1.) New macOS 10.14.5 Public Beta X99 EFI-Folder Source distribution.

2.) SSDT-X99-Radeon-VII.aml + SSDT-X99-HDEF.aml + SSDT-DTPG.aml

4.) Clover_v2.4k_r4918

Native Radeon VII implementation, including Hardware Acceleration, Display HotPlug, multi-monitor support, DP/HDMI Audio and system sleep/wake.

Apart from Luxmark, all other Radeon VII macOS benchmark scores are not optimal at present, mainly due to a yet to be optimised Radeon VII macOS driver implementation or some missing update of respective GPU benchmark programs, although I use a briefly adapted Radeon VII load table in my respective SSDTs. With the current Radeon VII macOS implementation, GPU temps keep low (40-50 deg C) even during Heaven and Valley benchmarks and even in case of the air flow Radeon VII, I am currently employing for testing purposes.

Enjoy and have fun,

Use AptioMemoryFix.efi as outlined in the guide and implemented in the original EFI-Folder distribution!

New X99 10.14.5 Beta EFI-Folder distribution adding Radeon VII GPU Temp sensor information for iStatMenus.

EFI-X99-10.14.5-Beta-iMacPro1,1-050419.zip

I just modified Kozlek/Interferenc FakeSMC/HWSensor source code distribution for adding Radeon VII GPU Temp sensor information and subsequently added new FakeSMC.kext and HWSensor.kexts to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other. The new GPU Sensor kext should now support all Vegas and also the new Radeon VII, when using iStatMenus.

Hi KGP,
I have aptiomemoryfix.efi in use, bios is patched, all settings in bios correct as in your instructions, tried with 4G enabled and disabled, Is there any chance the Deluxe 2 with latest bios is not compatible with it?
out of ideas, thank you. Attaching my full efi if you would be so kind and have a look into it, please.

Everybody is using the latest X99 BIOS for his specific ASUS motherboard. There is absolutely no chance that the BIOS you are using would be incompatible with the guide.

As I am not at home and not able to inspect your EFI-Folder just a quick question. Under which macOS version are you employing the attached EFI-Folder? Did you verify that you use the adequate Kext and Kernel patches for the respective macOS version?

System Version: macOS 10.14.4 (18E2034)
as a base I have used your 10.14.4 Special Build from post #661
Thanks

But which EFI-Folder distribution do you use? The one for 10.14.4?

Anyway, please verify your kext and kernel patches patches with those implemented in my 10.14.4 X99 EFI-Folder distribution.

It is weekend, Saturday 23:45, and very likely I won‘t be able to inspect your EFI-Folder before Monday.

Maybe you already identified your error by then.

We’ll see
