    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    the bios attached works perfectly on my rig BUT maybe a new one exists this one modified is stable ;) so no problem at all follow the way to patch it bec use sometimes it is pretty tricky to patch perfectly (I did it with the button on the back)

    [GUIDE] Full Power Management w/ Dual/Single Broadwell-EP/Haswell-EP CPUs on 10.12.

    thx a lot @metacollin just show my results (it looks not incredible but as I am working 24/7 with rendering, it is always good to have more than less) monocore: 14% more multi: 3% more also strangely I lost tiny bit in openCL/metal but I guess it is not related to it PS you have written...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    I wanted after a long discussion with @kgp there is tons of interest to be on AMD GPU (and much more when you can OC the graphic card) but unfortunately all my programs on Windows 10 use ONLY cuda if I install an AMD I will not be able to use any of those programs: photogrammetry etc etc :( I...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    new post with informations and a little question: About XEON v4, BIOS and GeekBench scores: As well described a 6950x or a 7980xe: needs to have in bios "Sync All Cores" activated, to increase the GB score the xeon v4 family works differently! After a fresh installation, I found that "sync all...

    if you cannot install the patched bios (which is pretty strange) as it is a X99 mobo you can activate the patch by clover: it is explained on part D.2.a activating of _xcpm_core_scope_msrs © Pike R.

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    As I am installing again X.13.6 i had to read again from scratch all the manual ;) but found some points that have some mistakes on writings (it is not a criticism at all, as the manual is well done, and I truly consider the @kgp manual as the reference that I use to all my rigs, it is just a...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    About CPU Microcode Update (B.1.1): i understood that it is for solving OC problems, but as having a Xeon (2696v4), I asked myself if the microcodes missing are exclusively linked to OC? (so nothing else) I didnt find any informations about that sorry or at the opposite a tiny difference can...

    iMac Pro X99 - Live the Future now with macOS 10.14 Mojave [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    I am sorry but I am afraid that I cannot help at all an ES is too tricky because the architecture is sometimes different: ES cover: alpha, beta and Release candidates CPU it means that if you are lucky it looks pretty the same than a standard one if you are not lucky: it will be unstable and...

    How to overclock my video card

    no of course the bootcamp cannot do it you are playing with fire: the OC of a pascal is more tricky than a Maxwell I advise you to do nothing and also you didnt read me well: on hackintosh the OC will not be useful AT ALL instead of you put free wattage but you dont have strong...

    How to overclock my video card

    someone called me :p 1st of all EFI and bios are 2 different things OK so Maxwell (980 Ti for example) and Pascal (1080) are totally different for BIOS you cannot OC a pascal as a Maxwell, forget it because the pascal works on a variable OC when Maxwell manages to have a max OC (frequency and...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    NICE can't wait to see your benchmark results ;) about CUDA, I found that program developed for MAC are more efficient with METAL (so VEGA) than with a Nvidia ad much more now when PASCAL are not able to keep the OC like Maxwell unfortunatelly from my side I work in dual boot and the...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    oh sorry yes right, I was focusing on Nvidia only but concerning dual Vega, how works the dual, so far the GPGPU doesnt work like CUDA (Nvidia) don't know how open CL can use it super well also I am curious to know how is the benefits on metal or metal 2 (with FCPX or any programs pretty...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    And it will not do I had to deal with playing with HT on and off, I posted many many messages here about that, as I didnt understand at all how HT and dual graphic cards could be linked i had a workstation working on Sierra only, with full acceleration and dual titan X OC on high Sierra it...

    Nvidia Drivers for Mojave 10.14 Not Available, no WorkAround works well

    was pretty the same deal when PASCAL came on the market it took Lon long time to Nvidia to create drivers for PASCAL I think Mojave brings tons of new things concerning metal and all related to graphic card (acceleration) I guess it is the problem and it will not be solved soon :(

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    finally I will jump to RADEON VEGA 64 (and leave my 1080Ti) As you recommended @kgp 1/ the problems of drivers (that if they are available are less optimized than with Maxwell or before) 2/ the fact that ALL programs under Mac OS are optimized for AMD 3/ the overclocking of Nvidia Pascal...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    A modded bios cannot flash with the tool inside the bios (flashing by choosing the bios on a USB) it needs to be done with the button on the back and mobo turned off it will never accept a bios modded by the normal way if someone read it and make a research, he will find it (I hope) ;)
