Anyone else here noticed, after updating to 10.14.5, a drop in general performance? I'm seeing slow syscall performance throughout the system.

Thanks izo1, @mm2margaret , I am planning to get a Sapphire Radeon Pulse Vega 56 for 10.14.5 upgrade
I'd suggest the Vega 64 Nitro+, you've already plopped down this much money on the build :clap:

@mm2margaret @izo1 Questions: What does the AML file do for the Vega Cards? Why I don't need them for 10.14.5?
Sorry for the Noob questions... ;)
It's mostly cosmetic as it shows the correct names in system profiler.

WhateverGreen takes care of the port routing...

If you do want to get super technical, you can get rid of WhateverGreen and customize an SSDT to do all the work WG does and still show correct info in system profiler...but that's beyond my knowledge, maybe someone else can help.

Personally I just use WG and it's good enough for me, but I know some people will disagree.

.6 will make it better. There hasn't been a PB yet, they're going to make this as stable as possible.

I'm already on .6 :mrgreen:, the main problem though is that the performance impact doesn't show up this bad on a Macbook Pro. This might be related to the CPU emulation bits. Need to dig into it a little more

Not sure what GPU you're on, but for me it works really well with specs in my signature.

Generally it could be a tad snappier, but overall it's not bad. I think .3 was the fastest for me.

Looking at my extension on the system report, there are none of the Kexts in my config file showing. Is that normal?
Config files don’t contain kexts or give direction to kexts.

Your kexts should be in kexts/other

They are, is a kext a driver or extension that should be loaded at startup?

Should all the kexts in the /other folder also be installed into the S/L/E folder?

Use IOReg to look at what’s loaded.

No. Never put anything in S/L/E. That’s the whole point is to avoid that and rebuilding kext cache every time.

Only put it in .../other/ folder for on the fly loading of kexts.

This terminal command will list all non-apple kexts loaded, except for codeless / .plist only kexts:
Code:
kextstat | grep -v com.apple

Thanks Canyondust!

I just got up and running yesterday and I have been trying to get audio, so far no luck. I tried all 3 methods that KGP included in his Mojave instructions but none of them worked. Also my system fans are loud and they seem to speed up and slow down with no apparent reason. The only other onboard device not working is the WiFI, but according to my understanding there is no fix for the X299.

I copied my keststat below, I would appreciate you looking to see if there is anything astray.
