Those seem like outstanding GB5 scores.

My RX570 is an Asus ROG Strix 4 GB model. I downloaded GPU Tweak II from Asus and put the
card in Overclock-Mode but did not change any other default parameters. I don't think these settings
have any effect on macOS performance.

In Windows10 with OpenCore 0.6.3, I scored 28900 on Vulcan and 32216 on OpenCL.
I noticed that OpenCL test kept the GPU clock and memory clock at the maximum, but the Vulcan
test was mostly throttled down.

In Big Sur with OpenCore 0.6.3 and iMacPro SMBIOS, I scored 33053 on Metal and 32534 on OpenCL.
I'm currently just using Pavo's AGPMInjector and am otherwise not injecting any special RX570 parameters.

Can you run Furmark? I downloaded Furmark ROG Edition 0.8.5.0. I put it in 1920 x 1080 mode and ran the
1080 Benchmark Preset. It got 83-87 FPS at 80 degrees C for a score of 5061 points (84 FPS) and the fans
started going full blast.

I just wanted to report that I installed the new 10.15.7 security update
problem-free, and tested AppleTV DRM, VideoProc, and Geekbench on
my iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS on an HP8300 with an RX560. New Build is 19H15.

Also, I was reading the Dortania guide today, and noticed it calls for
installing SSDT-USBX for SMBIOS iMacPro1,1, so I installed it. It seems
that the kUSB power levels that I can see in IORegistry match those in
the SSDT. Still testing and working on the Big Sur update...

6:46PM update
Big Sur update went smoothly. New build is 11.0.1 Beta (20B5022a).
What kext and drivers are you using?

Asural, if you can see a mattystonie improvement, could you please post before and after scores
from Geekbench so user's can see what kind of improvements are possible?
Surprisingly, when I tried it your way, it worked fine.
It seems that mattystonnie's guide is no longer needed.
I'm currently using it with mattystonnie's guide and AGPMInjector.kext instead of dAGPM.kext.

I would like to contribute to this thread too using my OC (dortania guide) folder for 10.15.7 and HP Elite 8300 USFF/USDT with HD4000. Everything is running nicely but I cannot get sound working via Display Output/HDMI adapter as clover used to do before so well. Further help would be much appreciated. Serial has been cleansed. TIA

@LisaAlterEgo I thought CPUFriend is for 5th-10th gen intel only. Any guide for this?

EDIT 2:
Using the MacPro6,1 board ID now. Not sure if power management works because animations aren't smooth. But I think I am getting better Intel Power Gadget result.

EDIT 1:
I have used the wrong board ID.

Ive followed @LisaAlterEgo power management guide with ssdtprgen and CPUFriend. After a restart. The system became slow, stutters, and have reaching high utilization core in idle. Im on OC 0.6.3 Big Sur 11.0.1. Did I missed something?
