    Catalina watchdog timeout KP on shutdown or restart

    Just wanted to say that I've been getting the same (especially when waking from sleep) on a ”real” Mac Pro Mid 2010 (aka MacPro5,1) since I installed Catalina 10.15.2 and a RX 5700 XT graphics card. Continues to this day with Catalina 10.15.7 (19H15). I have no idea what's triggering it. I...

    Strange panic "watchdog"

    ”Real” Macs see this too. I have the same problem with ”userspace watchdog timeout: no successful checkins from com.apple.WindowServer Kernel Panics from time to time when waking my Mac Pro (Mid 2010) from sleep, and while that computer isn't supported by Apple for use with Catalina a lot of...

    << Solved >> Do the Samsung 970 EVO Plus drives work ? New Firmware Available 2B2QEXM7

    There are other benefits than pure data transfer speed, such as power consumption: The 970 EVO Plus brings modest improvements to both active idle and deep idle power consumption Another is idle wakeup time: The idle wake-up latency of the 970 EVO Plus is about half that of the original 970...

    [Guide] Intel NUC7/NUC8 using Clover UEFI (NUC7i7Bxx,NUC8i7Bxx,etc)

    Just wondering if anyone has tried playing Starcraft 2 on a NUC7 (Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640) with High Sierra 10.13.6? I get a total system freeze some minutes after starting a game (i.e. in game, not the game menus). No idea why this happens as I have zero stability problems with any other...

    [Guide] Intel NUC7/NUC8 using Clover UEFI (NUC7i7Bxx,NUC8i7Bxx,etc)

    Hi guys! I decided to update things on my NUC7 running High Sierra, so I did: git stash git pull make clean make make install_nuc7 ./download.sh ./install_downloads.sh Then I downloaded an installed the latest Clover. Checked for only EFI/Clover/kexts/Other to be existing. Updated (replaced)...

    << Solved >> Do the Samsung 970 EVO Plus drives work ? New Firmware Available 2B2QEXM7

    I had the 970 EVO Plus but returned it due to the Kernel Panics. Two months later a firmware fix is released for the 970 Plus and it's too late for me to return the 970 EVO. :-/ Oh, well... Good the difference isn't too big (same controller).

    Samsung 970 EVO PLUS M.2 NVMe SSD is ok

    So no Kernel Panics after the firmware update? Is it Kernel Panics that happen for you with the 970 EVO Plus despite having updated to the latest firmware?

    But pretty crazy what happens to the price when increasing storage and memory? Good thing RAM can be bought elsewhere.

    I'm curios what @RehabMan thinks of the new Mac mini. Maybe not the right forum, but not totally unrelated, right? :)

    Report your NVIDIA Web Driver and CUDA issues and I'll pass them on to the developers

    That's interesting that it worked in El Cap, but I'm not sure if Nvidia will do anything about dual GPU problems since it's very Hackintosh specific. :) I guess it wouldn't hurt to mention it, though…

    Report your NVIDIA Web Driver and CUDA issues and I'll pass them on to the developers

    New driver just released that I hear should help on the UI lag issue: 387.10.10.10.30.106 It also supposedly fixes some occasional color artifacts I've seen show up in windows especially in the Finder (on my GTX 970 at least). Let's see how it works. :)

    [Guide] Intel Kaby Lake NUC7 using Clover UEFI (NUC7i7BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i3BNH, etc)

    Do you think it's safe to update to 10.13.4? Seems there has been quite a lot of firmware updates included for many Macs in the 10.13.4 update, but I guess that won't affect our NUC installations?

    Any difference with macOS 10.13.4 and Web Driver 387.10.10.10.30.103?

    Fortnite lags terribly on my 8700k Rx 480 build

    Same thing for me on macOS 10.13.4 and the accompanying Web Drivers didn't make a difference. I'm on a ”real” Mac Pro (Mid 2010) with GTX 970 graphics. I've also tried it a few weeks ago on a MacBook Pro (Late 2013) on macOS 10.13.3, both using built-in graphics drivers and the Nvidia Web...

    @ttavyy Just want to say that for rebuilding the fixing (i.e. rebuilding) the filesystem of a HFS+ drive I wholeheartedly recommend DiskWarrior (they are working on a version that supports APFS) which is much better than Disk Utility at fixing file system problems. If you can connect your drive...

    Just wanted to say I did some quick testing viewing the same video on YouTube that you have in your first link (DigitalFoundry) and on my Mac Pro (Mid 2010) with a GTX 970 I do see stuttering (@1080p60) some seconds into the video, but only if I use Firefox. If I use Safari (like you do in your...

    These slowdowns seems to be gone since macOS 10.13.3, right? Edit: Sorry for triple post…
