I thought I was fully up to speed on Blender's hardware requirements when building my latest machine,
... but it appears I needed to read the fine print a little more closely. Are AMD and MacOS now a non-starter with Blender (given the OpenCL issue with Apple)? 2.79 & 2.80 seem to crash completely with my Vega VII in MacOS, but both work absolutely fine in a VM running *Nix on the same MacOS host and GPU! Interesting.
Am I missing something? Is this an issue with Blender and the Vega VII? Or is there something missing MacOS-side that I would just need to update?
