Awesome upgrade for my 2012 mac pro tower. Zero hassles, arrived sealed and perfect condition from Amazon. So happy prices came back down on these from crazy bitmining phase/fad.UPDATE:forgot to mention; if using with older Apple LED Cinema Display, with the attached (non removable) mini-DP cable; you will need a mini-DP to DP converter cable (less than $10).ALSO, here are the Geekbench 4 scores for the card on my Mac Pro 5,1 systems:Sapphire Pulse RX580 => 136001Sapphire RADEON 7950 Mac Edition => 89169RADEON 7970 (overclocked) => 106493

Arrived in under two days. Unpackaged and installed in my PC. I have a 1070 SC in my main PC now so bought this card for my second streaming PC. I'm impressed! Honestly can't tell much difference performance wise. Card is really quiet while maintaining temperatures under 75c at all times. Never drops below 60fps with high settings on everything in GTA 5, Witcher 3. Several VR games like VR Chat, The Lab, Beat Saber all run perfectly with no lag at all and as smooth as can be using the Vive VR headset. I'll update this review later on after using the card for a while but I'm very happy as a VR and gaming enthusiast for the price.

I have a 2009 Mac Pro 4,1 dual CPU. I followed the recommendations from user groups and added this along with changing CPU's and upgrading RAM. This fits nicely into the PCIe slot without sacrificing 2 slots. I heard other models of the RX580 are higher. The Sapphire Pulse is the one to get according to the other groups and it fits well. I use all 4 PCIe slots so didn't want to sacrifice any. Photoshop and Lightroom works much better in showing thumbnails and responds faster when retouching. Don't do much video editing except occasion iMovie shorts of 3 to 8 minutes. Sharing a movie to a file renders much quicker than my old stock GPU. I'm running Mojave on this Mac Pro and don't plan to upgrade to Catalina, so this video card is probably the last one I'll need.

Upgraded from a ASUS Strix R9 380. From a performance perspective, its works great, ~30%+ increase in performance. You can look at online comparisons on what type of performance to expect, and this met that. (playing BF1, Witcher 3, Warzone...)I have it paired with a AMD FX8350, 16GB RAM.Three things I want to point out:1.) The unit arrived with a slightly bent bracket. Was able to use pliers to straighten it out, and amazon was quick to resolve it. Not sure if this is Amazon or Saphire to blame.2.) After I removed my old R9 380, placed new RX 580 GPU in, everything booted fine. I updated the drivers to the latest via Adrenal 2020 (not necessarily required). After rebooting, my wired LAN stopped working. Windows did not detect it anymore. Just disappeared. Not seen in Device Manager. Did a bunch of troubleshooting (reset CMOS, go back to old drivers etc) to no avail. Instead of wasting additional hours, I just decided to buy a new pciexpress LAN card ($15). I do not know if this directly tied to the new GPU install, or purely coincidental. As time permits I may investigate further. Just felt I had to share this info.3.) From the perspective of stability, I have had this installed for 3 days now, moderate gaming use, only had 2 errors requiring a reboot. This may be due to conflicting software (apparently running any parallel GPU software may pose problems) or games itself. Hard to say who is to "blame" for this right now. With my older GPU did not encounter this. For this I am knocking a star off for now. I will continue to monitor and update my review.UPDATE SEP 16 2020: Changing review frm 4 to 5 stars. No issues when running its stock frequencies. If I use the built in Radeon "OC" feature to go to 1436, I had some hiccups hear and there. I think its true, AMD cards are good for those who want to tinker around. I have no regrets with this card so far.

User says:

The card works as expected under MacOS 10.13.6 and higher with known restrictions:The screen(s) stay dark until the OS has booted. This means that entering the Filevault password cannot be entered on boot, which in turn means that you can't encrypt the boot drive.This card is not supported with MacOS earlier than 10.13.6 and you must make sure that you upgrade the EFI Boot ROM to 138.0.0.0.0.0 before upgrading the Mac with this card. The latest EFI BIOS supported on this Mac under 10.14.6 as of 2019-08-10 is 144.0.0.0.0.0 and the card works flawlessly on three 4K monitors (2 x Display Port, 1 x HDMI, 1 HDMI port spare for now).

User says:

Before I set about upgrading my Mac Pro 5,1 (2010), my research pointed me at two cards - this one from Sapphire and the Radeon Vega 64. The latter requires two 8-pin power connectors, which requires mods to the power supply that I wasn't quite ready to sign up for, but the Pulse RX580 can be paired with a COMeap dual-6 pin-to-8 pin cable that makes installation a snap using power connectors already on the motherboard. The Geekbench v4 workflow (Compute) score it produces is twice that of the 2013 Mac Pro/2x D500 FirePro machine it's replacing. The card has no trouble at all driving a 4K display with high-quality video.

