Which GPU to Buy for Hackintosh in 2023?

Choosing the right GPU is crucial when building a computer. Just like other hardware, not all GPUs are compatible with Hackintosh systems. In this guide, we’ll explore the best GPUs for Hackintosh builds and offer some guidance to assist you in making the right decision.

Nvidia or AMD

For Hackintosh builds, both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs can work, but the level of compatibility will vary. Newest video cards from Nvidia are not supported, but many older Nvidia’s can be patched to work with latest versions of the system.
AMD GPUs tend to have better out-of-the-box compatibility and we would definitely recommend looking at getting them if you plan to build a brand-new system.

Connectivity and multiple GPUs

Incorporating multiple GPUs into your system presents no challenges, and you can seamlessly link multiple displays using VGA, HDMI, and DP connections. Nevertheless, the quantity of displays and graphics cards supported may differ based on the specific system configuration.

macOS versions

AMD GPUs from more recent generations are primarily compatible with the latest versions of macOS. Therefore, if you intend to create a Hackintosh setup for running older macOS versions, it’s recommended to consider using earlier AMD GPU models or, alternatively, explore the possibility of using certain Nvidia graphics cards.

Other factors

PCIe slot compatibility, PSU compatibility, as well as cooling, and size of the GPU are among other points you should consider when choosing the best graphics card for Hackintosh. Feel free to reach out to us directly for a consultation, our technician will be happy to check your future build.
