So, not much needs to be said about this. We are based in LA and have had issues getting some of our supplies in typical time. We are a small company with few employees and have released one who had a lengthy commute. Orders are delayed but still shipping. Please be patient, we are all in this together.
An exciting new development, MVC has cracked the EFI for 5700XT native support in4,1/5,1 Mac Pros. And while you need 10.15.1 for full video and audio drivers, the good news with the EFI is you still get an image in earlier OSs for basic screen use. Pre-orders start 3/1/20 for cards shipping 3/10/20 or so. (Some shipping issues with Eastern countries). Yep, no more power issues, these cards are 6&8 pin from the factory. So all the benefits of native EFI, easier switching OS's and diagnostics, while also harnessing the power of the latest and greatest from AMD. Win/Win !
We were recently reminded that 4,1 Mac Pros, even with the 5,1 Firmware, can't natively run updates to 10.13. This can result in being stuck at 17G65 or even the dreaded 17G66 (no Nvidia drivers for 17G66)
The fix is simple, and was provided by DosDude, who has made life easier for Mac users running newer OS's.
Scroll to the bottom of the linked page and you'll see some FAQ's. Right above these he has a section called "Updates". The little script for download will allow you to use Software Update natively to get latest Security Patches. Simply download the script, open a terminal window and drag the script to it. Hit "Return" and you'll be asked for your admin password. Once entered, the script will run, and then ask if you'd like to have it check for updates.
At this point you can close the terminal window and Restart. Once booted back up, you'll be able to run the Security and OS updates normally, as Apple intended. The Nvidia driver updates will allow you to get their newer drivers as well.
Thanks again to DosDude, consider sending him a small donation for making our lives so simple.
Not to get TOO technical, but Sapphire recently made some changes that required a new ROM for their cards.
After spending some time on this, we are back up and shipping these cards as new or used. Sorry for delay, we should be caught up with all shipments by Wednesday.

Hey, so wanted to let everyone know that we are officially taking flash orders via mail. We are going to start off just doing 4 cards we have already worked with. This will include the original Reference 480, the Sapphire Pulse, the MSI 580 8GB and a Gigabyte AORUS 580 8GB.
Once we establish a working baseline and try some other cards out we will be expanding to more models.
This is great for people who already have a 480 or 580 they are comfortable with and just really need the EFI boot screens. We do not supply any [power cables, but you can order them if you don't have them already.
The 480 is actually the same card as 580, just running at lower speeds and needing less power. Only takes a single 6 pin power cables, leaving the other one available.
Will be adding RX560 and flash service for 580 Sapphire Pulse next.
If you enjoy Sci-Fi and shows like "Black Mirror", have I got a book for you. Or actually Amazon has it on good old paper with ink (Or Kindle):
Or from our friends in Cupertino:
Here is the main page for it:
Send your paper copy in with Flash Job and get $10 off and it will come back signed by one of the authors.
Launch party this weekend in SF Bay Area. (San Jose)
Despite Earthquakes and fireworks, we have begun shipping and the first 580s should be in people's hands starting today.
Looking forward to hearing folks thoughts on them.
Will start also offering 560s in near future, then we'll have a look at those Cosworth Vegas.
