    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    You are only connecting one display? The LG UltraFine 5K has two DisplayPort inputs internally from Thunderbolt. I guess one is primary and the other is secondary. I wonder if the motherboard Thunderbolt controller is connecting the wrong LG UltraFine 5K DisplayPort input to the Radeon? I don't...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    You have connected DisplayPort output of Radeon to DisplayPort input of motherboard? For Hackintosh, it maybe better to disable iGPU. The speakers of the display are connected to a USB audio device that is connected to a USB controller in the display that is connected to the computer's PCIe...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Thunderbolt NHI and USB and their bridges always report 2.5 GT/s x4 even though they are faster than that (these devices are internal to the Thunderbolt controller so they don't really use PCIe bus). You should only worry about the upstream Thunderbolt bridge (8 GT/s x4 is normal/max) and your...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    I've tested the USB-A ports of the Mac mini 2018. They are USB 3.0 (5 Gbps). Apple says so in the tech specs. https://www.apple.com/ca/mac-mini/specs/ https://support.apple.com/kb/SP782?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US There are some USB-A ports that support 10 Gbps. If the ports are controlled by...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    Yes, 4K from the Motherboard's Thunderbolt port using a DP connection from the Radeon to the DP In port. You need two DP In ports to get 5K. Yes, 5K 24 bpp means a single HBR3 connection. 5K 30 bpp requires dual HBR2 connection (like the LG UltraFine 5K) or single HBR2 with DSC (like the XDR?)...

    Apple software/security update created a "install MacOS on High Sierra" boot entry in clover

    You are supposed to use Clover to boot that install partition until it goes away. That's when you know the updates are done. I haven't been able to boot the 2020-004 10.13.6 installer yet so I don't know how many times you need to boot. Mine stops with a displaypolicyd problem. Edit: I skipped...

    Adding/Using HiDPI custom resolutions

    1) Open the override file created by adaugherity EDID script, copy the IODisplayEDID and paste it into the override file created by SwitchResX (replacing the EDID that SwitchResX created). 2) Delete the override file created by adaugherity EDID script. 3) Redo the changes you made in...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Use EasyUEFI in Windows to add a boot option for OpenCore. Change the order so OpenCore is at the top.

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    5K on MacBook. Do you mean MacBook Pro? because MacBook can't do 5K. To verify 5K, you need to like at timing info using SwitchResX or AGDCDiagnose output.

    [In progress] SSDT for Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug

    The OWC TB 3 Dock has its own USB controllers. USB 2.0 from the dock does not depend on USB 2.0 of the host Thunderbolt controller. USB 2.0 from the Thunderbolt controller is only necessary if you want to use a USB 2.0 device directly from the Thunderbolt controller (such as a mouse or a mouse...

    Adding/Using HiDPI custom resolutions

    Oh. I just noticed the differences. The new EDID has a few changes for UHD support. I ignored the new EDID because it didn't come from AGDCDiagnose so I can't know if you modified it (it doesn't contain SwitchResX text so you probably didn't modify it, unless another method of editing it was...

    Adding/Using HiDPI custom resolutions

    What are you doing? To make a 1920x1080 HiDPI mode, you just need a 3840x2160 mode (either scaled or an actual timing). Then the macOS makes a HiDPI mode from that. You don't make HiDPI modes directly. Descriptor #0 in the EDID is a 1920x1080 timing which macOS can use for a 960x540 HiDPI mode.

    Adding/Using HiDPI custom resolutions

    Quartz Debug.app v3.0 from Leopard (10.5.8) developer tools (Performance Tools) works on my Power Mac G5 (Quad). It supports arbitrary scale factor from x1 to x3. Here's a screenshot of x3 on a 1920x1200 display: My Mac Pro (Early 2008) (MacPro3,1) has 64 GB of RAM and an EVGA Nvidia GeForce...
