The "Performance Enhancement" patches (either as SSDT's or as Injected Properties) only effect the Apple AMD drivers and work on systems that have a Headless IGPU or a dGPU only configuration such as iMacPro1,1. The patches mainly only effect benchmark figures and have little effect on real world Apps, however some users have reported FPS improvements with some games when using the patches.
Then I suppose it will not affect power consumption, as that is where I have "doubts" since I am doing dual monitor setup with RX580 but it always shows full core clock and around 140W of power in idle.
I will check with actual power measurement from the CPU tomorrow to make a comparison and see if the HWMonitorSMC2 shows wrong power measurement as I found in some resources.
Thanks for your explanation.
