The graphics “Navi” won’t work correctly. You can probably get it working but no graphics acceleration, so no gaming or use of intensive apps. It runs with default VESA display drivers at 7-21mb.
It will not have “full” support but you can usually browse most websites and it can be slow and sluggish. If you’re doing it as a hobby that’s cool. but if you plan on using for work It’s best to use windows or Linux.

The igpu has zero support unless some smart coder makes drivers for it.
you could run without any acceleration I guess but it would be a ruff ride in macOS and not really worth it.

The 3080 is not supported, everything else is.
you could get a secondary AMD gpu like a rx570 and disable the 3080 in macOS

Nvidia and Apple had some sort of falling out. It was skepticat there would be any updates for them in the future but with the release of the M1 Macs is almost certain it'll never happen for Nvidia now.

Yes a RX 470 would work. Although take note of this for the GPU Buyers Guide,

Dortania said:
Regarding Polaris, basically every model of card is supported as long as it’s running either a Polaris or Baffin core(lower end cards like the RX550 run a Lexa core meaning no support in macOS).

The only brand of GPU you should avoid with the Polaris series would be XFX, PowerColour, HIS and VisionTek as many users have had issues with these cards with viewing Clover and macOS booting but other users have found fixes/workarounds(though nothing consistent). This seems to be caused by having an odd VBIOS that doesn't communicate well with macOS and the only real solution is flashing another VBIOS which is not ideal for most users.

You'll need to disable the Nvidia card for booting macOS which is relatively easy to do these days.

i have just grabbed an Gigabyte RX460,
there is an tutorial how to disable the Nvidia card on macOS boot ?
i want to add this card to the same system and have dual boot options on the same PC
also it will be connected to one screen not multiple,
i can connect the RX460 via HDMI to the screen and the RTX3080 via DP?
it will not make problems right ?
if you know a good tutorial how to install it on my system it would be kind if you share it with me <3

There's a guide here on disabling the GPU, https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/extras/spoof.html

That shouldn't be an issue no, just switch the input depening on which OS you are booting. Assuming the Nvidia card is in the first slot though OpenCore might default to that then macOS will initialize the AMD GPU once it's booted.
thanks and you have an tutorial on how to install hackintosh because all i found is on intel CPU and i have ryzen 9 5900X
