Thank you very much.It really comes down to personal choice and what you use your computer for ... if you just consume content and need accelerated H265 playback and DRM support in Safari (Netflix, Amazon Prime ..etc) then the best solution is to use the iMacPro1,1 workaround (disable IGPU and do not use any SHIKIGVA boot argument).
I did the test with ImacPro 1.1 (with CPUFriend and no SHIKIGVA) and it is curious to get more Score in the metal geekbench5, 53000 VS 50000 in Imac15,1 + IGPU.
On the other hand the GPU on the Imac 15.1 in idle is 500MHZ (memory), cooler and using less Watts.
In ImacPro 1.1 just open a video and then in idle it is always 920MHZ, which spends another 20 Watts.
Did that happen to you in ImacPro 1.1 too? After opening a video the memory is stuck at maximum Mhz?
