... i only get 60 fps max in 1440p ... but average fps in high / very high settings in the high 40 to high 50 fps ... so pretty good for my taste... better than with my GTX960 4GB I had before in this system.

so here is my (long) video about my Radeon VII experience with my 2010 MacPro with a Windows 10 Bootcamp system... for Gaming and Video editing and so on...

I installed 10.14.4 Developer Beta 3 [18E194d] on my 2018 13" MacBook Pro just now. Radeon VII didn't work by default. I found the missing link to make it work. More details soon.

Nice! I just bought it 2 days ago while i was in Vegas, got it from Fry's, however it kinda sucks that i didn't get the deal of the 3 games. So were you able to make it work or you just figure that there is a new driver but it is not linked or had a bad device id?

@itsage you da man!  (Or person!). Look forward to hearing the details and if you think it Radeon VII will be officially supported in 10.14.4 or it's a hack/workaround to make it work.
