    10.13.4 - Only Some USB Ports Working

    Any update on this issue? I have a Z370 Gaming 3 board and just completed building my own SSDT based on Intel chipset port discovery. But some ports on SSDT don't work, while some on ASMedia don't, I counted them and they all add up to 15 (!). So my guess is we need to find a way to include...

    USB SSDT MaciASL Compile issue

    Hi all, I've created my own SSDT for USB ports per this guide. When I try to compile it into .aml, MaciASL just stuck in rainbow and iasl62 compiler hogging 100% CPU without any result. I've tried waited for like 5 hours to no avail. Is there anything I am missing? Do I need any special kext...

    Solved > Sidecar is not working?

    I too was having this issue, and all I had to do was change to a compatible iMac model in SMBIOS.

    Graphics Test: Bruce X

    Some weird results here. I have a new RX 590 which swapped out the GTx 1080 Extreme with very disappointing results, thought using AMD would boost my FCPX performance, something is wrong.

    Try rollback your webdriver to 387. BruceX will run over 3 mins on my GTx1080 Ti if I use the latest webdriver. I have had to rollback to 104 in last 3 macOS updates.

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.

    I tried .104, it seems fixed at first, then as I experiment more, it's not really fixed but kept to a minimal. For example, with the newest web driver on 10.13.3, every time I close a Safari window, there is noticeable lag, the whole screen freezes a second or two, but with the .104 driver, you...

    System massively slowed down by Safari (or Chrome)

    My Safari will lag somewhat during normal usage, but the whole screen will freeze for a second or two if Safari is doing something heavy, or quitting from/closing a busy tab/page. Dsiabling Canvas Accelerated Drawing and Full Page Accelerated Drawing totally solved the issue.

    Strange behaviour with 8700 Quick Sync w/ GTx 1080 Ti

    Never had a problem enabling internal graphics, even with my previous rig which the nVidia web driver needed iGPU as the secondary Metal renderer. Maybe it's your ig-platform-id, try get that sort out first.

    Unbelievable graphics problems on two diffferent builds

    I don't know whether power management works 100% or not, but as long as the computer can switch off monitor, can sleep, CPU frequency go up and down normally and can restart/shutdown, then I am good for it. I never hibernate my hack, since hibernation is extremely glitchy, even on my real Macs.

    Cant get any boot loader onto ssd. and can't get dual monitors on gtx 760(el capitan)

    I can't of much help here without further details of your hardware and configs. But have you tried only plug 1 monitor in for boot up? For my GTx 980, some web driver will break dual monitor setup, keep reboot before login if both monitors are connected, I can plug the second monitor in after...

    a good graphic card for video editing?

    Yeah, AMD prices is nuts at the moment, in Hong Kong we have over a hundred computer shops packed in 1 area and another computer mall just 2 tube stations away, but all they have from AMD is Vega 56, all RX x80 and Vega 64 is out, and even Vega 56 they want about €700 for it!

    Quick Sync hardware encode w/ nVideo card as primary

    There are a few things you need to do no matter your have AMD or nVidia dGPU, like having correct ig-platform-id, setting up BIOS correctly etc. But nVidia have NvidiagraphicsFixup.kext to fix IOVARendererID/SubID issue, I am really not sure how to go about this with AMD dGPU.

    You may refer to this post Strange behaviour with 8700 Quick Sync w/ GTx 1080 Ti see if it helps. I have slightly different setup than you, but the concept is the same.
