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...
”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...
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...
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...
I decided to update things on my NUC7 running High Sierra, so I did:
Then I downloaded an installed the latest Clover. Checked for only EFI/Clover/kexts/Other to be existing. Updated (replaced)...
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).
New driver just released that I hear should help on the UI lag issue: 3188.8.131.52.30.106
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. :)
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...
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...
