    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Casey, if you recall, this one got me, too until you clarified (and I educated myself about kernel versions). I think think the clarity that may be missing, is that perhaps folks just might need to hear that v71 isn't needed at all if they're never booting with Mojave. I understand you're...

    I've been a devoted Avid guy since the '90s, BUT, I would say that Resolve (Studio) is so far advanced and deep (and affordable) that it WILL take over in some circles I think -- probably ad agencies first, then it will spread like wildfire. I've been really pushing myself to use it not only as...

    I see the ever generous, Casey, replied, Weerik... If that's still unclear, I disabled SSDT-Z390-DESIGNARE-TB3HP-4.aml AND SSDT-TB3-HackinDROM.aml. I 'think' the latter one is really only for those who have flashed their Thunderbolt chips anyway. Lastly, I'm using a Sonnett eGFX 650. Good luck, J

    …and with two Radeon VIIs, I’m sure you’ll dethrone my machine! Also, I’m over clocked and running iMacPro SMBios. J

    @Weerik, I see Casey responded in another post, but I’d like to add that Casey helped me getting my similar configuration to work for my eGPU WITHOUT flashing the Thunderbolt bus. macOS of course DOES NOT recognize the eGPU for OS purposes. But Resolve DOES, and that’s all I care about. Casey...

    Only way I know is to Geekbench it without, then with and compare the scores.

    Ah, right forgot to clarify that: You need to leave the "ExecutablePath" empty, and fill "Contents" in to be "Contents/Info.plist." Then make sure you've got the check box enabled if you're using OCC. Make sense?

    Heads up it says not to install the .aml for your card.

    I wouldn’t expect your performance to be that bad without it. My internal Vega 64 was maybe a tiny bit low on the Geekbench score, but not nearly as bad as my Radeon VII in the Sonnet eGFX chassis. However, installing the Radeon boost did significantly help both, and now they’re scoring above...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Okay, I'm a total idiot. I have a second internal that I use as by clone both for EFI and boot. In all my OC shenanigans, I failed to notice that when I was going back to my Clover loader, the new BIOS changed the default UEFI to the clone's EFI which DID in fact have Radeon Boost. Once I...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    In Clover on Catalina I got better Radeon performance without Radeon Boost, so with this new OC, I did not install it. Gotta be something I’ve overlooked because it’s not CPU performance that’s down, just Radeon. My Clover Metal GB score with the VII was over 90k, with OC it’s 54k!! The...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Okay, that did it! I now have Radeon VII appearing in G/D and in Resolve. HOWEVER, the Geekbench scores of both my internal Vega64 and the eGPU Radeon VII are WAY down. And there does seem to be a performance hit in Resolve.

    1) I'd like to say "yes" :)) 2) I thought "SSDT-Z390-DESIGNARE-TB3HP-V4.aml was the hot plug SSDT? So BOTH are needed under OC? If that's the case, I'll disable TB3-HackinDROM too and report back! 3) Copy that, thanks! 4) eGPU Does NOT show up in Graphics/Displays, but DOES show up in PCI (but...

    Casey; I've been scouring trying to catch up by furiously reading all there is on OpenCore to leave my Clover world behind. Following all guides here, I've successfully booted using my new OC068 efi with Bios F9i on Catalina 10.15.7. Thanks! I have one or two newb questions, if you (or all the...

    Wow, I'm SO sorry I didn't see this! I got swamped with work and didn't get a notification. Yes, I use Resolve Studio (and other things). The system with an eGPU added is MUCH faster but that's based on the Resolve Standard Candle Test... it's actually the fastest 9900k on the list. The only...

    You are truly the Master. In my case, CSM didn't seem to matter, but removing the hotplug SSDT did the trick. Considering I'm running the LG UF 5k on one TB, and the eGPU on the other, it's no big deal to loose that. I'll have to run some speed tests to see if CSM on/off makes any difference...

    Casey, First off; I've been following this guide for years, and I have built 3 Designare systems using it. Thank you so so very much for such an unbelievable body of work. I confess, I stopped reading EVERY post a few thousand ago! But I do search and scour when needed. My current system...

    Has anyone gotten an Inland Premium NVMe M.2 to work?

    For what it’s worth, I’ve gotten it to work fully, and, although I didn’t install directly to it (I bet it could be done), I cloned my successful install to it. It’s now my boot drive. No NVMExpressDXE.efi needed as I’m on Mojave.
