Option 2: Add Properties
This is going to be the most popular for users on here as you can disable your Nvidia card but still get to use supported AMD GPU for heavy lifting in MacOS. Main downsides of this method is that it will disable your Kepler GPU as well so you can't run an RTX 2080ti with your GT 710.
So to start, you'll need to open up your config.plist and navigate towards Devices -> Add Properties where you'll add the following:
Devices
Key
Value
Disabled
Value Type
NVidia
name
23646973706C6179
DATA
NVidia
IOName
#display
STRING
NVidia
class-code
FFFFFFFF
DATA
And here's the XML for those who prefer Copy-paste:
1
<key>AddProperties</key>
2
<array>
3
<dict>
4
<key>Device</key>
5
<string>NVidia</string>
6
<key>Disabled</key>
7
<false/>
8
<key>Key</key>
9
<string>name</string>
10
<key>Value</key>
11

<key>Device</key>
17
<string>NVidia</string>
18
<key>Disabled</key>
19
<false/>
20
<key>Key</key>
21
<string>IOName</string>
22
<key>Value</key>
23
<string>#display</string>
24
</dict>
25
<dict>
26
<key>Device</key>
27
<string>NVidia</string>
28
<key>Disabled</key>
29

30
<key>Key</key>
31
<string>class-code</string>
32
<key>Value</key>
33
<data>
34
/////w==
35
</data>
36
</dict>
37
</array>
Copied!
And now all Nvidia GPUs will be blocked from your system
And for those with Navi or other unsupported AMD GPUs, there's also some luck for you as well
