Fantastic step by step. This will be my next build
Hi,Geekbench results are great ->

Hotplugging works with my UAD Arrow interface. What an awesome machine this is now. Installing a native WIFI card next, but that shouldn't be a problem. This will probably be my last Hackintosh.
Thank you so much for all that work you did on TB4 support, Leesureone!
The change is not likely due to the SYMBIOS definition being different, when you say you say you ran it before what was the difference? Why did you change anything, was it a different system the video card was in? My upload is pretty old, I don't even have this system anymore and its possible updating to a newer version of Opencore and the essential kexts might make a difference. Do you know how to do that? @AJAold old posted a newer version here yo can try #78Hi,
I have the same specs as you, with i7-11700K and RX6600XT
Before that I run my hackintosh with iMac Pro 1,1 smbios and my Metal Core score was 81000
However when I replace the EFI version of @Leesureone, I only get Metal Core 31000

I replace Leesureone's EFI folder with OC 0.7.7, and haven't updated anything yet.
Is the low performance because the OC version is too low?

After I upgraded OpenCore to 0.8.5, amazing, I saw Metal Core increase to 82000 pointsThe change is not likely due to the SYMBIOS definition being different, when you say you say you ran it before what was the difference?

Definitely odd behavior, a couple of questions.After I upgraded OpenCore to 0.8.5, amazing, I saw Metal Core increase to 82000 points
This is the correct score compared to the performance of the RX6600XT, and I have often received similar scores in previous tests, falling in the range of 81700-81900
However, today when I turned on the machine to work, I found the verbose screen to run very slow, and sure enough, I turned on GeekBench to test and the Metal score was only 26000 points.
Attempting to reboot the device for the first time and test again, I got a slightly higher score, 28000 points
Continue to reboot the machine for the second time, test again and surprisingly, the score is 87900
What a strange machine, and I really don't know where the fault lies, every time I feel my machine is slow, I check it and get a very low Metal score.
Has anyone had the same problem as me?

I do it in the followDefinitely odd behavior, a couple of questions.
Did you reset the NVRAM after updating? Probably not the issue but something easy to do as long as his EFI has that function enabled.
What Nvme SSD are you booting from?
One insight, that behavior sounds more like a hardware issue and not necessarily the graphics card. One way to check.
Does that behavior repeat itself in other operating systems?
RadeonBoost.kext was first used in Big Sur, I believe, and has since been deprecated. There were also some issues in earlier versions of Monterey that caused a slow down of some AMD GPUs but that was corrected with a system update.I do it in the follow
Replace your EFI, then upgrade to Opencore 0.8.5
Then when I start the machine, I cleared the NVRAM and restarted the machine
I'm using Samsung 980 Pro
I noticed that there are some use cases of RadeonBoost.Kext to overcome this situation, however it is for the RX5xxx Series. Will it work on RX6xxx Series??
I can get you more information later when I’m back at my desk but without any kexts or SSDTs at all, as long as Thinderbolt is enabled in the bios, devices should work if they are plugged in after a cold boot.I somehow broke Thunderbolt entirely when I either a) updated OC and kexts and/or b) made my custom USB map. What should I read up on as to what's important for Thunderbolt to work again?
The TB controller on this board is unstable anyway; I sometimes need to reinstall the drivers manually until the Arrow interface (which is usually unstable ALREADY) shows up... I'm serioulsy thinking about ditching this damn interface and Thunderbolt.
