Are these AVX bios settings related to the setting "sync all cores"?
At the moment I use "by core usage", should I put your AVX settings nevertheless?

thanks
I would set them anyway

Hello,
I just successfully installed High Sierra on my PC - Asus X299 Mark 2 with i9-7940x and Nvidia Quadro M6000 24GB.
When I try to run some 3D app or app that is using more graphic power, it crashes :( report is having issues with graphics driver. I get tired of windows and linux doesn't give me apps I use for my work.
I know that there is an issue with my config file, but I am afraid when I edit something that my system will not boot it up.
I will really appreciate if someone can help me. Thank you.

Hello, are you using the latest SSDT for NVIDIA provided by KGP? have you checked the values with your ioreg? I ask because maybe, the quadro cards do not have the same values as the GTX. There is something that strikes me in the pictures you have sent, in the control panel of Nvidia, your card is not in any slot, you should show it in slot 1, maybe the problems come around, greetings.

If you really think your config.plist is suspect, I would suggest you post your config.plist file (blank out the SMBIOS section) and screenshots of these directories in your EFI folder (sort with dates): Kexts/Other, ACPI/Patched, and Drivers64.efi so others can see if they can find something that might need correcting....

Also, what version of Clover are you using?

Two likely important alternative comments for testing and to be discussed within our community:

1.) CPxx -> PRxx replacements and CPU thread ordering


In fact there is very simple and straight approach for achieving a fully automatic CPxx -> PRxx replacement and CPU thread ordering for any Skylake-X CPU on any X299 mainboard on the market.. However, so far I kept this latter approach secret as I do not no about negative side implications..

In any case, the latter approach would consist of implementing Apple's iMac Pro APIC table APIC.aml.zip in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/, which directly reveals a properly ordered PRxx CPU thread implementation after boot..

However, as stated above, the validity of this latter approach yet has to be confirmed by all users..

I put APIC.aml in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/. In ioregistryexplorer see this (*photo).

this is the correct order to rename?

Seems that apic.aml did not apply at all in your case..

any idea, or method?
Not really.. apic.aml in my case reveals a correct PRxx implementation.. try to use ssdt-1.aml, and or ssdt-2.aml, and or ssdt-3.aml of the imac-pro dump in addition...

BTW, when using apic.aml you removed all former CPxx -> PRxx ACPI replacements from config.plist.. correct?

I Disable all CPXX -> PRXX and put apic.aml in clover , reset and show what the photo.

I enabled CPXX -> PRXX same your guide and shows like this.

You cannot use my replacements for the i9-7900X..

Search along this thread for the proper code snippet for the i9-7900X.

in post #9888 I found this " @4min cloverfield" and I think it was useful and it worked well.

Now it looks like this, now is it right?
