Not sure if the admin is aware of this, but very recently we discovered that macOS does indeed support certain AMD APUs according to this list, since Catalina 10.15.4:
Code from the latest version of the MacOS suggests that future desktop machines from Apple may use AMD processors for future Mac computers. This could include MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, and iMac P…www.slashgear.com
Umm no I have to disagree on this, they are not left over code. They are specifically marked RENOIR_A0, PICASSO_A0, RAVEN_A0, RAVEN2_A0, VANGOGH_A0. These are not Intel + AMD combos, they are AMD APU codes (as far as I am aware). Plus I have recently tested booting Big Sur on my Atari VCS Picasso/Raven2 IGPU without any extra SSDTs, boot-args or device-ids, and it booted up right into it with no issues, into 4K mode. That means it is natively supported.Left over code from the Intel mobile GPU with integrated Vega graphics. Doesn't mean there is support at all. The macOS kernel references alot of stuff that isn't actually supported. Like the mention of "AuthenticAMD".
