@gabizerty Nope GTX1050 needs web drivers and nvidia has not released web drivers due to conflict with Apple. The list will be updated soon.

Do any of the above discrete graphics cards support Airplay?

I've noticed that the built-in HD graphics on Intel chips support Airplay, but my GTX 680 does not.

Thanks!

Who has tried a newer 4K monitor with an older GTX 680 like with my Asus 4GB version? Is it working ok with the mini DV port from the 680, or is the HDMI port the better way to go? How about audio, is it working? Thanks!

@blast9999 I really don’t know, because I haven’t tried airplay.

I read something somewhere that the Vega graphics cards are supposed to support metal as well.

Under PCI in system info, my 680 GTX says link speed of 2.5G/s on my hackintosh, but a similar 680 (loaded with a new mac graphics bios as per dosdude's youtube) on my 2008 Mac Pro 3,1 running High Sierra it says 5G/s link speed.

My Mac Pro has the Nvidia drivers loaded, would that make the difference in reported link speed?

I haven't tried loading the Nvidia drivers on my Mojave hackintosh yet.

I ended up buying a 4K monitor. It's a LG UHD 32UK550. With the HDMI cable connected to the GTX 680, there were only two resolutions available: super tiny type at full res, or gigantic type at 1080 res. The Display Port cable gave a nice selection of 5 different resolutions with the middle one being perfect!

Both cables gave audio to the built-in speakers. 

I'm very happy with the upgrade from my old 24" 1080 monitor, and the stand on the LG is nicely adjustable up and down and tilts. If you haven't tried using a large monitor like this, give it a try!

Hello all

My first post can't find an answer. Is the PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB Red Devil Graphics Card metal compatible?

 

Many thanks.

Hi I just join today. I have run Nvidia 760 TI GTX 2GB on Mojave and Catalina no problem full acceleration. I now running Catalina with Radeon RX 580 4GB. Also I would just like to say I don't use kext for USB 3.0 or kext for sound because I use external usb sound and PCIe USB 3.0 card no drivers needed native run. No more worries when updating.

Alfie.
