Has anyone checked for AMD 5700 driver performance differences in the 10.15.4 beta?

Thanks

Any easy way to see if there are driver updates? I am hoping to see some performance increases with the Radeon Pro Vega II. One can dream.

I have a Saffhire 5700XT Nitro+ card that I am going to return and continue using the 580 until there is some driver movement. For the record that card is so nice and very well built.

You would think a company with the resources of Apple would be able to get this taken care of. This isn’t the scrappy little underdog Apple of 2003 anymore. Pretty disappointing.

Just check version numbers of the kexts. Usually every new macOS build comes with new AMD driver builds as well.
Great, but which kexts and where are they located? I don't tend to poke around the innards of my Mac OS too often.

Pro Vega II is Vega which is X5000.
As I said, graphics drivers are updated with every macOS beta build and release.
