    NVMe Power management support - APST

    Thanks for the tip with iStat! Are you dropping below 10W then? Otherwise I am getting to very close values (10,2W with low brightness and Bluetooth off).

    NVMe Power management support - APST

    Hi Velaar! How do you measure the power drain? I'm on a T480s and experience a similar behavior (battery life on macOS = 1/3 from what I get on Windows 10 thus 3:20h vs. 11hrs)

    Success - macOS 10.14 on ThinkPad T480s

    This should be working out of the box, (at least I had no problems using any of the repos from linusyang92/kk1987) From my experiences it is around 4 hours with macOS (feels like full power, Intel Power Gadget indicates that the CPU drops as low as 0.8GHz - but way less frequent than while...

    Lenovo T480S - TB3 eGPU (AMD RX580) detection

    I temporarily fixed it for my needs using a workaround / script, that just mounts the EFI folder, copies the Hotplug-patch from the folder to my Desktop and reboots - that makes my eGPU working (However, it's still as described - hotplug won't work in that mode - eGPU mounted as "internal" GPU...

    [In progress] SSDT for Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug

    I am currently trying to get TB3 hotplug working on my T480S (ioreg files comparing between my T480S with and without TB3-patch to my MacBook Pro 2017 with eGPU connected is attached to this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/lenovo-t480s-tb3-egpu-amd-rx580-detection.272391/post-1915926...

    Lenovo T480S - TB3 eGPU (AMD RX580) detection

    @yypyypyyp hi Linus! Thanks for your reply! Yea, the USB-C works just fine - as well the hot-plugging is very reliable - good job! However, I actually realised that I need to tell Clover in the config file to load the TB3.aml - so I assumed Thunderbolt works only with TB3.aml and THBT.aml...

    Update: I created a thread for that concern here, hoping we can find the weak spot together https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/lenovo-t480s-tb3-egpu-amd-rx580-detection.272391/

    Coming from a MacBook, I perceived the fan noise under Windows as loud as well . However, with macOS the fan behaves more silent from what I perceive . Please find the benchmarks in the attachments.

    Lenovo T480S - TB3 eGPU (AMD RX580) detection

    Hi Folks, following scenario: My hardware is as follows: T480s + HP Omen Accelerator (AMD RX580) I already tried different patches (THBT.aml from T480S repo and TB3.aml from this thread.) without TB-3 or THBT.aml injected, the eGPU is detected when connected before boot, spins up and works...

    Success - macOS 10.14 on ThinkPad T480s

    Hi folks, just reverted to 10.14.2 as I read about 10.14.3 broke TB3-hotplug. However it ended up in the same situation. The GPU works like charm when plugged in during boot and the laptop crashes seconds after the TB3 cable was pulled. The only stable way right now is to use both the TB-3.aml...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Mojave VirtualSMC, I2C Trackpad, Clover UEFI Hotpatch

    That's what I observed as well with my T480S - I was wondering whether it worked with 10.14.2? https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/macos-10-14-3-supplemental-update-broke-thunderbolt-hot-swap.271720/post-1910669

    macOS 10.14.3 Supplemental Update Broke Thunderbolt Hot Swap

    I also made the following observations with my setup: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-macos-10-14-on-thinkpad-t480s.261318/post-1909488 However, I already started with 10.14.3 - so I have no evidence, if it worked with earlier versions. Best, Phil

    Hi, thank you for this repository/thread ! Everything went fine so far. However, I am still struggling with my TB3 devices (HP Omen Accelerator) - it starts spinning, but is not detected by macOS. In System Information it says: "Thunderbolt: No drivers are loaded." Tried with both settings...