1. Out of the box into the mac - use a dual 6pin to 8pin adapter cable2. boot up - screens are black until login screen appears. - No apple logo showing the boot process.3. Login screen appears - log in4. Open up Premiere Pro 2020 it sees metal GPU acceleration off you go! SIMPLEI replaced a really good nvidia Quadro K5000 which had 4GB Video ram and that card worked great in Premiere Pro 2019 with CUDA. That nvidia card - not so good with metal, actually awful with metal in 2019. Updated to Premiere pro 2020 and found out adobe discontinued CUDA sadly. I then tried Metal as the option for PP 2020 with the nivdia K5000 card and it actually worked better than it did in 2019 but I felt that it suffered a little. It lagged sometimes where it did not in 2019. Multi-cam edit seemed quirky too. For the low price of AMD I figured try out the AMD Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 580 after all it had to be better it was twice the VRAM. My nvida card cost about 5 times the price of this one, oddly, and still does.My nvidia card was a lot of work a few years ago, I had to download drivers then install cuda software…. On and on… Every security update meant downloading and install the latest cuda update… This AMD none of that nonsense. It just works.So you don’t get a Apple Boot Screen, I don’t care it’s a mac for crying out loud I can count on 0 fingers how many times I needed to go to recovery mode in 11 years. I came from windows 11 years ago and never looked back. Macs are just easy, everything about them is easy. Macs just work! If you get stuff that is certified for mac or get what apple recommends you have no issues. I use Carbon Copy Cloner to keep a backup boot drive so if the drive should fail I can pop in the clone and get back up in minutes minus any updates. I keep my clone updated for the most part so I can never see why I should need the startup screen with options or recovery mode. I don’t dual boot so I have no need for the option command. I use Parallels to boot up windows 7 inside the mac OS for times I need that, I never just boot strait into windows at power up. If I ever need options or recovery I’ll use my old card. When I upgrade I just do it from the OS, you know download install etc. My mac started with snow leopard and I have kept it updated, mostly, never doing a startup drive method, just download and install method in app store.This card works great in Premiere Pro 2020 better than my Nvidia K5000! Can I tell a performance gain?… yes . It takes Processors, RAM, SSD’s and a good GPU - to make a good editing performance machine. GPU is only part of the equation but is probably one of the most important.Backstory to why I choose to upgrade from a good video card to a good video card:For the number 1 reason PP2020 did not work all that great with nvidia. Number 2 I could not upgrade to Mojave with the nvidia card, ok it will upgrade but the problem was Premiere Pro 2020 on Mojave with the nvidia K5000 running metal was quirky, I mean quirky to the point it drove me nuts. Mojave has no built in drivers for nvidia which is why I presume. Their was no cuda or driver updates from nvidia and every time you booted I got an error message about it. I use a Blackmagic card that outputs my preview to a TV monitor, that was herkie jerky and the GPU affects that I guess. The computer display was smooth, kind of, but my preview monitor using Blackmagic was way to jerky to the point of maybe it was doing 10 frames a second. I Updated the Blackmagic card to the latest software to no avail, so that had nothing to do with it. It had to be nvidia. That was a deal breaker to go back down to High Serria. I don’t plan on updating to Mojave until adobe quits supporting high serria. But knowing I can now and that PP 2020 works better with the AMD was worth the changeover and for a small investment compared to nvidia costs.

User says:

Exactly what I was looking for. Immediately recognized in Mojave as the gpu. Works great with my Razer Core X and Mac mini. Use mostly for video transcoding, benchmarks high on Geekbench and heaven.*** update. This is a great card, no doubt about it. However I do want to add a caveat for those looking for hardware transocdoing- Definitely buy Nvidia for hardware transcoding. Older, cheaper Nvidia cards will outperform this transcoding on plex or emby. No idea why but that's the facts. Otherwise this card is great.

The video card in my trusty Mac Pro 5.1 gave out and the only option looked to be in the $350+ range.After some reading I took a chance on this card and am happy to report it works fine out of the box with no extra software needed.I do have the black screen in lieu of the mac face when powering up that people mention but doesn't bother me. First, I mostly have it sleep instead of turning off and, more importantly, my startup drive is an SSD so the black screen is more of a blip on the way to the normal home/log in screen.My model is a mid 2010 Mac Pro 12 core running Sierra (OSX 10.12.6) with two Apple Cinema Displays, one 30” and one 23”.Install is super straightforward as most mods are with this with this machine though don’t forget the extra cable that you’ll need.COMeap Dual Mini 6 Pin to 8 Pin PCI Express Video Card Power Adapter Cable for Mac Pro Tower/Power Mac G5 15-inch(38cm)The only non-gushing thing that I would add is that moving from a 1GB card to an 8GB I expected some crazy difference in performance and can’t say that I really notice any.This machine is setup mostly for photo editing and regularly has 10-50 high resolution photos open in PS at the same time. The open/load time for these files and rendering thumbnails in Photo Mechanic don’t seem much if any faster.That said, I’m very grateful to keep this 10 year-old machine going a few years more before plunking down big money on a new model.Hope this helps.

