    Hey, so, I want to install Mojave on a Mac Pro 3, 1 with dosdude1's patcher, a GTX 670, which is metal supported though not officially. Since the 670 Isn't technically supported, there are no EFI Firmware Flashes. While watching YouTube I discovered that when installing Mojave, "All GPU's in...

    Metal Cards recognized by Mojave Installer

    My first install of Mojave was an early beta. My Radeon 7970 was not recognized at the time, but I was able to do a command line install.
