Hello! I have: rx 5700xt, r 3600, 16gb ddr4 3200.
In tests, hackintosh shows results 2 times less than on Windows. In the game Dota 2, I observe 50 fps. A Mac mini with an external 5700 works perfectly.
How to increase the productivity of the 5700 xt? What is the reason for such low work? Is it because of amd cpu? RadeonBoost.kext didn't change anything.
Help plz. Sorry for my English.

I understand that there is a bug in macOS with specifically this video card, which goes away if you plug in a second display or use a dummy plug (hdmi or displayport - they cost about 10 euros/dollars).

I have the same problem. my configuration is ryzen 5 2600x - rx 5700 xt sapphire nitro +. since the 10.15.5 update the performance fall 50%. I have searched all the forums and I cannot find how to solve it. I think it is because of the amd processor, because people who use intel do not have the same problem.

Loading the SMU Firmware improved memory bandwith, this was the reason that Geekbench performed much better as it is very bandwith bound. That does not directly relate to actual game performance though.

That's what I think. the problem is with the kernel or driver since 10.15.5. in big sur the same thing happens and it is not fixed. in the end it will be back to intel
