I just checked the Sytem Profiler. Same behaviour over here!

Indeed, the power management solution is not optimal, but as long as there´s no permanent fix I´ll use 2 configs, one for audio, one for regular work.

I would not call this power management solution. The workaround rather disables any CPU power management!

Followed the guide with my 7820X on an X299-A and it's working pretty well.
Things seem to be running pretty smooth. Got 36k+ in Geekbench (4.6GHz @ 1.2V) and I'm going to keep fiddling with it soon… I already bought a delid service; just have to find the time to send it in (this is my main PC).
Keep us posted with the deliding. I get similar performance with air cooling:
Geekbench: 5504 / 36366 @ 4.4GHz

@kgp do you know which setting in the bios that controls USB power? I would like any USB power to turn off when System is in shutdown mode?

Thank you in advance

Hey Guys, I managed to get a few dumps of the new iMac Pro from the Apple store. I got an IOReg dump, System profiler and Darwin Dumper (everything that didn't need an Admin password).

@TheOfficialGypsy You should send them to the clover Configurator guys. With this files they can implement smbios iMac Pro.

@flymovies : Can you save your bios Settings as an CMO File to an usb stick and upload them afterwards here? I wanna try some stuff and see if I get the same problems like you.
Just sent them a message. From what I have examined in IOReg, the iMac Pro uses 'PC01', 'PC02', 'PC03' and 'PCI0'. Also the Xeon processor comes under 'PR00' instead of 'CP00'. The GPU comes under 'GFX0'.
Will keep examining :)

Same for me... Can you please forward your question directly to Nvidia?

Can you pass your system or dumps through Avast Antivir and reload the zip file in post #2913?

When I try to open the zip, Avast blocks at least 6 threads with Malware-gen [Trj] and DirectHW-E [PUP] infections...

With Avast installed the attached zip is useless and can't be opened..
