Lucky you! :)) Though now I'm really curious how did you manage that... Could you please, remove your private info from SMBIOS and upload your EFI folder? Something has to be different... Really weird.

Same here after upgrade to 10.14.5.

After updating, lose H265, purple stripes on boot, benchmark drop from 203000 to 143000 and the kext VGTab does not work the same, it adjust the MHZ from the memory, but it does not affect the fan rpm etc.

SMBIOS 14.2 + I7 4790K + VEGA 56 (Sapphire) + IGPU

Updated 10.14.5 with new usb patches.

x299 Aorus Gaming 9, i9-7920, Radeon Vega Frontier
Everything works well !!!

Unimportant observations: with this version, ...

... when starting in verbose mode (-v), a pruple horizontal lines appears at the top of the screen, just when the graphic is detected. I think it's the same thing that user @pastrychef has detected above.​
... also respect is noticed an improvement in the management of power / fan of the GPU, now it is quieter than the previous version. (I have installed VegaTab_FE.kext and SSDT-X299-Vega-Fontier.aml)​

VGTab seems to be working fine for me. But, Geekbench OpenCL scores seems to be lower for all Vega users.

@pastrychef

Would there be any benifits to update from 10.14.4 to 10.14.5 and switch to SMBIOS iMac19,1 or iMac19,2 for a Gigabyte Z390M Gaming with an Intel i7 8700 if I am using only the IGPU Intel UHD 630 ?

Thank you :)

We are straying a bit too far off topic. Please start a new thread and we can discuss it...

Geekbench 4 OpenCL Score dropped from 200k to 144k on my Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64

Anyone with similar issues?

Someone can test BruceX on the new release for performance drop?

BTW, same purple stripes here

Same here with Sapphire Nitro+ Rx Vega 64. Performance drop from 200000 to 150000.

Update would have been perfectly simple if I didn't update the BIOS to F14 during that process.
F14 prevented booting but a ACPI patch solved that and the update went through afterwards.
Purple stripes at boot but nothing to care about.
