Because you have a Z-170 system, use of iMac 18,2 with Mojave 10.14.6 is probably the most appropriate sysdef. My recommendation of iMac19,1 and iMacPro1,1 is for Z390-based systems. We find that iMacPro1,1 tends to provide better video editing / rendering performance than iMac19,1.Hi Casey
Trying to set-up my z-170 for pro apps and video editing. I-5 7500 new RX 580 Saphire in it. Mojave 10.14.6
I initially set it up with 18.2 sys definition and patched for headless
1- Am I set up properly for best performance on this system? (see screen shot and EFI folder)
clover 5114, Latest Lilu Whatevergreen...
Bios is : IGPU enabled,
Your going the extra mile guide seems to point towards 19.1 or ImPro 1.1...even for an older I5? Or has this evolved...since you wrote the guide with the newer Lilu and whatever green advancements.
I don't plan to use the IGPU to drive a monitor.
So keep 18.2 and
-remove Framebuffer stolen mem and Framebuffer Patch in devices properties?
or switch system def and disable IGPU in bios?
Feel free to give advice on right kext and or drivers if you feel like it.
One thing I find weird no usb 2 in system profile ( I have removed xcci-200 unsupported since then to see if it makes a difference)
You're welcome to try both iMac18,2 and iMacPro1,1.
If iGPU will not be used, then there are 2 options:
- Disable iGPU completely. This means disable it in BIOS and remove the entire device/properties section related to iGPU.
- Keep iGPU enabled, but set it into headless mode. This is done by changing ig-platform-id to the correct headless value for your iGPU (maybe 0x59120003). And remove all other WEG parameters except for framebuffer-patch-enable (and of course ig-platform-id).
