Skyrim starts but crashes when I choose play

Hello there.
Today is my first day with my Mac and I'have installed Crossover and Skyrim.
I open Steam client, select Skyrim and press Play.
It starts normally and I choose New. Immediately it crashes and exit to Steam.
I have a 5k iMac and I've probed a lot of resolutions. If I select a 1920x1080 it shows a black windows and doesn't start.
My graphic card is a AMD Radeon R9 M395X but in Skyrim preferences I can only select ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT.
If I try in windows mode I can see the introduction but when I try to move the mouse It crashes.
Please, can anyone help me?.
Thanks a lot and regards.

It does the same for me.  I'm running on a 5K mac as well, but with the R9 290 video.  I set my resolution to 1920 x 1080 and tried running it in a window.  I was able to play a few minutes longer, but then it crashes and exits to steam.

I feel like you have to start a lot of the graphics settings on low when you just start a game. After a few minutes of starting the game with medium graphics and a resolution one or two higher the 1080, I saved and left, and was able to come back and get the 3200x1800 i believe at high, with taking antialiasing down (don't think you need it since you can't see pixels. I also am now realizing I never tried turning down antialiasing till after, so it may have worked the first time if I did that)
