The Final Cut boost is major. It almost scaled exactly to a 25% boost. I did a pre-post test.Do you think this is due to RadeonBoost? If so, it would be one of a few examples of real world benefits.
Pre-Radeonkext I was taking about 58 seconds to export this specific project I was working on.
Same project export after applying it, I'm getting the export time in 41-42 seconds.
I'm also using Radeonkext 1.0 because I believe Vega 64 support was removed because of broken fan control (see this post: https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...-scores-use-radeonboost.2231366/post-28381763 )
Seems to be working fine on my end with my Sapphire+ Nitro. And even if it's not ramping it up correctly, it's not going any further over 50 degrees from my prolonged testing so far, so I'm happy with it.
Not to mention, Final Cut and the whole system overall seems MUCH more responsive (I thought it was perfectly fine before, but wow, this is great now).
This was my exact process for my backup drive (manually copying the EFI folder from the source to the destination drive).If macOS and the bootloader (Clover or OpenCore) are installed on the SATA SSD, then CCC is still my recommended app for cloning the SATA SSD to a new 8TB NVMe SSD. Just format the 8TB NVMe SSD ahead of time as follows:
You may either attach EFIClone to the CCC Task for automated backup of the EFI partition, or you may simply do this after the cloning task has finished:
- Name: Anything appropriate
- Format: APFS
- Scheme: GUID Partition Map <-- this is critical
- Mount EFI partition of Source and Destination SSDs
- Manually copy the EFI folder from Source to Destination
Then I gotta deal w/ all the weird activation nonsense that comes with booting from another drive, but that's relatively painless.
