In the "About This Mac" my graphics show up as Intel UHD 630 as it should. But when looking at the Framebuffer Patching Guide, Step #6, using Hackintool to determine if the proper display patch is being used, I am getting an odd value, "Intel 8th Gen Core Processor Gaussian Mixture Model".
Thats the PCIe device descriptor text which Hackintool scrapes from a on-line PCIe Vendor & Device database.
Quite often the IGPU device descriptor text tends to be CPU generation generic and not IGPU specific.
There is no way to change it in Hackintool as it's only displaying what is in the on-line database. However if the "model" device Property for the IGPU has been set in your config.plist then you will notice the same IGPU name in the PCI list in About this Mac -> System Report -> PCI. Some Third party apps also use the "model" device property to display the IGPU device name (such as iStat Menus).
You can fix that issue by doing the following :-
- Open your config.plist in an editor
- Find the "Properties" sub-section of the "Devices" section of the config.plist
- Find the IGPU Device Properties which will be under <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key>
- Edit the <string> value for the IGPU Device Property "model"
- Set it to something like"Intel UHD 630 Graphics" (make sure that it starts with "Intel")
- Save and reboot
