    In new iMacs is AMD Pro 580 with Sierra 10.12.5, does it mean we can uses RX580 in MP with Sierra 10.12.5 ? Drivers should be there, or is the Pro 580 in iMac different from RX580?

    But look at https://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/imac/27-inch

    Sierra 10.12.6 is not public now, but new 27" iMac with 580 is ready to deliver and is with Sierra 10.12.5 - this is the latest OS available now. Or I'm missing something ?

    Yes, it’s a special build not available to anyone but those with 2017 iMacs.

    The third beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 is also available for public beta testers.

    also, there's a specific update for the 2017 iMacs -> https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1921
    the drivers are in there. if you know how to, you could extract them...

    Out of my knowledge. I want to upgrade my Mid 2010 Mac Pro to "survive" until new Mac Pro arrive. I'm using FCP X, Motion so I was thinking to use RX480, but I'll will go for 580 with 10.12.6 final version.
