Hi @olbo

Anything special you did to get sleep to work? I have a similar setup, Aorus X570 xtreme and a Radeon Pro 7. Everything works great, but sleep! Just curious if found anything that might help me get that working. Thanks in advance!
Nothing to report, sleep worked out of the box in Big Sur - do you have the kernel panic log from a failed sleep?

CPU: Ryzen 3950x
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 5700 (I have since flashed my vanilla 5700 with a 5700XT BIOS and have seen performance gains)
RAM: 32GB of Corsair LPX 3200MHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus Master X570
Audio: ALC1220 (on Motherboard) + USB Microphone
Ethernet: 1G & 2.5G (on Motherboard)
WiFi/BT Card: Broadcom BCM943224PCIEBT2
Cooler: Noctua DH15 - Great cooler, may be OC'ing in the future
PSU: Corsair RMX750 with individually sleeved red modular cables
Case: Carbide Series™ Air 540
SMBIOS: MacPro7,1
3 x SSD, 1 x 2TB HDD, 1 x Blu-Ray Optical Drive
macOS 10.15.5, Arch Linux & Windows 10

For this build I used the OpenCore Desktop Guide.

Works:
  • iMessage
  • Handoff
  • Apple TV+
  • Netflix
  • SMC control using AMD Power Gadget
  • All USB ports
  • Sleep and Hibernate (BigSur)
What doesn't work:
  • Sleep/Hibernate - Kernel Panic due to problem with XHCI controller, seems to be a problem with AMD. I have not tried it since adding the USB Map
  • Side Car - Attempts to connect, then times out - Unsure of the problem, have not investigated
  • Line-In on the case, or the motherboard as this is a generic problem with AMD builds - I would really like to solve this so I can use my studio headset.

I disabled the Mac Pro memory warning about misconfigured RAM with this kext: https://github.com/IOIIIO/MacProMemoryNotificationDisabler
Everything else about the configuration can be sourced from the OpenCore vanilla guide - what an excellent resource.
I am a developer so will be using this machine for Xcode, VSCode and the occasional bit of design with Affinity.

Geekbench:
https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/compute/1131251 (Can artificially inflate this with different power play settings to 70k+ but does not affect performance)
