I just check the spec of RX460. It seems the card is PCIe 3.0 x8. Since you can only get PCIe 1.1 on cMP, that means PCIe 1.1 x8. So, 1.5GB/s is the correct number indeed.

I'm not in the loop of current events, but many guys here have RX460 so they'll answer you soon enough.

My assumption is that all is ok.
Non flashed AMD cards are working at PCI-e 1.1 speeds in cMP, and RX460 is a x8 card. So speeds you're getting are expected when using just eight lanes of first gen PCI-e interface.

Hope that someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

EDIT: Haha, one minute faster :D

Thanks for the responses, very knowledgable. I haven't seen anything about the rx460 being able to be flashed for PCIe 2.0 or am I wrong? Also, so everyone with a RX480 or RX580 in their cMP are also running them at only PCIe 1.1?

AMD card cannot be flash to PCIe 2.0. Some card like R9 280 can be mod to support PCIe 2.0 via resistor 17 removal. But for most AMD card, we don't even know if such a resistor exist.

Anyway, by considering the RX460's performance. No need to worry about PCIe 2.0, PCIe 1.1 x8 is enough for most GPU operation.

I'm running a ASUS DUAL-RX460-O2G on slot one of a Mac Pro 3.1 running Sierra. It works right out of the box with dvi connected but Final Cut and Cinebench R15 crash pretty hard. Final Cut freeze's the whole system except mouse movement.

Cinebench R15 says the GFX board = AMD Radeon HD Baffin Prototype Open GL engine. When starting the OpenGL test, it runs for a couple of frame's and the software crashes.

Als Quicktime is really choppy.

Inside the system prefference's it says Graphics AMD R9 xxx 2048mb.

Any idea how to solve this?
