I am not sure if someone has tried that before but it's what I really need at the moment!

I have only MACPRO 3,1 with open core 0.6.6 and Ventura 13.4

I have the most famous issue nowadays with RX580. So I need to flash it to let it work normally on MACPRO sine it is just allocate 10 MB vram.

The problem is I have only MACPRO machine. So I cant download the GPU-Z or AMDVBFLASH to download the current VBIOS and flash it with a new one.

So what should I do now to make this done successfully? There is any alternative software for mac to do that or probably I can manage that via terminal ?

Appreciate your help!

I think to make this happen, you honestly need to find the appropriate tools. Sorry if that's harsh. I guess you could always try a hardware programmer that supports mac or something.

Windows, or a hardware programmer that happens to support mac. Your kind of on your own there though.
