Useful links for lists of "best graphics cards 2019"

Recommended Posts

Last updated: 3rd Jan 2019

 

We occasionally get questions about compatible graphics cards, so these articles should be useful for Hackintoshing purposes:

 

1) Best budget (under $50) graphics cards in 2019

All those cards are compatible with macOS up to High Sierra. Only a handful support Metal and Mojave, i.e. Kepler architecture for nVidia (e.g.: GeForce GT 710) and GCN1.0 architecture for AMD (e.g.: AMD R5 240).

 

2) Best low-profile single-slot graphics cards for Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs in 2019

All those cards are compatible with late versions of OS X/recent versions of macOS. Afaik, all meet the minimum requirements for Metal and Mojave but caution with nVidia cards in Mojave due to the unresolved issue of lack of drivers at time of writing.

 

NB: This August 2018 article says there are no low-profile single-slot nVidia GTX 1050/1050 Ti except the ASL GTX 1050 Ti Battle Flag which is stated as "very rare". It's no longer the case and this top low-profile single-slot card is now readily available and at fairly reasonable prices ($150-$200). It comes in 2 x versions: 2GB-DDR5 with reference "ASL G1502" and 4GB-DDR5 with reference "ASL G1504".


3) Best 1080p gaming graphics cards under $150

Those are good and reasonably priced cards, compatible with late versions of OS X/recent versions of macOS. Some do not need dedicated power supplies and will draw power from the PCIe bus. Afaik, all meet the minimum requirements for Metal and Mojave but caution with nVidia cards in Mojave due to the unresolved issue of lack of drivers at time of writing.

 

The site offers other "best graphics cards..." articles like "under $100", "under $200", etc. All available through a basic search.
