GPU’s compatible with macOS 13 Ventura

This is a list of graphics cards which are natively supported in macOS Ventura, along with performance benchmarks. These cards will work in a hackintosh, in a Mac Pro, or in an eGPU enclosure connected to an Intel Mac with Thunderbolt 3.

On a hackintosh, for all of these cards, you’ll need to use WhateverGreen.kext and Lilu.kext. These should be placed on the EFI partition of your boot drive, in the EFI/OC/Kexts folder, and added to your config.plist.

1. There are two versions of the RX 550 – one with a Lexa core, the other with a Baffin core. Only the RX 550 with a Baffin core is compatible with macOS. To tell whether a card is a Baffin model, look at the number of Stream Processors. The Baffin cards have 640, while the Lexa cards only have 512.

2. While the RX 6650 XT and RX 6950XT aren’t officially supported in macOS, they are basically upgraded versions of the RX 6600 XT and the RX 6900 XT cards, which are supported. They can be made to work easily in macOS by spoofing the device ID to make macOS believe that a 6650 XT is an RX 6600 XT and a 6950 XT is a 6900 XT.
