sorry I have a little trouble with the translations, in fact my wifi card I did not have the choox to put it on the last pci-e port, while on your tutorial you indicate to have to put it on the last one pci x1, is the problem there?

Ah. Okay. Now I understand.

Please post your config.plist.

That is the only thing that can affect the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth slot.

Hey Chef could you describe how to change your clover 5126 EFI and OC EFI to iMac19,1? I tried myself and it mostly worked except I’m getting worse quality performance when editing in FCPX (on both clover 5126 and OC 0.6.2) compared to your clover 5120 EFI. I suspect there’s something not connecting right bc I’m not doing everything right to edit your iMacPro1,1 to be iMac19,1.

You can just open your old config.plist with a plist editor and copy the entire SMBIOS section. Then, just replace what is in the new config.plist.

There's nothing that should be affecting FCPX performance. There are no IGPU configurations in either the Clover or OpenCore EFIs. IGPU is auto detected.

I think it's known that iMac19,1 rendering is not as fast as iMacPro1,1. Diorama went through this pretty extensively in CaseySJ's thread. IIRC, under iMacPro, the rendering is done predominantly by the eGPU whereas in the iMac, the rendering is split between the iGPU and eGPU. So it is a trade off. With the iMac, you get slower rendering but you get Sidecar, and with the iMacPro you have faster rendering.

I switched BIOS splash screen again. Lol

Not retro enough for me!! :D

Actually, I switched to the White Apple on Black screen myself ... The Happy Mac experience just isn't complete without the startup chime. Now if Gigabyte would allow us to hack a startup chime.....

Thanks tedyun, I found what you describe with GPU and cpu use, but my result was actually the opposite on my machine - that iMac19,1 was considerably faster than iMacPro1,1 for me. Please see

Since I've found FCPX to export about 15% faster on iMac19,1 than on iMacPro1,1 (with no overclocking - Activity Monitor shows active cpu on iMac19,1 and idle cpu on iMacPro1,1) I prefer to use iMac19,1
