Weird, probably jumped out the gate too early.

AMD are going to unlock "pro" features on the Radeon 7 in an update soon.

To add value and give it a feature-set edge over the GeForce RTX 2080, AMD is reportedly preparing to unlock several professional graphics features for the Radeon VII that are otherwise exclusive to Radeon Pro series graphics cards. These features will be released by simply adding Radeon VII support to the upcoming Radeon Pro 19.Q1 software suite. You uninstall your Radeon Adrenalin 2019 Edition drivers and replace them with the Radeon Pro 19.Q1 drivers to access pro features.

These include access to ProRender, certifications for various 3D, CAD, and CGI suites, SecureMI security, enterprise virtualization, and more. Over 320 professional applications are certified for the Radeon Pro 19.Q1 drivers, all of which will seamlessly run on the Radeon VII. AMD will also introduce a feature that lets you switch between the Radeon Pro and Radeon Adrenalin drivers on-the-fly (without needing reboots), so you don't lose your ability to play the latest games with day-one optimizations from AMD. These drivers will make the Radeon VII an incredible value in the enterprise space, as the GPU offers performance rivaling professional graphics cards priced well north of $3,000. It also blunts the feature-set edge the RTX 2080 holds over the Radeon VII.

AMD Radeon VII Has No UEFI Support

https://www.techpowerup.com/252476/a...o-uefi-support

Probably what's been causing issues.

EDIT

AMD have stated they will release a 1 click bios update shortly.

Interesting. I'd be curious exactly how many people had issues because AMD's BIOS lacked UEFI support. Strange that AMD would even release the graphics card without it. Very odd.

My card actually wouldn't initially boot with UEFI settings so the mobo switched to compatibility settings automatically.

Interesting. Very strange issue. At least it doesn't seem to be taking long for AMD to address this issue.

AMD have issued a bios update for Radeon 7, X64 and X86 depending on your OS to enable UEFI support.

https://www.amd.com/en/support/radeonvii-vbios-eula

Flashed using the X64 for my X64 OS, Simply double clicked the executable, Took maybe 20 seconds, Closed itself out and then manually rebooted, Jobs a good'n.