Got this for my 2010 Mac Pro. Bought a 49” monitor and needed an updated graphics card. This beauty was the right choice. Everything was relatively easy to install. Had to get a new cable to connect to the motherboard, but that was only a $10 purchase.

User says:

Most modern games see about 200 fps in crossfire with all graphics settings turned up. Which is impressive since there is 8x as many pixels being processed in a 5 screen setup than there is with a single screen. Fallout 4 with multiple HD mods fares the worst, at around 30fps in crossfire, but we should all already know that fallout 4 just doesn't like crossfire. Performance is considerably better without it, no surprise... EZQuake and GZDoom both get anywhere from 700-1500 fps in my native resolution even though it only utilizes one card (no crossfire) They can get quite hot and the fans are ridiculously loud when pushing the cards to their limits. The fans stay ramped up far after the GPU temps have gone down. Nothing a small BIOS tweak might fix though. I originally felt like I picked the absolute worst time to buy two new GPUs, but the price on these has gone up almost 100 bucks since buying mine. No complaints here.

User says:

I bought this card mainly to update my OS, in my MAC PRO, to Mojave, and it worked as expected. I used the "COMeap Dual Mini 6 Pin to 8 Pin PCI Express Video Card Power Adapter Cable for Mac Pro Tower/Power Mac G5 15-inch(38cm)" video adapter cable to get it to work, which didn't give me any trouble eitherI didn't game, or benchmark, the GPU. I used it just to update it to Mojave then left the MAC PRO to the side. It's going to be my living room PC after I get a few other projects done first

User says:

Your PSU has the power cables to connect to the Graphics card so there is no need to buy anymore cables than what your PSU offers. It also comes with driver cd’s. My motherboard did not require to use the Cd drivers to install them for the card. I went onto the website and downloaded the Radeon adrenaline software and it’ll automatically install them without having to use the cd. If you’re using a older version of Windows it might require it. Hope this helps someone else.

User says:

Great performance for the dollar. Hard to compete under the $200 mark. 80fps+ on most games on high settings. Also has back plate. A lot of cards in the price range don’t.

User says:

Bought this too replace an Nvidia 1060- (they're mostly equivalent), as i'm running Linux (fedora) a lot these days and kernel updates usually bork Nvidia kernel module. Linux and 'BSD's have much better support for AMD than Nvidia. Hesitated on buying Sapphire as one I bought in May, besides not being what I ordered was DOA. Amazon's return policy is absolutely stellar.

The Sapphire Radeon 580 RX 8GB GDDR5 video easy installed 2010 Mac Pro METAL for Mojave run. You build cable 8pin to 2x 6pin.

User says:

Very nice quality and the cooling system is working very well

User says:

Compre esta Rx 580 por los juegos y para mi sorpresa ha salido muy buena, bastante fresca buana para juegos

User says:

For the price this baby brings a lot of power. It’s a power hungry card so I keep two fans underneath to give it some fresh air. But she works wonderfully.

User says:

Funciona bastante bien, recomiendo tener un gabinete con buena ventilación y actualizar los drivers seguido.

User says:

Buena tarjeta, actualice drivers desde la pagina, me llego en 7 dias a colombia. Llego nueva y sin problemas en la caja

I'm not disappointed though I purchased the absolute base model 2018 Mac mini. I can't say enough good things about it. It had definitely pushed my gaming to a new level of enjoyment. I've maxed out the setting of WOW and the game still gives me over 60FPS.Word of advice, due to an issue with Mac OS X, the Breakaway Box would not work unless the Mac was directly connected to the monitor. SONNET knew about the issue but it has be resolved through an Apple System Update.

User says:

Good card for 1080p gaming. Also it can handle Dota2 at 4K and Doom at 1440p with smooth 60fps.Good build quality.Not sure does it really need 8 gigs of memory.FreeSync is strange — it is difficult to configure and it is not always working in some games.Unfortunately, I was not able to get stable 60fps at 1080p in GTAV on Ultra. So I've got 1080ti

User says:

Definitely like the graphics/compute switch. I haven't had a chance to fully use the compute setting. I'm sure it will be good as the graphics setting. Stays cool under full load. Love the applications for Radeon. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to use the full 8GB of VRAM. None of my applications demand it. Worth the price, in my opinion.
