So this means that the: Radeon Pro W5700X MPX Module for the MAC PRO 2019 doesn't work neither?

Regards.... and Thanks in advance.

Hi,
AMD Radeon Pro W5700X is a 5XXX Navi GPU, already supported in both Catalina and Big Sur (it is the same for Vega GPUs).

On the other side, if you have a 580, so 5XX model, it is a Polaris GPUs, and you need latest Big Sur Apple Metal driver to be able to work with OctaneX.

Happy Mac GPU rendering,
ciao Beppe

Hie Beppe.
Does this mean Radeon Pro 560X should work under BigSur ?

Hello, I'm using AMD Radeon Pro 580 with my iMac 2017 on Big Sur(11.0.1).
Do I also need to upgrade the driver? I'm a little confused with Pro 580 & RX 580.

AMD 560X is a Polaris GPU, so it is supported by Apple Metal driver included in Mac Os 11.0.1 Big Sur:

Personally I have an AMD Radeon Pro 575, and it is working as expected under Big Sur.

That's reassuring, thanks. Unfortunately I am still not getting a picture.
Here is a screenshot: https://imgur.com/Ubpw2th
This is Octane X PR3 from the Downloads section running on Big Sur 11.0.1 with Radeon Pro 560X GPU
It stil lsays "No render GPUs" under the render viewport
Am I missing something? Apologies!

This is a screenshot of Octane X PR5 (Big Sur) on C4D R23:

I went through all the demo scenes and couldn't get a picture unfortunately. Sorry if I'm missing something very obvious here...

Please go to c4d Settings/devices panel, and disable the Intel GPU, in order to render only with AMD Polaris GPU.
